  • Rte 30 @ Whittier Rd Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    Panhandlers on corner of Whittier Rd and Rte 30 Framingham
  • Dudley Road Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    As a regular visitor to Fram Pond I am alarmed to see 4 tents there currently. Three of them have been there since June. I have been told the Framingham Police are allowing these people to live here. There is no trespassing allowed after 9 and I cannot for the life of me see the benefit to this. Lets clean up the park and make it family friendly and keep the homeless out of there.

  • Torrey St Fr - Framingham
    There are some very sketchy people on Torrey st in Framingham hanging around the dumpster. I never see any Police drive around here.
  • Concord Street Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    Well again in Saxonville with the new traffic signals installed it is creating more of a traffic havoc starting from Hamilton Street going onto Concord Street. This was not an issue until these signals were installed. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!!!! Traffic hardly moves. It seems the City of Framingham DOES NOT CARE. I am going to lean on this until you either adjust these timing signals or TAKE THEM DOWN! I suggest you get busy in a hurry
  • Sloane Drive Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham

    Hello - there has been a great deal of interest expressed by the Sloane Dr population of getting natural gas installed on our street. Through extensive research and communication with Eversource, we've learned there is a natural gas hook up on the intersection of Arbetter and Sloane. As a community we are asking for assistance from the town of Framingham to extend the gas line to the remaining homes on Sloane. It would be greatly appreciated if someone can contact me for further discussions. I can be reached by phone or email at 508-808-3015 or nicholas.mancini15@gmail.com

    As always, thank you in advance for your time.

  • 78 Johnson Street Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    I have been notified that two additional street lights are going to be installed along the footpath from Johnson Street to Framingham High School. Gee we residents asked for a street light 20 years ago when there were continuous issues with crime, youth and the path at night!!! Didn't happen.. Now a crime appears to have taken place during the daytime and during school hours - town reaction: put in lights. These light would not have prevented the crime. I would suggest that the two resource officers at the high school get out of the building and walk through the woods at random times throughout the day. I walk those woods daily - usually during school hours. Four out of five weekdays I meet youth in the woods. Why aren't they in school? Sometimes it's two or three and other times it is as many as ten or twelve young people just hanging out and leaving their litter behind when they leave. Maybe the school needs to review their attendance policies so that they know where students are. Maybe transparency needs to be a top priority. The public has a right to know what is going on within the school buildings. The Superintendent can sugar coat the additional police official at the schools all he wants. But the public knows its not about forming good relationships with the police - it's about behavior.
    Yes this is school property. It is wonderful when I see classes with their instructors in the woods doing various educational projects. Please teachers - keep up that good work. Our young people need to know that these environmental areas are wonderful, peaceful and full of many natural wonders to be enjoyed by all.
  • 32 Parker Road Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    At this moment guns are firing on the Framingham Golf Course. They are shooting geese. They are firing these weapons too close to the boundaries and, even though they apparently are overriding Framingham law, they are still in violation of it. Please stop this activity!

  • Highway Archived
    684 Central Street Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham

    The noise coming from Masspike is horrible and getting louder with time. There is a constant loud roaring noise coming from highway which could be heard all around neighborhood surrounding central street, including indian head road and beyond. It is affecting the quality of sleep of residents, and we are unable to enjoy outdoor activities. The simpson park can not be enjoyed because of noise pollution, and there is no peace and quiet in the near by cemetery. The DOT does not even acknowledge there is an issue. The Town must take this issue with DOT, so at least we are on the list for DOT high way noise barrier program for future construction. This is a serious issue which is destroying the peace and tranquility of Framingham residential neighborhoods. I hope the Town will start an initiative to resolve this very important problem.

    Thanks,

  • Elm Steet Framingham, MA - Framingham
    Ive posted about this before and clearly no one sees an issue with this since no police detail this stretch of road. Constant speeding way over the 30mph and more importantly the 20mph when schools are getting out. It's like I'm in the fast lane on 128 over here. I've called and left message at the police station and no one ever gets back to me. I'd like to know WHY the police don't patrol for speeders around the street and particularly Framingham especially with all the horrible accidents of late. It's scary that one of these kids could get killed by speeders and worse speeders who are texting too.
  • Parking Issues Acknowledged
    8 Library St Framingham, MA 01701, USA - Framingham
    When my street was changed to 3 hour parking this spring after the Framingham State students had gone for the summer, I was told that it is a measure to change the habits of the college students. In the past before the signs were installed Framingham State students who live in the dorms would park their cars in front of my house on Sunday night and not move them until they went home for the weekend. So far no cars have been ticketed.
