HomeMy WebLinkAbout2010 Annual Report and Town Meeting JournalIMM MASSACHUSETTS O =a ME Annual Report Year Ending December 31, 2010 Framingham's Town Seal: In the year 1900, the Framingham Town Seal was redesigned for the Town's bicentennial to recognize our community's prominence in education and transportation. The Framingham State Normal School, a free public school and the first of its kind in America, is represented by the structure at the top of the design. Governor Danforth, the founder of Framingham and owner of much of its land, is acknowledged by the words "Danforth's Farms 1662" on the shield at the center. The wheel on the shield with spokes drawn as tracks radiating in six different directions represents the steam and electric railroads and signifies the Town's position as a transportation hub. Surrounding the words "Town of Framingham Incorporated 1700" is an illustrative border of straw braid, which honors the prominent role Framingham played in the manufacture of hats and bonnets in the 1800s.

The impact of flattening revenues coupled with cost increases such as skyrocketing health care costs resulted in staff reductions and close monitoring of overall spending, including capital spending. Health Care is the single biggest budget buster with costs rising faster than revenues. Health Care costs have serious long -range implications as well. In response, the Board of Selectmen continued to pursue long -term Health Care reform on several fronts. Through the Town Manager, we have been actively negotiating a fair and competitive 3 -year Health Care contract with the Public Employee Coalition (PEC). At this writing, we are still in negotiations with the PEC. The Board of Selectmen also authorized the creation of a new and more competitive Health Care plan for new employees. This plan, while leaving current employees and retirees unaffected, would lower the Health Care cost to the Town. The PEC has challenged the Town's right to create such programs in court based on their interpretation of Section 19, Coalition Bargaining. Again as of this writing, the appeal is still pending. In a joint effortwith Town Meeting, the Board of Selectmen sponsored a home rule petition that seeks legislative permission to allow Framingham to end Coalition Bargaining. This action would place us on par with a majority of municipalities in the State. Town Meeting passed this article and a Bill has been filed in this upcoming year's Legislative Session. We continue to work in close collaboration with the Massachusetts Municipal Association and our regional partners to lobby our legislative delegation for solutions to long term health care relief. Addressing the Health Care situation in a fair and sustainable way continues to be a top priority of the Board of Selectmen and the management team. The Board's priorities for this year focused on six areas: economic development, neighborhood development, long -term capital infrastructure, energy efficiency, environmental issues and issues pertaining to the administration and the budget. The Board continued to work with the professional team to develop and implement an economic development plan targeting the Village Centers and Tech Park. Design and construction of the Downtown Traffic and Streetscape Improvements project is progressing well with a construction start date projected for next year. This investment coupled with the investment plans of the new owner of the Arcade building, brings new hope to realizing a revitalized Downtown. The Town continued our close collaboration with the Framingham Housing Authority implementing the Neighborhood Stabilization Program. Considerable strides were made in acquiring, rehabilitating and reselling vacant foreclosed properties in designated target neighborhoods. This year the program has purchased, with Federal dollars, five vacant properties, completed renovations on four, and sold two more. As with the Economic Development plan, the Board continued to work with the professional team to develop and implement a neighborhood plan around quality of life issues such as public safety and code enforcement. A campaign to promote Framingham's many wonderful attributes was launched with a General Government 1 Town of Framingham marketing brochure and website under the banner Cho os e Framingham. com. It highlights the reasons our Town is a great place for living, learning, enjoying and working. Water and Sewer infrastructure improvements to Tech Park continue to support Genzyme and other commercial expansion plans. These investments will bring important new tax revenues to our Town. Thanks to the incredible efforts of many people, the Town's massive Water and Sewer improvement projects, as part of the consent decree with the State, is on schedule. While during the construction it has been disruptive in the short -term, the long -term benefits will outweigh these short -term issues. A highlight of this past year was the grand opening of the new Bowditch Field and Cultural Center. Constructing it on- budget and on -time was a testament to the outstanding team effort. Bowditch has quickly become a source of community pride. 2010 Annual Town Report The Selectmen, working with the professional staff and State funded consultant, are seeking to become a Green Community. Selectmen have also worked closely with the Town Manager, Chief Financial Officer and other staff to manage our assets by selling off tax liens to bring much needed revenue. Last but certainly not least is the three year lawsuit with South Middlesex Opportunity Council (SMOC). This case has been settled out of court through a mediator. The Town now looks forward to developing a working relationship with SMOC. The Board would like to recognize the many individuals who work tirelessly and without fanfare who make Framingham such a rich, diverse and exceptional community. In closing, the Selectmen would like to thank those employees, volunteers, residents, visitors, workers and elected officials who "Take Pride in Framingham." Respectfully Submitted, Dennis Giombetti, Chairman Board of Selectmen Town Manager TW Memorial Building, Rm 121 1 508 - 532 -5400 1 town.manager@framinghamma.gov It is my pleasure to present this Report for calendar year 2010. Be advised that this Report is intended as a brief summary only. More comprehensive, detailed information on all Town activities is available elsewhere in this Annual Town Report. The year just completed included some organizational changes. Early in 2010, we were joined by new Assistant Town Manager David Williams. David joined our management team with considerable on -point experience, having most recently served as the Assistant Town Manager of Weston. Among David's duties /responsibilities are serving as Chief Procurement Officer. With the reorganizational approval of Town Meeting at its spring, 2010 annual meeting, and with the concurrence of the Board of Selectmen, I also appointed David the Director of Human Resources /Personnel for the Town. Near the end of 2010, long -time CDBG coordinator Sam Swisher retired. I was very pleased to appoint Ted Fields to this position. Ted brings with him a wealth of CDBG municipal experience. Of course, 2010 represented our second consecutive year of profound national economic recession, with attendant negative implications for local governments across America including Framingham. Fortunately, the pro- active "course corrections" in operating spending for Town departments undertaken in 2009 continued to serve us well during 2010 by reducing the Town -side General Government 2 Town of Framingham base of spending for local government services. Division and Department heads throughout the Town are to be commended for their collaborative support and management teamwork in maintaining the Town's basic local government services with fewer staff resources during this time of unprecedented length of national recession. Diligent efforts to more reasonably and effectively manage the Town's employee health insurance package continued. Framingham is one of only a couple of "Old Section 19" communities in the Commonwealth — dating back to Board of Selectmen action from 1993. This means that the Town is legally prohibited from bargaining health insurance benefits as part of total employee compensation. Further, it means that Town management is effectively prohibited from actively managing the Town's health insurance program. Instead, fundamental health insurance decisions are made by a Public Employee Committee (PEC) which includes representation and voting authority based upon the relative size of employee unions — the Framingham Teacher's Association as the largest union effectively controls final decisions of the PEC, as a super - majority is required under this law to affirm proposed health insurance changes. Recognizing that the Town of Framingham has the highest municipal health insurance costs as a percentage of General Fund in the Commonwealth (16 +% and moving rapidly toward 20 %), Town Meeting acted by an overwhelming majority at its fall Special Town Meeting to adopt a proposed Home Rule Amendment to be taken to the Legislature. This Home Rule Petition would effectively eliminate Public Employee Committee Coalition Bargaining and allow for employee health insurance to be collectively bargained with municipal employee unions as part of their overall compensation. This is the manner in which the vast majority of municipalities operate. Such a change is critical to reigning in the Town's unsustainable health insurance costs which are beginning to compromise the Town's ability 2010 Annual Town Report to continue basic services to residents. The Legislature is now considering this Home Rule Petition as HB 1847. Thanks to the wise capital budget support of Town Meeting, we were able to continue our critical program of enhanced stewardship for Town -owned buildings which had unfortunately suffered from considerably diminished maintenance support funding for at least the past decade. This included the completion of the main entryway steps reconstruction at the Town's landmark Memorial Building. We were also able to initiate the long- awaited handicapped access ramp construction on the Union Avenue side of Town Hall, which should be completed in the spring of 2011. The long - delayed exterior reconstruction of the (sadly, dilapidated) historic Maynard Building on the Town Centre Common was also completed. Work is underway in 2011 to proceed with a successor tenant for portions of this important Town building. We also began the important upgrade /reconstruction of the HVAC system in the Town's fire station headquarters on Western Avenue. This building has had system - related problems for many years, and this corrective action is critical to the proper operation of this important station. We were fortunate to receive some limited federal economic stimulus funds for energy efficiency purposes. These funds were devoted to a long- needed window replacement project for the Memorial Building. This historically sensitive window replacement began in the fall of 2010 and is anticipated to be completed in the spring of 2011. During 2010, we continued to work closely with officials at Genzyme in a continuation of the planned expansion of their campus complex within Tech Park. This involves the creation of a new manufacturing facility as well as considerably expanded research capacity for this world -class biotech company. We are also closely cooperating in the completion of a facilities plan for Tech Park which is intended to anticipate the continuing General Government 3 Town of Framingham expansion of technology firms within that important area. Critical infrastructure work, being overseen by the Department of Public Works, is continuing to completion on the utilities expansion /improvement project for Tech Park which was primarily funded with a State Life Sciences Grant. Over Columbus Day weekend, it was a great joy to attend the impressive opening ceremonies for the new, renovated Bowditch Field Complex! My compliments to Parks and Recreation Director Bob Merusi and the highly talented team of individuals who worked with Bob in bringing this great vision to reality! Congratulations to the Board of Selectmen, the Parks and Recreation Commission and Town Meeting for their steadfast support of this renovation! This enhancement to the Town's recreation/ cultural infrastructure represents an extraordinary addition to the quality of life in our community! Also regarding quality of life matters, at the instruction of the Board of Selectmen, following the conclusion of the 2010 Summer Concert Series on the Town Centre Common, we removed the performing stage from the Common. That stage was originally intended to be temporary, rather 2010 Annual Town Report than permanent — at one time removed after each concert season. The Board has approved a plan to fabricate a new, replacement stage which is "modular" and which will be erected just before the summer concerts begin each year and will be removed after the last concert of the season. This new stage will be erected on the Town Centre Common, on the Vernon Street side —with the newly reconstructed Maynard Building as a backdrop. Thank you to the Board of Selectmen for their leadership and support during 2010. I strongly commend my colleagues, the division and department heads comprising Framingham's excellent administrative team, for their extraordinary commitment and collaborative spirit in providing high quality local government services to our taxpayers during a continuing time of considerable fiscal distress. I thank Town Meeting for your communication, engagement and budget support for the many Town services which we are so privileged to deliver to fellow residents of the Town of Framingham. Respectfully Submitted, Julian M. Suso, Town Manager Town Clerk Memorial Building, Rm 105 1 508 - 532 -5521 1 townclerk @framinghamma.gov The Framingham Town Clerk's office is the largest joint clerk /election operation in Massachusetts. We are also one of the busiest Clerk's offices in the state. The presence of a birthing hospital, numerous nursing homes and assisted living facilities and a population of over 66,000 residents contribute to the substantial work load. Assistant Town Clerk Lisa Ferguson manages our daily operations and instructs and supervises staff. Lisa helped design the newly renovated vault where all the Town's vital records are stored. She has organized the area so that all records are easily accessible. The Town Clerk Department is responsible for creating and preserving the Town's vital records. The two administrators are Emily Black and Yelena Feldhouse. Their primary responsibilities are customer service and processing vital records. In 2010, we registered and issued 1429 birth certificates, 605 death certificates, 458 marriage licenses, 3485 dog licenses and 571 business certificates. Other responsibilities include: processing requests; issuing underground General Government 4 Town of Framingham storage tank permits; collecting fines for the Board of Health, Conservation Commission, Police Department, Building and Public Works Departments and Animal Control; maintaining all permanent Public Way Access Permits, Zoning Board of Appeals, Planning Board, and Historic Commission decisions and appeals; conducting genealogy searches; posting meetings and meeting minutes and issuing raffle permits. Our 2010 revenues were $236,740. Lauren DiGiandomenico is the Election Coordinator. The Election Department is responsible for: conducting elections and the Annual Town Census; maintaining the Town's voter /census data base and its related street listing; recording town meeting votes, filing Town Meeting original documents, preparing the Attorney General Bylaw submissions and posting the bylaws when they are approved. The Annual Town Meeting met over ten nights in May. Members voted on 36 articles and approved two resolutions. Three Special Town Meetings were held in 2010. One article was voted at the January 26` meeting, eight articles were voted over two nights at the May 12` meeting and members voted on 19 articles over five nights at the October 19 meeting. We conducted four elections in 2010. On January 19 there was a 58% turnout for the Special State Election for US Senator in Congress. Only 12% voted in the Town Election on April 12 and 19% in the State Primary on September 14` The turnout for the November 2nd State Election was 57 %. Changes to Campaign Finance laws and the Open Meeting Law became effective in July 2010. Municipalities with websites are now required to post financial statements of candidates with more than $1000 of activity within a reporting period on the website. Meeting postings with agendas must also be available on the Town website at all times. 2010 Annual Town Report I am grateful to Town Manager Julian Suso and his Division Heads, DPW Director Peter Sellers and Community and Economic Development Director Alison Steinfeld for providing staff to assist with the Town's participation in US Census activities. Miekele Neves, C &ED administrator coordinated meetings and correspondence. Alexis Silver, Human Services Coordinator, was instrumental in working with landlords to assist in securing an accurate population count. Geoff Kovar, Geographic Information Systems specialist is assisting with our reprecincting efforts. The Board of Selectmen, Town Officials and Town Meeting members provide consistent support to this office; it is a genuine pleasure to work with them and with all those who participate in our government. Town employees are always professional, knowledgeable and willing to help. We are grateful to Doug Goddard, Capital Projects Manager for supervising the renovation of our vault, Carly Premo Melo and the Technology Services staff for automating many of our operations and Jim Egan and the Building Services staff for facilitating elections. We are not charged to use Keefe Tech or St. Tarcisius Parish Center as polling locations; nor are we charged for the use of St. Stephen's parking lot on election days. Our poll workers continue to work long days to ensure that the public is well served when they vote. Through the Senior Tax Relief Program, we were fortunate to have the help of Chet Fenno and Alexandra Ross. Finally and most importantly I thank and commend my small, dedicated staff for their hard work, professionalism and knowledgeable, friendly attitudes when dealing with the public. They exemplify the Town's commitment to excellent customer service.

