All Interested Parties,

 

Given previous and ongoing events like Tropical Storm Irene and the drought of 2020, we now find ourselves in a new era of more unpredictable and severe weather that can potentially cause more damage to our community.

 

To be as proactive as we can in preparing and protecting our town, we would like to personally invite you to join the Otis Hazard Mitigation and Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness committee in attending our first virtual public listening session on December 9th, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. The meeting can be accessed using the link below:

The Town of Otis is partnering with the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission to offer this informational session which will bring together community members like you to learn more about the Town’s participation in hazard mitigation and climate adaptation planning and to comprehensively identify and prioritize steps to reduce risk and improve resilience across the town. This listening session will help clarify and advance comprehensive community resilience planning and hazard mitigation efforts.

 

The Listening Session Objectives are as follows:

 

  • Understand connections between natural hazards and local planning/mitigation efforts.
  • Evaluate strengths and vulnerabilities of residents, infrastructure, and natural resources.
  • Begin the process of developing resilient actions for the municipality, local organizations, institutions businesses, private citizens, neighborhoods, and community groups.

 

I hope you and your local friends and family can join us at this listening session. Thank you for your participation!

 

Sincerely,

 

Town of Otis
