The St. Marks Area Civic Association is a group of community conscious residents who want to improve the quality of life in our section of Dorchester. We meet in the lower hall of St, Marks Church, located at 1725 Dorchester Avenue on the last Tuesday of the month @ 7:00 p.m. The Civic Association is usually in recess for the months of July and August. The executive board of the Association meets on the first Tuesday of the month.
Please attend this meeting and meet with our public officials to see how we can make our neighborhood a safer place to live, work and raise a family.

The St. Marks Area Civic Association is committed to working cooperatively with housing development proponents in our neighborhood. We are also determined to maintain the structural integrity of our community and protect the property interests of our neighbors. In order for the association to thoroughly evaluate your proposal, we ask that you present the following information to the Association:
Architectural plans that provide external specifications including widths, elevations, total square footage and exterior architectural renderings.
A site survey plan that shows property lines, the location of the proposed development on the site, property line setbacks and any existing structures including houses, sheds and garages.
Any proposed demolition plans of existing structures.
Any environmental remediation plans if necessary.
Parking plans including number of off-street parking spaces per proposed unit and the proposed location of those parking spaces.
Square footage of each proposed unit and number of bedrooms per unit.
A list of any abutter concerns that you are aware of and your proposal to address those concerns.
A list of variances that you anticipate requesting from the City of Boston Zoning Board of Appeal including the section of the zoning code that you will seek relief from and an explanation of that section.
We strongly suggest that you meet all of the above criteria that pertain to your proposal before you contact the Association to set up a meeting. If there are specific issues with your proposal that you feel are unique, please contact us. We may require a site visit. After our initial meeting, there may still be concerns or unresolved issues. This could result in a subsequent meeting before the Association makes a recommendation. Lastly, we request that you personally attend any open meeting of the Association on your proposal and address any questions or concerns of our members.