II. 2010 Report on Status of Framingham Cases In accordance with Art. II. Sections 5.8 and 1.5 of the General Bylaws, below is a list of the Framingham cases that were active in 2010. I have included the case name, type of case, and a brief description of the case with the 2010 activities summarized in the last column on the right. This section is divided into two parts. Part A summarizes cases are handled by this office, and Part B summarizes cases handled by special counsel or insurance counsel. General Government 29 Town of Framingham A. OFFICE OF TOWN COUNSEL CASES 2010 Annual Town Report MATTER TYPE 2008 STATUS /DISPOSITION Boston Properties Contract This case concerns a suit by Boston Properties to recover $175,000 Limited Partnership V. in funds from a failed development near Mass Pike Exit 12. Under a Framingham 1999 development covenant executed by Boston Properties, it agreed to provide $350,000 to the Town provided that certain contingencies occurred, namely the issuance of certain permits for the development. The development failed and Boston Properties is now seeking this money back, claiming the contingencies never occurred. The dispute centers on whether the contingencies occurred or did not occur. The Town's position is that the contingencies occurred based on certain site preparation and demolition that occurred on the property, as well as the moving of the historic Rugg -Gates House. Presently the Town is awaiting discovery responses and plans to depose Boston Properties. The parties will continue with their discovery efforts through 2011 Calvao, Duarte and all Fair Labor This action was filed against the Town in 2005 by approximately 100 others similarly Standards Act Framingham patrol officers alleging that the Town failed to situated v. Town of Statutory Claim appropriately compute and pay overtime wages as required by the Framingham Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 29 U.S.C. ��201 -219. The Town contends that it complied with the FLSA pursuant to payments made to the officers under the terms of the parties' collective bargaining agreement. An important issue in this case is the proper work period to be used in calculating required overtime sums. The Town contends that at all relevant times it had an established 24 -day work period whereby the officers were entitled to FLSA overtime only for time worked in excess of 147 hours over a 24 -day work period, in accordance with a formula set forth under applicable federal Regulations. The officers have argued that the operative threshold should be 40 hours within a given week, such that they would be entitled to overtime pay for all hours worked in excess of 40 each week. The Town moved for summary judgment on this key issue early in 2008. On July 2, 2008, the Court issued a written decision which sided with the Town and found that the Town had effectively established a 24 -day work period under the FLSA in 1986. Following the Court's decision, the parties entered a stipulation of judgment whereby the Town would not be liable to the officers, subject to the officers' right to appeal the Court's determination that the Town established a 24 -day work period under 29 U.S.C. � 207(k) to the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. The First Circuit issued a decision affirming the District Court's ruling on March 17, 2010. Carney v. Town of Wetlands This matter involves the Conservation Commission's efforts to Framingham enforce wetlands violations committed by William Carney of 32 Parker Road. The Commission found that Mr. Carney had clear cut General Government 30 Town of Framingham 2010 Annual Town Report General Government 31 numerous trees and dumped brush within wetlands resource area located on 28 Parker Road, 30 Parker Road, and 32 Parker Road. The Commission issued an enforcement order on April 2, 2008 and an amended enforcement order on June 4, 2008. Mr. Carney appealed the enforcement order(s) to the Superior Court under the certiorari statute, G.L. c. 249, � 4. The Superior Court entered judgment in the Town's favor as to all claims, and the plaintiff has appealed this judgment to the Massachusetts Appeals Court. The Town will be preparing and filing an appellee brief during the winter of 2011, and expects that the Court will schedule an oral argument on the parties' briefs in the sp ring of 2011. CSE Framingham This case matter involves a challenge by CSE, the current developer LLC v. Town of of the Danforth PUD (successor to Pulte Homes and before Pulte, Framingham National Development of New England), of the Conservation Commission's January 6, 2010 vote to issue an order of conditions denying CSE's application for a notice of intent for an order of conditions to perform certain work in the wetlands area in connection with its proposed development project located at Riverpath Drive. In its denial order, the Commission found that CSE had failed to file minimum fundamental information and materials necessary to enable the Commission to approve an order of conditions. CSE filed a motion for judgment on the pleadings under Superior Court Standing Order 1 -96, which governs certiorari cases under G.L. c. 249, � 4, such as this one. The Town filed an opposition to CSE's motion. The Court has scheduled a hearing in this matter for September 22, 2011. Fafard Real Estate Land Use This case arises from a request from Fafard Real Estate and Development v. Development Corporation, the developer of the Belport Farms Framingham Subdivision, that the Town accepts DiTullio Drive as a public way, along with related infrastructure (including a sewer pump station that services the subdivision) and release a bond in the amount of $25,000. The Town contends, among other things, that it has no obligation to take control of and accept responsibility for operation and maintenance of infrastructure constructed by a private developer in connection with the 1993 subdivision approval decision by the Planning Board and, further, that Fafard would not be entitled to such an outcome in any event insofar as it has failed to satisfy prerequisites to such acceptance. Fafard commenced an action against the Town in the Land Court in June, 2010. Following Fafard's filing of three separate amendments to its complaint, the Town filed a motion to transfer the case to Superior Court or, in the alternative, to dismiss Fafard's third amended complaint based on passage of the statute of limitations. We also were required to file a motion for preliminary injunction based on Fafard's threat to stop paying the utility bills for the p umping station, thus risking substantial environmental impacts and General Government 31 Town of Framingham 2010 Annual Town Report General Government 32 property damages from sanitary sewage overflows if this were to occur. The Land Court has scheduled hearings on the motion for preliminary injunction and motion to dismiss for May, 2011. The parties recently participated in mediation before Judge Rudolph Kass of the REBA Dispute Resolution Center. If the case is not resolved through mediation, we anticipate that this litigation will require discovery and motion practice in 2011. Framingham Labor This matter involves a petition filed in August, 2010 by the Firefighters (Local Framingham Firefighters' bargaining unit, Local 1652, to have the 1652) v. Town of Joint Labor and Management Committee exercise jurisdiction over Framingham ULMC) the parties' negotiation for a new collective bargaining agreement. The JLMC is a state body that intervenes in labor negotiations between municipalities and police and fire labor organizations to attempt to resolve bargaining impasses through means such as arbitration or mediation. Local 1652 asserts that the parties have reached an impasse in negotiations with regard to wages, clothing, step raises, and placing stipend funds into the firefighters' base salaries. The Town agreed to submit to the JLMC's jurisdiction in this matter. Local 1652 and the Town recently participated in one unsuccessful mediation session before Brian Harrington and the JLMC voted to exercise jurisdiction for formal fact finding and arbitration. Framingham Police Labor This matter involves a petition filed in August, 2010 by the Officers Union v. Framingham Police Officers union to ask the Joint Labor and Town of Framingham Management Committee exercise jurisdiction over the parties' ULMC) negotiation for a new collective bargaining agreement. Three mediation sessions before JLMC Mediator Brian Harrington did not yield a settlement and the parties will proceed to formal fact finding arbitration before the JLMC. Framingham Police Labor The Framingham Police Officers Union (FPOU) filed this unfair Officers Union labor practice charge with the Massachusetts Labor Relations Framingham Police Commission, now the Division of Labor Resources (DLR), Officers Union v. following the Town's issuance of correspondence to the FPOU in Town of Framingham April of 2007 reaffirming the existence of the Town's 24 -day work (24 -day work period period pursuant to 29 USC 207(k) of the Fair Labor Standards Act. ULP) The FPOU's charge alleged that the Town's correspondence regarding the existence of the 24 -day work period effected a change in working conditions that required bargaining. Following the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit's order affirming summary judgment in the Town's favor in Calvao, et al. v. Town of Framingham the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts entered a Consent Judgment confirming the validity of the Town's 24 -day work period for Framingham patrol officers under 29 U.S.C. � 207(k). Notwithstanding the Consent Judgment and the First Circuit decision that legally affirmed the 24 -day work p eriod at issue in this case, the Commonwealth Employment General Government 32 Town of Framingham 2010 Annual Town Report General Government 33 Relations Board (CERB) issued a Complaint of Prohibited Practice alleging that the Town improperly failed to bargain under state law in connection with the Town's implementation of its 24 -day work period. The CERB issued an amended complaint following the First Circuit's ruling. Thereafter the Town moved for an order from the District Court seeking to enforce the terms of the Consent Judgment establishing a 24 -day work period under the FLSA. The District Court issued a decision on December 23, 2010 denying the Town's motion. To protect its 24 -day work period and avoid potential major adverse impact to pay further FLSA overtime to the patrolmen based on an ordinary 40 hour work week, the Town will oppose the Complaint before CERB in 2011, including defending the Town's position at an administrative trial that has yet to be scheduled. FPOU E. Rivera Sick Labor In 2007 Patrolman Eduardo Rivera filed a demand for arbitration Leave Arbitration and appealing a disciplinary suspension. The Town filed an action in Declaratory Judgment Middlesex Superior Court to enjoin the arbitration on the grounds Action that the CBA expressly provides that the proper forum to appeal disciplinary decisions is the Civil Service Commission rather than arbitration. After the Superior Court granted the Town's motion for a preliminary injunction to enjoin the arbitration, the FPOU filed a motion for summary judgment on August 18, 2009. The Town opposed this motion and accompanied its opposition with its own cross - motion for summary judgment. On February 5, 2010, the Superior Court issued an order denying the FPOU's motion for summary judgment and allowing the Town's cross - motion. The FPOU has appealed the Superior Court's order to the Massachusetts Appeals Court. Briefs will be filed shortly and we expect to receive a decision sometime in calendar year 2011. Framingham Police Labor The Framingham Police Officers Union filed this complaint of Officers Union v. prohibited management practice charge on June 26, 2009, alleging Town of Framingham that the Town committed an unfair management practice by (Moore and Patriarca) allegedly requiring certain patrol officers to be interviewed without representation in connection with an internal affairs investigation concerning a different officer. The parties entered a settlement agreement in December of 2010 that fully resolved this matter. This matter is now closed. Framingham Public Labor This matter concerns the appeal of an arbitration decision issued in Employee Committee favor of the PEC over the Town's plan to implement different health insurance plans for new employees after January 1, 2010. The arbitration occurred in April and May 2010 and a decision in favor of the PEC was issued in August 2010. The Superior Court recently denied the Town's motion to vacate the arbitration award and allowed the PEC's motion to confirm the arbitration award. The General Government 33 Town of Framingham 2010 Annual Town Report General Government 34 Board of Selectmen recently authorized an appeal of the Superior Court decision, which the Town has filed. Gregory Reardon Labor This matter concerns a grievance on behalf of Police Officer Arbitration Gregory Reardon over the transmission of a department -wide email. An arbitration was held in November, 2010, after which the arbitrator issued a decision resolving this matter. This matter is now closed. Hess v. Zoning Board Zoning Hess Corporation filed an appeal in February of 2009 of a decision of Appeals by the Zoning Board of Appeals denying it a special permit modification for its gas station located at 272 Hollis Street. The Land Court held a trial in this matter on June 23, 2010. Following trial the parties filed post -trial briefs. (This is the second trial held in Hess Corporation's ongoing efforts to obtain permitting for 272 Hollis Street. The ZBA's denial of a special permit for this location was upheld at a trial held in 2006.) The Land Court recently issued a decision upholding the Zoning Board of Appeals decision to deny a special permit for the addition of a convenience store to the gas station Levasseur v. Town of Wetlands This matter arises out of the Conservation Commission's attempt to Framingham enforce wetlands violations at property owned by plaintiffs Roger Conservation and Dawn Levasseur at 49 Gates Street (the "Property "). The Commission plaintiffs purchased the Property on or about December 12, 2008 from Leonidas and Elaine Exarchos. After conducting a review, the Commission concluded that the Property contains wetlands areas that have been disturbed, including by grass and fencing that was installed in connection with backyard expansion activities. The Levasseurs have alleged that the violations were committed by the Exharchoses or other prior owner(s) of the property. The Commission first voted to issue an enforcement order on December 17, 2008, and issued a subsequent enforcement order (the "Enforcement Order ") on January 7, 2009. The Levasseurs appealed the Enforcement Order to the Superior Court under the certiorari statute, G.L. c. 249, � 4. Thereafter, on June 8, 2010, the plaintiffs added a number of defendants to lawsuit, including the Exarchoses, and two attorneys involved in the closing. In their answer, the Exarchoses included a cross -claim against the Town and the Framingham Conservation Commission for Misrepresentation, Negligent Misrepresentation, Negligence, Fraud and Malicious Prosecution /Abuse of Process. The Cross -claim seeks monetary damages against the Town and the Commission in the amount of over $1,100,000, along with attorney's fees. The plaintiffs filed a motion for judgment on the pleadings and the Court held a hearing on the motion on January 11, 2011. On March 7, 2011, the Court issued an order denying the plaintiffs' motion for judgment on the pleadings and affirming the Enforcement Order General Government 34 Town of Framingham 2010 Annual Town Report General Government 35 issued by the Commission. The parties have not yet commenced discovery practice with regard to the Exarchoses counterclaim and cross - claim. Loughman v. Town of This matter arose in May of 2010 when Police Chief Steven Carl Framingham decided to "bypass" the Appellant, Michael Loughman, for a vacant police lieutenant position and instead promote Robert Downing. Mr. Loughman filed a bypass appeal with the Civil Service Commission on June 7, 2010 seeking to challenge the Bypas Decision. Subsequently Mr. Loughman filed a complaint with the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination alleging that his bypass resulted from age discrimination. The parties entered a settlement agreement in December of 2010 fully resolving all claims in this matter. This matter is now closed. Paulini Loam, LLC v. Zoning This is the first of the Paulini lawsuits, and it is has been stayed by Town of Framingham the court pending the outcome of the third lawsuit, which will be ZBA Land Court described below. In December of 2005, the Zoning Board of Misc. Case No. Appeals denied Paulini Loam's application for a special permit to 318083 KCL construct a concrete hatching plant at the Property. At the time of the initial application, the property was zoned General Manufacturing. Paulini claimed that the concrete hatching plant was allowed under Section IILG.La of the Zoning Bylaw, which allows "manufacturing of any description utilizing processes free from neighborhood disturbing odors and /or other agencies" in the General Manufacturing district. The Building Commissioner had ruled that the proposed use required a special permit under Section III.G.2 as a use "which would be offensive because of injurious or obnoxious noise, vibration, smoke, gas, fumes, odors, dust or other objectionable features...." Paulini filed this appeal seeking to overturn the ZBA's denial of the special permit, and to obtain a declaration from the Court that the proposed plant did not require a special permit. There has been extensive discovery, including depositions, in this case, but as noted above it has been stayed by the Court for some time. Paulini Loam LLC v. Zoning This case has also been stayed by the Land Court. In December of Zoning Board of 2005, a Special Town Meeting approved two amendments to the Appeals of the Town Zoning By -law, one of which changed the zoning designation of the of Framingham, et al, area to Office Professional, such that the proposed use became Land Court Misc. prohibited and could not be authorized even through a special Case No. 325212 KCL permit. The second amendment changed the procedures and thresholds for site plan review. Paulini filed this second lawsuit, this time naming the town as defendant, challenging the validity of the Zoning By -law amendments. In the meantime, Paulini had filed a definitive subdivision plan for the Property, which was approved by the Planning Board, thereby "freezing" the zoning of the Property for 8 years from the date the subdivision plan was approved. As a result, the Property is still governed by the General Manufacturing zoning as it existed in 2005. We filed a motion for summa General Government 35 Town of Framingham 2010 Annual Town Report General Government 36 judgment on behalf of the Town in this case, arguing that the two amendments are valid as a matter of law. That motion is still pending at the Land Court Paulini Loam LLC v. Zoning This case represents the most recent appeal filed by Paulini Loam, Board of Appeals LLC, appealing the Board's decision to uphold the Building Land Court Misc. Commissioner's denial of a building permit for the proposed Case No. 09 MISC concrete manufacturing plant. Paulini's complaint includes two 401214 KCL counts: the first is an appeal under G.L. c. 40A �17 of the Board's decision, and the second is a request for a declaratory judgment that the proposed use of the site for a concrete manufacturing facility is allowed by right under the Zoning Bylaw. The Board filed a motion for summary judgment on the grounds that it is not disputed that the plans submitted to the Building Commissioner showed a structure, within the meaning of the Zoning Bylaw, within a required setback. Since this is a violation of the Zoning Bylaw, and would require a variance from the Board of Appeals, the Town contends that this reason alone is sufficient to uphold the Board's decision, without the need for the court to review whether the denial of the building permit was also justified because the proposed use requires a special permit. Paulini also requested a declaratory judgment from the court under G.L. c. 240 �14A that the proposed use was a use allowed by right and did not require a special permit from the Board of Appeals. The Town argues in response that this count of the complaint should be dismissed because it is simply a duplication of the chapter 40A section 17 appeal and, in any event, Paulini already has a request for a declaratory judgment in its earlier appeal, and therefore this count was barred by that prior pending action. The court held a hearing on the Board's motion for summary judgment on June 1, 2010. The court took the matter under advisement and has not yet issued a decision. Revoli Construction Construction This is an action against the Town seeking recovery of Co., Inc. v. Town of allegedly uncompensated work for loaming and seeding Framingham which the plaintiff, Revoli Construction Co., purports to have completed in connection with the Town's construction of the Doeskin Water Betterment Project (the "Project "). The parties recently reached a resolution of this case and this matter is concluded. Spagnuolo v. This matter involves a certiorari appeal under G.L. c. 249, � 4 by the Framingham plaintiff, Gerard Spagnuolo, of the Conservation Commission's Conservation issuance of an enforcement order on or about December 2, 2009, as Commission amended by the Commission pursuant to a vote conducted on January 6, 2010. The Commission found that the plaintiff had conducted various unpermitted activities on property located at 545 Edgell Road within a wetlands resource area and /or buffer zone in violation of the Wetlands Protection Bylaw and the Wetlands Protection Act. The unpermitted activities that the Commission found to have been undertaken include, among other things, General Government 36 Town of Framingham 2010 Annual Town Report General Government 37 significant cutting, filling, and grading above and within a steep embankment (resulting in a deposit of boulders and debris in the wetlands), stockpiling of fill and sediment surrounding several mature trees, and failure to install erosion controls. After the plaintiff filed this case in the Land Court, the Commission removed this case to the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts because the plaintiffs Complaint and Amended Complaint recited a series of alleged violations of the federal and state constitution. On February 8, 2011, the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts issued an order finding that there were no federal claims in this matter and remanding the case to the Land Court. The parties now will proceed to engage in motion for judgment on the pleadings practice under Land Court Standing Order 1 -04. Tarr v. Town of Property This was a consolidated action involving: 1) an action appealing a Framingham vote of the Board of Selectmen taken on October 21, 2008 to remove certain public shade trees located adjacent to 13 Bradford Road; and 2) an action against the Town alleging that the Town's removal of the underlying trees constituted an unlawful taking. The parties reached a settlement of this matter in December of 2010, thereby terminating both actions in full resolution of this matter. This matter is now closed. T- Mobile Northeast, Zoning /Land This case involves an appeal by T- Mobile of the ZBA's July 13, 2010 LLC v. Town of Use decision denying T- Mobiles application for use and dimensional Framingham variances and a special permit in connection with T- Mobile's planned construction and installation, operation and maintenance of a proposed wireless communications facility on property leased by T- Mobile located at 300 Pleasant Street (the Decision). T- Mobile alleges that the Decision was not supported by substantial evidence and constituted an effective prohibition of wireless communications services in violation of � 704 of the Federal Telecommunications Act of 1996, 47 U.S.C. � 332(c) ( "TCA "). Specifically, T- Mobile alleges, among other things, that the ZBA ignored expert testimony and evidence concerning T- Mobile's alleged significant gap in its coverage network within the Town, ignored uncontroverted testimony and evidence concerning the purported lack of feasible alternatives available to T- Mobile to rectify its significant gap in network coverage and failed to consider whether the need to close a significant gap in coverage was necessary to avoid an effective prohibition of personal wireless services. The ZBA and the Town disputes T- Mobile's position. Through 2011 the parties will engage in discovery practice (including discovery requests, responses and depositions of expert witnesses) and the potential filing of dispositive motions. General Government 37 Town of Framingham 2010 Annual Town Report Town of Framingham Contract This matter concerns a suit against the owner /operator of the Natick v. Natick Mall, LLC Employment Collection over unpaid sewer charges from 1995 through 2007, Framingham totaling nearly $700,000, as determined by a recent audit of out of town sewer accounts. The Natick Collection has asserted counterclaims alleging that the out of town rates they were charged violated statutory provisions for rate - setting requiring uniform rates, and that the Town's claims are unconstitutional in that they seek a "tax" on the Natick Collection outside of Framingham's local powers afforded to it by the legislature. Natick Collection recently also moved for summary judgment, arguing that the claims for unpaid sewer charges prior to November of 2004 are barred by the Grassia v. Town of Civil Rights statute of limitations. The Town is in the process of obtaining Framingham written discovery from Natick Collection and opposing its motion for partial summary judgment VHS Acquisition No. Zoning This case involved the Metrowest Medical Center's appeal of the 9 v.

In early 2008, SMOC also filed a lawsuit in Middlesex Superior Court alleging that the Town failed to produce public records pursuant to G.L. c. 66, � 10. The parties settled both cases in October of 2010 without admission of liability, thereby officially terminating all lawsuits. Both matters are now closed. General Government 39 Town of Framingham 2010 Annual Town Report Tang v. Town of Constitutional This is an action against the Town by a state prison inmate alleging, Framingham Law among other things, unlawful arrest, conspiracy and assault and battery.

Mr. Tang subsequently filed two other lawsuits against the Town in Middlesex Superior Court and these two actions remain pending. III. Budgetary Overview As in past years, I would like to conclude this report with a brief discussion of budgeting and legal expenses. In 2010, this office continued its positive track record of procuring new revenue for the General Fund or helping to avoid the imposition of additional costs to the Town. The services provided by the Office of the Town Counsel have resulted in monetary benefits to the Town that has resulted in direct revenue, mitigation and avoided expenses three to four times greater than the Town's FY 2010 appropriation of $623,000. Below is a chart summarizing the revenue, mitigation and avoided expenses achieved in FY 2010 by the efforts of the Office of Town Counsel working with other departments, boards or commissions, or through the substantial assistance of this office. A. FY 2010 Revenue, Mitigation and Avoided Expenses Matter: Descri tion: Payments Received Payments received in FY2010 for sewage transport under the from Ashland for February 13, 2004 Decision issued by the Department of sewage transport and Telecommunications and Energy, and pursuant to the January 1, litigation settlement 2007 IMA between Ashland and Framingham. This represents a in FY 2010 more than 200 -fold increase over what Framingham received $926,968.91 from 1964 -2003 under the 1963 Intermunicipal Agreement with (Revenue) Ashland ($5500 per year). Pelham Apartments By virtue of a prior year's favorable summary judgment ruling achieved and Framingham in the Pelham litigation, the Town was able to cease trash collection at Housing Authority the 550 units at the Pelham Apartments, which results in avoided Trash Collection expenses estimated at more than $100,000 per year. By virtue of the $300,000 Pelham ruling, the Town also was able to cease trash collection at General Government 40 Town of Framingham 2010 Annual Town Report (Avoided Expense) approximately 1,000 units owned by the Framingham Housing Authority, thus realizing savings of approximately an additional estimated $200,000 per year. These savings amount to approximately $300,000 per year on an annual recurring basis. Calvao, et al. v. Town As a result of the United States Court of Appeals for the First of Framingham Circuit's decision affirming the District Court's decision allowing $1,500,000 the Town's Motion for Summary Judgment with respect to the (Avoided Expense) Town's establishment of a 24 -day work period under 29 U.S.C. 207(k), the Town has avoided liability to date for approximately $1,500,000 in damages, in view of the federal law that often allows for double damages and attorney's fees to be assessed against parties found to have violated the Fair Labor Standards Act. Additionally, the Town has to date avoided the need to pay FLSA overtime to officers who work more than 40 hours per week (CBA overtime is paid), thus saving the Town approximately $150,000 per year on an annual basis. TOTAL FY 2010 1 $2,726,968.91 While we certainly cannot promise the revenue, mitigation and avoided expenses achieved in FY 2010 on an ongoing basis in the future, we will continue to exercise creativity, diligence, and apply the highest legal skills to address the litigation that does arise as we advocate on behalf of the best interests of the Board of Selectmen and the taxpayers of the Town of Framingham. CONCLUSION In closing, we wish to thank the Board of Selectmen and the residents of the Town for the opportunity to serve as your Town Counsel. Christopher J. Petrini Petrini & Associates, P.C.

Our primary function is the care and maintenance of Town buildings under the jurisdiction of the Town Manager. I would like to acknowledge at this time my heartfelt thanks to my assistant Walter Premo who will be retiring this June and congratulate him on 29 years of exemplary service to the Town of Framingham. Over the past few years budget cuts have reduced our staff to a point of looking at alternate ways of conducting our business. This has resulted in the custodial privatization of cleaning services at the Callahan Senior Center for a trial period. The success of this program may lead to more efficient use of town funds in many departments. The Memorial Building Capital Project Window Replacement Program under the authority of our Capital Program Manager, Doug Goddard is ongoing and will be completed by this summer. This window replacement has been a long time coming and we applaud Doug for his aggressive approach and spear - heading this project to completion.

The Town must still live within its means, so budgets are reduced, services are reduced or limited and positions are cut. The Town received the benefit of a bond rating upgrade to Aa2 when Moody's rating agency re- tooled municipal bond ratings. The adoption of the increase in local room tax of 2% and a new local meals tax of .25% allowed the Town to add $1.4 million to the Stabilization fund in FYI 1. If this plan is followed through FY14, the Town will have funded the Stabilization Fund to its policy level of 5% of the total budget. The FYI I Capital Budget continued necessary investment in Town assets while minimizing impact on operating revenues. Continued responsible financial management is critical to the forward progress of the Town. In 2010, the Finance Division assumed the additional duty of processing the School Department payroll; specifically under the supervision of the Town Accountant. The consolidation of this function is intended to provide greater adherence to laws, regulations and rules of accounting and finance as well as enhanced efficiency in processing.

Respectfully Submitted, Mary Ellen Kelley, CFO Town Accountant VW Memorial Building, Rm 205 1508-532-5410 1 town .accountant @framinghamma.gov The Office of the Town Accountant is responsible for insuring that all expenditures of the Town conform to the requirements of Massachusetts General Laws, Town Meeting appropriations and grantors, and do not exceed Town Meeting appropriations or grant authorizations. The Office also accounts for all financial transactions of the Town - receipts and expenditures — in conformance with generally accepted accounting principles and the Uniform Municipal Accounting System promulgated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts' Department of Revenue. It then makes this accounting information available to (1) the Town's municipal program managers to facilitate their management of program budgets, (2) independent auditors who must opine on the financial condition of the Town; (3) state and federal agencies for use in generating financial information for program and policy development, and, (4) credit rating agencies for their use in assessing the Town's fiscal stability and creditworthiness and Residents. Significant activities of the Accounting Office include the submission of required financial reports, reconciliation of revenue and expenditure accounts, cash, and accounts receivable as well as auditing all accounts payable invoices for accuracy prior to payment. At the October 27, 2009 the Town's payroll function was transferred from Human Resources Director to the Chief Financial Officer and subsequently to the Town Accountant's Office. Starting in July of 2010, the School's Payroll department was also placed under the direction of the Chief Financial Officer. The June 30, 2010 (FYI 0) balance sheet was submitted to the DOR on October 7 2010, for certification of available funds. On November 4, 2010 the DOR certified the following amounts as available for appropriation: General Fund Free Cash: $2,070,490 Sewer Enterprise Fund Retained Earnings: $2,078,446, Water Enterprise Fund Retained Earnings $3,234,209. These available funds represent unrestricted surpluses that are available for appropriation by Town Meeting. They are generated from positive operating results in relation to the budget; that is, they are derived from annual receipts in excess of budget estimates and expenditures less than the appropriations authorized by Town Meeting. For Fiscal Year 2010, the Department processed over 15,000 purchase orders, reviewed over 44,000 invoices and issued over 19,500 accounts payable checks.

The Treasurer/ Collector's office continues to provide customer service and essential municipal services. As always, I am indebted to my staff for the first -class job they do on my behalf as well as the Town of Framingham. Collection amounts and percentages were as follows: Real estate taxes collected were $141,249,692.48 (98.45 %), and Personal Property taxes were $8,961,714.63 (98.60 %). Excise Taxes collected were $4,865,832.18 (77.02 %). Excise tax is collected on a calendar -year basis, which is reflected in the lower collection percentage. Tax Title collections were $2,682,493.64 including interest and penalties. We have continued to work hard on delinquent taxes in every area and recently foreclosed on a property and will schedule an auction soon. Earning on general fund investments for the year totaling $375,063.87 were slightly above budget. We continue to monitor the bank rates to maximize our earnings. The Town's Bond Rating increased from Al to Aa2 with a Challenging Outlook in FY 11 from Moody's. The future will hold a challenge to maintain it but the goal is to work to that end. We need to improve our fund balances to help offset those areas that we have little control, such as per capita income levels. We issued three Bond Anticipation Notes in 2010, awarded to Eastern bank in the amount of $40,944,773 with a premium of $444,660.23 and net interest cost of .411%. $2,545,000, with a premium of $8,168.67, net interest cost of .529 %, and $385,000 with a coupon rate of 1.25. Additionally, we borrowed $13,041,000 in general obligation bonds for multiple projects awarded to Fidelity Capital Markets, at a rate of 3.18% among the several bidders. The bid included a premium of $503,361.65. This was the most competitive rate in the face of stable Federal Fund rates. Additionally, the Town issued interim loans totaling $50,207,880 through the Massachusetts Water Pollution Abatement Trust at net interest cost of .26% for various sewer improvements projects. This department has worked diligently to meet the requirements of the laws, the challenges of the technology advances, and the Town's customer service policy. We treat taxpayers with respect while accepting their payments, answering their questions regarding process, and solving their problems as quickly and efficiently as possible. Per Town By -Law, I am reporting the following information regarding authorized debt schedules. The first schedule shows what is authorized and un- issued as of June 30, 2010. The second schedule shows the debt issued and outstanding during Fiscal Year 2010. Respectfully submitted, Stephen W.

