Dear Member of the Otis Community –


Have you noticed that our weather patterns are changing and becoming more unstable? The Town of Otis is looking for your input to help us understand these changes so that we as a community are prepared to meet this challenge.


We invite you to attend three workshops to help us identify the risks that natural hazards such as flooding, drought, fire and severe weather pose to Otis residents and businesses. You are being invited because of your knowledge of the Town and your commitment to making Otis a better place to live.  Your involvement will include attending three online events this autumn. We ask that you join us in three interactive online workshops held via Zoom at 6 pm on these dates:

  • Monday, September 20th
  • Monday, September 27th
  • Wednesday, October 6th

Your participation will help prioritize actions the Town can take in the short- and long-term to become a more resilient community. A brief explanation of hazard mitigation and climate change resiliency can be found on the attached invitation.  You can also visit Resilient Otis at https://arcg.is/18LKD9 . This website will provide you with an easy-to-understand background in natural hazards and climate change.


We hope you are able to participate in this important community effort. Please RSVP to the calendar invite to follow in a separate email by August 31st. If you have any questions, please feel free to email our facilitator Lauren Gaherty at lauren@berkshireplanning.org. Thank you for your consideration of our invitation.
