Mayor's Office of New Urban Mechanics

The Mayor's Office of New Urban Mechanics is an approach to civic innovation focused on delivering transformative City services to Boston's residents.


Boston’s Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics (MONUM) pilots experiments that offer the potential to improve radically the quality of City services. MONUM focuses on three major issue areas: Participatory Urbanism, Clicks & Bricks, and Education. To design, conduct and evaluate pilot projects in these areas, MONUM builds partnerships between constituents, academics, entrepreneurs, non-profits and City staff.

If you would like to work with us on an idea you have to make Boston even better, we would love to hear from you.  You can learn more about our work below, or follow our work through our blog or on twitter.
