Boston 2024 Olympics Community Meeting To Be Held at Stonehill

April 13, 2015


Boston 2024 has launched a series of 20 statewide community meetings over 20 weeks to give the public across Massachusetts an opportunity to ask questions, offer ideas, and help shape the bid to host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. On Wednesday, April 22 at 6:30 p.m. in Alumni Hall, Stonehill College’s Martin Institute will host a Boston 2024 meeting.  All are welcome to attend.

The purpose of these meetings is quite simple— to listen to the people of Massachusetts and use those conversations to help shape the bid to bring the Games to the United States," said Rich Davey, CEO of Boston 2024. "We want to hear residents' ideas on how the Games can touch every part of the state and we also want to hear any concerns and answer any questions. In the end, these will be Massachusetts' Olympic and Paralympic Games and we are committed to every corner of the state having a voice in this effort."

About the Boston 2024 Partnership
The Boston 2024 Partnership, Inc. is a privately-funded non-profit consisting of leaders in the  business, university, and civic communities as well as Olympic and Paralympic athletes and supporters who share the goal of bringing the Olympic and Paralympic Games to Massachusetts in 2024.

The partnership is exploring the exciting potential of a Boston Olympic and Paralympic Games as well as how the Games could complement existing long-term transportation, infrastructure and economic development plans for Boston and Massachusetts.

On January 8, 2015, the United States Olympic Committee selected Boston as its applicant city to host the 2024 Olympic & Paralympic Games.   Having been selected as a partner to the USOC, Boston 2024 will work with local communities and the USOC to further develop its bid prior to its first submission to the International Olympic Committee in December 2016. The IOC will select the host city for the 2024 Games in summer 2017.
