Bring The 2024 Summer Olympics To Boston? [POLL]

Boston, Washington, San Francisco and L.A. are in the running to host the 2024 Summer Olympics. The Games would require the construction of an Olympic Village for about 15,000 athletes and coaches for the three weeks they’d be staying in the Hub.

An elite group of some of the state’s most powerful business leaders and development specialists have been quietly exploring the prospect of Boston in 2024. The effort, led by John F. Fish, chairman of Suffolk Construction, has already begun behind closed doors.

A development like this would obviously be a huge job creator, as well as leave lasting improvements to Boston’s housing stock and transportation network. And, there’s the ancillary and residual business that would be realized regionally.

One of the advisors is former Gov. Mitt Romney, who ran the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Games. He’s saying Boston would be a fantastic place for the Olympics! What do you say?
