Resilient Nashua Initiative
The City of Nashua will be working with community stakeholders throughout 2018 and 2019 to develop a comprehensive resilience initiative. The Resilient Nashua Initiative’s main purpose is to identify acute shocks and chronic stressors impacting the City of Nashua, now and in the future, and collaboratively find solutions to address these complex issues. Our first task will be to update the City’s Hazard Mitigation Plan as well as develop a Resilience Strategy Plan to improve overall resilience for the community as a whole. Throughout 2018 and 2019 the City will host a variety of opportunities, such as workshops, for stakeholders and the public to contribute to the Resilient Nashua Initiative. We encourage everyone in our community to take part.

We’re excited to announce the release of the Resilient Nashua Initiative coUrbanize website! This is the same tool the City used for the Downtown Riverfront Development Plan (courb.co/nashua). The new Resilient Nashua coUrbanize can be accessed here: https://courb.co/resilient
If you live, work, or visit Nashua, please visit the website and add a couple of points to the map based on the first question: “Where and what type of hazard events have you observed in Nashua?”
You can answer “Natural Hazards”, “Accidental Hazards”, or Human-Caused Hazards” and provide further information in the associated text box. Over the course of the next few months, we’ll be changing the questions regularly to help bring additional community input into our plan.
