This is a notice to the public that the Town is holding a Public Comment Meeting on Thursday, January 19, 2023, at 6:30 PM. This public meeting is to discuss the proposed Municipal Vulnerability Plan (MVP), which the Town has been working on with Commonwealth Municipal Consulting, LLC, since last spring. A copy of the plan can be reviewed at Town Hall.
The Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness grant program (MVP) 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. The report includes an update to our Hazard Mitigation Plan.
If you cannot attend the meeting but have questions regarding the MVP/HMP plan, please submit your questions in writing to Doreen.firstname.lastname@example.org before 3:00 PM, January 17, 2023.
The Meeting will be held at Town Hall, 161 Main Road, Montgomery, MA 01085.
Additional questions can be directed to the Municipal Office at (413) 862-3386.