Rm 1011508-532-5415 1 assessing @framinghamma.gov The Board of Assessors' annual report for calendar year 2010 with statistics for Fiscal Year 2010 is as follows: Because of the values established in Fiscal Year 2010, we received 527 abatement applications. These applications represented 2.57% of the total tax bills issued for Fiscal Year 2010. In Fiscal Year 2011 the residential class contributed $23.6 million dollars in new value. This growth was attributed to new homes completed in 2010 as well as other improvements made to the residential inventory during 2010. Commercial, Industrial and Personal Property growth added $38.3. Values were lowered for Fiscal Year 2011 due to declining values indicated by sales and market data analyzed. The average value for a single - family home was $324,214 from $342,887 or 5.4 %.

Emergency management is the preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery of both naturally occurring events like blizzards, ice storms, hurricanes, flooding or earthquakes as well as any man made disasters such as chemical spills, fires, transportation events and acts of terrorism. Framingham Emergency Management has worked extensively under its current structure to create planning groups, exercise response activities, secure funding from grants and state and federal sources and expand participation in this municipal function. In September 2010 FrEMA in concert with Framingham department of public 2010 works and the Northeast Homeland Security Regional Advisory Council opened up an emergency equipment cache located at Framingham DPW. This cache is one of only three in the State and will be used to disperse equipment and supplies during emergencies. FrEMA, in conjunction with state and federal authorities, prepares, administers and implements Framingham's CEMP (Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan) as well as the federal mandated NIMCAST. In 2007 the entire CEMP was rewritten and printed; this is the first time since 1997. The FrEMA also implemented a mass notification system in 2007. This system (Connect CTY) allows public safety officials to notify residents and businesses in Framingham in a matter of minutes, and enables us to give pertinent information and instruction. In 2010 the system made 39 calls contacting 408,515 residences and businesses. A survey was conducted with the system in December of 2007 and 95.4 % of respondents stated they felt safer with the system in place. In 2010 Framingham also joined five other communities (Ashland, Natick, Holliston, Hopkinton and Sherborn) to form the MetroWest Regional Emergency Planning Committee. Framingham will continue to be a leader in the ever increasing role of emergency management in a post 911 era, roles and responsibilities are increasing and the Town will need to recognize the value of emergency preparedness. Crime Statistics The department is committed to using its resources efficiently and effectively. The use of crime and statistical analysis enables us to identify emerging crime trends, track incident locations and identify and implement preventative, educational, intervention, or enforcement strategies.

MacKenzie Director of Animal Control Public Safety & Health 91 Town of Framingham Annual Report Framingham Auxiliary Police One William Welch Way The 20 dedicated men and women of the Framingham Auxiliary Police completed another outstanding year of service for the community. For the past 68 years, the Auxiliary Police have been an active and vital component of the Police Department. The Auxiliary Police, under the guidance of Auxiliary Captain Marc Spigel, have a well defined training program in which officers attend an academy for reserve police officers; and are trained in first responder first aid and CPR /AED. Annually the Auxiliary Officers keep their skills and certification current with field and in- service training. The result is a professional Auxiliary Police Organization that stands ready to assist this department. 2010 During the year, the Auxiliary Officers volunteer countless hours of their time to help make Framingham a better place to live and work. You can see some of their volunteer efforts in action at community events such as Concerts on the Green, charitable road races, and child safety programs. As part of the Framingham Emergency Management Agency, Auxiliary Police Officers provide assistance at the Emergency Operations Center and emergency shelters as needed, and are trained in the National Incident Management System. The Framingham Auxiliary Police were again honored this year with a Presidential Volunteer Service Award for their efforts in Framingham.

Norton Administration: Lieutenant Dean Hillman The Framingham Fire Department provides Fire, Rescue and Emergency Medical Services to those who live, work and travel through the community. Calendar year 2010 was a busy and exciting year for the Framingham Fire Department with our department responding to just fewer then 10,000 9 -1 -1 calls, a four percent increase over 2009. In addition to the 9 -1 -1 emergency responses, the department handled an additional 8,400 calls for non - emergent assistance. Public Safety & Health 93 Firefighter Kevin Cairney Firefighter Kevin Dorsey Firefighter David Carroll Town of Framingham Annual Report Highlights in Review: April 10, 2010 was a cool spring morning which would soon turn into a most horrific day for the departments we nearly lost four firefighters in a roll -over accident that was the result of a catastrophic mechanical failure of the Fire Engine. Miraculously, the firefighters involved in this accident were able to survive with non -life threatening injuries. A New Release Truck was placed in service in July of 2010. This specialized rescue vehicle was designed by the members of the department and meets the specific needs of the community. It is the first new rescue truck purchased by the department in 19 years. Also in July, a new Deputy Chiefs vehicle was placed in service. This vehicle replaced a five year old vehicle which had over 100,000 miles on it. In August, a new Engine was placed in service replacing the engine that was destroyed in the April accident. In order to expedite the replacement process, we utilized a new purchasing program of which Framingham was the first community to take delivery of fire apparatus using the new collaborative purchasing program established between the Fire Chiefs Association of Massachusetts and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council. In September, Probationary Firefighters Michael Nianchi, Jose Rubio and William Petro Jr. graduated from the Training Academy. We enhanced our communications capabilities with a communications upgrade which included new dispatch computers for all front line apparatus, fire prevention and command staff. 2010 We were successful in obtaining some outside funding through grant awards from the Executive Office of Public Safety and Massachusetts Department of Fire Safety and will continue to seek additional outside revenue sources and grants. Some of these grants are listed below. SAFE - Student Awareness of Fire Educations: $6,300 public safety education EOPS Staffing Grant: $89,000; paid the salaries of two firefighters for one year. MDU- Mobile Decontamination Unit: $3,000 training and maintenance of State De -Con Unit The department is fortunate to have firefighters who serve in the Armed Services and the Town and Department provide assistance and support to their families when they are deployed for active combat duty. Many thanks go to those who have served on our behalf. The operation of the Fire Department is large and complex. We do more than simply respond to fires, rescues and medical emergencies. Because some of the incidents we encounter are larger or more technical than the resources readily available to the Fire Department, we work collaboratively with various departments and agencies both in and outside the Town. Some of these collaborations include: - Framingham Police Department - Regional Technical Rescue Operations - Collaborative Dive and Underwater Recovery Unit - Tactical Emergency Medical Program Public Safety & Health 94 Town of Framingham Annual Report - State Wide Hazardous Materials Response - Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency With an uncertain economy, we will continue to strive to be even more creative in the way services are delivered, doing more with less while at the same 2010 time maintaining the core mission of the department. I would like to thank the Board of Selectmen, Town Manager, Town Meeting Members and Committees and the residents for the continued support that has been given to the Fire Department.

The Fire Marshal is responsible for the day -to -day operation of the Fire Prevention Office. He is also responsible for conducting fire investigations and coordinating activities between the Framingham Police Department and the State Fire Marshal's office. Other responsibilities of the Marshal include giving safety talks to Framingham's schools, citizens groups, group residences and setting up tours of the Fire Stations. The Marshal also meets on a regular basis with other Town departments to assist in the planning of the Town's future. The Marshal also sits on the Traffic and Roadway Safety Committee. The Assistant Fire Marshal is responsible for reviewing the construction plans that are submitted to the Fire Department. He also meets with contractors, engineers and property owners for up- coming projects and any problems that arise during construction. He coordinates with other Town Departments on important issues such as overcrowding, boarding and lodging house issues. The Inspector is responsible for issuing permits and conducting the inspections required by State and Local codes. He also inspects and tests all new homes, new and remodeled commercial buildings as well as renovation projects. Education/ Revenue The goal of the Framingham Fire Department is to establish a fire and safety education program that will be delivered to preschool, day care, grades K- 6, Boy and Girl Scout troops as well as church, community groups and the elderly. By visiting these groups on an annual basis, the safety message that they receive will become part of their lives and each child, as they grow, will always be aware of fire safety. A total of $201,967.20 was collected in revenue and deposited in the general fund in 2001. $110,696.85 was collected in non - permit fees, such as master box annual fees and site inspections. $91,270.35 was collected in permit fees. Public Safety & Health 95 Town of Framingham Annual Report 2010 Year 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 Permit 3,327 3,037 3,398 3,142 3,521 3,537 3,311 Issued Inspection 2,386 3,312 3,486 3,168 2,689 2,952 3,725 Completed Training: The primary objective of training is to facilitate safe and effective operations. National statistics continually cite emergency vehicle operations as the greatest are of liability. To that end, it was the first major training area to be addressed in 2010. A professional outside agency was brought in to deliver an emergency vehicle operator course to the Department. The course consisted of a classroom component in which all general laws and best practices were highlighted, and a practical component in which all members had to manipulate their assigned apparatus through an obstacle course of highway cones. This standardized emergency vehicle operations class parallels the commercial driver's license course. This training helped to identify needs and establish some goals and objectives for the upcoming year's training; specifically the daily vehicle check, operator's brake system check and new driver training. All three training needs are in development and will be implemented in the spring of 2011. The Framingham Fire Department Training The majority of training hours are devoted to basic firefighting and medical rescue skill maintenance. Most of this training is conducted by the officers as company level drills. Of the basic skills, the self contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) poses the most liability and remains a top training priority. SCBA training is broken down into two sections- basic procedures and emergency procedures. On a regular basis all members must demonstrate proficiency in both areas. Other company level drills follow standardized tactics and procedures and cover a diverse range of skills such as ground ladders, hand tools, extrication, metering devices and medical care. With the exception of Sundays and holidays, training is conducted on every shift. All training is documented electronically and quality controlled by the training officer. Each Framingham Firefighter logs hundreds of hours of training annually. Technical rescue disciplines are also an integral part of the Department Trench Public Safety & Health 96 will remain proactive in regards to safe emergency vehicle operations. Town of Framingham Annual Report rescue, collapse rescue, confined space rescue, hazardous materials response and dive team operations are all specialized areas that the Department is fortunate enough to have several members actively participating with established teams. Members of the Department that are not trained to the operational level must be trained to a support level and be able to operate in any technical rescue. In addition to having our own highly skilled Dive Team, the Framingham Fire Department works cooperatively with the State Hazardous Material Response Team and the Fire District 14 Technical Rescue Team. Fire Alarm The Fire Alarm Division is responsible for the general maintenance of traffic signals, controls, the municipal fire alarm system, master boxes, street boxes and underground and aerial cable. Nine new master boxes were added in 2010. We now have a total of 910 boxes in service in strategic locations throughout Framingham. Of the 910 boxes, 553 are master boxes that protect individual properties and 357 are street boxes. In addition to the regular duties of maintaining and installing the fire alarm and communication system, the Fire Alarm Division was also responsible for maintaining and repairing forty -four (44) traffic signals, six (6) 4 -way flashing signals and two (2) 30 mph "S" curve signals. The following is a breakdown of traffic signal repairs: 59 calls for traffic signals not working; 19 calls for signal heads turned; 32 calls for re- lamping traffic signals. 2010 138 calls for changing of time, checking preemption, Opticom, repair broken pedestrian buttons, repair knock downs, meetings with contractors digging up roads to mark underground pipes, meetings with contractors doing traffic signal improvements, preventive maintenance and investigations. 15 signals knocked -down in motor vehicle accidents: 7 were reported to the Police Department, 8 were hit and run. 128 calls for school zone signals not working properly that required time adjustments, new lamps and new clock installations. This also included time adjustments made at the beginning and end of the school year. The Division installed approximately 2,200 feet of new fire alarm cable for new master boxes and replacement of deteriorated cable doubling the amount installed in 2010. 53 pole transfers for Verizon were completed. The Fire Alarm Division worked jointly with Fire Prevention in reviewing all fire alarm plans submitted to the Department. In addition, the Division attended meetings with contractors for new interior fire alarm installations and master box locations. Both Fire Alarm and Fire Prevention worked together to perform interior fire alarm system inspections in new and existing buildings. Total of 59 meetings Total of 116 plan reviews Total of 115 fire alarm inspections The following new master boxes were added in 2010: Box # Location 698 27 Arsenal Rd 745 248 Worcester Rd Public Safety & Health 97 Town of Framingham Annual Report 843 72 New York Ave 844 70 New York Ave 513 475 Union Ave 3348 29 Daytona Ave Emergency Medical Services: American Medical Response (AMR) continues to provide Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to the Town of Framingham. Currently, AMR is contracted to provide three Advanced Life Support (ALS) Paramedic level 2010 ambulances. Framingham has experienced a steady rise in medical calls as we responded to 6,299 calls for medical assistance in 2010; this is approximately 1.5% increase over 2009. Continued demands on Emergency Medical Services have forced the administration to reevaluate our EMS operations. AMR provides Basic and Advanced Life Support training to Framingham Fire personnel at no additional cost to the Town. Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors Save Lives Respectfully Submitted, Gary T.

Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) The Framingham Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is an approximately 200 member local medical and non - medical volunteer group trained in emergency preparedness and is under the administration of the Board of Health. The MRC is a specialized component of a 34- community emergency preparedness region, and a member of the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) and Citizen Corps, a national network of volunteers dedicated to homeland- hometown security. In 2010 the Framingham MRC continued to grow, steered by the dedicated members of the Executive Committee: Annette Alderman, Alice Hsu, Annie Hsu, Cindy Tracy, Dave Robbins, Florence Goliger, Joan Metcalfe, Kathie McCarthie who held monthly planning meetings. This year Framingham was named one of 13 sentinel communities in Massachusetts which will represent the entire state in the national Cities Readiness Initiative. Members take trainings including CPR, Incident Command Systems, Medical Surge and Catastrophes, and Sheltering Vulnerable Populations. Members also distributed health information at local fairs, staffed a shelter during the March floods, took part in exercises related to emergency planning and mass casualties, helped staff all of the Town's flu clinics and were put on stand- by status during multiple winter weather events. In May an appreciation dinner, attended by the Town Manager, Town Selectmen, and Board of Health members, was held to honor MRC volunteers and the role they played in Framingham's very successful response to the H1N1 pandemic. East Middlesex Mosquito Control Project The East Middlesex Mosquito Control Project conducts a program in Framingham consisting of mosquito surveillance, larval and adult mosquito control, ditch maintenance and public education. Extreme flooding in March produced mixed results with higher spring mosquito populations emerging from forested wetlands and lower mosquito populations emerging from floodplain areas. Dry weather during the late spring and summer produced lower than normal summer mosquito populations. Hot, dry weather provided suitable conditions for a developing risk of West Nile Virus that resulted in 6 human cases in eastern Massachusetts. There was an elevated risk of EEE in southeastern Massachusetts that resulted in a decision by the State to intervene using wide -area aerial spraying. The adult mosquito surveillance program used traps to collect mosquitoes from 5 Framingham locations. Data was compiled from 22 mosquito trap collections over 8 different nights. The Project submitted 125 mosquito collections from around the district that 2010 Public Safety & Health 102 Town of Framingham Annual Report were tested for West Nile Virus and EEE by the Mass. Dept. of Public Health. The larval mosquito control program relied on the larvicides, Bacillus thuraugieusis var. israeleusis (Bti) and methoprene, which are classified by the EPA as relatively non- toxic. An April helicopter application of Bti controlled mosquito larvae at 70 wetland acres. Field crews using portable sprayers applied Bti in the spring and summer to 27 wetland acres when high densities of mosquito larvae were found in stagnant water. Project personnel applied time - release methoprene pellets to control Culex mosquito larvae at 5,324 roadside catchbasins. The Project used an excavator to maintain 519 feet of a waterway adjacent to Georgetown Drive, and 144 feet of a channel by Blackberry Lane. At a waterway beside Walnut St., the excavator was used to maintain 157 feet and Project crews used hand tools to remove debris from another 344 feet. Hand tools were also used to maintain 180 feet of a ditch beside Cherry St. The Project's public education program is designed to develop awareness within the public and the private sectors as to their roles in mosquito control. The Project serves as a resource to residents, municipal officials and the local media on mosquitoes and mosquito borne diseases. A web page: www.town.sudbury.ma.us/services/health /emmcp, provides residents with information on mosquitoes, control programs and related topics.

Sign Officer Dave Keniry, Nuisance Officer Vacant, Code Enforcement Michael McCarthy, Code Enforcement Office Staff: Mary Tiziani, Office Manager Tracy Quintanilla, Admin Asst. FY 2010 Operating Budget (Actual): $697,105.90 FY2010 Fees Collected: $1,332,573 For 2010, the Inspectors, Administrators and Code Enforcement Inspectors within the Building Department have had a very active year providing quality customer service and effective solutions toward resolving citizen concerns. The focus of the Department continues to be the pursuit of the highest quality of public service by responding to concerns as they arise, to follow up on previous concerns, maintain a record of property activities reviewed by inspectors and investigators and be responsive to consumer protection. Public Safety & Health 103 Town of Framingham Annual Report The Department continues to maintain a recognized professional presence for its staff for other communities. As we work toward hiring the best and most qualified people to deliver the services expected other communities see these qualities and extend opportunities to staff members to deliver similar services for their citizens. In 2010, the Assistant Sign Officer, Jennifer Baum tendered her resignation. Jennifer had been with the office for four years, during her time as the Assistant Sign Officer, Jen did perform well considering the complexities and the years that sign enforcement was lax. In view of the budget constraints strangling the town in many ways, the refilling of this position was weighed heavily. The fact there is a need for sign enforcement is evident in the action reports and permits issued. The question on how to deliver this service without sacrificing the other demands was solved by reducing the position to part time. We filled the position with the hiring of Paul Kelly. Paul is a retired 30+ year police detective with familiarity with the town and its' citizens. The office also filled 1 vacant Local Inspector position with the hiring of James Murphy. Jim is a resident of the town and was a local contractor. He has excellent technical construction knowledge and experience, which benefits the town tremendously. We continue to maintain 2 vacant positions for local inspector and off hour code enforcement. As with the Assistant Sign Officer, we are currently accepting application for a part time Code Enforcement Inspector. But again, as we are uncertain as to the future budget we are hesitant to offering the position to a candidate without secure funding. We believe that the off hour code enforcement is still a high priority of service required to address many of the issues raised by the citizens within the town. In light of the reduction of staff we had to adjust how this service was to continue. The inspector continues to work all Saturdays and most evenings during the Spring, Summer and Fall seasons. Due to winter weather and concern for the safety of the inspector we suspended evening hour enforcement where it was proving to be unproductive. While Code Enforcement will continue to be a priority where life safety is at risk, the ability to be more proactive is limited by the available resources. With the staff reduction, the activity report is primarily a reactive response for code enforcement. Our primary focus where life safety risk is the highest are those involved with housing issues. The action report indicates that the inspectors responded to over one thousand (1,000) complaints of which more than 50% involved housing. The report illustrates that the inspectors addressed 78 Rooming House, 116 Illegal Apartment, 27 Basement Apartment complaints and monitored 194 foreclosed properties. We will continue to monitor the foreclosure notices for properties within the town for the near future. We have determined that by being proactive in this area we are able to deter blighted property conditions and have the people who have interest in these properties maintain them. The data base contains critical information for ownership, conditions of the property, status, and use. Properties as noted as being unoccupied are forwarded to both the Framingham Police and Fire 2010 Public Safety & Health 104 Town of Framingham Annual Report Department who monitored and reported conditions of change. The Nuisance Officer has investigated and pursued over 500 cases involving Trash & Debris, Commercial Vehicles, Unregistered Vehicles and Vehicles Parking within the front Setback. Sign enforcement did slip a little during the six -month transition period from the departure of Jen to the hiring and training of Paul. The marginal differences are evident within the permit history where there is a reduction of 25% from the previous year, and the same can be seen in the action report for enforcement of 20% less notices. With the adoption of the Sign Appeal process by Town Meeting, there were some who viewed this option as an opportunity to derail the by right Sign By- Law where the town would be smothered in requests for variances to the ZBA. As of the writing of this report, the ZBA has heard seven (7) cases for sign variances, granted five (5) and denied two (2). The economic crisis and inflationary effects on commodities and goods provided high demand for consumer protection. Jack Walsh, the Town's Sealer and the Assistant Sealer, Ed Gentile provided preventive and reactive response service to monitor and address consumers concerns. They investigated multiple cases involving retail gas pricing, fuel oil delivery services and retail price frauds. The building permit activity for 2010 indicates that over 1900 permits were issued for this period a decrease of less than 2% (35) from 2009. The office issued Eight (8) New single family home building permits which is well below the average of twenty -three (23) in reviewing the past five year permit history. The total receipts for 2010 were down by over $400,000 in comparison to the previous year. The office anticipated a decline in new construction activity for 2010 and we do not anticipate any large growth spurts for 2011. If construction trends continue as they have in the past and maintain consistency as they have these past 3 years. We expect both commercial and residential property owners to continue with upgrades, maintenance and minor improvements. The permit staples of the building department include roofs, window, siding, decks, kitchen and bathrooms. The department overall permit issuance is consistent with previous years with over 5100 permits issued across the board, Building, Signs, Electrical Plumbing and Gas. The field inspectors' logs are also consistent with requests for service, with each averaging 12 -14 stops per day. 2010 was an active year with multiple code changes and it appears 2011 will provide the same. In 2010 the State of Mass adopted the 2009 International Building Code (IBC) to replace the 7` edition 780 CMR the Mass State Building Code. In addition to the 2009 IBC, the 2009 Energy Code was also implemented along with 2009 Existing building Code. In the adoption of the 2009 IBC the state also adopted its' own 300 -page amendment. The staff and I would also like to take this time to congratulate Jack Walsh on his retirement. After 30 plus years of civil service with over 20 years with the Town of Framingham, Jack retired on January 28, 2011. Finding a person to deliver the services Jack provided is proving challenging, and we wish him the best of health and enjoyment. 2010 Public Safety & Health 105 Town of Framingham Annual Report I extend my deepest appreciation to the team I have the pleasure of working with daily, their individual and combined efforts to provide quality service to the people and businesses within the community is tireless.

