City of Nashua Initiatives

The City of Nashua worked with community stakeholders on Resilient Nashua throughout 2018 and 2019 to develop a comprehensive resilience initiative. In 2020, the City kicked off Imagine Nashua, the latest master planning process.

Resilient Nashua: Goals & Outputs

The Resilient Nashua Initiative was developed by the City and community stakeholders to encourage climate resilience throughout Nashua. The goals of the planning process were to: 1) identify acute shocks and chronic stressors impacting the City, 2) encourage diverse stakeholder dialogue through an inclusive environment, and 3) identify opportunities to improve the City's resilience. 

In addition to the community building that happened during the process, two final products were created: 

Nashua Hazard Mitigation Plan Update 2019
Resilience Dialogues Nashua Synthesis Report 2018

Greater Nashua  Public Health Region Data Dashboard

Public Health and Community Services

Public Health Dashboard

Public health ranges from access to health care and healthy food to the lifestyles of a community's residents. The Nashua Division of Public Health and Community Services (DPHCS) uses the Greater Nashua Public Health Region (GNPHR) Interactive Data Dashboard to present a range of public health indicators. The Dashboard provides a way for individuals and organizations to learn about the health status of their community and provides data from community level to national data. The Dashboard explores several sustainability-related topics: 

  • Air quality and pollution
  • Housing conditions and indoor health and safety
  • Disparities in socioeconomic status and health inequity
