Each fiscal year, the EDIC develops a work plan of projects to complete in support of existing economic development plans. Projects are completed with assistance from Community and Economic Development (C&ED) personnel. Recent projects include:
The EDIC created the Framingham Downtown Renaissance (FDR) in 2003 to increase awareness of the potential of the downtown. It includes institutions, businesses, government, residents and local community groups. FDR is now a non-profit entity, but works closely with the C&ED Division and the EDIC.
Given the increased scope and profile of its activities over the past year, the EDIC felt it was necessary to review how it interacted with guests and members of the public who might attend their meetings. To this end, they adopted a Public Participation Policy on December 16, 2015. This policy addresses the manner in which discussions will be directed and how members of the public may provide commentary.
