Somerville has a number of commissions, which are mechanisms for cities to advise on important issues. One such committee is the Commission on Energy and Climate Change, which holds monthly meetings.
Today, I went to a monthly commission meeting. Packed agenda going over the Somerville Climate Forward plan, the air source heat pump initiative, pending state regulation–and a number of other things I’ve writing about. Full house, too. One commissioner told me the meetingsuse story be empty, but now they run out of space regularly.
