Sidewalk construction is scheduled to begin the week of Monday October 29th, 2018. Construction activities include excavation, sidewalk paving and roadway paving. The Town of Maynard has contracted with Detour Construction LLC to complete the construction services.
Locations are as follows:
Once construction is started, no on-street parking will be allowed until all construction activities are completed.
As construction progress, homeowners on affected roadways may not be able to access their driveway with vehicles when crews are excavating and paving sidewalks directly adjacent to the property. Individual driveway work may take 2-3 days to complete at each location. Temporary walkways will be installed over the sidewalk while it cures to allow for pedestrian access to each property during construction. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Construction will start on Summer Street at Brooks Street the week of October 29th, and will continue through the above listed streets. Construction is scheduled to continue through the fall, weather permitting. Construction will continue in spring of 2019.

The Town Clerk’s office would like to remind you that registered voters will be able to vote before Election Day in Massachusetts. Early voting will begin on October 22, 2018 and continue through November 2nd, 2018 until 12:00 Noon.
Prior to the enactment of this law, the only way a registered voter was allowed to vote prior to Election Day was through absentee voting. Although absentee voting will still be available for registered voters who qualify, only those who will be absent from their city or town on Election Day, or have a disability that prevents them from going to the polls, or have a religious belief preventing the same, are legally allowed to vote by absentee ballot.

The Maynard Cultural Council announced its annual grants cycle last week, with $5,200 in total funding available for applicants who submit proposals by Oct. 15. Area residents who want to fund art, science, or humanities-focused projects will be considered.
“Maynard’s reputation as a cultural hub is growing, and we’re encouraging a wide range of projects to apply for this year’s funding,” said Council Chair Jeff Swanberg.
The funds will be divided among qualifying Massachusetts residents and organizations whose work seeks to enhance the culture of Maynard. Past projects include a music series; a children’s outdoor learning initiative; and a program to help high school students create handmade books on the subject of violence against women.
To apply by the Oct. 15 deadline, applicants should go to https://mcc.smartsimple.com/ex/ex_Apppage.jsp?token=HAwJSR8GbVheQxBa.
The Massachusetts Cultural Council awards the annual grants to local cultural councils, who disperse the money to projects of their choosing. Last year was a record year in Maynard, with 53 total applicants and 13 projects funded. The Council aims to continue the town’s strong arts tradition and bolster a broad array of culture in Maynard.
“Our job is to help talented residents promote Maynard’s diverse culture,” said Council member Brad Matthews. “So, what is Maynard’s culture to you?”
