  • 60 Forest Avenue Ext Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham

    There is no speed limit posted on Forest Avenue Ext. Therefore the speed limit reverts back to that of the MA statute for unmarked streets which would be 30MPH for this road. The road is 1/8 of a mile and has a sharp 90 turn at the end. It would be very hard to get up to 30 MPH, but people tend to drive at an unsafe speed. There are many children in this neighborhood. Additionally, people tend to use this as a cut through from Warren Road to Walnut Street during rush hour.

    Can you please perform a speed study and determine what the appropriate speed for this road shall be. It doesn't make sense that Warren Road has a lower speed limit than Forest Ave Ext.

  • 81-83 Warren Rd Framingham, MA 01702, USA - Framingham
    Can you please monitor the speed on Warren Ave. People tend to speed down this road at a much higher rate of speed than is posted. (Especially Motorcyclists) Seeing that a school is nearby this could pose a serious threat to the children.

    115 Grant Street Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    People are parking illegally on the wrong side of the street daily. On an already busy street it is making it more dangerous for residents and for people driving down the street as it decreases the road size.
  • 1-57 Nicholas Road Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    It is absolutely absurd that Framingham is allowing a traveling zoo to be set up in a PARKING LOT of a somewhat bust plaza. My concern is for the welfare of these poor animals. The conditions are deplorable and I am incredibly upset that a town that prides itself on being green and animal friendly would allow this "zoo" to be set up in a parking lot or even at all. The people running it clearly have no compassion for these animals as they were left out ALL NIGHT on concrete in a THUNDERSTORM. It truly is enough to make me move away of Framingham. It horrible and disgusting ... CAMELS should not be sitting on the side of the road in some crappy tent on concrete. Absolutely terrible, I expect more and better from Framingham and I sincerely hope that those poor animals make there way to a sanctuary and no longer part of a horrible roadside "zoo." I never want to see anything like that again. EVER.
  • 150 Fenwick Street Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    Someone keeps attaching extra signs to the stop sign at the corner of Fenwick (northbound) at the intersection of Central and Haynes. There is an extra arrow and now a children playing sign. It's distracting and likely to cause an accident. Can this be corrected? Thank you.
  • 7 Weld St Apt 22 Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham

    A neighbor boy here calls Rodrigo Rosa Pereira da Silva, works with Lyft, is Brazilian, lives illegally in the USA because he came as a tourist and still lives here, and there is a strange movement in his residence, at inconvenient times, with other drivers of Fasten, Lyft, we're afraid

    Haynes Framingham, MA - Framingham
    This driver almost killed me and my child as he/she was speeding down Haynes not stopping at all and driving into oncoming traffic into Central. There was a car stopped at Fenwick an oncoming car coming from Central and myself driving part Simpson Park on Central. I had to slam my breaks to avoid a collision as I was going the speed limit of 35. This driver is dangerous and will no doubt kill someone with the way they drive, so careless for life or safety. They continued at a high rate of speed down Central and sped through the Stop sign at Edgell as well then tailgated the driver into the next street.
    The residents recently wanted an extra sign put up on Fenwick and I have to say missing death this morning it's only because they want to do what this driver did. Put up a stop sign on Haynes so this guy can't kill anyone. I thank God I wasn't two second earlier at the point or I would be dead along with my child.

    The LED Streetlights in Framingham are way too bright. The glare from the exposed bulbs is brighter than many headlights, and the bright ring of light they project on the ground creates patterns of intense light and dark that make it hard to see anything outside the ring of light. If you’ve ever stepped from bright sunshine into a room that seemed completely black, only to find that once inside there is plenty of light, that is what these lights do. For those who walk at night, it is impossible to watch for wildlife (skunks, coyotes, raccoons) in yards adjacent to the sidewalk, and the overhead glare makes it uncomfortable to look straight ahead, much less upward.
    The light is not only uneven, but way too bright for adjacent property. My back yard is now lit up like an industrial park, and the light coming in my windows feels like a cheap hotel. Juniper Hill school has a ridiculous amount of light, looking like a scene from a Close Encounters movie. I wonder how this would work for police officers responding to any disturbance there. It seems like police use bright headlights and flashlights to secure an advantage over the bad guys; now when they respond, they will have bright lights shining in their eyes, while being brightly illuminated to anyone wanting to cause trouble.
    I have read on the Ameresco site that LED lights are easily dimmable, and on the Framingham site that the project is only partially complete, and that adjustments will be made. If the lights could be adjusted to put out one half to one quarter of the light they are currently putting out, they would be safer, better looking and use much less energy. It is my hope that this is the plan, and that someone in charge already knows the problems and this post is premature. However, if the lights can not be dimmed, or dimmed only a little, I would urge the town to put a brief hold on the deployment of these lights and find a light that will provide more even, less obtrusive light and save even more energy, perhaps even at a lower cost per fixture.
