These are all the post for further discussion from the FramGov list. It is linked so you can join in on the discussions there if you join, but watch out for the mother hen. Linda, You've got to cross your T's and dot you i's.

Jims post shows the intent of the guy that wants to build this downtown site. These people do not give a hoot WHO lives downtown. I forsee apartments going to the Brazilians and others, Immigrants, Probably ILLEGAL, and them subletting them out. Can't wait for the bed bugs.

Provisions should be built into the leases to FORBID this and if they do it TERMINATION of the Lease and bye bye from Framingham back to Brazil or go live with the Framingham school committee personal and Selectmen, they don't give a shit about the illegals being here.

Anyone complaining about their post being here......too bad

Please accept this letter to the Planning Board regarding the petition of 101
Concord Street, Framingham, MA. This letter is for 11 July 2013 Planning Board
meeting. Members of the Framingham Town Meeting, Precinct 14 met and unanimous
agreed on these and other concerns. We believe a good development is both
feasible and desirable in downtown Framingham. This current development as
proposed does not met this criteria and will be harmful to neighborhood and
urban development.


I remain very concern that 101 Concord Street has petition to have reduced
parking including reduced handicapped parking. The argument that downtown
Framingham aspirations is to become Allston or Brighton and have a permanent
parking problems is concerning. We know that parking overflows will be pushed
to the neighborhood and/or street parking. Any argument that downtown parking
should have different standards as neighborhoods in northern Framingham feels
insulting. Because the current developer has ample parking in his inventory, we
ask that the town require them to use this parking as required by zoning


The 24 housing development that has 500-600 square feet apartments is too dense
for this neighborhood. I encourage that apartments be built to meet current
zoning regulations to meet parking and other requirements.


The current developer has had no communications with the neighborhood or
members from Town Meeting about this development. Working with Ms. Faubert,
Framingham Town Meeting, Precinct 14 Chair, I hope that there can be
consultation and conversation with neighborhood leaders to make this an idea
development for all. With a consultation and potential scale back, this
development will remain very profitable for the developer and meet the needs
and character of the Master Plan of Framingham.

While I don't feel that 36 parking spaces is sufficient, I don't understand
how 24 apartments would require 101 parking spaces.
The parking rules expect better than 4 cars per apartment? Something's

I'm happy to see that my fellow P14 neighbors feel the same way as I do about
the inadequate parking space that the developer request.
In regards to this project working for the best interest of the Master Plan for
the town....I have my doubts.
It all depends who the developer allows to take up residences in these apts.
For what I've seen in whom he rents to now these people are made up of a
transient type of people with no plans of staying here and contributing
positively to downtown revitalization.
Not only that, these type of people tend to bring in more of their "extended"
family with them which will be another problem within itself. But lets not
get ahead of ourselves here quite yet.
If you want to see the Downtown be reduced to Social Service heaven then I say
go for it, as it already exist in that area now.
But if you want to raise the level of who lives there then you might want to
consider who the developer and the town might be targeting to occupy these
I'm not too hopeful on this one. If not planned accordingly we could make the
downtown even worse than it is now.
And for what I can see it's not what most people would call a diverse and
upcoming neighborhood.
The first big thing I ask is the developer and the Town might want to promise
us that they're not going to allow the illegal alien laborers to hang out in
front of the Padaria Bakery as they have been doing for the last 15 years or
so. Not many other towns would allow that to happen. But then again not many
towns around us have the problem that we have there.
Seems like Framingham hasn't felt that that situation is a problem. I say it's
a huge problem.
Make your demands now or the project will just be another boondoggle for the

P14Further concerns on 101 Concord Street development From: Ned Price Date: 7:33pm, Jul 12 Share: Link to this by copy/pasting the URL below into an email:

I attended hearings 2 years ago on this developer's plans for the adjacent
triple deckers on Frederick Street. At the time he said he would renovate
the four
farthest from Concord Street and tear down the one closest to Concord
In fact he has torn down the four he planned to renovate and the one he said
he would tear
down is still standing. I suspect from this that his new plan may also be
somewhat "tentative"

Good point Ned! On another note....I remember that.
This landlord is IMO, a type that cares not who lives in his buildings, as long
as the money comes in.
Legal status...Who cares,drugs being sold around the buildings, no problem.
If this is what you want downtown then go for it.
We have to take to task what the end result will be if these allowances are
allowed to happen.
There has to be a more compressive accountability here.
We have people who are supposed to be looking out for the towns back
here....sadly they have not brought up ANY of these issues. Why are we paying
then good money is they are not questioning these things?
This is unacceptable! If you are not getting down to what is really going on
downtown then you're living in a dream world.
We already as a town have dropped the ball on who comes and goes, I guess this
will be just another.
So the developer makes a ton of money and we the town taxpayers get to pay for
it , hmmm..seems to be something horribly wrong with this picture. Am I the
only one who is seeing this?
