  • 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!

  • 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.
  • 1099-1103 Edgell Road Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    Speeding on Edgell Rd from Nobscot to the Sudbury line is out of control. Not only are cars doing 50mph on Edgell Rd, the trucks are passing through here think its another Rte 9. All the trash trucks going to the transfer station in Marlboro and Hudson fly through here. Not excluding Framingham Town trucks who are some of the biggest offenders. Dump trucks and trailer dumps going back and for to Cavvechio's in Sudbury also including there trucks who get ridiculous in the summer months. Bengal trucking is also a big offender. Everyone knows that nothing is ever, or rarely done about speeding on Edgell Rd. The town and the police just don't care because it would be to much work. Beside, they are always to busy coddling downtown Framingham. Cruises are always sitting,(sleeping?) in Nobscot Plaza or; the bank or the empty bank when they could at least sit on Gibson or apple dor to slow people down. But again, that would be to much work and take away from there down time.

  • 99 Fraser Rd Framingham, MA 01702, USA - Framingham
    A dead tree on the town property fell down last night and damaged my fence. The damage needs to be addressed by the town of Framingham. There are other dying trees on the same property that also require maintenance.
  • Juniper Lane Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham

  • 454 Water Street Framingham, MA - Framingham
    I was terminated from my employment at the Framingham Public Schools after an investigation that I created a hostile environment with a teacher by raising a topic that was not considered appropriate during a lunch break in which no students were present. I believe it is my right as a former employee to have a copy of the Human Resources investigation report. Emailing requests to those individuals who would expedite delivery of the investigation report to me, I have not received a promising response, suggesting possible retaliation for asserting my right (i.e. I was told my request would be forwarded to the Chief Human Resources Officer by the Staffing Manager, the Chief has not responded at all to my email messages); I suspect the Human Resources Department is secretly censoring the investigation report to conceal potential discrimination violations. I politely request a copy of the investigation report from the Human Resources Department of the Public Schools, which I believe it is my right to have. Please correct me if a public institution reserves the right to secretly censor a report regarding their decision to terminate me. It is my opinion that adequate training would have better informed me of what was expected of me; I was only offered Conflict of Interest training and a digital Handbook, which was quite minimal for the expectations I was held to as a substitute, namely that of a teacher.
  • 19 Rons Way Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    Residents at 19 Ron's Way, Framingham, burn wood in their backyard for many hours per night most weekends. The smoke from these fires permeates the surrounding neighborhood and infiltrates other homes. My family members with asthma and allergies are severely affected by this, and we are no longer able to keep our windows open on warm weekend nights (and we have no air conditioning!). According to the Massachusetts Open Burning Law (310 CMR 7.07), "open burning, including fire pits, must be done without causing a nuisance."
  • 162-202 Massachusetts 126 Framingham, MA 01702, USA - Framingham
    Street light at Sanger/Concord Street intersection was struck by snow plow. Unsure if light still works, but housing has fallen away, leaving wiring exposed to elements. In current state the light fosters an ugly north entrance to Downtown Framingham.
