Notified About

  • 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.
  • 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

    As always, thank you in advance for your time.

    There are years of trash accumulating along Rt 9 around the underpass across from FSU. Rt is the face of Framingham-- this is what we look like for thousands of people who drive through our community daily. Can we get the section between Pleasant and Temple (the underpass area is the worst) cleaned up?

    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.

    I just saw on the news and in the paper, the story of the woman who was pushed through this intersection. I was very upset to hear no one was cited in this incident. This woman was in the far right lane trying to turn left as she approached the lights
    I have no idea what this woman was thinking maybe she just realized she needed to turn left as she said. It is more likely the right lane was moving faster and she used it to get by the cars waiting patiently in the correct ln!
    I see this happen every day at this intersection, Edgell rd-Main st-rt 9 and 126- 135. These people drive down the wrong ln because its moving faster and then just stop at the intersection and try to squeeze over while holding up all the cars behind them, with no concern for the chaos they are causing or the danger they have created.
    This happens 100s of times a day in Framingham alone! Are the Police blind to this a minimum this should be an improper lane change..but no citation, I guess she did everything by the book and we should all drive this way!

  • 445 Concord St. Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    Dear Framinghtom Police Staff
    My name is Ernesto, and this is what happened to me today. After a long day of trying to go from Boston to Framingham, this guy that was offering a bike for sale through Facebook Marketplace was cheating from my perception. I contacted him on Thursday since this moment we kept in contact. On Friday we agreed to meet today, Saturday 21st. in Fram. I explained that I had to figure how to get there cause I am new in Boston. Due to a delay in the Orange Line T, I missed the Commuter rail to Fram. I contacted him and explained the situation. He seemed to be very kind, and told me to come over. When I got in Fram. he sent a message saying that it looked like I was not going to Fram. and he was leaving with his family far from home. I told him that I was just arriving to Fram. and I sent picture as a proof. He apologized first because he thought I was cheating. I explained to every situation I had to get there and asked How could he do that to me? He asked for my number and called to apologize becuase he has sold the bike 10 minutes before I got off the train. I was so disappointed and explained to him that I had only a few weeks in Boston, came from Panama to attend my graduate program and how could he do that to me. I was so surprised because we kept communicating all the time. He said that he had nothing to do and apologized by offering another bike he had, but this other bike was not the same style than that of the one I was looking for. Nothing else to do, I seated in the Miranda Bread, a small coffee store in front of the Comm. rail station. While I was waiting for the next commuter back to Boston, I looked for more bikes for sale nearby, of course i didn't want to go there just for nothing. Surprisingly I found more bikes nearby, most of them were offered by the same guy and also posted within the last few months. I realized that this guy could be either stealing bikes or intentionally buying stolen bikes. I then thought that thank God I didn't meet this guy and buy his bike. However I do think that is this guy is involved in this business, there should be something that the police can do. The 445 Concord Street is the address he gave to me to go for the bike.