The Department had one case in Framingham District Court (criminal) for overcharging consumers. The Department during 2010 saved consumers and businesses in Framingham well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars by conducting both mandated and spot inspections. This is in addition to the fees and fines collected for the town. Errors were found and corrected which resulted in sufficient savings to consumers. The Department checked 3,650 items in local retail stores to ensure that they scanned correctly. The Department found that 97.89 % were priced correctly, 1.32 % were under priced, and 0.79 % were overpriced. This was an improvement over the previous year and shows that our education and inspection program is working. The Department investigated approximately 50 consumer complaints during the year. The Sealer served as the Chairman of the Northeast Weights and Measures Association for the 2010 year. This national organization which is supported by the United States Department of Commerce through National Institute of Standards and Technology (NISI) includes the states of Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. The Sealer was also elected as the Chair of the Legislation Committee for the Massachusetts Weights and Measures Association. He serves on the Board of Directors of both the Eastern Massachusetts Weights and Measures Association, and the Massachusetts Weights and Measures Association. I want to thank Mike Foley, the Director of Inspectional Services, the town's part - time Weights and Measures Inspector, Ed Gentili, and our part -time Administrative Support Person, Mary Tiziani, for their help and assistance during the past year.

Conner, Director of Administration & Finance 508 -532 -5611 ENGINEERING AND TRANSPORTATION DIVISION The Engineering and Transportation Division is responsible for the planning, design and construction of capital roadway and utility infrastructure projects, maintaining compliance with various State & Federal programs such as NPDES Phase II Stormwater, managing the Town's Street Opening Permit and Trench Opening Permit programs, reviewing development and redevelopment plans to ensure roadway and utility changes conform to the Town's construction standards, and inspecting modifications and expansions to the roadway, water, sewer and Stormwater networks. The Division also provides technical expertise to the operational divisions of the Public Works Department, other Town Departments, various Boards, Committees, and Commissions, maintains an extensive Geographical Information System (GIS) and is the custodian of a large collection of irreplaceable paper plans and documents. A significant portion of the Division's resources were directed toward the Department's extensive capital improvement program. Many of the projects in this program are mandated under MADEP Administrative Consent Order (ACO). The ACO requires the Town to undertake major sewer construction and rehabilitation projects over several years with the primary focus of alleviating reoccurring sanitary sewer overflows, a violation of State and Federal law. Failure to comply with the conditions of the ACO can result in administrative civil or criminal action. Continued improvements to the infrastructure and maintenance management of the wastewater system and has resulted in significant reductions in Sewer System Overflows (SSO's). During 2010 thirty -five major capital improvement projects were completed or advanced. Over eighty -six thousand linear feet (over sixteen miles) of water and wastewater main was replaced or rehabilitated. Locations included Lillian Road, Lillian Road Extension, New York Avenue, California Avenue, Concord Street, Union Avenue, Beulah Street, Auburn Street Extension, Gorman Road, Hartford Street, Grant Street, Grant Road Extension, Arthur Street, Maple Street, Water Street, Edgell Road, Gates Street, Parker Road, Salem End Road, Stalker Lane and Goodnow Lane. Replacements of the Ransom Road wastewater pump station and the William J. Heights water booster station were also completed. Construction also began on the new A Street wastewater management facility. Storm drain system Public Works 108 Town of Framingham repairs were performed on Water Street and an outfall off of Carter Drive was replaced. Major transportation projects included the reconstruction of eight thousand linear feet of roadway, almost fourteen thousand linear feet of sidewalk, and 37 new accessible sidewalk ramps on Water Street; sidewalk replacements on Winthrop Street; replacement of the Maple Street stormwater culvert; and completion of the Franklin Street Traffic and Roadway Improvements project. The Franklin Street work included ornamental traffic signals, and brick paver crosswalks and sidewalk accents. Emergency repairs to the Central Street Bridge over the Sudbury River were designed and implemented. The Division is coordinating the design of a replacement structure, anticipated for construction in 2013. The Division also coordinated with the MassDOT with respect to the repaving of Route 9 and multiple bridge replacement projects (Fountain Street, Danforth Street, Winter Street over the Sudbury River and Winter Street over the CSX Railroad). In 2010, two dozen design projects were advanced, nine to completion. A major focus was the Technology Park where additional infrastructure improvements are necessary to support continued economic development. The Division is working closely with the Massachusetts Life Science Center (MLSC) to obtain grant funds over and above the $12.9 million the Town has already secured. The Division assisted with planning for the impending NPDES Phase II Stormwater Permit revision. The Division formulated and compiled comments on the draft permit received from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The Division continued the second of three phases of a comprehensive town -wide Stormwater Master Plan and coordinated the implementation of revised Flood Insurance Rate Maps prepared 2010 Annual Report by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The Division continued a system -wide QA- QC review of water GIS layers and raised the status of those layers to Functionally Complete; updated the building and parcel layers; completed project -based updates from Town capital projects; completed upgrades to the Department's asset management software and databases; provided web -based GIS access to the Department's consultants; updated snow plowing and sanding maps for winter storm management; and provided GIS mapping capability to the Town's permitting software. The Division completed electronic scanning of over 10,000 historic paper record plans of Town infrastructure, private property records, Town property and easements, and street acceptance plans. These electronic scans will be cataloged in the Town's electronic document management system for permanent storage and retrieval. The Division completed an update of Pavement Condition Index for all Town roadways (210+ miles of roadway). The update included a field assessment of the pavement for each roadway, updates to the pavement management backlog, an analysis of pavement management funding needs, updates to the Town's pavement asset management software, and updates to the Town's GIS. Despite the sluggish economy, the volume of 2010 permit application approvals and engineering plan reviews was at an average level compared with prior years. However the Division permitted and inspected a record 1,300,000 square feet of street openings, the equivalent of reconstructing over 8 miles of new roadway. Public Works 109 Town of Framingham HIGHWAY MANAGEMENT PROGRAM The Highway Division is responsible for the maintenance and repair of the Town's roadway and sidewalk infrastructure including; pavement markings, granite and bituminous curbing, street and regulatory signage, stormwater utilities, traffic islands, and street trees. Stormwater Management The Stormwater Management System consists of more than 200 miles of surface and subsurface drainage systems, 12,200 catch basin and manhole structures, and more than 600 drainage outfalls. 2010 construction projects included Stormwater pipe and catch basin installation on Spring Street and Saybrook Road, as well as the repair of 152 drainage structures and the cleaning of 103,301 feet of drain line. This work was mostly performed by Department staff saving a great deal of money in labor costs. The Division has instituted a monthly inspection practice in a proactive approach to drainage structure maintenance The Division is responsible for maintaining, inspecting and operating the Town's Saxonville flood levee system which consists of 2,550 feet of earth dikes, 1,340 feet of concrete flood walls, 1000 feet of channel realignment, a pumping station, interior drainage and a vehicular flood gate. In order to maintain compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Stormwater Phase II Permit, the Highway Division made a vigorous year -long effort to visit and clean as many of the drainage structures as possible and with use of contracted services, removed silt, sand, and debris from approximately 8,200 catch basins. The storm drain cleaning program has continued to produce a significant repair list as the inspection process proceeds. The Beaver Dam Brook and Hop Brook continue to be significant operational challenges for the Division as even modest rain events may 2010 Annual Report cause the brooks to surcharge at the many culvert headwalls in both South Framingham and the Gregory Road area of North Framingham. The deficiencies in the Stormwater systems throughout the Town are a major cause of unscheduled overtime and emergency repair cost incurred by the Town. In order to minimize the amount of sand entering and further diminishing the capacity of the system, the Division has continued strict control practices for the use of deicing materials during the winter months. In addition, a rapid and comprehensive post - winter street cleaning program is performed annually to remove as much sand as possible from the streets and thereby minimize the opportunity for accumulation in the drainage system. The Division also performed routine overnight sweeping of the streets and sidewalks of the commercial areas to minimize the entry of materials into the drainage system and to provide a cleaner environment in the downtown area. The removal of sand and debris from the Town's catch basins and manholes remains an operational priority each year. Pavement Management The 2010 construction projects included the replacement or upgrade of roadway elements and appurtenances so that both regulatory guidelines and directives were adhered to and visual enhancements could be made. New pavement markings, street signs, sidewalks, granite and bituminous curbing, wheelchair ramps and curb -cut control measures were addressed during construction. The projects addressed more than seven miles of public ways; this in addition to preventive and emergency road and bridge repairs, and the filling of over 12,000 potholes. Winter Storm Management The Highway Division is responsible for the provision of a safe automotive and pedestrian environment both during and after winter Public Works 110 Town of Framingham storm events. This effort involves the plowing and treating of 550 lane miles of public roadway, 36 municipal parking facilities, 77 miles of sidewalks and public pathways, 183 crosswalks, 187 cul -de -sacs and 31 school crossing -guard stations and student drop -off areas. The Division has integrated the Town's Geographical Information System (GIS) with an Incident Command Structure to manage each event. The purpose of this strategic effort is to provide a high level of accountability while applying the minimum amount of resources to each storm event. Tree Warden & Forestry Management The Highway Division is responsible for the maintenance management of the Town's estimated 12,000 public street trees and for the development of a Public Shade Tree program for the community. The purpose of this program is to promote, preserve, and enhance the shade tree environment of the community through the application of best management practices and public education campaigns. The Department planted 25 trees throughout the Town in 2010. The Highway Division oversees the Town's roadside vegetation management program that is permitted annually by the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources Pesticide Bureau. This program allows the Department to apply best management practices for the control of curbside vegetation that otherwise would grow uncontrollably and require the commitment of substantial and sustained labor to control growth. A primary and recurring function of this operating group is the statutory requirement to maintain the 14' -6" height clearance over the 550 lane mile roadway network. The Town's shade trees, while providing a great public amenity to the Town, require routine maintenance so that they do not also become a public liability. 2010 Annual Report The Tree warden conducts frequent hazardous tree assessments, prescribes treatment, oversees removals, and participates in public hearings on issues related to trees within scenic ways. The Department routinely responds to citizen inquiries and requests for service, and Forestry Section personnel removed 142 dead, diseased, and /or hazardous street trees in 2010. The tree crews performed tree pruning for road and sidewalk clearance on several streets included in the 2010 Annual Road Resurfacing Plan. Department staff continued a town -wide tree survey to identify tree hazards and diseases so that we may provide and promote tree health and support and an overall accounting of street trees which may benefit the Town of Framingham in federal and state grant applications. Traffic Systems Management The Traffic Systems section of the Highway Division manages the maintenance, fabrication, and placement of the Town's regulatory and street signage, steel -beam safety guardrail, installation of new and annual maintenance of existing pavement markings, and the work zone safety program for Division operations. This section is responsible for advance planning of traffic management coordination for roadway construction, as well as for the implementation of street -by- street "no parking" postings required to efficiently advance the street sweeping program. The pre - planning for traffic management during the construction season maximizes the efficient production of the work, and also contributes to a safe environment for the motorists and the work crews alike. The Traffic Systems section managed the contract and divisional painting of 113 miles of yellow centerline, 23 miles of white edge line, and over 600 crosswalks throughout the Town. Public Works 111 Town of Framingham In addition, the Division installed and or replaced hundreds of regulatory signs and advisory signs either by direction of the Board of Selectmen or as required through routine maintenance practices. SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT PROGRAM Solid Waste Management The Solid Waste Management Program is responsible for the management and oversight of the Town's Solid Waste and Recycling Programs. Materials are collected by means of curbside and containerized collection programs, the leaf and yard waste drop -off area and the operation of a Resource Recovery Center located on Mt. Wayte Ave. The Division collects and manages the collection of refuse and recycling from 19,503 dwelling units weekly, averaging more than 3,900 stops and 104,731 pounds per day collected. During the summer and fall of 2010 the Division took the first steps to automating the curbside recycling collection process town wide. The Division oversaw the distribution of wheeled carts to all properties included in the curbside service base. This distribution included approximately 10,000 64- gallon carts, 7,000 96- gallon carts and 200 35- gallon carts for seniors and disabled. The distribution of these carts has allowed the Town to move to an every other week curbside collection schedule for recyclables. This has achieved a year one savings of $125,000 over the previous collection method. In 2010, the Division continued to employ a multi facetted approach to decrease the Town's overall trash disposal costs. Some of these approaches included: 1. School and Municipal participation; the school recycling program continues to succeed and grow. During this year the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection 2010 Annual Report has awarded the Town a $32,000.00, two year grant for a food composting pilot program and the elimination of the use of Styrofoam trays and plastic silverware. Year one involves the Barbieri Elementary School. This school alone disposes of over 50,000 trays per year and double that number in plastic utensils. 2. Public Education; 2010 continued the monthly theme and events program. Two of these events continue to be extremely popular with residents. These include the annual Electronics Day and the Shred Fest (secure confidential document shredding). Both events are held at no additional charge to the residents. The electronic take back day has allowed the town to donate hundreds of pounds of non - perishable food to local food pantries as participating residents are encouraged to make a donation. In addition to events, the Division performed two mass mailings explaining the new recycling containers and what items could be placed in them. This included one mailing to all property owners and a second mailing to all residents included in the Division's service base. 3. Enhancements and Initiatives; Single stream recycling, or "all in one container ", continues to be well received and successful. Single stream recycling was a key component to moving to the every other week recyclable collection in the wheeled carts. The Resource Recovery Center (RRC) located on Mount Wayte Ave, continues to improve and provides the Department the opportunity to expand upon the services offered. Last year the Division issued 6,922 permits to residents providing access to the solid waste services offered at the facility. This represents an additional 92 permits issued over 2009. The center continues to provide excellent service at reduced costs to the residents as well as generate a significant revenue stream for the town. The Town continues to partner Public Works 112 Town of Framingham with the Town of Wellesley in the marketing of recyclables. This has allowed a greater revenue stream to be produced for the recyclables received. Through fees collected for divisional services and marketing of the recyclables during FY2010, $238,575.70 was generated for the General Fund. This represents a $16k increase over the previous fiscal year. The town continues to enjoy the successes derived by making it easier for residents to recycle. In addition to the hazardous and hard to manage wastes collected at the RRC, the center collected 430.65 tons of recyclables while curbside recyclables totaled 4,348.11 tons. This represents a trash disposal cost avoidance of $430.088.40. WATER AND WASTEWATER MANAGEMENT PROGRAM The Water and Wastewater Program is responsible for the provision of a drinking water supply, a fire suppression service, and a sewer collection service to the 70,000 residents of the community that it serves. The Water Department is responsible for the distribution of a public potable water supply and for the provision of fire suppression service to the 17,000 residential and commercial accounts within the community. The average daily water demand of nearly seven million gallons per day (mgd) is purchased from the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) and is subsequently distributed throughout the Town by means of a complicated system of pumps, pipes, valves, and reservoirs. The Water Department program provides for the maintenance and repair to the water distribution infrastructure that includes; 250 miles of pipe, 17,000 service connections, 2,000 hydrants, 4,800 gate valves, 22,000 meters, 4 pumping stations, 3 booster stations, and 6 above ground water tanks having a storage capacity of nearly 9 million gallons. 2010 Annual Report The Wastewater Department is responsible for the collection and transport of 10 million gallons of sewage each day, a significant portion of which is infiltration and inflow (I /I) from sources such as leaking pipes and sump pump discharges during wet weather. Sewage is conveyed from town systems to the MWTZA which is charged with the transport and treatment of sewerage from its forty -three member communities. The town's collection system consists of 226 miles of gravity mains, 18 miles of force mains, 50 pump stations, 6,600 manholes, and over 40 miles of cross - country sewer -line easements. The Division's capital improvement programs have been substantially under funded in recent decades and, as a consequence, the critical infrastructure is experiencing ever increasing incidents of failure. The system continued to grow and expand over time, but the funding for the aging and expanding infrastructure did not keep pace with capital needs. As a consequence, the Division was historically engaged solely in performing unscheduled maintenance and was unable to devote resources to perform critical maintenance to the system. This is underscored by the issuance of an Administrative Consent Order (ACO) and Notice of Noncompliance by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MADEP) during March 2007. The ACO requires the Town to undertake major sewer construction and rehabilitation projects over several years with the primary focus of alleviating reoccurring sanitary sewer overflows, a violation of State and Federal law. The ACO has several other requirements including increased staffing levels, major equipment purchases, implementation of a SCADA system to remotely monitor and control pumping stations and strict reporting requirements. Failure to comply with the conditions of the ACO can result in administrative civil or criminal action. Public Works 113 Town of Framingham The Department also faces the continuing challenges of managing another Administrative Order originally issued by the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority in 2003. The MWRA Settlement Agreement limits the level of sulfide that the Town is authorized to discharge to the MWRA system through operational efforts. Sulfide generation can cause odor and corrosion problems in sewers which sometimes can be catastrophic. Activities which the Wastewater Department performs to mitigate the generation of sulfide include chemical dosing at selected wastewater pumping stations, targeted collection system cleaning and inspection, and enforcement of grease interceptor requirements at food establishments. A major cause of sulfide is the wastewater detention time associated with the 50 pumping stations and 19 miles of related sewer force main sewer. The Department plans on eliminating up to eight wastewater pumping stations and related force mains over the next several years as part of its Capital program. In recent years the Department of Public Works has developed a professional and knowledge staff at all levels and disciplines. This progression has provided an opportunity to identify and fully carry out some capital projects from design through construction using solely Public Works staff. This practice not only provides the Town with a significant cost savings over contracting for these services but is used as a tool for continually training our employees. During 2010 water or sewer infrastructure was replaced using this approach in Ransom Road, Winthrop Street, Kendall Avenue and Fredrick Street. The aforementioned construction activities were in addition to the excavations required by department staff to repair over 280 water system failures and 220 sewer system failures during the course of the year. Additionally the Water and Wastewater Division responded to over 900 first response calls and replaced over 65 hydrants. The Wastewater division, with the help of a newly acquired camera truck, provided video inspection of over 87,565 2010 Annual Report linear feet of sewer pipes an 80 % increase over 2009. The inspection process reveals areas of the system that have potential problems that may require repair or replacement. The Department began installation of the Automated Meter Reading (AMR) system early in 2009 and approximately 99% of the town's water meters are now being read remotely. The AMR system provides the utility billing office with real time, on demand, water meter readings providing a substantially higher level of customer service to water and sewer customers. It is anticipated that all 21,000 meters will be outfitted with the new reading device in early 2011. In collaboration with NSTAR Electric measures were taken to retrofit many of the older pump stations enabling the stations to operate with higher efficiency. These energy saving devices have lowered our power requirements. The Water and Wastewater Department's Emergency Standards were updated during 2010 to comply with the revised American Water Works recommendations for construction. Currently the department is revising the drinking water regulations. New regulations include specific requirements for Emergency Response Plans and notification requirements for reporting emergencies to the MADEP, and the Board of Health such as with a loss of water supply, contamination incident, acts of vandalism and other potential or actual emergencies requiring an immediate action in order to protect public health. CONSERVATION COMMISSION The Conservation Commission Office is responsible for implementing local, state, and federal wetland laws, managing over 400 acres of conservation land, and engaging the public in conservation efforts. The Conservation Office is responsible for reviewing all proposed and on -going municipal, private, commercial, and industrial projects to determine if they fall under the jurisdiction of local, state, and federal wetland Public Works 114 Town of Framingham laws. Conservation staff conducts site inspections, attends pertinent meetings and represents the Commission in legal matters. Staff advises and provides technical expertise to the Conservation Commission to assist with the protection of the environment. Other duties include: managing conservation land owned by the Town; overseeing the Framingham Stewardship Program; directing the Aquatic Management Program and providing education and outreach to residents 1. Wetlands Protection Achievements; the Commission and staff: • Reviewed, for jurisdictional relevance, all applications for 86 Building permits, 32 ZBA permits, and 14 Planning Board permits; • Held 27 Public meetings to discuss project applications, land management efforts, and public education efforts; • Reviewed 16 and permitted 16 Notices of Intent applications; • Reviewed 11 and permitted 11 Requests for Determination applications; • Permitted 1 Emergency Certification • Performed numerous site visits and inspections to gain first -hand information on -site conditions and verify wetland delineations. The Commission continued to oversee active projects from prior years. It issued: • Amended Orders of Conditions for project changes • 2 Permit Extensions • 15 Certificates of Compliance • 14 Wetland Violations 2. Land Acquisition and Stewardship Achievements; With help from the Framingham Stewardship Program and many other local conservation groups, the Conservation Office continued to make 2010 Annual Report improvements to its conservation land holding work days on conservation parcels. Efforts focused on removal of trash and brush, creation of new trails, maintenance of existing trails, etc. The office continues to provide opportunities for volunteers. 3. Educational Achievements: The Conservation Office will continue to offer educational programs while exploring new topics of interest related to environmental education. 4. Administrative Achievements; The Conservation Commission works closely with DPW, Park and Recreation Dept., Planning Board, Building Dept., and ZBA to ensure compliance with state and local wetland laws. Conservation Commission Staff works closely with several local organizations such as Sudbury Valley Trustees, New England Wildflower Society, Bay Circuit Trail Alliance, SuAsCo Wild and Scenic River Stewardship Counsel, Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, Masswildlife, Mass Department of Environmental Protection, etc. to protect the Town's wetland resource areas and open space. FLEET, FACILITIES AND COMMUNICATIONS PROGRAM The Fleet, Facilities and Communications program continues to provide a critical support service to various public works programs and provides vehicle and equipment maintenance support to other agencies within the Town. The Program is accountable for; the development and implementation of professional fleet management standards and practices, the design and procurement of all public works vehicles and equipment, and for providing standardized maintenance management practices for all public works facilities including water and wastewater pumping stations. The Division is also charged with the technical management of the telecommunications network and thereby provides a critical service component to the Department's Emergency Management Response Plan. Public Works 115 Town of Framingham The Fleet, Facility, and Communications Division's role is to provide logistical support to the Department through the provision of fully operational equipment, facilities, and telecommunications that together, ensure the effective and efficient delivery of essential services to the residents of the community. These vital services include the provision of public safety, public works, and public utility functions for the residents of Framingham. This year the Town of Framingham's Police Department and Department of Public Works became one of three major equipment and materials cache sites for the Northeast Homeland Security Regional Advisory Council (NERAC). The Department of Public Works stores and monitors the equipment and materials and is prepared to assist in distribution of these items if needed during a declared state of emergency. Fleet Management In 2010 the Division oversaw the conversion of a 68,000 gross vehicle weight (GVW) refuse packer cab & chassis to a snow fighter with a permanent mount fourteen cubic yard sander for use in winter operations. This unit is equipped with an eleven foot front plow and an underbody scraper and maintains one of the Town's many major hub plow routes. The vehicle's large size is advantageous during winter operations as it can stay out longer, holding more material. The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection has supplied the Town with three retrofit kits to help reduce emissions on our older refuse packers. This was accomplished with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection Retrofit Grant Program. This year the Department was able to acquire a Hybrid /Diesel Pipeline Television Inspection Vehicle for the Wastewater Division. The Hybrid upgrade for this piece 2010 Annual Report of equipment was funded via a grant from the Department of Energy Resources. We have had several technician training sessions both in -house and off site to help keep our technicians current with the ever changing industry. This included an American Public Works Association's annual Mechanics Workshop that was hosted by the Fleet Services Division and included technicians from other municipalities. This has been the fourth winter season using a temporary site at the King School for technicians who are assigned to be on the north side of town during plowing events. This has worked very well in providing the technicians a more functional area to work so repairs can be performed more effectively and reducing the vehicle's `out of service' time that would occur returning to the Western Avenue facility. In 2010, Fleet Services wrote 2 repair orders, performed 444 scheduled preventative maintenance services and performed 161 Commonwealth of Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles Enhanced Emissions State Inspections. The Division also managed the acquisition & distribution of more than 237,500 gallons of gasoline & diesel fuel. The Department participated in a Toyota Prins Plug -in Hybrid evaluation program. The goal of the program was to help Toyota determine how Plug -In Hybrid vehicles would perform in a fleet environment. Facility Maintenance Each year the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection's Stage II Vapor Recovery Certification program is performed for the fuel system at Western Avenue along with the annual calibration of the fuel pumps which is performed by the Town's Sealer of Weights & Measurers. The oil /water separators at Western Avenue and the Mt. Public Works 116 Town of Framingham Wayte recycling facility are inspected quarterly and pumped out in compliance with DEP regulations as needed but at least annually. Full load tests were performed on the emergency/ standby generators at both the Western Avenue and Henry Street facilities. This is done quarterly to insure proper operation along with a semi - annual maintenance program. The annual fire sprinkler inspection was performed at the Western Avenue facility. This year the fuel island pad was replaced at the Western Avenue facility due to major deterioration. We have begun a replacement program of the yard lighting at the Western Avenue facility. The lighting units are being replaced with energy efficient LED pole lights. This replacement program is partially funded through an NSTAR grant and should be completed early in 2011. This year the equipment wash bay located at Western Avenue was refurbished due to corrosion on the major steel support beams. The repair to the beams was accomplished by the Fleet Services Welder/ Fabricator. The Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Plan (SPCCP) has been updated as per Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection regulations. This plan is necessary so there are guidelines in place to respond to any type of uncontrolled release of hazardous materials. This plan also includes all of the town's pumping stations and the Resource Recovery Center. Fleet Services continues to do a monthly inspection of the Watson Place flood station and performs any necessary repairs. ADMINISTRATION & FINANCE The Administration and Finance Division provides for the consolidation of all administrative and financial functions within the Department of Public Works. The 2010 Annual Report Division strives to enhance the efficiency and accuracy of financial and administrative functions within the Department through the use of professional practices. The core mission of the Division of Administration & Finance is to provide service and technical support to the major Divisions within the Department of Public Works: Engineering, Conservation, Highway, Solid Waste, Fleet, Water and Wastewater as well as providing other Town Departments with information in a timely and accurate manner. The Division is also responsible for the management of grant funding, as well as federal reimbursement activities that are related to storm emergencies and other events. Water and Sewer utility billings for the Town of Framingham are also managed by this Division. Staff issued approximately 73,000 bills in 2010. Residential customers in Framingham are billed quarterly for water and sewer usage, while commercial, industrial and high volume customers are billed monthly. The staff also administers the Senior Discount and Utility Abatement policies on behalf of the Board of Selectmen. In July 2010 a new software system was implemented for utility billing activities. This robust software along with the benefits of the automated meter reading (AMR) system greatly improved the efficiency and accuracy of utility billing and enhanced customer service. The AMR technology provides meter readings for each property four times a day. This feature has been an important tool in helping customers understand their usage and identify leaks. During 2010 the division completed the implementation of an automated time and attendance system used by Public Works Departments. The system records an employee's hours worked and other payroll Public Works 117 Town of Framingham related costs. The system provides more accurate tracking of hours and offers management a range of labor reporting. Department staff worked with representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) on a declared emergency. Two periods of intense rainfall and high winds occurring between March and April 2010 caused damage throughout town. The department documented its costs and submitted a claim for approximately $200,000.00. 2010 Annual Report Members of the department oversaw the Drainlayer License renewal process, the processing of personnel related activities for the 150 members of the Public Works Department as well as the processing of thousands of vendor invoices.

