The Office of Municipal Services manages and operates the planning, economic development and regulatory service functions of the Town. The Office is a customer service department oriented to the review and inspection processes that ensure the public health, safety, environmental and community concerns are met in an effective, timely and cost efficient manner.
The Office is managed by the Assistant Town Administrator / Executive Director of Municipal Services.
The Office of Municipal Services integrates the following different regulatory divisions:
- Public Health
- Building and Inspections
- Planning and Zoning
These separate departments were merged into one office which has been focused to better serve the citizens, business permit holders and contractors by enhancing the management and communication ability among all of these entities. These divisions working independently and collaboratively enforce all codes, laws, and ordinances relating to their respective divisions. Staff provides support to the Town’s regulatory boards and commissions respectively:
- Board of Health
- Planning Board
- Board of Appeals
- Local Licensing Authority
- Conservation Commission
If you have any general questions or requests, please email Municipal Services.
The Town of Maynard has created this Business Guide (PDF) 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!
