In July 2019, Concord received $100,095 in grant funds from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts through the Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) Program to develop a Climate Action and Resilience Plan. This plan is the next step in charting a course toward achieving Concord's climate goals. It will build upon the vulnerability assessment completed during the MVP planning grant process, the community-wide GHG inventory, existing town plans and initiatives, and many other resources and research to outline key priority actions for climate action.

Sustainability and resilience work best in tandem and when everyone is involved.

The Town has contracted with Kim Lundgren Associates (KLA) to help to develop the plan. The Climate Action Advisory Board will take a leadership role in advising the plan development, kicking off with KLA at their September 18, 2019 meeting. The climate action and resilience plan is scheduled to be completed in June 2020.

We welcome and encourage input from the community throughout the process. Stay tuned for dates for public forums, meetings, and events. Submit ideas through the form below at any time. For more information about the plan elements, principles, and timelines, take a look at this one-page overview.
