Senior Citizen Parking Sticker
The Town of Maynard has a Senior Parking Sticker program that allows residents who are 62 years old or older to park at any metered space free of charge for up to 2 hours.
Residents interested in the program should bring their license and registration to the Maynard Police Station (197 Main St.) to be issued a sticker.
Senior Citizen Emergency Database Program
The Town of Maynard Public Safety Communications Department (Police and Fire Dispatch) has initiated a new program to assist seniors living in the Town of Maynard. Having seniors in our community that do not have family or friends checking up on them regularly has led the public safety department to develop a “Senior Citizen Emergency Database Program”.
This program allows the public safety communications department to document in a computer database the names of senior citizens, where they reside, and important contact information. In addition, information concerning current medications and potential special needs during an unusual inclement weather event or natural disaster will be on file.
Visit the Maynard Police Department website to learn more about (and sign up for) this program.
