For inquiries about affordable housing at “The Vue” (the rental multi-family housing at Maynard Crossing aka 129 Parker Street), the developer is now maintaining a database of interested households. These households will be notified when marketing begins and will receive an application and information packet. Ultimately there will be a lottery for the final awarding of the affordable units.
Please direct interested households to email the developer’s housing agent at email@example.com . In the email they should provide their full name, contact information, and make clear they are interested in the Maynard development.
For additional information, please contact Bill Nemser (Maynard Town Planner) at 978-897-1302 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Roadway construction began the week of October 15, 2018. Construction activities include excavation, sewer pipe installation, manhole repair and roadway paving. The Town of Maynard has contracted with N. Granese & Sons, Inc to complete the roadway and sewer construction services.
UPDATE 17-Jan-2019: Please be advised, the 129 Parker Street Downstream Sewer Project is progressing and construction will move onto Powder Mill Road/Route 62 beginning Monday 01/28/2019. We will be replacing large sections of water and sewer main that are located at the centerline of the roadway. We will work as quickly as possible through this area, but due to the location of the pipe in the roadway, both lanes of traffic will be closed during active construction. Powder Mill Road/Route 62 between Waltham Street and the Maynard Elks Lodge will be closed to thru traffic from 7:00AM-3:00PM Monday – Friday during construction. Residents and patrons of local businesses will be able to access their properties. Public Works is working together with the Police Department to post detour signs and informational message boards ahead of the construction on Powder Mill Road/Route 62. The Maynard Police Department will be detouring traffic around the construction area (see the recommended detour route options below.) The School Department has been notified and is working with Dee Bus services on school bus route modifications. We anticipate the construction on Powder Mill Road/Route 62 to take seven weeks, weather dependent.

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!
