A private group, the Boston Olympic Exploratory Committee, wants to bring the 2024 Summer Games to Boston, reports the Boston Globe:

Two weeks ago, the United States Olympic Committee solicited bids from Boston and 34 other municipalities. The positive report from the Monday meeting at City Hall is the earliest indication the city may give the idea real consideration.

The group hopes to gain Mayor Thomas M. Menino's approval soon, and it has already started its marketing campaign including reserving the Internet domain, www.boston-2024.org, setting up a Twitter feed, and creating a Facebook page.

Boston officials and business leaders considered bids to host the 2004 or 2008 Olympics but decided not to submit a proposal in the end. The last time the Summer Games were held in the U.S. was in Atlanta in 1996.
