PZRR Season FIVE -March 19, 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 March 19th  at 4PM! Listen live on WAVM 97.1 or online at http://wavm.org/listen-live/

PZRR is talkin’ economics, thinking local and Maynard’s business environment!

Julie Love Gagnen, President of the Maynard Business Alliance, is the guest. This very special episode will of course, focus on Maynard’s business community but also will go quite a bit further! Tune in for an in-depth conversation about everything business going on in Maynard and ranging from business education classes to proposed town by-laws to how to apply for a grant from the Town’s Business Environment Enhancement Program!

Another “do not miss” episode for anyone interested in Maynard’s dynamic efforts at sustainable community planning, economic development and environmental stewardship!
