On December 11, 2019 over 60 Town of Bedford staff, committee members, and community
stakeholders attended a Community Resiliency Building (CRB) Workshop to evaluate the climate
hazards facing the Town, discuss municipal strengths and vulnerabilities, and identify
opportunities to improve the Town’s overall resiliency. The Town of Bedford now invites the
general public to attend a March 4th community meeting to learn about these local climate-related
hazards, and to provide input on the actions developed in response. The results of this meeting will
be incorporated into the Town’s Hazard Mitigation Plan update, which is anticipated to be issued
for further public review in April.
The CRB process is made possible by a grant from the Executive Office of Energy and
Environmental Affairs, which leverages local knowledge to guide future climate resiliency
planning and projects. Once the Town completes the CRB process, it will become designated as a
Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness community. This designation will allow the Town to apply
for future grant funding to implement the identified action items.