The projects are multi- dimensional, ranging from securing grants and providing policy analyses to promoting homeownership and strengthening the tax base by encouraging appropriate new development. The Division consists of three departments: Planning, Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA), and the federally funded Community Development office. While each department focuses on different planning functions, there are strong interrelationships between and amongst the departments as well as other municipal divisions, boards and committees. Consisting of four interconnected components, the Plan is focused on: recognizing and supporting the critical roles that the commercial sector plays in improving the quality of life for Framingham residents by contributing to the tax base, supplying employment opportunities, and providing a diversity of goods and services. Promote Downtown Revitalization The department coordinates ongoing and planned projects directed at revitalizing Framingham's central business district. C &ED works closely with the Town Manager, Department of Public Works, Building and Wires Department, and Planning Board as well as state, regional and federal agencies and legislators to insure that all projects are moving forward in a coordinated and expeditious manner. PLANNING The Planning component of the Division is concentrated on both promoting economic development and supporting our residential neighborhoods. Planners also manage a wide variety of projects and provide policy analyses requested by the Town Manager, Board of Selectmen, and other divisions. Economic Development The department is committed to encouraging appropriate economic development in order to expand and strengthen the tax base, thereby contributing to the fiscal health of the town. Planners are responsible for implementing the Town Manager's Economic Development Strategic Plan. Underlying the Town's approach to improving the economic viability of Downtown Framingham is the recognition that public infrastructure improvements are critical to leverage private investment. Public investment is directed at facilitating vehicular and pedestrian circulation patterns, improving safety, and beautifying the downtown as well as upgrading water and sewer infrastructure. Working with DPW and its consultant as well as Planning Board staff, C &ED has helped guide the development of a long- term revitalization strategy for the downtown that addresses the rail crossing issue, seeks to incorporate Farm Pond into the downtown, promotes mixed -use Planning & Economic Development 122 Town of Framingham Annual Report development, significantly improves safety and traffic flow, and enhances the physical appeal of the downtown. The State is currently undertaking an Environmental Review of a long -term plan to introduce a grade separation into the downtown. Simultaneously, the Town is engaged in discussions with both the State Government—including the Lt. Governor —and CSX, which owns over 200 acres of land dedicated to railroad use in the downtown. Plans to effect significant vehicular and pedestrian improvements that will address traffic flow and improve safety have also been developed. These plans, combined with major streetscape improvements to beautify the downtown and help entice visitors to the district are nearing 25% completion. It is anticipated that the State will sponsor a public hearing in 2011 to solicit input into the design plans. Finally, the department is exploring the applicability of the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Main Street Program to downtown Framingham. Framingham Downtown Renaissance C &ED staff works with Framingham Downtown Renaissance (FDR), a non- profit organization focused on the revitalization of our downtown. Revitalize Neighborhood Commercial Areas Whereas the downtown is a focus of the department's economic development efforts, it is clearly just one of a number of projects that have undertaken or expanded upon during 2010. The commercial centers in Nobscot and along Mount Wayte /Franklin Streets were identified as areas that warrant revitalization. C &ED maintained its 2010 previously established relationships with the property owners and continued to convey the Town's willingness— indeed eagerness—to work closely with them and any prospective tenants or buyers in order to revitalize those areas. Implement Brownfields Project Framingham has a considerable number of Brownfields, which are properties that contain or potentially contain hazardous substances, pollutants or contaminants that complicate the property's expansion or redevelopment. Brownfields are not only a blighting influence on their surroundings, but are typically underutilized, thereby representing enormous potential to generate significant new property taxes once they are abated or it is established that they are not contaminated. The department has focused significant energy on securing funding to identify, abate and eventually redevelop Brownfields. Our efforts to secure Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) funding have been successful and will continue in future years. C &ED has received two $200,000 grants from the EPA to undertake comprehensive site assessments of Brownfields. The Division applied for a third grant from EPA in 2010 and will receive notification during 2011. The Division continues to implement the Brownfields Project, which involves targeting sites, working with property owners, and hiring a licensed site professional to conduct Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) of selected properties. The Town's consultant has undertaken nine ESAs including several for a potential community garden and for a new branch library proposed for Nobscot. Planning & Economic Development 123 Town of Framingham Annual Report Encourage Appropriate Economic Development New development is one of the few mechanisms available to expand the tax base, thereby reducing the financial burden on existing property owners and /or increasing the availability of funding to improve municipal services. In recognition of the tremendous potential of Technology Park, C &ED works with both prospective developers and the State to encourage and facilitate appropriate development. C &ED participates in a quarterly meeting with Tech Park property owners and tenants together with Town officials to identify issues of mutual concern and how we can strengthen our partnership to address these issues. The department is also working to target and promote the development of major parcels for (re)development throughout town. Although the lack of available credit has seriously undermined the progress of several private developments, we are focused on some of the opportunities presented by vacant and underutilized property in the downtown and community -wide. Protect and Improve Residential Neighborhoods While economic development initiatives support residential neighborhoods by generating additional taxes, C &ED also undertook projects that were directed specifically at protecting and improving Framingham's neighborhoods. The department continued to respond to a Board of Selectmen policy that places a priority on encouraging homeownership and targeting efforts to vulnerable neighborhoods. Both the Community Development Block Grant and HOME Programs are focused on improving neighborhoods. 2010 Work with DPW to Minimize Construction Impacts Given its commitment to help support existing businesses, C &ED worked closely with DPW to minimize impacts caused by construction of major capital improvements to the town's infrastructure. This municipal partnership will continue in future years in order to assist the business community. Neighborhood Stabilization Program The dramatic increase in home foreclosures that began in 2008 persisted in 2010. C &ED continued to implement the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP), funded by three grants secured and administered by C &ED totaling $1.35 million. The success of NSP represents the combined efforts of C &ED and the Board of Selectmen as well as the direct and critically important involvement of the Framingham Housing Authority (FHA) and its subsidiary, the Framingham Housing Development Corporation (FHDC). The overriding focus of NSP is to acquire and convert foreclosed properties into owner - occupied homes to reduce the potential for blight and help stabilize neighborhoods. Thus far, the program has resulted in the purchase of five homes, four of which have been completely renovated, and one of which has been sold to an income - eligible family. Sale of a second unit is pending, and a two- family has been retained by FHDC, which will be placing two families in the units during 2011. The fourth property is for sale and renovation of the fifth property, which will be converted from a three- family to a single - family, will start in the spring of 2011 using the proceeds from the first sale. These renovated properties have Planning & Economic Development 124 Town of Framingham Annual Report improved the appearance of the neighborhoods in which they are situated As the NSP properties are sold, additional properties will be acquired, rehabilitated and sold with the sales proceeds. For more information, please go to: www.framin Promote the Town Interrelated with both the Economic Development and Neighborhood Services Strategic Plans, a concerted effort is underway to market the desirable attributes of Framingham in order to encourage individuals, families and firms to locate, invest, and shop in our town. A marketing brochure was developed and released to major employers, brokers and banks during 2010. As an extension of the Branding Study, C &ED staff has developed a marketing campaign, a major component of which is a web site created in conjunction with Technology Services. The two divisions will continue to refine the web site, which can be accessed by clicking on www.chooseframingham.com The site will eventually be populated with businesses and linked to brokers. Pursue State and Federal Grants The department continued to analyze the applicability of grants as well as research the availability of funding for specific projects. In order to insure that all municipal departments are eligible to receive State grants, the department annually submits an application to the Commonwealth Capital Program, which essentially grades municipalities on their success in meeting State objectives and mandates. Framingham was awarded the 5th highest score in Massachusetts in 2010, which positions us extremely well for a wide variety of state grants. 2010 The department applied for and received over $1.2 million in grants during 2010 as follows: $150,000 Attorney General's Housing Rehabilitation Grant $500,000 Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) $585,000 State TIP transportation funds to complete the Cochituate Rail Trail $10,000 State Green Communities Technical Assistance The department also applied for the following grant that remains pending: $400,000 Brownfields Environmental Site Assessment Grant to fund ongoing Brownfield activities including area -wide planning The department participated with MAPC in that agency's successful $5 million Regional Planning Sustainable Communities Grant application. A portion of those funds will be used to evaluate transportation issues associated with Technology Park. The extraordinary assistance and cooperation provided by other municipal and school departments have been instrumental in the C &ED's success in securing grants. Similarly, the department is available to provide direct staff support to divisions throughout the Town in identifying and preparing grant applications. Undertake Policy Analyses, Studies, Project Management, and Special Projects C &ED undertakes projects, prepares policy analyses, and coordinates inter- departmental projects. Some of these 2010 projects include the following: Planning & Economic Development 125 Town of Framingham Annual Report Sign Appeal Process Working Group C &ED participated in a staff level working group formed by the Board of Selectmen to review the sign appeal process. The working group met with stakeholders, commercial property owners and the Planning Board. The working group's recommendations were adopted by Town Meeting in May. Wireless Communication Facilities Working Group C &ED participated in a staff -level working group formed by the Board of Selectmen to review the wireless communications facility (WCF) zoning bylaw. The working group's recommendation was adopted by the Board of Selectmen in September. The working group will start meeting with a consultant in 2011 to review our WCF bylaw and identify how the needs of the wireless industry can be accommodated with least impact to our neighborhoods. Open Space Plan Implementation Committee C &ED staffs a committee that was formed to begin implementation of the 2008 Open Space and Recreation Plan. The committee's first task was to review the town's three aqueducts— Weston, Hultman, and Sudbury —and assess how best to improve their recreational use. The committee will continue to meet during the upcoming calendar year. Transportation C &ED works closely with DPW to insure that the Town's transportation improvement priorities are identified on the state's Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP), which is a prerequisite for federal and state funding. 2010 Cochituate Rail Trail (CRT C &ED is responsible for the design and ultimate construction of the 1.3 -mile CRT in Saxonville. Plans to enter into a 99 -year lease with the MBTA were replaced with acquisition of the property in February of 2010 in order to accommodate the DPW's East Framingham Sewer Improvement Project ( EFSIP). C &ED is working closely with DPW to coordinate design and construction activities along the rail trail. Design plans for the trail have been prepared and the project permitted by the Conservation Commission. The basic infrastructure of the trail is under construction as part of the EFSIP project. C &ED submitted applications for state transportation funds and the state awarded the Town $585,000 to complete the CRT. It is anticipated that the CRT will be completed in 2012. Bruce Freeman Rail Trail (BFEX C &ED manages the planning process to develop the Framingham component of the proposed 35 -mile rail trail that will extend from Lowell to Framingham. A 6.8 mile portion of the BFRT in Chelmsford opened in 2009. C &ED has been seeking grant funding as well as working with the regional committee representing all of the communities through which the trail will traverse. Subsidized Housing Inventory The Division carefully monitors the Town's status on the Commonwealth's Subsidized Housing Inventory (SHI) in order to insure that Framingham's subsidized housing units are accurately and fully counted. The Town's SHI remains in excess of 10 %, which limits the applicability of Chapter 40B Comprehensive Permits (subsidized housing development that is not subject to municipal Zoning Codes). The Division Planning & Economic Development 126 Town of Framingham Annual Report insured that the 150 units created by Jewish Community Housing for the Elderly at the Shillman House were incorporated into the inventory in a timely fashion. Provide Support to Town Committees C &ED provides staff support to several Town committees, including: Economic Development Industrial Corporation (EDICT The EDIC is charged with creating a pro- active capacity within the town to plan for and carry out economic development activities. The EDIC has participated in the Town's Brownfields Program and branding efforts. AgEicultural Advisory Committee (,LAC) The Committee, with staff support from C &ED, focused a great deal of its attention on creating a community garden in South Framingham in order to help stabilize the neighborhood, improve the health and nutrition of residents, serve as an educational vehicle, and build a sense of community. After evaluating more than 250 properties, the AAC identified a parcel owned by the Parks and Recreation Department. The Town's Brownfields Grants funded a title search and two environmental site assessments. The AAC and planning staff also worked with the Sudbury Valley Trustees to secure funding for the construction of the community garden. The AAC began work with the Parks and Recreation Department to develop plans to build and maintain the garden. The Committee also provided input to the Planning Board regarding Master Plan goals and policies, and reviewed and commented on farming - related bills pending before the State and Federal legislatures. 2010 Multiple Hazard Mitigation Planning Grou The C &ED Director serves on the group, which consists of representatives of various Town divisions as well as citizens. The group is responsible for overseeing the implementation of the Town's Multiple Hazard Mitigation Plan, required by the Federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. Consistent with federal requirements, the Group submitted an updated Plan and anticipates acceptance of the Plan during 2011. ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS Memorial Building, Room B2 (508)532- 5456 zba@framinghamma.gov The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) is the Permit Granting Authority and the Special Permit Granting Authority for those projects not meeting the requirements of the Framingham Zoning Bylaws. The ZBA's function is to approve or deny requests for variances and special permits, and issue findings through the public hearing process by determining if the required criteria, as stated in the Zoning Bylaw, have been met. In addition, the ZBA administers the Comprehensive Permit process for affordable housing as set forth under M.G.L. Chapter 40B. The ZBA is a three- member Board appointed by the Selectmen. In 2010, Full Members of the Board were Philip R. Ottaviani, Jr., Chair; Susan S. Craighead, Vice - Chair; and Stephen E. Meltzer, Clerk. Karl Thober, Edward (Ted) Cosgrove, Robert Snider and Kevin Gatlin served as Associate Members. Eugene Kennedy, Assistant Director of Community and Economic Development, continued his duties as ZBA Administrator. Mr. Kennedy prepared the Board's decisions and advised the Board on procedural and other issues. Alice Planning & Economic Development 127 Town of Framingham Annual Report Clapper continued her duties as Administrative Assistant. Town Counsel continued to advise the Board as required Fifty -two (52) petitions were filed with the ZBA office in 2010. Nine (9) petitions that were filed in 2009 were decided in 2010. This total of sixty -one (61) cases is 17% more than the fifty -two (52) cases processed in 2009. Of the sixty -one (61) cases heard in 2010, 11 were requests for variances, 36 for special permits, 5 for findings, 6 for variance & special permits, and 3 appeals of the decision of the Building Commissioner. Variance and special permit requests included those for relief from dimensional requirements for: construction of, and additions to, single family homes; placement of sheds on residential properties; construction of two- family residences, and automotive and restaurant uses; and changes of use for local businesses. Some of these filings were the outcome of changes in zoning districts in past years resulting in non- conforming lots. An additional responsibility that was delegated to the ZBA in 2010 was the Sign Appeal Process. Three Associate Members presided over sign appeal applications, with the fourth Member selected as the Alternate. Nine (9) applications were filed and decided. The hearings were held on the same evening as the regular ZBA meetings. The Board generally meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of every month at 7:00 P.M. in the Deborah D. Blumer Community Hearing Room. Members of the public are welcome and encouraged to attend ZBA meetings. 2010 COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND HOME PROGRAMS Since 1975, Framingham has received over 19 million dollars in Federal Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) funds. The Town also receives federal Home Investment Partnership Act (HOME) funds, which are directed exclusively to developing and rehabilitating residential units. In combination, the programs seek to: arrest deterioration in the housing stock and stabilize neighborhoods through financial and technical rehabilitation assistance to property owners; develop programs to preserve and expand affordable housing opportunities; eliminate architectural barriers; improve Town -owned facilities and infrastructure to prolong their useful lives and stabilize eligible neighborhoods; improve the quality of life for low and moderate income residents through the provision of social services; and administer the programs effectively and equitably to ensure that all members of the community can participate in or benefit from program activities. The following summarizes several major accomplishments during 2010: Housing Rehabilitation Assistance (HRAP) HRAP provides technical and financial assistance for the rehabilitation of housing units. Sixteen living units were helped or were in the process of being helped through HRAP assistance and related services through the provision of grants and loans to property owners who have low or moderate incomes or the majority of whose tenants have low or moderate incomes. HOME funds were also used to undertake the rehabilitation of four additional housing units. Staff provided administrative support in the Division's implementation of the Neighborhood Planning & Economic Development 128 Town of Framingham Annual Report Stabilization Program featuring the acquisition, rehabilitation, and resale of foreclosed and abandoned property. Homebuyer Assistance CDBG provided homeownership opportunities to income - eligible households with CDBG and HOME funds. Two households in the income range of 80 -100% of median family income became homeowners through the Program's referral of those households to the MassHousing Partnership Soft Second Loan Program. Code Enforcement The Program provides funding to conduct code - related inspections to properties located in eleven Census Block Groups, each with a population that predominantly has low or moderate incomes. Inspectional staff (with the equivalent of one full -time position made possible by CDBG funds) and one administrative staff person were employed by the Building Department. Staff speaks and understands Spanish and Portuguese. The Building Department maintains a data base on inspectional findings and then maps where problems are occurring. During the past program year, over 500 inspectional cases were initiated and closed. Public Facilities Improvements: Accessibility Adaptations CDBG grants continued to fund several handicapped accessibility improvements to the Memorial Building, including the installation of a new automated lift linking the first floor to the Union Avenue meeting room and office wing. The program also funded: the installation of new sidewalk and accessible curb cuts along Winthrop Street in the Coburnville neighborhood; construction of accessible 2010 sidewalks and a pedestrian crossing area; and renovation of water, sewer, and drainage connections and initial street resurfacing at the Rose Kennedy Lane Elderly Housing Complex. CDBG funds were allocated to study, design, and eventually construct an accessible entrance to the Village Hall. Funds were used to upgrade public parks and recreational facilities including the final phase of installation of more energy efficient and effective lighting in the heavily used Danforth Gymnasium, and the installation of new play equipment and landscaping to complement a newly developed family play area at Butterworth Park. Facade & Sign Improvement Program Assistance was offered to business and property owners as well as merchants located in and around Framingham's central business district and surrounding commercial core in order to undertake facade, signage, and storefront improvements. One sign improvement project was completed and while three other local businesses were assisted with funds to help design new signage that will be installed at a later date. Public Services The following initiatives were undertaken with CDBG funds to serve youth: a summer employment and counseling program (Community Connections Summer Work Program); and a special program for high school students who faced issues that have impeded their ability to learn and achieve (Resiliency for Life). CDBG- funded adult programs included: literacy training (Literacy Unlimited); English -as -a- Second Language (Framingham Adult ESL Plus); and limited financial assistance to prevent homelessness (Homeless Prevention Planning & Economic Development 129 Town of Framingham Annual Report Program). Over 400 individuals were served by the activities. Subsidized Housing Support HOME funds supported subsidized housing projects including: Shillman House OCHE) design costs (10 housing units), FHA Memorial House design costs (10 units), and FHA Rose Kennedy Lane rehabilitation (14 units placed under agreement). 2010 Administration Administration of both the CDBG and HOME Programs is staff intensive and requires diligence to identify relevant regulations and to abide by those regulations. CDBG and HOME funding fully pay for staff assigned to manage the programs. Respectfully Submitted, Alison C. Steinfeld, Director Division of Community & Economic Development A W IML Planning Board Memorial Building, Rm B37 1508-532-5450 1 planning.board @framinghamma.gov The Planning Board strives to work with both project proponents and the public to shape projects that minimize impacts to the community while accommodating new growth. Such growth provides excellent employment opportunities and a growing tax base to the Town. Framingham continues to be an attractive market for significant new development, as well as reuse of existing sites. Highlights of the year and of the range of projects before the Planning Board in 2010 are provided below: THE BOARD The five (5) present Board members are Susan P. Bernstein, Andrea Carr - Evans, Christine Long, Thomas F. Mahoney and Carol J. Spack. On April 15, 2010, the Board elected officers Andrea Carr -Evans to the position of Chair, Susan P. Bernstein to serve as Vice - Chair, and Christine Long as Clerk. The Planning Board Office is staffed with three employees. John W. Grande served as Planning Board Director. Mary Ruth Reynolds served as Administrative Assistant. Amanda Loomis served as the Associate Program Planner. In calendar year 2010, the Board held 46 regular meetings and 34 additional meetings (working sessions, site visits or joint meetings with other Boards or Commissions or neighborhood groups. The Board held public hearings and meetings to consider applications for; 9 Site Plan Review Approvals, 7 Special Permits, 3 Minor Modifications to Approved Site Plans, 6 Public Way Access Permits, 3 Sign Waivers, 11 Approval Not Required Plans, 2 Modifications to a Scenic Road and 1 Modification to a Subdivision Plan. APPROVED PROJECTS TD Bank, 900 Edgell Road The Applicant, TD Bank, proposes to construct a new branch bank with a drive - thru facility on the property known as 900 Edgell Road. The plan, as presented, provides for the demolition of the existing gasoline repair facility. The proposal will also eliminate an existing driveway along Edgell Road. As a result of requests for changes from the Planning Board and its Planning & Economic Development 130 Town of Framingham Annual Report consultant, the building was both reduced in size and moved closer to the intersection. The result of that change was a reduction of approximately 1,000 square feet in the size of the building and the drive -thru facility was reduced to provide for only two drive -thru lanes. Other changes to the plans included more landscaping, pedestrian improvements and public amenity space improvements. The final Plan includes pedestrian access on Edgell Road, Edmands Road, and at the intersection of Edmands and Edgell Road. A bike rack is also provided, along with public benches. The Applicant responded to the request of the Planning Board to consider changes to the building style and architecture. Additional changes were made to create a peak roof line were also implemented, along with window changes to create a more traditional appearance in keeping with the Board's planned design for the Nobscot Area. The Congress Group, 923, 933, and 937 Pennsylvania Avenue The Applicant, Framingham CFII, LP, proposes to demolish the existing vacant structures consisting of the building at 125 Pennsylvania Avenue an 84,000 square foot building that was constructed in the 1960s, with expansion projects undertaken in 1965 and 1979, and previously contained manufacturing and distribution space for the International Paper Company. The building at 135 Pennsylvania Avenue a single story, 20,000 square foot office building constructed in 1967 and the building at 137 Pennsylvania Avenue a 10,000 square foot office building constructed in 1970, which was occupied by Number One Insurance Agency, Inc. until December 31, 2008 totaling approximately 10 acres. The project will consist of the construction of two six -story structures, each containing approximately 169,500 2010 square feet of research and development, office and /or laboratory space. The two tower structures will be connected with a common lobby and share certain mechanical systems. The structures will also share amenities, including a food service facility and fitness center for use by building employees. Parking for the project will be provided in an adjacent five -level parking garage containing approximately 1,218 parking spaces, as well as 27 surface parking spaces. The project plans, including the building, architectural, landscaping, lighting, drainage and access and circulation plans, as well as the traffic impact, impact on the Town's water and sewer systems, and mitigation program to address project impacts. Learning Centerfor the Deaf, 848 Central Street The Applicant, The Learning Center for the Deaf, Inc. ( "The Learning Center "), stated that the need for the project was due to an increasing number of students and that the faculty- student ratio has increased significantly over the years. The current buildings that comprise The Learning Center's campus are inadequate to accommodate the existing programs. The proposed project is the demolition of an existing building on Kellogg Street and the construction of a new, larger building in the same location. The existing building has a footprint of 4,593 square feet and a gross floor area of 9,186 square feet. The proposed building will have a footprint of approximately 9,875 square feet and a gross floor area of approximately 19,750 square feet. The building will be used by The Learning Center as an early childhood development center and will contain classrooms and related facilities, and a library. The other component of the project is the construction of a new, off - street parking lot. The parking lot will have a single entrance /exit on Kellogg Planning & Economic Development 131 Town of Framingham Annual Report Street, and will contain 35 parking spaces In order to minimize drainage impacts, a portion of the parking lot will be constructed with a new type of porous pavement known as Flexi -Pave. Framingham Water Resource Facility, River Path Drive The Applicant, Framingham Public Works Departments, proposes the reactivation of an existing public water supply well site and construction of a new water treatment facility to treat the groundwater as a source of potable water for continued use by the Town of Framingham. The Project will consist of approximately 36,000 square feet of new construction with landscaping, lighting and parking improvements for a new Water Resource Center (WRC). The WRC will primarily function as a treatment facility. The proposed withdrawal from the well site is 1,570 million gallons per year, which represents an average daily withdrawal of 4.3 million gallons. The site is located off River Path Drive in the northeastern area of Framingham. The WRC will incorporate a learning center to allow school tours and provide an educational opportunity for the Town of Framingham. In addition, the Project is planned to eventually include a trail system throughout the property to allow for passive recreation activities. McDonald's Restaurant, 343 Cochituate Road The Applicant, McDonald's Corporation, proposes to raze the existing building and construct a new restaurant with a patio area approximately the same size as the existing structure. They also intend to reduce the parking field, upgrade the landscaping, and change site circulation. The Applicant stated that new 6,100 square foot restaurant would improve site circulation by reconfiguring the parking 2010 field and reduce impervious surface coverage through new landscaping and reducing the parking count to 64 spaces. They also proposed to create a double drive -thru to mitigate queuing issues. The proposal will also bring signage into compliance with the new Sign By -law. The building elevations were revised to incorporate more architectural features. LaCantina Restaurant, 911 Vavery Street The Applicant, 918 Waverly Street Realty Trust, Nine -04 Waverly Street Realty Trust, Nine -11 Waverly Street Realty Trust, and Lee Realty Trustees, propose the construction of an addition to the restaurant facility. The total area of the proposed addition and the second floor expansion (346 square feet) results in a total increase of 3,840 square feet. The second floor is being converted to a function area with 90 seats. The changes will also result in an increase in the seating for the restaurant patrons of 43. Changes to the property located at 904 and 920 Waverly Street parking lot are also proposed. The changes to the parking lot include the installation of a new drainage system, bollards, signage significant landscaping and the elimination of one driveway on Waverly Street. Oak Knoll Long Health Care Center 9 & I I Arbetter Drive The Applicant, Arbetter Associates Limited Partnership, propose to expand the existing parking area by twenty -six 26 parking spaces for the existing long term health care facility, "Oak Knoll ". The additional parking is to alleviate overflow of parking that is taking place on the access driveway. Eliminating traffic along the access driveway will improve on -site traffic safety eliminating potential traffic conflicts. The proposed modifications to the parking layout increased setbacks, improved landscape buffers and reduced Planning & Economic Development 132 Town of Framingham Annual Report impervious coverage. The landscaping improvements associated with the parking field will mitigate the impact of vehicle headlights and partially screen the parking area from abutters. The parking lot lighting will be upgraded, but kept at a residential scale. International Vine Vault, 428 Franklin Street The Applicant, International Wine Vault, LLC, purchased the property at 428 Franklin Street. The premises consist of a retail building constructed in 1965, off - street parking and a driveway providing vehicular access to and from Franklin Street. The building was the former site of White's Hardware. The proposed project consists of the renovation and re- use of the building as warehouse and storage use. The primary use will be for climate - controlled, wine storage areas.

