Final Draft of the New Shoreham Community Resilience Building Summary of Findings - 11/18/21


New
Shoreham was selected for the 2021 round of the Rhode Island Infrastructure
Bank’s Municipal Resiliency Program.

Detailed
information about the program can be found at:
https://www.riib.org/mrp.

 

The Municipal Resilience Program
(MRP) provides direct support to cities and towns to complete a
municipal-driven process that will bring together climate change information
and local knowledge to identify top hazards, current challenges, and community
strengths. This process will identify priority projects and strategies to
improve the municipality’s resilience to all natural and climate-related
hazards using a flexible, tested approach called Community Resilience Building
(CRB).

 

Upon successful completion of the
CRB process, municipalities will be designated as a “Resilient Rhody
Municipality” which enables municipalities to apply for dedicated action grants
to implement identified projects.

 

A key component
of the MRP Program is the Community Resiliency Building Workshop which was held
virtually in September of 2021. 

 

A Summary
of Findings Report was produced following the Workshop.
