Working Together for a Resilient Future

The Livable Nashua Plan is the City’s roadmap to a livable, resilient, and sustainable future for everyone. To meet the long-term goals of the City’s Master Plan, Livable Nashua will define the short-term actions that the City will take to meet the challenges of climate change head-on and create a thriving community.
