Minimum Property Maintenance By-law Presentation – Sep 5th

A Public Meeting to Present Minimum Property Maintenance By-law to be considered at the October 28th Special Fall Town Meeting will be held on September 5th.

Maynard is planning its first “Minimum Property Maintenance” By-law for all commercial and industrial properties.  Come for a presentation of the new By-law and offer your comments at a public meeting hosted by the Economic Development Committee on Thursday September 5th, at 6:30 PM in Town Hall.

The effort is part of a multi-year plan largely designed by the Economic Development Committee (EDC) to gradually improve the aesthetics of downtown. Town Planner Bill Nemser pointed out that the initiative started out in 2015 with the popular “Business Environment Enhancement Program”, or BEEP grant.  “The Town has offered matching grants for a multitude of exterior improvements for our local business community.  The idea was to help our businesses with improvements that would boost the curb appeal”, said Nemser.  He noted that there are still BEEP funds available that can be applied for through Town Hall’s Office of Municipal Services.

“The proposed by-law was largely initiated by input from residents and businesses contacted through outreach, surveys and direct interaction with Town Hall. The net effect should improve the overall economic vitality of our community” continued Nemser.

The September 5th public meeting is to allow the community to know about the proposed by-law and how it will work. “The EDC has taken the gathering of input from a wide-range of sources very seriously and the resulting draft By-law reflects this”, said EDC Chair Jack MacKeen. “There has been a lot of effort and research invested in the creation of this by-law.  The EDC wants to ensure that Maynard is -and looks like- a wise investment for the future”, continued MacKeen.

The meeting is open to all and the public is encouraged to attend.
