Wellesley is developing a Hazard Mitigation Plan to better prepare for natural hazards and climate change impacts.
Public participation is essential to developing this plan. Residents are invited to a virtual public meeting on Thursday, February 16 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. to hear updates on the plan, asks questions, and give additional input.
The meeting will take place via Zoom. Please register in advance to attend.
Examples of natural hazards include high winds and extreme temperatures like those we recently experienced! Meeting participants will have the opportunity to contribute ideas for making the Town more resilient.
The plan is being developed by a Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee comprised of Town leaders and local stakeholders, along with consultants from the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA).
Approval and adoption of this plan will allow the Town to apply for pre- and post-disaster hazard mitigation grant funds.
