Climate Action and Resilience Plan (CARP)

In September of 2021, the City of Gloucester was awarded $69,890 through the Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) Action Grant Program. Funding will go towards the creation of a Community Action and Resilience Plan (CARP), in collaboration with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) and the City's Clean Energy Commission (CEC). The plan will help the community to identify the highest priority challenges and the most feasible solutions to put Gloucester on trach to meet long-term energy, climate and resiliency goals.

Meet Our Community Engagement Interns

As part of the MVP Action Grant, the City received funding to hire two local young people as CARP Community Engagement Interns. You might see them out-and-about promoting engagement with the CARP plan. They will also be working in the background, helping generate ideas, make connections, and reach stakeholders who don't traditionally engage in the City's planning efforts. 

Attend Clean Energy Commission Meetings

For the duration of CARP planning process the CEC will be providing oversight and guidance to the planning team. Find out about upcoming public meetings of the CEC on the City's website under Public Notices. You can also find recordings of past public meetings here.


Applicable comments and materials submitted to the CARP planning team by the public will be available here throughout the planning process.
