Our mission is to address present and future needs and concerns while protecting and preserving this historic neighborhood’s past.  We serve as the Wharf District’s voice in matters requiring community action.


are responsible and high quality



to address neighborhood needs and respond to change


of this distinctive historical waterfront neighborhood, including a vibrant mix of businesses, hotels and restaurants along with residential buildings & non-profits such as the Greenway & New England Aquarium.

Established in 2010, the Wharf District Council (WDC) is a 501(C)3 non-profit neighborhood organization, made up of large and small businesses, residential condominium associations, and nonprofit institutions located in the Wharf District neighborhood; as well as, individuals who live and/or work in the Wharf District. The WDC works for the betterment of the Wharf District and its future by bringing the neighborhood’s residents, businesses, and nonprofits together to discuss matters impacting the community. We advocate for the Wharf District's people by working on plans, projects, quality of life issues. 


We work through meetings, events, and communications to build awareness and establish relationships within the community and with elected officials, government agencies, institutions, and other Boston neighborhood organizations. Monthly meetings are open to the public and held on the third Tuesday of every month. 


Our work is made possible thanks to the community’s support through WDC memberships, donations, and volunteering.

  • The WDC is managed by its President and Officers, who are elected by the Board of Directors; an Executive Director; and an appointed Member Advisory Group.

  • The WDC Board of Directors is made up of members who are appointed by the Corporate Organizations holding membership in the WDC. These members also serve as the Executive Committee, which meets to discuss and vote on WDC positions and on policy decisions. WDC members may serve on the Advisory Group, as well as project teams and working committees.

The work of the WDC has increased as the Wharf District grows.  Planning for the future is essential and must include protecting the District, located on the waterfront, from the impact of Climate Change and sea level rise.​
