  • Concord Street At School Street As Well As A Street Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    What idiot came up with the idea of installing traffic signals at Concord Street and School Street as well as Concord/A Street? This causes a major traffic havoc. That was STUPID!! Take them down.

    The LED Streetlights in Framingham are way too bright. The glare from the exposed bulbs is brighter than many headlights, and the bright ring of light they project on the ground creates patterns of intense light and dark that make it hard to see anything outside the ring of light. If you’ve ever stepped from bright sunshine into a room that seemed completely black, only to find that once inside there is plenty of light, that is what these lights do. For those who walk at night, it is impossible to watch for wildlife (skunks, coyotes, raccoons) in yards adjacent to the sidewalk, and the overhead glare makes it uncomfortable to look straight ahead, much less upward.
    The light is not only uneven, but way too bright for adjacent property. My back yard is now lit up like an industrial park, and the light coming in my windows feels like a cheap hotel. Juniper Hill school has a ridiculous amount of light, looking like a scene from a Close Encounters movie. I wonder how this would work for police officers responding to any disturbance there. It seems like police use bright headlights and flashlights to secure an advantage over the bad guys; now when they respond, they will have bright lights shining in their eyes, while being brightly illuminated to anyone wanting to cause trouble.
    I have read on the Ameresco site that LED lights are easily dimmable, and on the Framingham site that the project is only partially complete, and that adjustments will be made. If the lights could be adjusted to put out one half to one quarter of the light they are currently putting out, they would be safer, better looking and use much less energy. It is my hope that this is the plan, and that someone in charge already knows the problems and this post is premature. However, if the lights can not be dimmed, or dimmed only a little, I would urge the town to put a brief hold on the deployment of these lights and find a light that will provide more even, less obtrusive light and save even more energy, perhaps even at a lower cost per fixture.

    Not to say much the photos already speak for itself .... Locking the door of a store, stench , and the Framingham prefecture not take any action for that ? 3 months this junk 's there ... we'll have to call a television station ? I see the suffering of the owner of this establishment with the flies and the stench and no one helps .
  • 51-59 Woodland Dr Framingham MA 01701, USA - Framingham
    (Daily occurrences)Disturbing the peace, speeding, texting and driving, drug use while in drivers seat of car, potential drug dealer, muffler is not up to state regulations. There is a light-ish blue mid 2000's Honda Civic that drives through my neighborhood every day, sometimes close to 10 times a day that parks at the truck stop parking lot off of I-90 in the neighborhood of Woodland Dr. His muffler is very loud and often wakes me and my children up at night and in the morning. He is constantly texting and driving, constantly speeding and I am afraid that he will hit a pedestrian. He comes by at very random times, but I have heard him drive by at all hours. There is no pattern to the time frames and he does not work at the truck stop. He usually drives there and leaves almost immediately after. The other day I went to the truck stop to grab dinner and I saw him parked there and he appeared to be doing drugs, and then a car pulled up beside him and got into the passengers seat of the car. We think that he is selling drugs due to the frequency and briefness of his visits. We would like to remain anonymous for the safety of our family but we would truly appreciate an officer scoping this situation out and making sure there are no drugs being sold in our neighborhood.
    Thank you.
  • Irving/Hollis Streets Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    I and a bunch of others were sitting in traffic on Irving Street entering Hollis Street but the timing on the traffic signals are very poor. The green light was only like fifteen to twenty seconds. Please look into this matter, Better Yet, take them down. It is causing a major havoc as there is no need for additional signals in Downtown or Saxonville.
  • 1001 Waverly Street Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    This house has been rented for the past few years. There have been numerous occupants living in the house at one time. It is a single family house and there have been numerous families living in it at one time. The backyard has been full of trash, appliances, roofing materials, numerous metal ladders, paint, torn up rugs, furniture such as mattresses, couches, etc, clothing, and anything else you can imagine. The yard smells and it is attracting animals. A few months ago they had a fire in the backyard because the tenants were burning things and the fire department had to be called. The property is disgusting and it is bringing down the property values of the surrounding houses. The Board of Health really needs to look into this property because it probably needs to be condemned or seriously cleaned out!!!!!!! I wish I could upload all of the pictures I have, but it will only take one image. The picture does not even come close to how disgusting this property is!!!!!
  • 9 California Ave Framingham Massachusetts - Framingham
    It feels like my car is going to loose suspension when going over that railways.
    The asphalt there needs to be repaired. The rise level is off and has potholes around it.
    Same goes for the useless "left out" railway at 38 California Ave. (down the street towards the mountain).
  • 28 Bridges Street Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham
    People that don't live in the area are storing commercial and business vehicles on Bridges and Naples Street. There are no spots for the people that actually live in the neighborhood.
  • Concord Street By School Street As Well As Concord By A Street Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham

  • Parking Issues Acknowledged
    100 Wilson St Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham

    I would like to know why we have parking regulations if they are not enforced. I can't recall how many times I reported this issue. We need enforcement.

    Vehicles parked on both sides of Wilson St, this is a safety hazard, the street is not wide enough.

    What are the regulations for commercial vehicles parking on the street. There are so many big trucks and construction van on this street that looks like a warehouse district.

  • Parking Issues Acknowledged
    21-25 Eden St Framingham, MA 01702, USA - Framingham
    Everyday for the past few months Eden Street, a small residential street, has been used for employee/ client parking by Union Ave. business CommCreative. This creates tight driving for this small street and limits parking for our guests. A private business should have ample parking spaces and should not jam up small residential streets.
  • 655 Concord St Framingham, Massachusetts - Framingham

    Waste management just came and collected trash from the dumpster at 655 concord street at 3:54 AM

    This is unacceptable to the residents on this street and violates the noise ordinance. Please fine this business and make them stop collecting trash at such an obscene hour. This is my second complaint on this address and no one has done anything. I have video this time of the truck turning out of the business. They do it so fast because they know they are going to get in trouble when the dumpster door swings and makes a huge boom to wake up the neighborhood!
