Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness Listening Session

The Town of Rowley has received a planning assistance grant from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, through the Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) Grant Program.   The MVP program provides support for cities and towns in Massachusetts to begin the process of planning for climate change resiliency and implementing priority projects.

The state awards communities with funding to complete vulnerability assessments and develop action-oriented resiliency plans. Communities who complete the MVP program become certified as an MVP community and are eligible for MVP Action grant funding and other opportunities.  Rowley has partnered with The Merrimack Valley Planning Commission to facilitate this project and provide the latest, most critical research and data that will help inform the decision-making process.

In order to become designated as a MVP Community, key stakeholders have participated in several Community Resilience Building workshops.  This process resulted in the development of a climate change vulnerability assessment.

The public is invited to participate in a listening session to learn more about this program and the findings from the workshops.  Instructions on how to attend this virtual meeting are detailed below.
