Maynard Housing Production Plan

HPP Survey Final Flyer

Maynard is preparing a “housing production plan” or HPP with MAPC (Metropolitan Area Planning Council). A key intent of the HPP is to identify community opinions, provide a blueprint to help guide future decision-making and analyze market conditions/demand for future housing stock. The HPP is a standalone document that may be adopted directly or by reference into the town’s master plan. When it is completed (expected early 2016), it will be submitted to the Mass Department of Housing and Community Development for approval.  This is a link to other municipalities that have adopted HPP’s http://www.mass.gov/hed/community/40b-plan/housing-production-plan.html .

 

The first phase of the plan involved a “needs assessment” which has been completed and being prepared for release.  Phase One also included a meeting between MAPC, local developers and Realtors. The second phase of the HPP is now underway: this will involve a brief survey for residents and at 7 PM, July 1 at Town Hall, the first of two public “visioning sessions” with MAPC.

 

The survey is “live” now and can be taken on line by Maynard residents at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/maynardhpp

Maynard Police Department Receives Prestigious State Certification Status

photo-4-600x401

MAYNARD – Police Chief Mark Dubois and Town Administrator Kevin Sweet are pleased to announce that the Maynard Police Department has achieved State Certification from the Massachusetts Police Accreditation Commission (MPAC) at an awards ceremony on Thursday, June 4 at the Connors Center in Dover.

Certification is a self-initiated evaluation process by which police departments strive to meet and maintain the highest standards of law enforcement, and is considered the best measure of a police department against the established best practices around the country and region.

“Receiving Certification acknowledges the Maynard Police Department is in line with the highest possible standards of law enforcement,” Chief Dubois said. “I am incredibly proud of our entire department and all of the hard work that has gone into this process, we are now one step closer to receiving the Commission’s highest award of Accreditation.”

Chief Dubois also singled out Lt. Michael Noble, the department’s Accreditation Manager.

“Lt. Noble did an incredible job,” Dubois said. “I am very proud of him, and he should be very proud of the results we saw this week.”

The certification process is long and vigorous. It involves both an internal self-review and an external assessment by the Commission’s team of subject matter experts.

The MPAC program requires that departments meet all of the 257 mandatory standards and 60 percent of the 125 optional ones. These carefully selected standards include: Jurisdiction and Mutual Aid, Collection and Preservation of Evidence, Communications, Working Conditions, Crime Analysis, Community Involvement, Financial Management, Internal Affairs, Juvenile Operations, Patrol Administration, Public Information, Records, Traffic, Training, Drug Enforcement, and Victim/Witness Assistance.

“Going through the process initially requires intense self-scrutiny, and ultimately provides a quality assurance review of the agency,” said Donna Taylor Mooers, the MPAC Executive Director. “Achieving Certification from the Massachusetts Police Accreditation Commission is a very significant accomplishment and a recognition highly regarded by the law enforcement community.”

Earlier this year, the Department was evaluated by a team of Commission-appointed assessors who found the Department to be in full compliance with all of the necessary standards required for Certification.

“On behalf of the town of Maynard I am honored to congratulate our police department on such an outstanding accomplishment,” Town Administrator Sweet said. “We have always known what an excellent job our officers do, but receiving Certification is another level of recognition. Well done.”

Certification has been granted for a period of three years. Participation in the program is strictly voluntary.
