Creating the Plan

Engaging Staff and the Community

24 city staff members representing a variety of departments formed a Livable Nashua Advisory Group.

27 High School students from Nashua High School North and South participated in focus groups where they expressed their climate hopes and fears.

47 members of the Latino community representing a wide variety of national origins participated in a focus group through Centro Latino.

19 members of the Conservation Commission and Environment & Energy Committee contributed their ideas and expertise to the development of the plan.

280 community members participated in Livable Nashua activities at community events like the Community Resource Fair, Holiday Stroll, and more.
