Affordable Housing Waitlist
30-Jan-2019: For inquiries about affordable housing at “The Vue” (the rental multi-family housing at Maynard Crossing aka 129 Parker Street), the developer is now maintaining a database of interested households. These households will be notified when marketing begins and will receive an application and information packet. Ultimately there will be a lottery for the final awarding of the affordable units.
Please direct interested households to email the developer’s housing agent at firstname.lastname@example.org . In the email they should provide their full name, contact information, and make clear they are interested in the Maynard development.
For additional information, please contact Bill Nemser (Maynard Planning Director) at 978-897-1302 or email@example.com.
