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 to fund 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 City to identify the highest priority challenges and the most feasible solutions to put Gloucester on track to meet long-term energy, climate and resiliency goals.

The final draft CARP plan will be posted for public comment in late July. Please stay tuned by following Innovate Gloucester's @InnovateGlosta Instagram, @InnovateGlosta Twitter, and Innovate Gloucester Facebook pages.
