There’s been a lot of debate over Boston 2024 and whether the Olympics in Boston is a once in a lifetime dream event or a living nightmare. You be the judge. Come get the facts! On Wednesday, January 21st at 6pm at the Boston Convention Center, Boston 2024 will host the first meeting of its Citizen’s Advisory Group. The meeting is open to the public and will include a detailed presentation on the plan presented to the USOC. Boston 2024 will also make available supporting documents presented to the USOC by Boston 2024.
As stated previously, there is a limited amount of proprietary information that the USOC has asked Boston 2024 not to release because they believe it will put Boston and the United States at a competitive disadvantage. All supporting documents with the exception of that proprietary information will be released to the media and the public. The meeting will also be live streamed from Boston 2024’s website – http://www.2024boston.org/
This meeting is in addition to the 9 community meetings that Mayor Walsh has announced starting this month. There will be a South Boston community meeting on February 24th at 6:30pm at the Condon School – 200 D Street.
About the Boston 2024 Partnership
The Boston 2024 Partnership, Inc. is a privately-funded non-profit formed by members of the business and civic communities with the goal of bringing the Summer Olympics and Paralympics to Boston in 2024. The effort grew out of a report by a special legislative commission that examined the feasibility of Boston hosting the Games.
This diverse group of business, community and political leaders has been working diligently with urban planners, local activists and financial experts on Boston’s Olympic bid. The partnership is exploring the exciting potential of a Boston Olympics and Paralympics as well as how the Games could complement existing long-term transportation, infrastructure and economic development plans for Boston and Massachusetts.
