We asked this question to our Framingham Patch Facebook fans what the Town of Framingham should get under its Christmas tree? We got a lot of responses, which we posted some below.
But please feel free to add your thoughts in the comments below!
Kathy Carmel: "Safety on the roads. Common sense not to cross Route 9 on foot. Use the foot bridge. Sober parents and drivers. Good health and appreciation for what you have."
Rachael Wheeler Peisel: "No higher taxes for homeowners."
Lauren Strauss: "A contract for our teachers."
Laura Miller: "Townwide elementary school music and performing arts programs."
Sandi Richiazzi-Natoli: "Lower tax rates for properties."
Alex Phoenix: "More salt for school sidewalks."
Jean Welch: "Crosswalk at Cushing and Winter for kids at the bus stop and a sidewalk on Long Ave. would be nice too."
Linda D. Levitt: "More businesses so taxes could be lowered. Framingham is a wonderful community but the high taxes are driving people out!"
Pam O'Callaghan: "To be a city."
Leah Silver Graves: "We like it a town! No dictator ... or mayor."
Michael Ricchiazzi: "To no longer be a town."
Shana Adams: "Another crosswalk by Framingham State University so students can cross safely at Maynard and Route 9."
Ryan Molloy: "Get rid of SMOC."
