Mission: 

Millennium Ten is a coalition of longstanding community partners and new leaders that have come together to encourage residents and stakeholders to define what's next for neighborhood, specifically the Talbot Norfolk Triangle (TNT) and Four Corners neighborhoods.

The Millennium Ten neighborhoods are at the hub of new transit in Boston.  The MBTA is adding two new transit stations in the area:  one on Talbot Ave near the heart of Codman Square and another in Four Corners on Washington Street.  These two new transit stations will speed access to downtown for residents and offer an opportunity to local business in Four Corners and Codman.  This process will help leverage the possibilities in the time of growth.

The process focuses on working with neighbors, business owners, community organizations and other members of the community, tapping on their wisdom, experience and energy to take action.
