Rochester’s Municipal Vulnerability Workshops

March 15 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Given previous and ongoing storm events, we now find ourselves in an era of more unpredictable and severe weather that can potentially cause more damage to Rochester’s town resources and infrastructure.

In order to be as proactive as we can in preparing and protecting our community, the Town of Rochester invites you to join us at two free, half-day Municipal Vulnerability Workshops to be held on March 15and March 22from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm at the First Congregational Church Fellowship Hall in Rochester. Light breakfast and lunch will be provided. Representatives of Rochester town departments, as well as local businesses, organizations, and residents are invited to participate in the workshops. Space is limited, so please contact Laurell J. Farinon, Environmental Planner/Conservation Agent at 508-763-5421 ext. 206, or lfarinon@townofrochester.com by Monday, March 11, 2019 to confirm attendance.

The Workshops Objectives are as follows:

  • Identify Rochester’s top natural and climate related hazards
  • Identify strengths and vulnerabilities of Rochester’s residents, infrastructure, and natural assets
  • Develop and prioritize resilient actions for the municipality, businesses, local organizations, neighborhoods, and private residents
  • Identify immediate opportunities and actions to take to reduce the impact of hazards in the Town of Rochester

Please join us to help identify and prioritize steps to reduce risk and help clarify and advance community planning and hazard mitigation efforts in the Town of Rochester. The workshops will be facilitated by the Southeastern Regional Planning and Economic Development District (SRPEDD), and the end result will be a Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) report prepared for the Town of Rochester.
