Master Plan Steering Committee Meetings & Public Participation
The MPSC meets on a variety of dates and times. The MPSC encourage the public to attend our meetings. The master planning process is intended to be a community-based effort. A key part of this effort will be developing a vision for Maynard with goals, objectives and policies that will guide the town into the future. The intent is to have broad public participation opportunities and community awareness of the process.
The completed master plan should provide a blueprint for the future while creating an essential tool for the municipal decision-making process that reflects community values and vision.
