The Cities of Beverly and Salem have officially kicked off their first phase of Resilient Together, their collective plan to address climate change.
The Climate Action and Resilience Plan will aim to reduce the cities’ contribution to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and improve resiliency in seven areas:
- Buildings and development
- Natural resources
- Public health and safety
- Solid waste
The Cities strive to exceed Massachusetts’ commitment to carbon neutrality by 2050.
Initial Phase Survey
In the plan’s initial phase, Beverly and Salem are inviting residents and business owners to participate in an online survey where they can share their perceptions, concerns, and priorities as they relate to the environment and community resiliency. The online survey takes approximately five minutes to complete and will be active through October.
It is also offered in Spanish and Portuguese online, as well as a print-out version in Albanian.
Resilient Together Website
Beverly and Salem’s newly launched website also provides an overview of the plan timeline, focus areas, core principles, and ways to engage. The Cities will continuously update the website to keep the community informed on their progress.
