South Boston Neighborhood Associations Committee

The South Boston Neighborhood Association Committee (SBNAC) is an organization whose members consist of South Boston neighborhood associations. All such associations are invited to join. Its current members are listed below. Our mission includes (1) reducing duplicative meetings among the associations on community-wide issues; (2) speaking with a combined voice on community-wide issues where there is a consensus; and (3) sponsoring and hosting meetings & communications on community wide-issues as to which there is not a consensus.

South Boston is a densely populous neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, located south and east of the Fort Point Channel and abutting Dorchester Bay. One of America's oldest and most historic neighborhoods, South Boston was formerly known as Dorchester Neck and is today called "Southie" by its residents.

Long known as a working class Irish-American neighborhood, it is also home to the Boston area's small but vibrant Polish and Lithuanian communities. South Boston contains Dorchester Heights, where George Washington historically forced British troops to evacuate during the American Revolutionary War. In addition to being home to some of the oldest housing projects in the United States, South Boston has also more recently seen property values join the highest in the city.