F. Wireless Communication - Facilities, establish Temporary Moratorium SPECIAL PLANNING STUDIES Town wide Master Plan In relation to preparation of a Master Plan, M.G.L, Chapter 41 �81D states, "A planning board established in a city or town or such part or parts thereof as said board may deem advisable and from time to time may extend or perfect such plan ". In 2007, the Board began the development of Framingham's first comprehensive Master Plan since 1988. The Board completed the first phase of the Master Plan and published the Baseline Conditions Report, which is available online. The commencement of the second phase of the Master Plan was delayed, due to lack of funding. Town Meeting approved the appropriation of unassigned mitigation funds to complete the Master Plan. The Board has engaged the Cecil Group to complete the plan. The Cecil Group has held meetings with Board members and with other stakeholders. The draft goals and policies with implementation strategies were completed in 2010. The Planning Board recently posted an electronic survey to solicit additional Planning & Economic Development 133 Town of Framingham Annual Report public input for the Master Plan. The Master Plan is anticipated to be presented at the fall 2011 Town Meeting. Comprehensive Improvement Plan for the Framingham Technology Park The Board, as a condition of their site plan approval for Genzyme's Biologics Support Center and with the agreement of Genzyme Corporation, initiated a planning process to develop a comprehensive improvement plan for the Framingham Technology Park. The Board engaged Terra Tech Rizzo to provide develop the plan. The planning process is a collaborative effort between town officials and park owners and tenants. The plan evaluates the sufficiency of current infrastructure to meet the forecasted development needs and will explore options for substantially upgrading the appearance of the Park in a comprehensive and cohesive manner. The plan will, in a specific way, provide an overall vision for the Framingham Technology Park and define expectations related to streetscape elements such as lighting, signage, pedestrian accommodations and landscaping so that as the Park is upgraded through public grants or private initiatives it is done in a manner consistent with a documented plan. The plan address broader issues related to transportation and utility infrastructure and emergency services in a more general way, focusing on identifying current and future system deficiencies and potential solutions. The draft plan was issued in 2010 and the final plan is expected to be completed before the end of the calendar year. 2010 ADMINISTRATION The Board has continued to work with the Town Treasurer's Office to require prospective developers to obtain certification from the Town's Treasurer /Tax Collector that no local taxes, fees, assessments or other municipal charges are outstanding prior to submission of an application. As a result of this process, many applicants have been obligated to bring unsettled accounts up to date before the Board would consider their development proposals. Since first employed in May of 1993, this noteworthy process has been a source of substantial uncollected taxes for the Town. By the end of calendar year 2010, $2,268,388.07 had been collected to date. The Board continues to improve the website to increase availability of the information to the public. The Zoning By -Law and Subdivision Regulations are available for downloading and printing to make the document more widely available to the public. The Board continues to post on the website zoning amendments, which are current through Annual Town Meeting 2010, weekly agendas and approved minutes. Submissions for larger projects review are available on the Board's website. A specific Master Plan webpage is also available, which provides citizens the ability to keep updated on the status of the Plan, find out where and when public participation sessions will occur and be able to provide comments or questions from this page. A webpage is also available for the Comprehensive Infrastructure Improvement Plan for the Framingham Technology Park. Once projects are approved, the Board also ensures that they conform to the conditions of approval by conducting Planning & Economic Development 134 Town of Framingham Annual Report conformance reviews during the permitting and construction phases for approved projects. In calendar year 2010, the Board collected a total of $16,551.20 in revenue from associated project review fees and from the sale of Zoning By -Laws, Zoning Maps, Subdivision Rules and Regulations, and minor miscellaneous revenues. The projects reviewed by the Board will create hundreds of construction jobs. The Board secured through the development review process off -site mitigation infrastructure improvements valued at $2,910,000. Upon occupancy of these projects, the net increase in positive tax flow over a five year period to be realized 2010 by the Town is expected to be $7,298,000.00. In addition to these contributions to the General Fund, the Planning Board obtains significant Town -wide amenities through the process of negotiated mitigation. In the course of its review the Planning Board requires applicants to provide improvements such as roadway widening and reconstruction, signalization, enhancements for public transportation and landscaping to offset adverse project impacts. In calendar year 2010 the Board received $74,000.00 in direct mitigation performance guarantees and payments. Respectfully submitted, Andrea Carr- Evans, Chair MetroWest Regional Collaborative (MWRCI 160 Waverley Street, Framingham, MA 01702 1508-620-6677 1 djacobs @mapc.org The MetroWest Regional Collaborative (MWRC) held a full schedule of Committee meetings in 2010, at which local officials from our nine MetroWest communities discussed transportation planning and priorities for state funding, grant programs for municipalities, zoning reform, and other regional planning issues. The MWRC heard presentations on a number of issues including the 126 Study, the MPO's TIP process and Long Range Transportation Plan, and The Boston Region's Pedestrian Transportation Plan. MWRC hosted a well attended Spring Legislative Breakfast at the Crowne Plaza in Natick. Guest speakers included Sen. James Eldridge and Rep. Paul Donato as well as a strong showing from the MetroWest delegation. Topics included the Municipal Relief Bill, Zoning Reform, the Economic Development Bill and the Casino Legislation. Several other special meetings were held including a forum regarding the potential land use impacts of a proposed casino in MetroWest and a forum on the Route 9 repaving project. Two regional public forums were held in December to review ideas for regional open space connectivity. At the Annual Meeting /Dinner in June, the MetroWest Growth Management Committee celebrated its 25th year serving MetroWest. Secretary of Housing and Economic Development Gregory Bialecki announced the 495 Development Compact Project, an important initiative for MetroWest. New Director, Bruce Leish, delivered a retrospective of the past 25 years of the MetroWest Growth Management Committee and offered a vision for the future, including a new name and logo, more reflective of the organization's mission of regional Planning & Economic Development 135 Town of Framingham Annual Report collaboration in both planning and municipal services and more proactive approach to fostering sustainable communities. Technical Assistance work continued on studies that included Ashland and Hopkinton sharing Fire Services; Natick and Sherborn collaborating on engineering services, solid waste and recycling; a new cell tower zoning bylaw for Ashland; the Route 9 Corridor Build - out Analysis Phase 2; and a MetroWest Regional Open Space Connectivity Plan. The Nyanza study and public outreach campaign for a Superfund site on the Sudbury River was completed and 2010 included a multilingual web site warning of the dangers of eating the fish. The study was funded by the MetroWest Community Health Care Foundation which also funded a three -year study to implement shared Board of Health services between Ashland, Hopkinton, Medway and Holliston. The Wellesley Pre Disaster Mitigation Plan was also completed. MWRC was awarded a Shannon Grant on behalf of Ashland and Framingham for prevention of youth violence. A new permanent office was established in the Ashland Town Hall. Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPCO 60 Temple Place, Boston, MA 021111617-451-2770 1 mdraisen @mapc.org Please see MW RC report above (7 Metrowest Regional Transit Authority (MWRTA� 91 160 Waverley Street, Framingham, MAO 17021 508 - 935 -2222 1 ed @mwrta.com The MetroWest RTA was created by a vote of the Framingham and the Ashland Boards of Selectman in December of 2006. By the summer of 2007, seven additional communities had joined, a budget and fares were put in place, and an Administrator was hired to oversee the daily operation of the LIFT which had been under the Framingham Planning Department. MWRTA "fixed route" service was then initiated on December 1s`, 2007 with a new contracted provider and 10 new buses obtained from Federal and State grants. At the same time, the MWRTA was paying the MBTA to continue its RIDE service in the Framingham and Natick area. In 2008, the original Framingham LIFT and the Natick Neighborhood bus routes were integrated into a unified transit system. That year, Marlborough and Southborough joined MWRTA, expanding demand response service delivery by 2,000 rides a month. In 2009, the Authority, through a Federal grant, expanded again to create a link to the Woodland MBTA Station in Newton (Route #1) setting the stage for using the Charlie Card system wide. Additionally, the Authority took over the MBTA's RIDE provision in Framingham and Planning & Economic Development 136 Town of Framingham Annual Report Natick expanding again the demand response provision by another 5,000 rides a month. In 2010, the Authority, using state and federal funds, purchased and rehabilitated a facility at 37 Waverly St. which will serve as the "Hub" and maintenance depot for the system. Growth of the system is supported by a staff dedicated to personal, friendly and helpful service to every customer. This focus on customer service has been augmented by the Authority's leadership in the use of technology to provide reliability and convenience. Route #1, as mentioned above, is MetroWest's link to the MBTA's Green Line. Routes #2 and #3, which loop entirely within Framingham, are the most highly traveled routes; consistently averaging over 4,000 rides a month. Route #4 connects Market Basket to the 2010 Shopper's World /Mall area and provides service to the Beaver Street neighborhood. Route # 5 connects Framingham to Hopkinton, Route 6 connects Framingham to Holliston, and Route #7, which also consistently averages over 4,000 rides a month, connects Framingham to Southborough and Marlborough. Route #9 is a component of Route #1 during the commuter hours and runs exclusively on Route 9 during the off commute hours. The MWRTA will continue to build upon the over 400,000 rides provided in FY10 by using technology, an emphasis on customer service and the more effective and efficient delivery of transportation service.

