On Thursday, November 8th at 7:00 pm in the Tisbury Senior Center, 34 Pine Tree Rd., the Town of Tisbury will hold a public “listening session” to both present and hear comments on the results of the recently completed Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) Workshop. This full-day workshop was held on Wednesday, October 17th, 2018 with the goal of identifying the hazards facing Tisbury that may be exacerbated by climate change and to prioritize actions the town can take to prepare for the identified hazards. This workshop was planned and facilitated by a core team of local officials, town residents, and the Horsley Witten Group, and was funded by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs through an MVP Planning Grant, issued to the Town of Tisbury during the fiscal year of July 2017 through June 2018.
One of the results of the project is MVP Certification, which allows certified communities access to additional state grants for projects related to climate change resiliency. At the November 8th Public Listening Session, the town will present the results of the workshop and ask for public comment and questions.
