To All Citizens of the Town of Maynard and Other Interested Parties:
Please be advised that the Maynard Board of Selectmen, acting at their December 18, 2018 Board of Selectmen meeting, voted five to zero: “To set the date, time and place of the Annual and Special Town Meeting on Monday, May 20, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. respectively and to designate the Fowler School Auditorium on Tiger Drive as the location for the Annual and Special Town Meetings.”
Sidewalk construction is scheduled to begin the week of Monday October 29th, 2018. Construction activities include excavation, sidewalk paving and roadway paving. The Town of Maynard has contracted with Detour Construction LLC to complete the construction services.
Locations are as follows:
Summer Street – Brooks Street to Apple Ridge Road
Great Road – Tiger Drive to Winter Street
Once construction is started, no on-street parking will be allowed until all construction activities are completed.
As construction progress, homeowners on affected roadways may not be able to access their driveway with vehicles when crews are excavating and paving sidewalks directly adjacent to the property. Individual driveway work may take 2-3 days to complete at each location. Temporary walkways will be installed over the sidewalk while it cures to allow for pedestrian access to each property during construction. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Construction will start on Summer Street at Brooks Street the week of October 29th, and will continue through the above listed streets. Construction is scheduled to continue through the fall, weather permitting. Construction will continue in spring of 2019.
If you have any questions please contact the Maynard DPW at 978-897-1317 or DPW@townofmaynard.net.
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.
Public Works Director Aaron Miklosko announces that the Town of Maynard will have a mandatory outdoor water use restriction beginning Monday June 11th, 2018, and will remain in effect until further notice.
The water restriction is the result of an effort to preserve the town’s water supply following a recent mechanical failure in one of its water production wells.
Under this Water Conservation Restriction, all nonessential outdoor use of water is prohibited at all times. The conservation order will be strictly enforced by local officials.
The elevated conservation restriction will help ensure the town can provide an adequate supply of water for drinking and fire protection.

Jan 24, 2018: The Maynard Historical Commission is pleased to announce it has received a generous grant from Ellen Duggan, lifelong Maynard resident. These funds will be used to expand the work of the organization by celebrating historically relevant properties throughout the town.
