Somerville Sustainability Office open hours

Getting involved in city affairs seems like a quintessential civic act. Today, I dropped in on the City of Somerville Office of Suatainability and Environment (OSE) office hours, third Thursday of every month, in case you’re wondering. I was mostly curious about the city’s Commission on Energy Use an Climate Change, a citizen advisory council that works with the OSE. And I was also interested in chatting with the team, whom I find really engaging and open to the public. Special bonus: they clued me into plans for an incentive program for air-source heat pump retrofits. Could be a good way to make my heat more efficient.
