  • 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.
  • 50 Grant St Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham

    If you live in this area, please see attached photo. The prices are what you were assessed per square foot of land on your property in 2018. In 2018 you were taxed approximately $16.38 per $1000 you were assessed. As for land, If you live in this area, you could have been overassessed, underassessed, or taxed for correct land value. Are you waterfront? Are you inland? Are you by the abandoned building? Are you on a busy street?

    Those who are in the Orange Numbers, are OVERASSESSED and you could be paying taxes on an additional $10,000-$60,000. At an overassessment of $10,000, you are paying $168 to the city, which you shouldn't owe. If you are a Green Number, you are UNDERASSESSED, you are getting a swell deal from the city and are not paying your fair share of taxes.

    Are you orange, and your neighbor green? Is your land type the same? shaded? flat? This is a disparity. You need to address this with the city.

    Take it up with the Head Assessor- Tell him you don't want to be overassessed! William G. Naser wgn@framinghamma.gov

  • 835 Pleasant Street Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    right in front of the new Genzyme parking lot on route 30 there is a really bad dip on the road. I was driving on the road today and I actually saw someone from out of town go off the dip and all four tires actually left the ground and when landed he lost control of the vehicle and almost took out another car that happened to be a school bus van. If you are driving from Southborough to Framingham you will pass New York Ave on your right and this dip is somewhere between New York Ave and that turn right before it says entering Framingham
  • 8 Ford Lane Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    I have seen on several occasions that the owner of a dog who lives (they both live) at 10 Ford Lane in Framingham, takes out his dog on leash at around 8 am and let's the dog pee on his own property and then leads the dog over to the back piece of 14 hickey drive to direct the dog to poop there, and then does not ever clean up the poop. 10 Ford lane abutts a wetland, and this is polluting. The owner should be cleaning up after the dog. You can see the poops right around a tree stump at the back of the 14 hickey drive property. If necessary, I can upload an image.

  • Concord Street/A Street Concord Street/Hamiton Street Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    What is it going to take to have these signals mentioned above to take them down. It causes more of a traffic havoc and the City of Framingham does not care

  • Framingham Massachusetts - Framingham

    So learning about a rape that took place in Framingham 5 days ago. What is the town going to do to keep it safe? I never see police driving slow around the streets. Just going fast and doing detailed work.

    As far as the town goes..when is it going to be a nice town where someone can walk down town and feel safe? This town needs to step up and and people need to keep it clean..

  • 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.
  • 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
