Community & Economic Development

The Community and Economic Development Division promotes the town's economic development and enhances the quality of life for Framingham residents.

To advance these objectives, the division undertakes a variety of planning, economic, and community development projects, in support of the town's master plan. These projects support the decision-making and actions requested by the Town Manager, Board of Selectmen, and other departments. Ultimately, the division's work:
  • Improves residential neighborhoods
  • Supports our existing businesses
  • Encourages appropriate economic development
  • Promotes Framingham as a desirable place to live, shop, work and invest
The division works closely with other town divisions and stakeholders to ensure comprehensive approaches to community and economic development. The division pursues and administers federal and state grants to advance town objectives.
