Whether you are brand new to our amazing city, your family has been here for generations, or you are starting a new business here in Medford, we have designed this page to help you find what you need. Medford is a diverse, historic, and thriving community of just under 60,000 residents from all over the globe. Medford is home to more than 300 acres of city maintained open spaces of all sizes and types, vibrant small business districts, a strong and supportive network of non-profit and community-focused organizations, and so much more.
In 2020, I convened a diverse Welcoming Committee of residents and business to design resident and business resource guides, and work to support new residents and businesses to the City of Medford. If you’d like to be involved or learn more, you can contact our Director of Community Affairs, Lisa Colaianni, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-393-2405.
