Communities. 1. CBAs may give neighborhoods a more meaningful role in the development process than the opportunities the existing land use process provides for public participation. Those who champion CBAs on behalf of local communities articulate several justifications for the agreements. First, they argue that the local government’s normal land use procedures often fail to ensure that the concerns of the neighborhood most affected by the proposed development are considered and adequately addressed.147 They argue that the representatives of the neighborhood are not effective in advocating for the community. In New York City, for example, the community boards’ recommendations are advisory only, and may be ignored by the Borough Presidents, City Planning Commission, City Council and Mayor. Elected officials could disregard a community 146 Cite to cases using the extortion analogy. 147 More generally, communities in many cities have turned the CBAs out of frustration with the lack of meaningful opportunities for communities to participate in the planning and design of federal urban renewal projects, community economic development programs, and land use decisions more generally. See, e.g., Ho, supra note Error! Bookmark not defined. , at 11-19. boards’ recommendations for appropriate reasons, such as the City’s need for a particular development, but may also be perceived as disregarding the community’s concerns because they depend upon developers for campaign contributions or other political support.148 The community boards are given few resources and little training to evaluate development proposals. Members serve at the pleasure of the Borough President, who sometimes replace members whose views he or she doesn’t like. Finally, while New York City gives communities the power to propose their own plans, there is wide-spread dissatisfaction with that process. Similar complaints are heard in many (if not most) local governments across the country. Perhaps not surprisingly, then, neighborhoods wishing to have a more significant role in the land use process see CBAs as a more direct and powerful way for the community to shape their neighborhood’s development.
