PZRR Season FIVE – Dec 4th, 4pm on WAVM

Who said planning and zoning has to be bureaucratic, monochromatic, asthmatic, systematic, autocratic or dull? Well it isn’t…at least for one hour!

Join Maynard Town Planner Bill Nemser as he fills you in on all the latest planning related news, discusses place-making trends in the Metrowest Region and presents an assortment of exciting guests all the while weaving it all into an eclectic musical tapestry of hits, misses and classics from all genres! And best of all, the infamous “Think You Know Maynard?” trivia game!

The Planning Zoning Rock and Rolling Radio Hour was awarded the 2016 Media Award by the Massachusetts Chapter of the American Planning Association for excellence in comprehensive coverage of a planning or development issue.

Season Five of “Planning, Zoning, Rock and Rolling” continues Tuesday December 4, 2018 at 4PM! Listen live on WAVM 97.1 or online at http://wavm.org/listen-live/

Protecting water resources is on everybody’s mind but a hard fact is that municipal storm drain systems are a major source of pollutants to waters of the Commonwealth. Over 200 Massachusetts towns discharge stormwater under U.S. EPA’s NPDES Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems permit (the MS4 Permit). This 5-year permit, jointly issued by EPA and MassDEP, requires towns to meet minimum control measures.

How is Maynard preparing to meet that challenge? Join us as we explore this crucial issue with Town Consultant Lori Kennedy of VHB and Maynard Conservation Agent Katie Young. They will explain what Maynard is doing and how it will affect us all.

Another “do not miss” episode for anyone interested in Maynard’s cultural, economic and community development!
