Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness Plan: Public Listening Session

On July 24, 2018, at 7:05 p.m. in the Board of Selectmen’s Meeting Room at the Shrewsbury Town Hall, 100 Maple Avenue, Shrewsbury’s Municipal Vulnerability Core Team will conduct a Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) Public Listening Session to discuss the Town’s MVP planning process and present the findings from an MVP planning workshop that was held on May 9 and 14, 2018, with Town officials, emergency response staff, and other stakeholders.


In 2017 the Town of Shrewsbury received a Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) Program Planning Grant from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs to help in the Town’s efforts to prepare for climate change and build resilience by identifying key climate-related hazards, vulnerabilities, and strengths and to prioritize next steps to address climate change impacts.  Through the MVP grant, with the assistance of the Town’s MVP-certified provider, the Horsley Witten Group, the Town has completed a vulnerability assessment workshop and developed recommended actions that the community of Shrewsbury can take to increase community resilience in the face of anticipated climate change impacts.  The listening session will provide an opportunity for interested residents and others to learn about the workshop and the recommendations that emerged, and to provide feedback.
