Mission Statement

NCP's primary mission is to promote economic/neighborhood development that will result in the growth of industrial sector jobs and workforce development in the Newmarket Industrial District of Boston. Our goal is to create 1000 jobs over the next 4 years. To do this we are actively involved in the revitalization of vacant/underutilized industrial properties/buildings in the District, we are working to create incentives for new businesses to locate here and others to grow here, with the incentives tied to their commitment to hire from the local communities, specifically those communities along the Fairmount Corridor and we are committed to connecting local job seekers with available jobs in the District and the training facilities available to prepare them for those jobs.


Background Statement

The Newmarket Square area was created in 1953 to relocate many of the meatpacking and food processing companies from the Faneuil Hall Market and Haymarket in downtown Boston so that these areas could be developed for office space, tourism, retail shops and restaurants. This relocation took place throughout the 1950’s and into the early 60’s.

Then in 1976, a small group of 5-10 Newmarket area business and property owners met among themselves and decided that it was time that they and other business and property owners in the area banded together, to further common goals, including the economic growth of the area,

From this small meeting, the Newmarket Business Association was born. Today, the Newmarket Business Association represents over 200 members and is deeply involved in all facets of business growth, development and quality of life in the Newmarket area.

It is as a result of the Association’s involvement in the area and the limitations to what it could do as a business association that in 2015 a group of NBA members determined that it was time to do more.

The “more” was the creation of Newmarket Community Partners, an organization that by its very name was meant to partner with others to improve the community.

Newmarket Community Partners, Inc. is actively involved in the revitalization of vacant/underutilized industrial properties/buildings in the Newmarket Industrial District. Currently, many of these properties contain antiquated buildings that require significant renovation investment. NCP currently is involved in creating incentives with the City of Boston that will spawn industrial growth on these properties and increase the number of industrial jobs in the area. The importance of these industrial jobs is that they are, vastly, sustainable wage jobs that are important to the vibrancy of the local neighborhoods.

In the future, Newmarket Community Partners, Inc. plans to produce a District marketing packet designed to promote the Newmarket Industrial District to companies, developers, etc., looking to site industrial/commercial businesses in Massachusetts as well as those existing companies looking to grow. It is our intention to actively market the area to these companies. The result will be more business and more jobs.

Needs Statement

1. Operating funds to build administrative staff and office capabilities so Executive Director can focus on the continued growth of our partnerships, Program expansion, Mission Outreach and Fundraising. ($50k)

2. Operating Funds to hire program staff to manage Jobs Catalyst/Database Program and future programs, and work closely with community partners to create Workforce Development Initiatives ($50k)

3. Internally generated revenue from initial development projects to provide ongoing funding to enable NCP's future development projects. NCP's first JV light industrial development with Dorchester Bay EDC will provide NCP $15K in 2016 overhead and $60-$65K in overhead/fee in 2017. Equity distributions from operating cash flow grows from $7k(yr 1) to $17K(yr 12). NCP will be earning 3rd party consulting fees for marketing, lease ups, and rooftop solar.

4. Marketing program funds. Program would focus on two areas. Outreach associated with Jobs Catalyst Program in order to insure maximum participation and outreach promoting incentives and benefits of locating or growing a business in the District. ($5,000-$10,000.)

5. Technical assistance support funding specifically to increase fundraising capabilities, strengthen project expertise and move projects forward.($50k)


CEO Statement

For me, Newmarket Community Partners is the culmination of 24 years of steadily increasing the involvement of local business owners as stakeholders and partners in the community.  Over that time, the Newmarket District has become home to over 28,000 employees and we are very proud of the fact that more than 35% of those employees live less than 5 miles from their job. Couple that with the fact that the average non-management wage is over $18.per hour and large numbers of Newmarket employees remain at their jobs for 10-20 years, and you can easily see the compelling argument for protecting and growing this valuable job-generating district.
 As NBA's Executive Director over the past 24 years, and now as the Executive Director of Newmarket Community Partners, I am excited about the future.  Newmarket Community Partners is committed to creating/filling over 1000 jobs in the Newmarket area over the next 4 years and specifically to focus on filling those with members of the local community.  This is not a lofty goal.  It is realistic and achievable.  Our history, our knowledge of the business community and our relationships with our community partners, make us uniquely able to bring this about.

Board Chair Statement

Newmarket Community Partners, a sister organization to the Newmarket Business Association, was created by a group of very passionate and committed business people who want to help shape the future of the area by becoming proactive.

Our board includes vested members of the community from entities including Suffolk Construction and the Greater Boston Food Bank among others. I have personally been involved in the Newmarket area most of my life as my family owned and operated an industrial business here for over 40 years.

Today, as a property owner in the area and owner of several businesses, I am more committed than ever to Newmarket's continued growth as an economic engine and job center for the City.

We believe the Newmarket area is critical to the future growth and job base of the City of Boston but want to ensure that the growth is done smartly, with the input of the long time industrial base and employers of the area. That is why part of our mission is the revitalization of under-utilized industrial spaces to create new vertically-oriented industrial space that will bring new business and good paying blue collar jobs that can be filled by those living in the local neighborhoods.

We have been successful thus far in our first joint development venture, which has finished the permitting process and is currently in the middle of the funding process. We are planning to break ground in fall of 2016. In addition, we are currently initiating a second development project.

The challenges that we face with these projects, of course, is financial. Lacking resources, we have been aggressive in creating relationships with well established partners who share our passion for job growth and neighborhood economic vitality. what we lack in resources, however, we make up for in passion. I am involved because I know we are making a difference. We have an involved Board, a tireless Executive Director and all we need is additional funding in order to increase capacity. I have every confidence in our continued success.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
