Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) & Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP)

The Town of Oxford is moving forward with a joint effort to update its Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) and complete our first Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) Plan. An updated Hazard Mitigation Plan will help the Town assess community risk from natural hazards and plan actions to reduce future hazard risk.

To view the most current draft of the report please see the related documents.

The MVP planning program is a state-funded effort that will help Oxford identify climate change impacts, assess local vulnerabilities, and develop a climate change adaptation action plan. Once we complete the HMP and MVP planning processes, we will be eligible for additional state and federal grant programs that fund projects to reduce disaster risk and build resilience to climate change.

The Central Massachusetts Regional Planning Commission (CMRPC) is assisting the Town of Oxford with both of these planning projects.

For more information, please contact Kevin Duffy (Oxford Department Public Works Director), or Tony Sousa (Oxford Assistant Town Manager).
