Maynard Business Guide

The Town of Maynard has created this Business Guide to help navigate municipal procedures – including permitting, licensing and zoning – in a simple, straight-forward format. It is part of a larger effort to simplify municipal processes and maintain a customer friendly environment within Town Hall.

The guide provides contact information and will help commercial customers, prospective businesses, and residents save time and money when interacting with Town Hall. Most information can also be found on the Town website. Additionally, Maynard’s Office of Municipal Services staff is available to answer any questions you may have and help you get started.

We understand the permitting process can appear cumbersome, but in addition to ensuring both regulatory compliance and the health and safety of the public, local permitting creates a healthy business environment. If you succeed, Maynard succeeds and the Town wants to do everything it can to ensure your business is a success!
