SOUTH THOMASTON — “As we all look to the future with one eye and to where we are today with the other, it is clear that the process of preparing for the time ahead is an extremely important step to take for our community,” said a news release.
On Saturday, Dec. 10, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., members from the all volunteer “Community Resilience Project” committee will be on hand at the Gilford Butler Community Center in South Thomaston to talk with visitors about this important project.
This is an entirely community based project that relies on the input from all its citizens to identify the most important needs we will face in years to come, said the group, in a news release.
“This ‘one-on-one’ informal informational opportunity is a chance for us to hear each resident's ideas as we prepare data for a full meeting in January,” said the release.
Administered by the Governor's Office of Policy Innovation and the Future, participation in the Community Resilience Partnership is open to all municipalities, federally recognized tribes, and unorganized territories in Maine. The benefits of joining the Partnership include access to funding opportunities, help with project development and grant writing, training on important topics, and peer-to-peer learning events. Recommended by Maine's four-year climate action plan, Maine Won't Wait, the Partnership offers communities support for both climate mitigation and adaptation activities.
