The Community Relations Board was established in 1945, and was the first such body in the country to be established by municipal ordinance (Cleveland Codified Ordinances).
The Mayor serves as Chairman ex-officio of the Community Relations Board and appoints, with the approval of City Council, 14 members to serve four-year terms. The Board represents the social, economic and cultural interests of the community. In addition, City Council appoints two of its members to serve two-year terms.
