upcoming events & Activities

Learn what's coming in the new Stretch Code

The Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER) is hosting a talk to give people an overview of what will be included in the new building codes.  This is important, since most of Chelmsford’s emissions come from buildings, so this will have a big impact on our mission to achieve net zero.
