Medford has recently published its climate change vulnerability assessment (read here: gogreenmedford.org/climate/), which identifies the physical, social, and economic impacts of climate change on our city. The next steps for our community are to develop a vision and make an adaptation and mitigation plan. We invite you to be a part of that process!
We are collecting suggestions for 1) a vision statement that describes a climate-resilient Medford and 2) focus areas, or categories, that will organize the planning process for the mitigation and adaptation plan. These focus areas should comprehensively capture the physical and social characteristics of Medford.
We hope that with your help, we can create a vision that specifically captures the values and vitality of Medford.
