Reduced-cost paint offered to beautify houses

To encourage residents to beautify their homes at little cost, town officials and the Aubuchon hardware store in Carver have announced an innovative program to provide exterior paint to eligible Carver residents at a reduced price. The Carver Redevelopment Authority and Aubuchon said they believe that exterior house painting will help raise property values, enhance pride in the town’s residential neighborhoods, and make the town a better place to live. Applicants must demonstrate financial need, and the painting project must be completed within three months of receiving approval. The project application form is available on the Carver town website at under “department headlines.”
