Medford Wins National Green Community Honor.
Medford joined a small number of cities to receive the National Green Community honor announced at the Nov 21st city council meeting. this was awarded with the news that the community had exceeded its original enrollment goals set in its Pacific Power Blue Sky renewable energy challenge.
The original goal was to increase the number of homes and businesses using the Pacific Power model by 25% between April and December 2013. And with one month to go, the increase has been measured at about 30%.
Medford is one of 50 communities to achieve this recognition based on the level of the city, business and resident support for the plan.
