The City of Medford and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) will host the first in a series of workshops on reducing energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in Medford on Wednesday, May 2 and Thursday, May 3 in Medford City Hall.
To increase public input in the development of the action plan, Medford will hold two Community Vision Workshops in May. The workshops will take place on Wednesday, May 2 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chambers, and on Thursday, May 3 from 10 a.m. to Noon in the same location.
Both workshops are open to the public; all residents, local business owners, students, and community members are encouraged to attend.
The workshops will include an introduction to the Local Energy Action Program, an overview of Medford’s past energy accomplishments, and will feature brainstorming sessions focused on energy opportunities and interests in Medford.
The information gathered from the workshops will help inform the energy reduction goals and strategies identified in the energy action plan. Once the plan is drafted, the public will have an opportunity to comment on it before the city and local stakeholders begin project implementation.
