The fall of 2018 was the wettest meteorological rainfall on record according to data collected at the Blue Hills Observatory since the 1800s and 2014-2017 were the hottest years on record. This combined with more unpredictable and severe weather events such as the four Nor’Easters in March 2018, our community may be at greater risk to climate change.

The Town of Medfield and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) cordially invite you to participate in preparing and protecting our community though a Community Resilience Building Workshop. 

Climate Community Resilience Building Workshop 

When:  Thursday, January 31, 2019 (snow date: Tuesday, February 5, 2019)

Where: Medfield High School, Room 125

             88R South Street, Medfield, MA

Time:    9:30 AM to 3:00 PM

Lunch and refreshments will be served.

The Workshop will bring together community members like you to reduce risk and improve climate resilience.  It is a participatory event where your local knowledge and expertise will:

  • Evaluate strengths and vulnerabilities of residents, infrastructure, and natural resources.
  • Create an action plan to protect citizens, neighborhoods, and businesses.
  • Prioritize climate actions most important to you and Medfield.

Please RSVP for the Workshop by January 28, 2019 to Sarah Raposa sraposa@medfield.net 

I hope you can join me at this important workshop. 

Thank you for your consideration!
