Medford braces for climate change effects, from tree die-offs to hotter summers
Damian Mann, RV-Times, October 5th 2023
Medford has embarked on a strategy to adapt to less rainfall, hotter summers and more wildfires.
Medford City Council last Thursday told planning staff to continue to flesh out a plan that creates a framework to minimize anticipated climate change effects.
The Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience Plan, which would require a formal council vote in the future, will set the stage for attracting grants to help deal with summers that are expected to have up to 40 110-degree days by the end of the century.
