The local Olympic organizing committee, Boston 2024, announced Wednesday it will hold 20 community meetings across the state over the next 20 weeks, to answer questions and solicit ideas for Boston’s bid to host the 2024 Summer Games.
“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,” Richard Davey, chief executive of Boston 2024, said in a statement.
The series will include meetings in Boston, Cambridge, Lowell, Newton, Somerville, the South Coast, Springfield, and Worcester, according to Boston 2024.
The group said details on times and locations of the meetings will be released soon. The first few meetings include Boston at 6 p.m. Monday in the Yawkey Boys & Girls Club of Roxbury; 6 p.m. March 11 at Lowell City Hall; March 18 in Cambridge; April 2 in Springfield; and April 7 in Malden.
