Hometown Heroes Program Accepting Applications

Through the efforts of the Hometown Heroes Committee, the Town of Maynard launched a program in 2019 called “Hometown Heroes.” The objective of the Hometown Heroes is to create banners that will be hung in Maynard honoring Maynard Veterans and Active-Duty military men and women.

The Hometown Heroes banner program has started Phase 2 and is accepting applications for banners. Any Maynard-based Veteran, whether native or new resident, is welcome to be part of the Hometown Heroes Program.   Please click here to visit the Phase 2 Application page to learn more about the program and obtain an application form.

The cut-off date for ordering Hometown Heroes banner for Phase II will end as of July 1st, 2022. We want to place the order for all the banners we’ve received in soon after July 1st so they can be displayed for at least part of this year – they will be up until after Veterans Day. They will go up again next May. If you have any questions, please email  The order forms are online as well at the Town Hall and Library.  We will begin to take orders again at the end of this year for the next batch.

Annual Town Meeting – Saturday, June 11 at 9am

The Maynard Select Board endorsed the proposal by Town Moderator Dick Downey to move the date, time and location of the Annual Town Meeting to Saturday, June 11, 2022 at 9:00am at the Fowler Middle School parking lot.

Due to the recent increase in COVID cases in Middlesex County and Maynard, the Maynard Board Of Health has recommended another outdoor Town Meeting.  As a result, the Town Moderator made the decision to postpone the May 16th Annual Town Meeting.

Green Meadow School Building Project Selects Design Alternative

At the May 24th Green Meadow Elementary School Building Committee meeting, the Building Committee voted to select Design Alternative #7 as the preferred design alternative out of the seven studied.

As the design process continues there will naturally be slight modifications to the building and site design.  But big-picture, Design Alternative #7 is the design scheme the Green Meadow Elementary School Building Committee will be moving along with, and they’re excited to keep the community informed and continue to welcome community input as the design process continues.

For more information please visit the Green Meadow School Building Project page.
