About the Committee
White’s Pond Citizen’s Study Committee (WPCSC) is a citizen comprised ad hoc body appointed by the Maynard Board of Selectmen. Initially set at five (5) voting members, it has been expanded to 7 members.
The committee will be tasked with facilitating the success of the study being conducted by the engineering firm of Woodard and Curran. This will include meeting with, advising and conveying public input from various constituencies to the firm, the Board of Selectmen and the Town Administrator when relative and appropriate.
The WPCSC will be tasked to deliver a narrative or written report or recommendation to the Board of Selectmen upon completion of the engineering study. A final report was originally scheduled for the 2011 Annual Town Meeting, but due to delays in starting the study it is now expected in the September 2011 timeframe with an interim report to be presented at Annual Town Meeting.
