In 2017, the Town received a grant from the Massachusetts Office of Disabilities to update its ADA Transition Plan. The rewrite has been drafted and it includes new provisions for enable citizens to ask for accommodations, appoints an employee as a point of contact, and outlines new physical and electronic access improvements to be implemented in the coming years.
Before submitting the plan to the Commonwealth for acceptance, public input is required. In addition, a committee must be re-established which will inform capital planning, make budget recommendations, and assist citizens and the town in determining and establishing proper accommodations in the future. The current committee is dormant.

The Board of Health reminds everyone that composting is a great way to recycle our organic “waste” into a beneficial soil amendment for our yards and gardens. Composting at home can also help reduce methane production at landfills. Using the compost in our landscapes helps store carbon in the soil instead of releasing it to the atmosphere. Compost creates healthy soil, reducing or eliminating the need for fertilizers, pesticides and irrigation. We can reduce our trash by 50 percent or more by composting.
It’s easy to make compost, and the Town of Maynard makes it even easier by offering rodent- resistant home composting bins for $35.00, over 50% off the retail price. To obtain a discounted compost bin, please contact or visit the Board of Health office.