The Annual Town Meeting voted for an annual operating budget of $2,179,523 for Parks Administration, Maintenance and Recreation. This was a 3% reduction of a level funded budget which resulted in the decrease of $81,000 in the Maintenance Budget and $42,000 in the Recreation Budget. Particularly hit hard were the summer special needs camps that were forced to reduce the number of weeks, increase fees, and reduce overall services including transportation. The Department was proud to re open the Bowditch Field Athletic and Cultural Complex that was renovated via a 2007 Town Meeting appropriation. The new state of the art facility includes seating for 5100 people, a handicapped accessible press box, home and away locker rooms and bathrooms that are highlighted with decorative block wall construction. There is also an improved image to the streetscape along Union Avenue. The unique design of three historical walls inside the plaza contains interpretive signage and captures the history of the property. The project was finished on time and under budget. Due to the construction at Bowditch Field, the ever popular Wednesday night Track program was held at Framingham State College. In addition, the traditional Framingham High School Graduation was re- located to the beautiful Cushing Memorial Park. A grant through Parkland Acquisition and Renovations for Communities (PARC) in the amount of $279,000 was used to complete the fourth phase of Cushing Memorial Park. Argus Construction was awarded the contract and implemented many park improvements designed by Weston and Sampson Engineering. A main promenade, pergola seating area, a new pedestrian entrance from Winter Street and additional tree plantings are some of the parks new attributes. Capital funding included a new Bobcat Skid Steer to be used for the daily maintenance of the parks, Furber Playground improvements scheduled for late 2011, and computerized irrigation throughout the parks predicted to save both money and water for the Town. Farm Pond Park was improved with a new handicapped accessible playground with monies provided by the Disabilities Commission; the new play structure is scheduled to open in 2011. Other alternative resources included Community Development Block Grant money to build an additional parking area at the new and improved Butterworth Park, and monies from the Recreation & Cultural Affairs 139 Town of Framingham Metropolitan Area Planning Council "Bike Rack Grant" which supplied 43 bike racks in 16 locations throughout the Town. The Department continues to do the best they can with the resources they are given. It is a goal of all Divisions to seek and provide a high standard to the quality of life for the residents of the Town. We would like to thank Town Meeting, the many Town boards, committees, departments and volunteers for supporting our services. We would also like to thank the hundreds of user organizations for their continued support. Barry Bograd Chair, Park and Recreation Commission; Robert L. Merusi, Director, Parks and Recreation Recreation Division The highlight of 2010 was the Grand Opening Celebration of the Bowditch Field Athletic and Cultural Complex. This 3 -day community event was held on Columbus Day weekend. Events included a Walk for Health Relay, the Framingham High School Flyers football game vs. Norwood, an all day cultural exposition included artisans, food vendors, and musicians featuring Arlo Guthrie as the headliner. The event closed on Monday with many of the Framingham youth sports groups playing in the new stadium. We thank our many sponsors and volunteers, in particular the Metro West Medical Center and the Framingham Cooperative Bank, for the success of the weekend. The three town beaches saw one of the highest attendance records in years. The near perfect weather brought over 13,000 visitors during the eight week season. New programs included an over 40 Men's Basketball League, additional preschool classes, and Adult Tai Chi. 2010 Annual Report The new Park & Rec Update Cable show hosted by Barry Bograd featured many of the department's programs. Once again we are thankful to the many successful grants that enhanced our 2010 programs. The Department of Public Health and the State of Massachusetts provided funding for continued Youth at Risk programming. Future Skill funded two summer counselors for our Recreation Centers and Project Bread and the United States Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service provided equipment and free breakfast and lunch for the Recreation Special Needs Program. The 215 member Framingham Swim Team coached by Joey Sementelli and assisted by Kristen Shippee, Aubrey Courville, Keith Savran, and Chris Peterson had a record of 9 — 1 this summer. The loss was their first in three years as the team placed 2nd to Newton; however, FST won the mile swim again this year. Unfortunately, Joey is leaving the department to pursue his education goals. His enthusiasm and dedication will be difficult to replace. The PAL basketball league led by Director, Tom Click, once again challenged the New England Patriots Kevin Faulk, Darius Butlers and Pierre Woods in an exciting game of Basketball with the win going to the young PAL league. The department, assisted by the Friends of Framingham Recreation, sponsored the following special events this year; The Bowditch Grand Opening, a Brazilian Masters Soccer Game, Pumpkins in the Park, the 911 Remembrance Ceremony and the bi- annual Thanksgiving Bonfire (highlighting Selectmen Dennis Giombetti as the honorary "Fire Starter" and assisted by other members of his Board) Other memorable events included Fox 25 Morning News crew broadcasting their Zip Recreation & Cultural Affairs 140 Town of Framingham Trip segment from Cushing Memorial Park. Also, the Opening Ceremonies for the Susan Koman 3 Day Cancer Walk was held at Farm Pond. We would like to thank the Town Selectmen, Town Meeting Members, Town Staff, and numerous community volunteers for their constant support and dedication. Without your endless continued support, we would not be successful in offering our quality programs to the residents of Framingham. Trisha Powell, Superintendent of Recreation; Robert L. Merusi, Director, Parks and Recreation Parks Maintenance The Parks Maintenance Division provides safe and well maintained facilities for over 14,700 formally scheduled events each year through our pro- active management plans. Our user groups have become accustomed to a high level of quality in our facilities. Using this pro- active approach enables us to coordinate the use of labor, materials, and equipment to provide a cost effective sports turf maintenance program for this department. Through this maintenance program we have been able to maintain the great condition of our high use turf areas. Our program continues to use a balanced system of aeration, fertilization, seeding, mowing, with proper irrigation in the most cost effective manner. We continue to monitor our soil conditions and provide the necessary nutrient applications as needed. This has benefited all of our high use turf areas. We continue to be asked to provide additional practice and game field facilities. The demand is constant and there are few alternatives to turn to. Over use of facilities and the decline in turf quality is still a major problem and concern for us. The strategy of field rotation and limiting use has worked in the past, but once again we are being challenged for not 2010 Annual Report having enough space for all our groups. We are still seeing a growing increase in participation of some of the seasonal sports. We have had to look at ways to change how and where some of the nontraditional user groups are being scheduled. There is a definite need to look at some long range plans for future field space. Until this happens we will continue to be asked to provide more use on areas that are already seeing heavy use. As we have noted in the past, this overuse accelerates the need to shut down fields for costly renovations. The second phase of field renovations at Fuller Field was completed in the early summer. This included stripping out the old asphalt basketball courts, grading, installation of additional irrigation lines re- grading with added excess material from the Bowditch Field project, then fertilizing/ seeding. This project was accomplished with town and contracted resources. By completing this phase we will increase the size of this athletic area to allow more activity and the ability for further field rotation. We hope to have this section of the field usable by the fall of 2011 Our Maintenance Department continues to provide support to the athletic programs of three high schools, Framingham High, Marian High and Keefe Vocational High School. Other schools that rely on our department for a portion of their athletic program needs are, Framingham State University and Mass. Bay Community College. In addition to school athletics, the Department provides scheduling and facilities for hundreds of other user groups from the Framingham Community. Our working relationship with Keefe Technical School continues to enable our department to complete some major projects. The plumbing lab installed new pneumatic air lines in the new M/O buildings. The metals lab built a portable work station. The electrical lab provided labor to begin the initial stages for the Butterworth Tennis Light Project. This is a CDBG project that has been divided Recreation & Cultural Affairs 141 Town of Framingham into two projects one for infrastructure and a second phase to relight the tennis courts. This mutually beneficial relationship provides the Town of Framingham with access to cost effective, professionally supervised, electrical, carpentry, plumbing, and metal fabrication, while affording students the benefit of practical "real world" learning experiences in a commercial setting. The Butterworth Park improvements that our staff had begun the previous year continued this past year. With CDBG funding, we have established a new parking area inside of the park and ground and regraded the old roadway. We are planning on paving the parking area this spring. Through our Capital Budget program we were able to purchase a skid steer loader with some turf construction attachments. One of the attachments is a snow blower which as useful in clearing the sidewalks at Bowditch Field after the heavy snow storms this past winter. This type of equipment will enable us to successfully carry out turf type construction projects. We are currently working on finalizing the completion of the Bowditch Field Grandstand/ Stadium project. There is still a small punch list of work that will need to be finished as we come into the spri ng. The successful completion of this project was captured in the October grand opening celebration. Our other Capital projects are in the final stages of planning. The computerization of our irrigations systems should be completed by early summer; and we hope to have a handicap accessible play area at Furber Park completed. Our tree maintenance program continues at a much smaller scale. We will continue our removal program, concentrating on hazardous trees and trees with obvious structural defects. We are hoping we can keep up with this program in some form in the future. The Town wide beautification program we have 2010 Annual Report been following continues to be a successful collaboration with our department and outside groups willing to make donations to upgrade and beautify road side areas with the ability to advertise their donations. I would like to thank all our volunteers and volunteer groups that supplied us with help on projects this past year. Their support was tremendous. We continue to give support and resources to other Town departments including the School Department, Building Services, Public Works and Conservation. We would like to thank all of the Town departments for the cooperation they have provided throughout the year. It would be very difficult for us to achieve the success we have without their help. Chris McGinty, Superintendent, Parks Maintenance; Robert L. Merusi, Director, Parks & Recreation Cemeteries The Cemetery Commissioners Robert Brown and Kevin Salvi elected Barry Bograd as Chairman at its meeting of November 16, 2010. Commercial Services of Ashland is in the final year of a three year contract.. This contract is to perform the routine grounds maintenance for Edwards Cemetery, Main St. Cemetery, and Old South Cemetery. The Parks Maintenance staff continues to perform grave openings. There were five burials, seven cremations at Edwards and one cremation at the Main Street Cemetery during the year. There is a moratorium on the general sale of new lots which is still in effect.. Fee schedules for associated cemetery activities are up to date, and on par with surrounding communities. There continues to be an increase in requests for historical records associated with cemetery activities. Recreation & Cultural Affairs 142 Town of Framingham The Cemetery Commission consists of a three member board appointed by the Board of Selectmen. Report submitted on behalf of the Cemetery Commission by: Christopher A. McGinty, Superintendent, Parks & Recreation Cemetery Commission Barry Bograd Chairman Robert Brown Kevin Salvi Loring Skating Arena Loring Arena Loring Arena is in its 48` year of operation. In addition to our normal services, we are continuing to create a user - friendly atmosphere. The Loring Arena Committee members are appointed as an advisory board. The members appointed by the Board of Selectmen this year were co- chairs Joe Tersom and David Friday, and John Hart, Jack Jagher, Bob Brown, Richard Callahan and Joan Rastani. Significant upgrades were made to the cooling system of the Arena including a 2nd new electric motor to replace the 30 year old motor. A new "bull's eye" column was installed on the chiller, with new oil drains, to maximize the efficiency. Savings to the Town are approximately 2000kwh. American Refrigeration replaced a section of perimeter piping on the main supply line, which was 2010 Annual Report showing significant corrosion. The Loring Arena staff drained and reinstalled approximately 1,500 gallons of glycol from the piping, saving approximately $2,000. A lightning storm hit the power line poles during the summer of 2010 resulting in a power outage for the entire arena. The entire 600 amp electrical panel was replaced. Two of the original entrance doors from 1963 were replaced by new insulated, energy efficient and up to code doors which were installed by New England School Services. Infrared heat was installed to the spectator areas. Patrons can access the middle sections of the heat by a coin operated system, with controls and overrides located in the main office. We have had nothing but rave reviews from patrons for the heated sections in the spectator seating. This $100,000 project was completed with a contribution from the Framingham Co- operative Bank and a $48,000 rebate from NStar for a total project cost to the taxpayers of less than $45,000. The Loring Arena Legacy Foundation raised $7,037 to defer the cost of replacing the 30 year old sound system. The new sound system was installed by Muzak and included 12 new speakers, 1000watt power amp, IPod dock, CD player, wireless microphone, 2 remote controllers (office & timekeepers box), and satellite music for public skating. A new 42" LCD monitor was installed in the arena lobby for all patrons to see when entering the building. Information on Parks & Recreation services, arena schedules, arena updates and town information is continually displayed on this monitor. Free Wi -Fi was also added to the arena, which has been much appreciated by patrons and parents using the facility.

Recreation & Cultural Affairs 144 Town of Framingham OPERATIONS Our role as an "aging agency" must be continually reviewed and updated. We address issues raised by ethnic diversity, an increasing population of 85 plus and those "aging in place ". The 2010 census shows an increase in the aging population. We realize that we have a growing multi - lingual, multi- cultural population who wants to be integrated into the programs and services of the Center. Once again, we invited those ninety and older to come and re- acquaint themselves with the Center. We utilized the Joseph P. Keefe Technical High School to partner with us. This wonderful event honors those who have contributed so much in building this community. The Center provides numerous programs and services with a Town of Framingham budget of $340,313, along with State and private foundation grants.

School Committee budget discussions centered on the question: How can we provide the best possible education for all our students within available funding? Given projected revenues, expected levels of state and federal funding and increased expenses, the School Committee determined that a level service budget was not feasible. As the FYI budget deliberation began, a budget gap of approximately $10.3 million In addition, the School Committee scaled back school transportation services and expanded student- walking distances with a plan to provide transportation to Grades K -6 students who live 2 miles or more from school who by state statute are eligible for busing at no charge. Grades 7 -12 students who lived 2 miles or more from school would continue to be bused for a $270 fee per student per year with an annual family cap of $540. The decision resulted in a reduction of 10 school buses and drivers and savings of $500,000. existed between the School Committee's initial budget and the Town's projected budget appropriation to the schools. On May 18, 2010 School Committee Chair Michael Bower and member David Miles announced that an agreement had been reached with the Framingham Teachers Association for concessions amounting to over $600,000 in savings or nearly 1.2% of salary. The savings allowed the School Committee to avoid having to consider school closings at a critical point in the budget development process. In late May 2010, Town Meeting approved an FYI budget appropriation of $88,695,969, which included a one -time allocation of $400,000 from the incremental increase in FY11 Local Meals and Room Tax receipts. To balance the FY11 budget, the School Committee cut more than 50 positions; class sizes increased; and class offerings were reduced. Support personnel and specialty As the 2010/2011 school year began, it became clear to the School Committee that its transportation plan was not sustainable because it did not meet the needs of school families. In September, the School Committee decided to offer a limited, fee -based busing option for families who lived within the 2- mile parameters. It was agreed that any additional buses provided should be revenue neutral because there were no operating funds available to pay for the program. Hundreds of families who lived within the 2 mile state standard applied for and received school bus transportation for a fee of $270 per year with an annual family cap of $540. By early November, the district met its goal to provide bus transportation to previously ineligible students. Consolidation of School and Town Payroll Function On May 12, 2010, the School Committee Education & Libraries 147 Town of Framingham voted, pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws c.71 Section 37M, to consolidate the School and Town payroll function so that the processing function is absorbed within the Town's Finance Division under the supervision of the Town Accountant. Upon Town Meeting vote, the consolidation plan became effective July 1, 2010. The School Committee is committed to working with the Board of Selectman and Town Meeting in evaluating future consolidation opportunities with the goal of efficiency being preeminent. The Laramie Project On Friday December 3rd and Saturday December 4` the Framingham Drama Company and nearly 30 adult members of the community performed a spellbinding rendition of The Laramie Project before standing room only crowds at Framingham High School. Under the guidance and direction of Donna Wresinski the cast recounted the events leading up to and following the brutal murder of gay college student Matthew Shepard in Laramie Wyoming in October 1998. This controversial play written by Moises Kaufman sparked a community wide dialogue on tolerance, acceptance, and the need to address the many forms of bullying faced by so many young people, particularly those in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. Donna Wresinski summed it up best when she said "The Laramie Project, along with `The Framingham Project — A Love is Louder Campaign' allows us to look at our own community and to articulate who we want to be as a community without having to live through the pain and anguish so many people in Laramie survived. Through this play and the events of the last month, we can say with pride that we are not afraid to look at our community and say we have HOPE; HOPE for the present through the community members who chose to get involved by 2010 Annual Report participating or supporting the play, HOPE for the future through these talented high school students, and HOPE for the power of the Arts in our schools and community. Thank you for being the brave and committed community of Framingham. I am proud to call it my home." Preceding the Saturday December 4, 2010 performance there was a candlelight vigil on the steps of Framingham High School in support of tolerance and acceptance. Many community leaders participated in the vigil including State Representatives Pam Richardson and Tom Sannicandro, State Representative -elect Chris Walsh, Selectmen Dennis Giombetti and Laurie Lee, Town Clerk Valerie Mulvey, School Committee Members Michael Bower, Adam Blumer, David Miles, Richard Finlay and Carol Phalen and Finance Committee Member Betty Funk. Town /School Budget Summit In December, the Board of Selectmen hosted a Town /School FY12 Budget Summit. Town and School officials heard CFO Mary Ellen Kelley's FY12 revenue projection. Town and School officials plan to reconvene in March or Anil 2011, when the state budget figures are available. Superintendent Hiersche summarized School Committee concerns for the future including (1) maintaining the quality of education expected in Framingham; (2) the ability to attract and retain talented professionals; (3) the ability to build a 21s` Century school system; and (4) ever increasing fees for families. A Commitment to Public Information and Transparency In 2010, the School Committee continued its on- going, long -term commitment to providing public information in as transparent a means as possible by expanding the use of the district web -site, standardizing a variety of financial documents reviewed at Finance Subcommittee meetings, developing grant reporting tools as suggested by the Town Finance Committee, and including public Education & Libraries 148 Town of Framingham participation in the school bus bid specification process. During 2010, the School Committee significantly expanded the documentation posted on the FPS website. The School Committee page now includes a new "Financial and District Data" tab that contains budget materials and presentations dating back to FY06; current in -force school union contracts; enrollment statistics since school year 2007, an English Language Learner (ELL) Report; a Special Education Report; the 10 -year Facilities Plan, and the FY12 Capital Budget requests. While all of this information was publicly available in the past, this consolidation of information on the website significantly improves its accessibility for the public. The Finance Subcommittee of the School Committee meets in open session on a monthly basis to review various financial reports routinely generated by school staff and in some cases those requested by the Town Finance Committee. School Committee member Adam Blumer has provided outstanding leadership as Convener of the Finance Subcommittee for the past two years. Members David Miles and Richard Finlay have contributed enormously to the efforts of the Finance Subcommittee bringing to the table many years of School Committee and Town Meeting experience. The School Committee expresses its sincere thanks to Business Operations Director Ed Gotgart and School Accountant Melissa Dunnet for their expertise in providing these materials to us in an easy, understandable format. In October, the Administration convened a School Bus Bid Specification Working Group which included representation from the Town and the community with a goal to develop competitive bid specifications for FPS busing services that would increase the attractiveness of the bid and result in more qualified bidders. The School Committee supported the Administration's efforts to ensure full 2010 Annual Report transparency for the district's school bus bid process, and the success of this effort was manifested in the receipt of three bids from qualified vendors. The School Committee remains committed to continuously and aggressively broaden the public's access to information through the use of ever evolving technologies and communication mechanisms. As always, we remain committed to consider suggestions from the public relative to this matter. Policy In 2010, the School Committee embarked on a comprehensive review of its Policy Manual working together with the MASC. The goal of this project is to update policies to reflect current practice, statutory requirements and contractual language; to remove obsolete policies and ultimately to prepare the district's policy manual for on -line presentation and availability. The Policy Subcommittee has worked tirelessly on this review. Convener Andy Limeri and members Beverly Hugo and Carol Phalen are to be thanked for their efforts on this project. School Committee Administrative Assistant Ann Greenberg has greatly assisted in this work providing an historical perspective for many district policies gained during her more than 15 years of service to the school system. The Committee In April 2010, incumbents Adam Blumer and Ricky Finlay were re- elected to three -year terms. Carol Phalen was re- elected to a one - year term expiring in April 2011. After the election, the Committee reconvened to elect Michael Bower as Chair, Beverly Hugo as Vice Chair and Richard Finlay as Clerk. In closing, the School Committee would like to thank the district teachers, staff and administration, who despite severe budget constraints continue to improve the quality of education for all of our students. We would also like to thank the citizens of Framingham Education & Libraries 149 Town of Framingham and their elected Town Meeting representatives for their ongoing support of the Framingham Public Schools. It is truly a privilege to represent the Framingham community in supporting our outstanding public schools. Respectfully submitted, Michael J. Bower, Chair Beverly Hugo, Vice Chair Richard A. Finlay, Clerk Adam Blumer Andy Limeri David F. Miles Carol Phalen Superintendent of Schools The College Board's Advance Placement Program (AP) offers students the opportunity to take challenging, college -level courses while still in high school and to receive college credit, advanced placement, or both for successful performance on the AP Exams. Since 2002, the number of students taking the AP exams has more than doubled with three hundred and forty participating in 684 Advanced Placement Exams, in eighteen subjects, in 2010. 84% of the exams were passed and eligible for college credit. This compares with three hundred sixty three who took the exam in twenty -two subjects in 2009. Through continuing aggressive efforts of the FHS Guidance Department, 89% of the junior class and 89% of the sophomore class took the Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test (PSAT). These numbers are impressive compared to the fact that 65% of the junior class and 46% of the sophomore class took the test in 2004. Over 76% of the graduating class participated in the SAT. Framingham students averaged 511 on the Critical Reading portion, 547 in the Mathematics portion, and 509 on the Writing Component. These scores compare well with National Averages which are 501, 516 and 492 respectively. The community should be proud that so many students take and pass a wide variety of 2010 Annual Report these college -level exams, and that they do so well. One result of the high student achievement is acceptance at a college or university to continue education. In keeping with past years, more than 88% of the graduates in the Class of 2010 continued their education at an impressive variety of institutions of higher learning, including some of the most selective colleges in the country. The Fine Arts program in Framingham schools continues to produce award winning events. A few examples of their accomplishments are: Framingham High School students took home twenty -four awards in the Boston Globe Scholastic Art competition. In August, the High School Drama Company represented the United States at the Fringe Festival in Scotland. They were chosen from a group 2000 entries and were also State Finalists in the Massachusetts High School Drama Guild Competition. In addition, they were the winner of the Sherwood Collins State Playwriting Award, which is a student written one -act play writing competition. Five seniors in the Drama Company placed in the Massachusetts Educational Guild Scholarship auditions. Cameron Middle School had ten students who received honorable mention awards at the Boston Globe Scholastic Art Contest and twenty- six Framingham High School students received awards as well. Five students, who won Gold Key Awards, will have their worked judged in the National Competition. Town Meeting appropriated funds to achieve a balanced budget for FYI 1. The School Department is appreciative of the Town's financial support to provide its children with a quality education they deserve. Throughout the year, working with the Structural Deficit Committee, comprised of members from the Finance Committee, Board of Selectmen and School Committee as well as the Town Manager, CFO, School Business Administration Director and the Superintendent of Schools, and through Education & Libraries 150 Town of Framingham efforts of the School Committee Finance Subcommittee, have worked hard to provide a transparent financial picture for the Town of Framingham. Respectfully Submitted, Steven A. Hiersche, Ed.D., Superintendent of Schools Assistant Superintendent The new Massachusetts Frameworks have been adopted for Mathematics and for English language Arts and Literacy in History /Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects. Part of our Race to the Top proposal includes aligning our curriculum to these new standards. The alignment process will focus on developing curriculum maps and assessments that will guide teachers in the instruction they deliver. District literacy work over the past year includes phasing in Measures of Academic Progress (MAP), a nationally normed reading, math and language usage assessment that monitors student growth. The information MAP provides will be used to target additional reading instruction for struggling readers as well as enrichment for advanced readers. Students take the MAP assessment on -line, with results returned within 24 hours of each day's testing. The district is making plans to expand MAP to all students in grades 3 through 9. Technology integration into curriculum has been a priority. The middle school literacy specialists are piloting Expert 21, an on -line English language arts curriculum. Other middle school staffs are investigating Expert Space, a website for social studies and science teachers to access materials that improve lesson design. As the district plans a three -tier approach to reading instruction, programs such as Lexia, an on -line reading support program, are being phased in for elementary and middle school students. High school teachers are able to offer blended courses, part on -line and part face -to -face through a course taken at Northeastern as part of a 2010 Annual Report grant that included technology hardware for the Thayer Campus. Administrators have been involved in learning walk - throughs to assess literacy and math instruction in elementary and middle school classrooms. Our partners in this effort have been Dr. Julie Meltzer, an adolescent literacy expert, and Mary Canner, a former elementary principal, who is a consultant for Teachers 21. The exchange of observations and notes when completing classroom walk - throughs has informed the decisions made regarding improvements in instruction. Whether it is the innovation schools initiative at Woodrow Wilson or the work on the multi- media guide for comprehensive literacy, the staff have been enthusiastic, energetic, and engaged in efforts to improve student achievement. The district has supported efforts to become a professional learning community that makes positive incremental change through reflection and discourse. Respectfully Submitted, Christine Tyrie, Ed.D., Assistant Superintendent Business Administration The School Business Office provides financial and administrative support to the overall educational program of the School Department. The primary function of the office is to provide accounting and oversight of the Town appropriated School Department Operating Budget. For the Fiscal Year 2009- 2010, the budget was $86,250,415. In addition we oversee eighty Revolving Funds with $6,241,041 in revenues, 39 Federal, State and Local Grants with a total funding of $13,687,094, which includes ARRA Stimulus funds. The Business Office is also responsible for completing and submitting the annual End of Year Report to the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, which is the basis for the Town's receipt of Chapter 70 Aid to Education which is $19,634,161. Education & Libraries 151 Town of Framingham The Business Office serves over fifty Responsibility Centers by processing over 6,000 purchase orders with a value of over $20,000,000. In addition, the Business Office manages the cash receipts of the School Department that total over $6,000,000, ensuring that the collection, accounting and distribution of these funds conform to Town guidelines as well as sound business practices. Respectfully Submitted, Edward Gotgart, Ed.D., Director of Business Administration Human Resources In 2010, we had many administrative staff changes. Under Dr. Hiersche's leadership, four elementary principals were hired. Mr. Matthew Hanlon was appointed the McCarthy Elementary School Principal, Ms. Lucia Laguarda became the Hemenway Elementary School Principal, Dr. Susan McGilvray -Rivet was appointed the Barbieri Elementary School Principal, and Mr. Franklin Rothwell became the Brophy Elementary School Principal. Two new district administrators were also hired. Ms. Anne Higgins joined the district as the new Director of the Bilingual, Sheltered English, and ESL program.

