Crain starts work as town planner

Continue reading below

Mary Crain of Mattapoisett started work this month as town planner, filling a slot that had been vacant since late summer, following the departure of John Charbonneau for the town planner job in Raynham. Crain, who worked in town planning in Watertown, Everett, and Salem, got her master’s degree in planning from Rutgers University in 1994. Though she has worked in largely urban areas, being a planner in a small town isn’t foreign to her, she said. Crain has been on the Mattapoisett Planning Board for almost two years and will continue to serve on it, she said. She said the major challenge of the job in a town that is “primarily a residential community is trying to strike a balance between reasonable economic development and growth to offset their tax concerns. It’s a very pro-agriculture town, so we’re trying to find a way to attract more housing opportunities without overstressing the infrastructure.”
