Selectmen listened to a report from Town Manager Bob Halpin Wednesday night that recommended demolishing the three-tier parking garage adjacent to the public library and creating a surface parking lot.
The project will cost an estimated $935,000.
The Lexington Street parking garage project is one of the 20 articles on the Town Meeting warrant.
Selectmen glanced at the 20 articles in the warrant for the Fall Special Town Meeting, which is scheduled for Oct. 16.
Selectmen plan to have petitioners come to the board with presentations for their articles.
Three articles ask Town Meeting to overturn recent action by the Selectmen and begin billing Eastleigh Farm for town water.
Another article is a request by Town Meeting member Herb Chasan for a Hoops and Homework program to revitalize playgrounds and establish academic centers for underserved children in specific Framingham neighborhoods. The program is estimated to cost $81,000.
