Medford Mayor Michael McGlynn will deliver an official State of the City address for the first time since 2001.
McGlynn speaks annually at a Medford Chamber of Commerce event in November dubbed the "State of the City," but that is open to members of the chamber only. McGlynn will deliver a public address inside City Council chambers at City Hall at 6 p.m. on March 6.
McGlynn said he decided to hold a State of the City because of the number of projects undertaken in 2012. About $25 million in capital improvement projects were approved by the city last year, and several more remain on the table for 2013, including relocation of the public works yard, discussion of a parking garage in Medford Square, and possible renovations of the Brooks Estate Land Trust, he said.
"A tremendous amount has happened in the last year -- even the last couple of months," he said. "I want to lay everything out to the public so everyone can see it."
