Le conseil se concentre sur les questions relatives à l'utilisation des terres, au développement, à la politique publique, au budget et à d'autres questions importantes ayant des implications potentielles à l'échelle du borough. Le conseil entend les présentations des fonctionnaires de la ville et d'autres personnes et, dans le cadre du processus d'examen de l'utilisation des terres, il est parfois appelé à voter sur des questions d'utilisation des terres qui ont un impact sur plus d'un district du conseil communautaire.
