The Office of Government and Community Affairs (OGCA) is Massport’s primary contact with local, state, and federal governmental officials, legislative bodies, and other public agencies regarding the communication of Massport plans and projects. OGCA’s other principal function is to inform residents and opinion leaders of its impacted communities about those operational changes, new projects, and proposed developments that might impact their environmental quality of life. To develop plans and proposals that are as compatible as possible with community interests we regularly solicit feedback from interested parties in order to minimize operational impacts and/or create final project plans that find environmentally-friendly ways to accomplish our operational goals.
We also manage Massport’s community partnership programs. We strive to help community entities achieve their enhancement goals; and provide access to the economic benefits generated by Massport in terms of goods and service contracts, jobs and the like. Through our commitment to build strong community partnerships we utilize employees’ expertise, time and/other Authority resources to enhance community and volunteer participation in community campaigns and programs (e.g. park cleanups, special event planning and promotion, advisory boards, fundraising, employment/interview and skill training, etc.).
