Joseph Risi, chairman of Community Board 1, announced his resignation at the monthly board meeting Tuesday night.
Risi, who spent 25 years on the board and was chairman for the past two, was appointed a Supreme Court Circuit judge earlier this week by Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Norma Nieves-Blas, the first vice chairperson of the board, has taken over as chair on an interim basis.
The board will vote on a new chair in September.
