Report by the Special Olympic Commission

Last week the Special Commission Relative to the Feasibility of Hosting the Summer Olympics in the Commonwealth released their findings in a report regarding a possible bid for the 2024 summer Olympics.  The 11 member special commission, which was established by the legislature and signed into law by the governor on October 31, 2013, worked diligently to review the different aspects surrounding the issues for a potential bid.  Those issues include:

·         Economic development and Infrastructure;

·         Tourism, Outreach, and Marketing the Legacy; and

·         Safety and Security.

This report is just the first step in the vetting process of whether or not it would ultimately be feasible for Boston and the region to host such an event.  Posted below is the special commission’s report.
