The Municipal Vulnerabilities Preparedness (MVP) Program is a state program designed to provide support for cities and towns in Massachusetts to begin the process of planning for climate change resiliency and implementing priority projects. Involving the municipalities of Massachusetts to address natural hazards being amplified by climate change allows more targeted solutions to these problems.
This program is designed to encourage discussion in order to help municipalities identify the vulnerabilities, strengths, and opportunities to take action to reduce risk and build resilience in their communities.
The Town of North Attleborough completed two Community Resilience Building (CRB) Workshops in the summer of 2019. The goal of these workshops was to further investigate the Town's prior planning efforts and resiliency measures as well as to develop a list of strengths, as well as priority actions to focus on in the immediate future. The attached Report describes the process used for the workshops and a final Risk Matrix that was developed through the collaborative workshop process. This Matrix describes the Town's strengths and weaknesses, prioritizes community action items, and discusses future efforts for planning and projects.
The Town of North Attleborough was designated an MVP Community on September 9, 2019.
