Environmental Sustainability and Community Resilience

A task force has been convened to explore pathways for a more sustainable and resilient Attleboro.  

Background

The volunteer task force is currently drafting a plan to help the City begin addressing the negative impacts of climate change and other environmental stressors.  The task force is reaching out to a number of government and civic groups for feedback and input.  In addition, the task force is encouraging input from the Attleboro community as a whole through this website, city Alerts, and other media.  The task force plans to hold a public forum in the fall 2022 to review the plan and other suggestions.

Mission

To create a long range, strategic, and ambitious Environmental Master Plan (EMP) that will provide a blueprint for sustainable and resilient growth and is intended to be a comprehensive compilation of actionable recommendations based on six core pillars of focus to guide current and future city governing bodies.
