Millenium Ten Initiative


(617) 338-0411




Millennium Ten is a coalition of longstanding community partners and new leaders that have come together to encourage residents and stakeholders to define what's next for neighborhood, specifically the Talbot Norfolk Triangle (TNT) and Four Corners neighborhoods.

The Millennium Ten neighborhoods are at the hub of new transit in Boston.  The MBTA is adding two new transit stations in the area:  one on Talbot Ave near the heart of Codman Square and another in Four Corners on Washington Street.  These two new transit stations will speed access to downtown for residents and offer an opportunity to local business in Four Corners and Codman.  This process will help leverage the possibilities in the time of growth.

The process focuses on working with neighbors, business owners, community organizations and other members of the community, tapping on their wisdom, experience and energy to take action.

Neighborhood Response Team (NRT)



Email: (Bowdoin-Geneva); (Mattapan)


The Neighborhood Response Team (NRT), a cross-departmental group representing Public Works, Transportation, Inspectional Services, and the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services, seeks to address the local and specific issues affecting Boston's neighborhoods. Meeting with residents, community organizations, and numerous municipal bodies, the Team will focus on basic city services and improvements such as street lighting and sidewalk repairs, prioritizing trash and debris removal, and cracking down on problem properties and health and safety violations.

As of Nov. 2011, there are three regular NRT meetings, to address Mattapan, Codman Square, and Four Corners; Dudley Square and Blue Hill Ave.; and the Bowdoin-Geneva areas. The meetings are co-chaired, with one chair representing an official body (such as the Office of Health and Human Services) and other representing area residents. 

The Mattapan/Codman Square/Four Corners meeting covers city services, with (as of Nov. 2011) a noted emphasis on foreclosure/absenteeism.

Likewise, the Dudley/Blue Hill Ave. meeting covers city services. Prostitution is seen to be particularly bad problem in the area and many interdepartmental actions have worked to address this issue (as of Nov. 2011).

The Bowdoin-Geneva meeting incorporates human services in addition to city services, with an emphasis on youth development and violence prevention -- specifically, the Violence Intervention and Prevention Initiative. See a release on the formation of the Bowdoin-Geneva NRT here.
