"Clock Tower Place" No More! Let's Welcome "Mill&Main"

This evening the public got to hear the Saracen presentation about their proposed changes to the mill complex.

Let it be known that the buildings formerly know as "Clock Tower Place" will now be called "Mill&Main," emphasizing the new positioning of having the mill become more a part of the downtown.

The library's Roosevelt Room (the largest meeting room) was standing room only, with lots of people hanging out as close as possible in the lobby. Those present seemed very enthusiastic about what they were hearing, even breaking into applause and cheers several times.

Did you miss the presentation? If so, you can catch the same presentation made to the Board of Selectmen. It's available on the Town of Maynard Web site, click here and scroll down to it. There seems to be a little problem with the sound quality at the beginning, but you can still hear Henry St. Hilaire (of Saracen Properties) speak, it just buzzes a little from time to time.

Questions asked at the public presentation were different from those at the BOS meeting, so it might be a good idea, if you attended the June 11th presentation, to listen to the one on the town's site. It lasts about forty-five minutes, visuals and all.

At the public presentation, one man stood up and talked about how he and his wife are moving to Maynard from Sudbury, and how they felt like they bought at the exact right time because they could see that there are a lot of good things that are going to be happening here. I couldn't agree more.

There was a journalist in attendance who will be writing about the presentation, so I'll end here and let him do his job. I'll post a link to his article when I get it. In the meantime, you can keep an eye on the Mill&Main Web site for updated information.

Now, let's all start practicing saying Mill&Main. I wonder how long it will take for us to make it a local thing.
