Maynard’s Economic Development Committee (EDC) provides advice on and program leadership for the town’s economic development opportunities, including, but not limited to, preparation of economic action plans, programs to support existing businesses, initiatives to improve business development, branding and promotional activities and the attraction of new investment. It will oversee the granting of funds to local businesses/building owners from community enhancement funds and provide leadership in ensuring recommendations and strategies are implemented. It works closely with town departments, boards and commissions, the Maynard Business Alliance (MBA), the Maynard Cultural Council (MCC) and State and regional organizations to leverage resources on behalf of Maynard.
EDC membership includes town officials, representatives from MBA, MCC, the Assabet Valley Chamber of Commerce (AVCC), the State representative’s office and at-large residents. There are liaison representatives from the Board of Selectmen and the Finance Committee.
