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.
All residents are invited to attend a virtual public meeting on Wednesday, November 16 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. to ask questions and give input as the Town develops this plan.
The meeting will take place via Zoom. Please register in advance to attend.
Meeting participants will have an opportunity to contribute ideas for making the Town more resilient to natural hazards like flooding, snowstorms, high winds and extreme temperatures.
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.
