    Woodland Dr Framingham MA - Framingham
    There is currently access to the Framingham travel service plaza allowed via the residential streets that lead to it (Woodland Dr and Florita). This brings in unnecessary traffic to this otherwise quiet residential neighborhood, resulting in cars speeding very fast through the neighborhood at all hours of the day and night. We are curious if there is any way to restrict or limit public access?

    326-350 Massachusetts 135 Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham


    A small group of us where cycling along 135 on Saturday morning. Two members of our group crashed while cross the diagonal tracks on route 135 just east of the 126 intersection. The deep tracks, with ruts present a very dangerous situation for cyclists. I know of at least 4 people who have crashed here. One of our group wound up at Framingham Union hospital.

    I would just like to suggest a light be installed where Concord Street and Rt 126 merge. I see reckless driving continuously in this area and am surprised there have not been more serious accidents. If no light, then maybe just not allow people to merge onto RT26 from Concord Street? It is an extremely dangerous intersection and I am worried about the safety of the Framingham residents. Thank you for your time.

  • Park Street Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham


    My car was towed from Park Street yesterday, 2/9. However, this street is NOT listed as a banned street for parking during a snow emergency. Can you please advise why I was given a $50 ticket and then required to pay a $50 tow fee, and how I can be refunded since there was no notice that parking on this street was banned or unlawful?

    there are at least 25-40 commercial vehicles parked on eames and pratt sts. over the weekends and at night they don't move on the weekends, many of these vehicles are not registered in Framingham but to the owners of the companys in other towns and lent to the workers, They don't move all weekend long and makes it impossible to park in the area for those of us who are registered here and pay excise tax to Framingham. perhaps resident parking system should be implemented to alleviate the problem and also generate funds for the city
    the program should ban commercial vehicles at night and have a stickers for those who live here with enforcement of parking
    and fines

    3 Parmenter Road Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham


    I am not sure to whom I should address this request, and I would appreciate knowing if I should be contacting someone else.

    I would like for someone to install a collar or shield on the street light in front of our house. Since replacing the bulb with LEDs, the bright light leaks into our house at night, even though we have room-darkening blinds and even though we are set back from the road. I think that the light head is angled down in such a way that it shines towards our house as well as on to the street. I know other cities and towns have done this for residents, and I’m hoping that Framingham can do it as well.

    It’s good to see that the Town is looking for ways to save money, including installing LED streetlights throughout Framingham. In fact, I have just recently replaced most of my incandescent bulbs in my own house to LED’s, so I know the benefits they offer. I also understand that many Police Departments prefer LED’s because they offer truer color fidelity and assist in identifying cars and suspects at night. However, there is also a quality of life and nuisance aspect to these new lights that must not be ignored. I am sure that with a collar or shield, all needs can be accommodated.

    Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

    loud cars with modified mufflers roaring through the neighborhood late at night, perhaps if the mayor or some of the cops lived here something might get done about it but as it is no one cares about the other Framingham that doesn't matter and nothing gets done about it until the elections come
  • 1104 Windsor Drive Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham

    Hello -

    I'm renting a condo in Framingham, MA that had ice dams that made my ceiling in my bedroom collapse. My landlord was alerted of the ceiling leak before the collapse, said they were going to come check the ceiling to make sure nothing drastic would happen while I was away on a work trip. When I returned 5 days later on 2/12, the ceiling collapsed and my landlord never did anything.

    It smells horrible of mold and mildew and my bed has also been ruined and likely many other things I haven't identified yet, including my $2,000 couch.

    Since this occurred my landlord has been hostile and hasn't been accommodating even though I've become homeless since the air quality is so poor in the unit. In addition, the leak has spread to the first floor as well and started to damage other belongings as well.

    I had a vacation planned to Ireland which i couldn't change (nor should I had to since I'm only a renter) and my landlord was supposed to have fixed the issues while I was gone. When I returned nothing had been done and all of a sudden their story had changed to benefit their lack of solution. The last time I spoke with my landlord they were hostile and hung up on me. I live alone and pay $1525 a month and its severely impacting my wellbeing to not have a home. I'm currently living in a hotel and have hired movers to help me pack and move everything I own into storage.

    Please help with this issue as I'm currently hemorrhaging money, am sick from the smell of mold while packing, forced to spend any of my free time dealing with this disaster and my uncooperative landlord.

    Thank you

    Traffic in the mornings around Framingham Center can be easily resolved using one of two options. Either by making Oak street a one way street going east vs west with a right turn only onto Edgell or by creating two lanes on Vernon Street from Grove Street to Edgell Road. The back up at that intersection often goes back to the Mad Willies Parking lot.
  • 120 Waverly Street Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    There is a trash dump by the rail tracks across from Framingham Salvage at 120 Waverly St. It has been a overgrowing, uncontrolled eyesore sight to see the trash overflowing and surrounding the dump bin ; One can also see lot of bed mattresses thrown over and now laying by the tracks. Can these be removed ? It's asuch an eye sore sight and reflects bad on Town when people drive by or see this through the train. May be the trash bin can be located somewhere. Or if it's private one, citation be provided. Thank you for your help.
