Jim Rizoli CCFIILE.COM Bob and Sue, I totally agree with you. So the question that I haveRead More is.... Why haven't more business come to Framingham? There are lot's of store fonts empty. We now have Cafe Belo empty, The old Union house is empty....the list goes on. There is one new business coming into the old KFC on Waverley St and it's a breakfast lunch place. Other than that things a slow coming.... I would love to see some sort of restaurant/ice cream place come to Cushing Park, maybe with some sort of water play area (No pool) for the kids. I have some good ides for it that I saw in Springfield. They have a great park there that has one.

While we have gotten off the original topic of Bob's blog post, I think this is a great discussion.Read More Perhaps some of the new "Town Meeting" members have some ideas on what businesses Framingham needs in town or ways to encourage more business to come to Framingham... *** To continue the discussion, restaurants seem to replace the ones that leave. I hear that there is a new one moving into the old Riley's Roast Beef in Nobscot, and the owner would like to bring back the "car nights." Jim: the breakfast place downtown at the former KFC is another good example. Add the new Mexican place at the old Bickford's on Route 30 and Angry Ham's too. But how do we encourage more retail, technical, medical, educational, bio businesses to take home in Framingham? Mt Wayte annoys me everytime I drive by it, as much as Nobscot annoys others. There is no excuse for that Filene's Basement location to be empty for so long. It's time to be pro-active - make a plan & actively recruit more businesses. Let's not focus on what is wrong but what will work and make things better. Identifying solutions is always better than identifying problems.
