  • Haynes Rd/Fenwick St Intersection Framingham, MA - Framingham
    I just want to have this in writing as a warning to whoever is responsible for making changes in Framingham. In regards to the near misses at the Fenwick/Haynes Rd, mark my words...there WILL be a major accident where someone is seriously injured or even killed if there is nothing done to fix this intersection. I just want this in writing so when this does happen, we can say we warned you, now the guilt is on you for not addressing out concerns. Please at least acknowledge our concerns and don't just send us to leave a message for someone. This is getting out of control and what I mentioned above will happen and I sure as heck would not want that on my conscience. Thanks, Haynes Rd
  • 1015 Concord Street Framingham, MA 01701, USA - Framingham
    I removed this broken sign. This triangle often has temporary signs too close to the right of way. Framingham should prohibit this practice.
  • 2-80 Howard Street Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    Is there any way that there can regularly be an officer in Framingham Common/Framingham train station in the mornings during peak commuting times? As a female, I don't feel completely comfortable in these areas on my way to work in the morning. People staying in the park occasionally scream things as I am walking and often there are intoxicated people sitting in the train station. I have seen officers in the area, but if this is something that could be done daily, I believe that many would benefit from this. Thank you.

    please fix damage from framingham snowplow to ashault curb in front of house
  • 7 Thru 25 Elm Street - Framingham

    Recently the parking ban for the odd side of the street was enforced on the residents of Chestnut and Elm Streets. Many of us were given tickets for parking in front of our homes (very few of us have driveways) with out any warning, prior notification or a chance to simply move our cars to the even side of the streets.

    Yet!

    Yet school teachers, parents, church goers, business owners and business customers are CONSTANTLY parking on the odd side of Elm Street EVERY SINGLE DAY, all throughout the day.

    It seems ridiculously unfair to give the residents of Chestnut and Edwards Streets parking tickets for parking on the odd side of the street when Elm Street has vehicles allowed to CONSTANTLY parked on the odd side of its street (in front of the Mary E Stapleton Elementary school – 25 Elm Street, the Boston Taiwanese Church – 15 Elm Street, the creepy daycare, and the Chimney Sweep Shop – 7 Elm Street) BLOCKING the view of oncoming traffic from drivers attempting to leave Chestnut Street.

    When I myself am trying to turn left or right out of Chestnut Street – onto Elm Street, it is sometimes IMPOSSIBLE to see ANY oncoming traffic from the left or the right because of cars parked on the odd side of Elm Street. Making a left or right turn onto Elm Street is often an extremely dangerous risk. So dangerous in fact, this past January a woman speeding through the Concord/Elm Street light, speeding into the elementary school zone, speeding well over 35 mph in a 20 mph zone, hit my car as I was turning onto Elm Street.

    Perhaps the town of Framingham could better serve its residents by monitoring the parking habits of drivers on busy dangerous streets, and not punish residents who are forced to park on the street due to the cramped layout of houses with no driveways.

  • Dudley Rd. Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    I have been using Cushing Memorial Park to walk my dogs on leash because it is a great space where they can walk safely on leash. However, since the nicer weather, I have encountered many dog owners who refuse to leash their dogs. When informed of the leash laws or requested to leash their dogs, many of them refuse to do so. There is a noticeable lack of enforcement of the leash laws at this park. I would expect the town of Framingham to be more concerned about this due to the huge liability of having unleashed dogs in a public space. There is a gorgeous, brand new and hugely popular children's playground where there could be a dangerous altercation. Dogs should be on leash for not just their own safety but for the safety of other dogs, children, adults and even the seniors who walk at and live next to Cushing. Please provide a visible presence at this park of officials who can at the very least inform and insist people leash their dogs or even issue citations to assert the seriousness of the issue.

    illegal curbside parking by Boston commuter near Framingham train station
  • Edgell Rd And Central Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    This busy intersection (Edgell rd and Central St) is in desperate need of a traffic signal. Many accidents have happened there. I work for a collision center 10 miles away yet still get customers from this terrible intersection. Please Framingham, this has long been needed
  • 120 Woodland Dr Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham

    At the service plaza on the Westbound side of the Mass Pike, in between exits 12 and 13, there is a yellow gate in the back. This is presumably used by authorized personnel only.

    However, recently I have noticed a substantial uptick in cars simply "cutting through" this area to avoid traffic and/or avoid paying a toll. This has resulted in increased traffic in the Woodland Rd/Audrea Rd/Florita Rd neighborhood. Often times this is late at night and neighbors of this quiet area aren't happy with the uptick in unauthorized use of that cut through.

    Who's jurisdiction is this, can the gate be closed and locked aside from official use, and what can be done to enforce this? Thank you!
