The Town of Barnstable is hosting a community planning event to explore how we are impacted by natural hazards and to develop a comprehensive strategy to reduce potential risks, improve our ability to recover quickly after major hazard events, and improve our overall resilience.

Through the Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness process, participants will explore current and future vulnerabilities to our infrastructure, community, and environment resulting from natural hazards and changing climate conditions and develop and prioritize municipal and community response actions. 

During the MVP workshop, participants will work with local and regional leaders to:

  • Characterize the hazards facing the community
  • Identify community vulnerabilities and risks
  • Identify and prioritize potential community actions
  • Recommend overall priority actions for the community

This workshop is a product of the Town of Barnstable’s participation in the Commonwealth’s Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) program. This program provides support for towns in Massachusetts to plan for and implement projects that mitigate the impacts of climate change and natural hazards. Communities that complete the MVP program become certified as an "MVP community" and are eligible for State grant funding and other opportunities.
