Senior Center Committee

The Maynard “Senior Center Committee” is as an advisory body to the Select Board who will provide the Select Board with recommendations for a suitable Senior Center to be operated under the authority of the Maynard Council on Aging, and its duly appointed director and board. 

This preceding charge was approved by the Maynard Select Board on December 19, 2023.

The Select Board is seeking recommendations in planning to support the town’s appointed Council on Aging (COA) to provide the town of Maynard with programs and services that are meant to meet the needs and thriving, healthy lifestyles of the community’s senior population.

The Select Board may accept recommendations that would lead to the lease, construction, and or any other reasonable means to establish a suitable Senior Center.

Whether the solution is short term, long term or permanent, the only town body authorized to negotiate or enter into any leases, purchasers, or other agreements shall be the Select board, or through its authority the Town Administrator and/or his office.

The Senior Center Committee shall expect to advocate at Town Meeting to execute those recommendations accepted by the Select Board for the future Senior Center.

The Senior Center Committee shall expect to advise the Town Administrator and Select Board on contracts, leasing agreements, vendor relationships, construction and design plans, change orders, and any other matters pertinent to the execution of the Select Board’s direction.

The Senior Center Committee shall report regularly to the Select Board on its progress towards developing recommendations, preparations for Town Meeting, and execution of approved plans thereafter.

The members of the Senior Center Committee shall serve terms of three-years, unless ended sooner through resignation or rescinded appointment by the Select Board or otherwise incapable of completing the term.
