The GMNC brings together the economically, ethnically, and otherwise diverse Greater Mattapan Area neighborhood, to make decisions and recommendations regarding projects that may impact land use, development, service delivery, youth affairs, and other public issues in our shared community and to protect the significant open space and notable natural features of areas in the Greater Mattapan area.

The GMNC offers the residents of Greater Mattapan area the opportunity to participate fully and directly in governing neighborhood affairs and other issues relating to the quality of life of the Greater Mattapan community.

Elections to the council are held every two years, with members representing different areas of Greater Mattapan. Council meetings are typically held on the first Monday of each month and are open to the public. We encourage members of the community to become involved by attending these meetings, proposing agenda items, speaking on current topics, and joining the Council’s different working committees.
