On June 2, 2015 (at the Select Board) and on June 11, 2015 (at a community meeting hosted by the Economic Development Committee) Saracen Properties unveiled their plans for the mill complex (formerly Clock Tower Place).
On December 18, 2014, Karina Milchman and Jennifer Raitt of the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) presented a report of findings of MAPC research on Maynard's housing stock to the Planning Board. They discuss demographics, housing supply, affordability and constraints to development. This report is intended to lay the groundwork for further 2015 work by MAPC and potentially be incorporated into an update of the Town Master Plan.
The MAPC is a regional planning agency serving the people who live and work in the 101 cities and towns of Metro Boston. Their mission is to promote smart growth and regional collaboration. For further information on the MAPC go to the MAPC website.
