Meeting 1 Flyer_Final

Join the Town of Canton for an interactive virtual public meeting to discuss its flood mitigation efforts as part of the Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) grant program on Tuesday, March 23 from 7 to 8 p.m. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts developed the MVP Action Grant program to provide financial resources for municipalities, including Canton, to prepare for the challenges associated with climate change. Canton faces flooding challenges during heavy rainfall events and is applying its MVP grant to identify areas with high flood risk and develop a prioritized action plan to mitigate these risks using nature-based solutions.
