Welcome to the Charlestown Neighborhood Council


A welcome message from the CNC

Welcome to the Charlestown Neighborhood Council website. We strive to facilitate communication between our neighborhood and the government of the city of Boston. Beyond that simple mandate, we additionally work to foster a sense of community and provide a welcoming forum for neighbors of every background to come together to share ideas.

2023 At-large Election:

On December 7, 2023, the council seated eight (8) at-large members to serve three (3) year terms: Philip X Carr III, Thomas Cunha, Elaine Donovan, Crystal Galvin, Johanna Hynes, JD Mangrum, Kelly Tucker, and Erin Woods.  

Thank-you departing members!

Three (3) at-large council members  - Barbara Babin, Ed Grace, and John Caldwell - chose not to run for re-election and their terms ended at the December CNC meeting.  Barbara Babin and Ed Grace retired from the council after 25 and 32 years, respectively.  We are grateful for their lengthy service and unwavering dedication to Charlestown.   Nancy Johnsen, the 02129 Neighbor Alliance representative, will end her term on December 31, 2023. The work of these four (4) departing council members has benefitted the community in innumerable ways. We will miss them all!
