Upstairs, downstairs

Recently approved zoning changes to the downtown will allow property owners to build apartments atop of businesses, a zoning first for Maynard.

The new zoning, submitted to Special Town Meeting by the Planning Board, is an effort to revitalize the business district. Town officials said the change could increase property values and make the area more appealing to investors. Last week's Special Town Meeting approved the changes by a vote of 108 to 10.
