John Charbonneau, who is coming from a dual role as town planner for both Wareham and Rochester, was named the new Raynham Town Planner. Raynham had been without a town planner since the retirement of Marily Whalley at the end of 2012. “It’s time to put someone in there and we felt strongly that full time would be needed for the full range of what’s going on in Raynham,” said Selectman Richard Schiavo, who led the search committee to fill the position. “We put a high value in supporting the Planning Board and the economic development component, and we believe he is going to bring that for us in a full time position.” Charbonneau assumes the position as a new Walmart superstore is set to open on Route 138 later this year, which potentially could lead to additional development in the area, and at the same time Raynham Park hopes to build a slot parlor casino four miles down the road.

To the outsider, Raynham in 1996 was the dog track on Route 138 and the disjointed commercial strip called Route 44. To then-new Town Planner Richard McCarthy, it was a community to discover. He remembered the words of a professor at Syracuse University: Break down the perceptions and find the true story. And the real story - tucked between the maze of state highways - was a beautiful town of oak-lined main streets, historic houses and numerous scenic back roads. “People here take great pride in their homes and the architecture,” McCarthy said last week from an office filled with family photos, file cabinets and rolls and rolls of site plans waiting to be reviewed. McCarthy, who is leaving his Raynham position of 12 years for a job in Randolph, has accomplished at least part of his mission to “break down the negatives, bring out the positives and then try to improve the negatives.” He completed a master plan and an open space plan for the town. He pushed for passage of “transfer development rights” and cluster housing bylaws that reward property owners and developers for preserving natural settings. He sent local properties into cyberspace with geographic information mapping. He helped the town reach its affordable housing quota without the “horror” projects.
