City of Revere Designated as a Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness Community

October 1, 2019

Mayor Brian M. Arrigo announced this week that the City of Revere has received designation as an Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) Community by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for its completion of the Community Resiliency Building planning process. As a MVP Community, the City is now eligible to apply for MVP Action Grants, and positions itself to receive increased state funding opportunities to pursue strategies to combat climate change.

“As a coastal community, it is imperative we remain proactive with our state and regional partners to help make our community more resilient. A top priority for me is making sure we’re doing what we can to protect our residents and the neighborhoods we know are most vulnerable to flooding” said Mayor Brian Arrigo. “Thanks to the support of the Baker Administration and Secretary Theoharides, we can now pursue and implement resiliency measures to ensure we are prepared for the inevitable impacts of climate change.”

Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Kathleen Theoharides acknowledged the City’s MVP designation, “I want to commend your community’s dedication to climate change resiliency and I look forward to watching as the City of Revere continues its efforts to plan and implement priority climate adaptation strategies.”

The first MVP Action Grant the City is pursuing  is to conduct a coastal resilience feasibility study for the Point of Pines and Riverside area to investigate strategies to make this neighborhood more resilient to climate change.  A community meeting will be held at the Point of Pines Yacht Club Thursday, September 26, at 6:00 p.m. to gather residents’ feedback to incorporate into the grant application.
