The City of Medford has been committed to environmental preservation, clean energy, and green initiatives for over two decades. In 2002, Mayor Michael McGlynn created the Office of Energy and Environment, and in 2010, the Energy and Environment Committee was formed to support the City’s goals of energy independence and environmental stewardship.
The Go Green Medford website was launched in 2013 as a way to engage with residents on environmental issues and raise awareness on ongoing and completed green programs, initiatives, and events happening in Medford.
Many of the current projects on this site are led by the Office of Planning, Development, and Sustainability which combined the Offices of Community Development & Energy and Environment in early 2021. This merger is designed to bring the City’s expertise in sustainability and climate change to all planning, development, and housing work projects. It is the goal of the office to ensure a sustainable and thriving Medford for all.
