On Wednesday, April 24th at 4:30 pm the Town of Brewster will hold a public listening session at the Brewster Ladies Library, 1822 Main Street, to present the results of the recently completed Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) Workshop. This workshop was held on Thursday, March 28th with the goal of identifying the hazards facing Brewster that may be exacerbated by climate change and to prioritize actions the town can take to prepare for the identified hazards. This workshop was planned and facilitated by a core team of representatives from Town Departments and the Horsley Witten Group. Members of the public were invited to participate. The workshop was funded through an MVP Planning Grant issued to the town by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.
One of the results of the project is MVP Certification, which allows certified communities access to additional state grants for projects related to climate change resiliency. At the April 24th Public Listening Session, the town will present the results of the workshop and ask for public comment and questions. The final plan will be posted on the town website at www.brewster-ma.gov.