This plan allows for setting priorities for proposed construction projects and support facilities maintenance goals for the next six to ten years. In addition, the office of Buildings and Grounds implemented and supported the district's Recycling Program, School Green Teams, School Energy Conservation Committee, Capital Improvement Proposals, budget preparation and presentation, general maintenance and cleaning, security, fire and intrusion alarms at all school facilities, mechanical systems maintenance and 2010 Annual Report upgrades, Asbestos Hazardous Emergency Response Act, Integrated Pest Management, Right -to -Know, Material Safety Data, and the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection Chemical Management Program. In closing, I would like to express appreciation to all Buildings and Grounds personnel: custodians, maintenance and office staff for their performance, professionalism and dedication during this very hectic and challenging year. Respectfully Submitted, Matthew Torti, Director of Buildings and Grounds; Ernest Moreau, Interim Assistant Director School Health Services School Health Services (SHS) provides comprehensive nursing care to the students of Framingham Public Schools. Nurse staffing includes (in spite of the elimination of one nurse position last year) one full time nurse in each school, two nurses at the high school, and two adolescent health nurses. This year SHS again benefits from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health Essential School Health Services (ESHS) program. In spite of a 9% reduction in funding, ESHS monies continue to strengthen SHS infrastructure with personnel, professional development opportunities, and equipment, including technology. In Fall 2010, medication and independent nurse polices were reviewed, brought into compliance with Massachusetts regulations, and approved by School Committee. Currently, SHS is assisting with the development of the district's new state - mandated concussion policy and protocol. The Edward M Kennedy Health Center satellite site at Framingham High School (FHS) has been in operation for one full year. Since it opened in January 2010, seventy six Education & Libraries 154 Town of Framingham students have enrolled and are accessing clinic services during the school day. SHS continues its long history of partnerships with institutions engaged in health care and research. Collaborations are ongoing with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center /Boston University and the SONIC study (a study investigating sun exposure, moles and melanoma in school -aged children), the New England Eye Institute in the operation of the Vision Center at Fuller Middle School (providing comprehensive vision care to all members of the FPS community), and Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine's dental sealant program. In September 2010, the district's Teen Pregnancy and Parenting program began a three year partnership with the United Way of Tri County. The program, "Strengthening Youth in a United Way" provides support and prevention services to pregnant teens, new teen mothers and fathers and other high risk students in the district. A new component of the program, community outreach, will provide prevention activities to the district's three middle schools, ESL program, and the Framingham Boys and Girls Club. SHS continues it's commitment to providing preeminent nursing services to the FPS community. We look forward to another year of administering our program. Respectfully Submitted, Judy Styer, Director, School Health Services Title I Title I is a federally funded program that provides financial resources to districts and schools with a higher percentage of students from low- income families. All six of our Title I schools — Barbieri, Brophy, McCarthy and Woodrow Wilson Elementary Schools, and Cameron and Fuller Middle Schools — have "schoolwide programs ". This means that all students in the school are eligible to receive support through the Tide I program. 2010 Annual Report At the state level, the focus of Title I has shifted from one of compliance to one of support. While we still closely follow the regulations at the federal and state levels, the priority is to support overall school improvement initiatives. In Framingham, the Title I program has made a similar shift. We continue to provide interventionists in the Title I schools who support the district goal of ensuring that all students make at least one year's growth in literacy and mathematics. In addition, math coaches provide support to classroom teachers to help them support the mathematics achievement of those students most at risk of not meeting the state's high academic standards. Finally, the Data Coaching initiative started in the 2009 -2010 school year has been continued and expanded for the 2010 -2011 school year. Through this initiative, teachers work in collaborative groups to review student data and use it to guide instructional decisions. Combined with Title IIA funds, data teams are being formed in all schools. Our parent involvement activities continue to support each school's improvement goals. Our goal is to provide parents and other caregivers with the tools they need in order to partner effectively with their child's school in order to promote strong academic achievement. We have offered workshops on the new math program, Think Math, so that parents are better able to understand the homework children receive. Similarly, we have provided workshops about summer opportunities for students and ways parents can support continued learning in the summer months. In this way, parents and caregivers remain an integral component of school improvement initiatives. The Title I program continues to be excited about the support it is able to provide to students, families, and the general school community. Respectfully Submitted, Sarah Guernsey; Director of Tide I Education & Libraries 155 Town of Framingham Adult ESL Plus Framingham Adult ESL Plus enrolled 620 students in each of two semesters for 2010. Students came from 32 countries and spoke 15 different languages. They ranged in age from 18 to 85. Students attended a.m. or p.m. English as Second Language classes, Adult Basic Education classes, GED preparation classes, or Citizenship Preparation classes. All were eager to improve their English skills and in doing so become better integrated into the Framingham community. Thirty students graduated from the program's highest level and eight students received their GED after successfully passing the GED examination. Attendance for the year was excellent with over 80% of enrolled students completing each semester. Highlights of 2010 include: • A presentation for advanced students by the MIRA Coalition. • A supplemental writing class for GED students to help prepare them for next steps in their education. • Presentations from a physician at The Kennedy Health Center regarding healthy lifestyles. • Class visits to The Danforth Museum, The Framingham History Center, The State House, and The Framingham Public Library. The effectiveness of educational programming at Framingham Adult ESL Plus is measured by Performance Standards for Adult Education Programs issued by The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (formerly the Department of Education). These standards include: Attendance - Programs ensure that students attend between 66% and 76% of planned student hours. Framingham Adult ESL Plus achieved an attendance rate of 87 %. Pre and Post Test Percentage - Programs ensure that between 66% and 76% of eligible students are pre and post tested using the DESE's 2010 Annual Report approved assessment tools. Framingham Adult ESL Plus pre and post- tested 83% of students. Learner Gains - Programs ensure that between 35% and 49% of students demonstrate gain as defined for each approved assessment. 40% of students at Framingham Adult ESL Plus made measurable gains. Setting and Meeting Goals - Programs set on average at least 2 goals per student per year and programs meet on average at least one goal per year. Students at Framingham Adult ESL Plus set on average 4.6 goals per year and met 3.4 goals per year. Another indication of program effectiveness is increased student involvement in the area's economy, schools, and greater community. Students report joining school parent organizations, becoming more active in youth groups, getting jobs, attending training programs, and starting businesses. Framingham Adult ESL Plus also has an active volunteer component through which some of the hundreds of wait - listed students can receive 2 hours a week of tutoring. At present 8 of the over 30 volunteers are former students in the program. They have decided to "give back" to the program that helped them so much. On March 22, 2010 The MetroWest Adult ESL Fundraising Committee hosted a successful gala to support Framingham Adult ESL Plus. This annual event, spearheaded by many area businesses, raises funds to support 6 classes each year. The support of the local business community as well as many agencies and individuals is of tremendous importance, especially in helping to address the ongoing waiting list of over 500 eager students. Framingham Adult ESL Plus has demonstrated tremendous growth since it's inception by a group of town meeting members in 1984. Framingham Adult ESL Plus is fortunate to be in a school system and a community which values life long learning and appreciates the diversity of its residents. We look forward to continuing to give back Education & Libraries 156 Town of Framingham to the community, which has been so supportive. Respectfully Submitted, Christine Tibor, Adult ESL Coordinator Special Education Program The Department of Special Education provides a broad array of services for children and youth identified with disabilities from the ages of three through twenty -two. The referral, evaluation and placement procedures are governed by state and federal special education laws and regulations, namely, The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). FPS is committed to the goal of providing an appropriate education for students with special needs in the least restrictive setting. The following programs and services were offered by FPS from Pre - School to High School: Special Education Resource Rooms are available in each school. The Resource Room or Learning Center model provides direct teaching in both special and regular class settings, through inclusion, supportive teaching and /or consultation to the regular classroom teacher of identified children. There are fifty -eight Substantially Separate classes from Pre - School through High School. These students require comprehensive programming which is provided outside of the regular education classroom for more than 60% of the school day. These classes are located at the High School, three Middle Schools, at seven Elementary Schools, and at the Pre - School serving the special education needs of students throughout the District. Where appropriate, these students are included in general education classes and ancillary activities. Related services, namely speech /language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, adaptive physical education and services from the teachers of the visually impaired, orientation & mobility specialist and consulting audiologist may be included in a 2010 Annual Report student's Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and are provided by itinerant personnel at all schools. Inclusion programs have been established using a variety of approaches throughout the district. Some classes are team - taught, some classes meet for specific periods, and some special education teachers are assigned to a group of classes. In addition, some teachers who are dually certified in special education and regular education have full time responsibility for inclusion classes at the elementary level. Framingham is a model for Pre - School Programs for both children with special needs and typical children ages three to five. The placement of children with special needs in the Pre - School Programs emphasizes language, communication and social skills development. The majority of children with special needs in the BLOCKS Pre - School Program are integrated throughout their school day with children without special needs. Framingham continues to see a significant increase in the number of children with autism, with multiple disabilities and medical needs, with significant social/ emotional disabilities, particularly at the Pre - School and Elementary level. The severity of these disabilities presents challenges to the school district to develop new and additional programs in order to maintain these children in the public schools. In conclusion, Framingham has continued to implement and provide a comprehensive continuum of programs, services, and placement options for students with disabilities. Framingham is fortunate to have an active Special Education Parent Advisory Council whose role is to advise the special education department and to engage parents of children with disabilities in the schools through meetings and town wide newsletters. Education & Libraries 157 Town of Framingham Respectfully Submitted, Betsey H. McKeon, Director of Special Education Bilingual Education Programs The Department of Bilingual Education provides support and services to students in grades K -12 whose primary language is other than English. This student group is often referred to as English language learners (ELL) and the primary goal of all bilingual programming is to provide specialized instruction in English language development to enable ELLs to access the curriculum and achieve in an English dominant environment. Bilingual education is an umbrella term which encompasses a variety of different types of program models. In Framingham, such models range from Sheltered English Immersion to Two -Way, to Transitional Bilingual Education, and include variations on each of these programs. In 2010, 16.6% of the district K -12 enrollment was identified as limited English proficient or ELL and FPS offered specific programming and support at eight different schools: five elementary schools, Barbieri, Brophy, Dunning, Potter Road, and Wilson; 2 middle schools, Walsh and Fuller; and at Framingham High School. Due to the dedication of the staff and success of programming, FPS continues to be recognized as an educational leader in bilingual education. One of the external indicators of success is an accountability report published by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education on each Title III school district's progress toward attaining Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives. Once again, FPS has met the state set goals for attainment and for progress relative to English language acquisition for ELL students. This is a tremendous accomplishment and accurately reflects the high quality of teachers, programs, and services provided at all of our schools. This year the office of Bilingual education has sponsored several professional development 2010 Annual Report seminars to enhance teacher's understanding and ability to address the complex needs of ELLs. These professional development offerings have been on -going throughout the year, including summer months, and have enjoyed the participation of faculty across grade levels and from every department. Also this year, the bilingual department has leant its particular expertise to several committees in the district reviewing curriculum, assessment, intervention, literacy, and data relating to the education of all students in Framingham. Finally, in the area of continual professional growth and in recognition of Framingham's expertise, the Bilingual Education Department was invited and has participated in several Department of Elementary and Secondary Education sponsored initiatives for ELLs: the newly organized Urban ELL Director's Network, DESE Curriculum Summit, Massachusetts Reading Association -MRA ELL Ad -Hoc Committee, among others. Another area of growth for the Bilingual Education Department this year has been to establish a town -wide Bilingual Parent Advisory Council. The purpose of the group is to provide parents of limited English proficient students an opportunity to meet and discuss the unique needs of their ELL children. The first organizational meeting was held in the Fall to solicit input from parents and to form a core leadership group. 20 -30 parents were in attendance. From that initial meeting, several parents volunteered to serve on steering committee and they planned and successfully held the first B -PAC meeting with approximately 35 -45 parents of limited English proficient children. Education is truly a team effort and it is with great admiration and appreciation for the efforts of everyone involved, including teachers, paraprofessionals, tutors, parents, students, and administration, that I respectfully submit this brief snapshot on behalf of the Bilingual Education Department. Respectfully Submitted, Education & Libraries 158 Town of Framingham Anne Higgins, Director Transportation Department The Transportation Department provides a vital service for the Framingham Public Schools. Over five thousand public school students utilize bus transportation on a daily basis. The transportation office continues to work diligently to ensure our students with safe and efficient transport. Massachusetts General Law requires the School Departments to provide transportation to all children outside 2 miles of each respective district school in grades K - 6. To that end, Framingham provides school transportation to three hundred students in non - public schools in Framingham. Due to budget constraints, the School Department moved to a fee -based transportation program seven years ago for those students in grades 7 - 12. Fees are waived for special circumstances such as children placed in Framingham foster care homes, homeless students, special education students and students on medical waivers. The district does have limited seats available for purchase for students who live within 2 miles for grades K —12. The Transportation Department works closely with the Framingham Police Department's Safety Division and the Public Works Department and is a member of the Local Emergency Planning Committee. Respectfully Submitted, Rick Gallagher, Transportation Director Technology Department The Office of Technology is responsible for all administrative, instructional, and communications technology for the Framingham Public Schools. Seventeen (17) locations are supported on our fiber optic 2010 Annual Report wide area network (WAN), over 9,000 users (5,500 network accounts), almost 3,000 computers, and over 1,000 VOIP (Internet - based) telephones. The Office of Technology is focused on enhancing and streamlining the teaching and learning process with an efficient and accessible network, a robust and Web - accessible student data management system, and IP -based and wireless telecommunications. The Office of Technology's primary purpose is to support teaching and learning in the 21s` Century. To this end, we leverage technology to improve the efficiency of teaching and learning as well as the efficiency of administration through the use of cost saving technologies. The 2010 -2011 school year builds upon the inertia of the 2009 -2010 technology growth and focuses specifically on deploying over 1 VOIP phones, operating schools with an entirely new student information system, and expanding the role of network copying and printing throughout the district. Furthermore, the district continues to expand its managed wireless network in an effort to provide each school with 100% wireless network coverage by the start of school in fall of 2011. Looking forward, the Office of Technology is creating a long -range technology plan to guide technology growth for the next four years. To this end, the Office of Technology is preparing to focus on the replacement and deployment of teacher and student lab computers throughout the entire district as well as classroom projectors and other technological teaching tools. Respectfully Submitted, Adam Seldow, Ed.D., Director of Technology Joseph P. Keefe Regional Technical Vocational School 750 Winter Street, Framingham, MA 1508-416-2100 1 info @jpkeefehs.org This annual report is submitted by the members of the School Committee of the South Middlesex Regional Vocational Technical School in compliance with the Education & Libraries 159 Town of Framingham provisions of the Agreement among the towns of Ashland, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton and Natick. As in recent past reports, this report discusses from the perspective of the Committee the principal items with which the Committee was concerned during the year. It is a representative account of matters solely within the policy making authority of the Committee and also of matters which the Superintendent /Director brought before the Committee for information and consultation. For greater detail and discussion the reader should read the extended minutes of Committee meetings and the attachments thereto which are available at the school office. The Committee acknowledges with great appreciation the service of its Recording Secretary, Elaine O'Toole, whose careful recording of the minutes of the Committee Meetings makes possible the preparation of this annual report. The Committee also noted the retirement of a number of long term employees: Sheila Jewer, 32 years, who had been a Team Chairperson, a lead teacher and a Special Education Coordinator; Linda Lloyd, Culinary Arts Instructor, 20 years; Al Mayhew custodian and lead custodian, 30 years; Diane Menzies, Technology Coordinator and employee,17 years; Nancy Aceto , reading specialist in the Special Education Department for 24 years. The Committee reorganized on June 7, 2010 with the following officers being reelected unanimously to the positions held in the preceding year: Chair: Nelson Goldin. Vice - Chair: Tassos Filledes Secretary: Linda Fobes Treasurer: Jack Keating Assistant Treasurer: Lawrence Cooper 2010 Annual Report It was noted that Mr. Filledes has been awarded the Massachusetts Association of School Committees Lifetime Achievement for his many years of service on the School Committee and previously in the School Department of the Town of Natick. In May the Committee welcomed a new member, Mr. James Cameau, a member from the Town of Framingham elected at the April town election, and the return of Mr. John Kahn, re- elected for a third term, also from the Town of Framingham. The Committee received with regret the resignation of Michelle Gates, Hopkinton Representative, due to personal reasons. The balance of this report presents a summary of the discussion and actions of the Committee on a number of the important matters brought before the Committee for advice or action. Community Engagement The Superintendent responded to a neighborhood concern presented by Mr. Rossi about street obstruction and resulting traffic and safety hazards presented in the neighborhood of the school by on- street parking due to weekend and holiday rentals of the building. Reduction of the problem depends upon cooperation with the Park and Recreation and School Departments and upon imposition in rental agreements of limits on the number of attendees and contributions to the cost of needed police details. Administration The Superintendent's Evaluation Sub - Committee considered the process by which the Committee and the Superintendent together establish goals for the administration against which the Superintendent's performance is evaluated periodically by the Committee. The Sub - Committee proposed that it be reorganized to achieve broader participation among the towns' representatives and to maintain some continuity in its work. The on -going Sub- Education & Libraries 160 Town of Framingham Committee members are John Kahn. Michelle Gates, William Gaine, Linda Fobes and Dr. Stephen Kane, Chair. The School Committee adopted goals for the Superintendent's performance evaluation period from February 2010 through June 30, 2011. The goals adopted related to: developing District budgets that will meet the approval of the District town and managing them effectively; securing collective bargaining agreements with representatives of the faculty and administration; continuing to stabilize and to increase the student population; developing instructional practices and performance evaluation procedures that will result in improvement of student performance indicators; and new career and technical curriculum components to build student hope and confidence in their ability to achieve success in school, the work place and society. Principal Canali informed parents and guardians of Keefe students that in November they could begin at any time to obtain electronic access to their student's schedule, attendance, assignments and grades through the Yortal system through the Keefe web site link to the zPass login. The Committee completed its periodic evaluation of the Superintendent's accomplishments against established goals and desired personal qualities. The complete record of that evaluation is a public document that is available at the Keefe office. The Committee approved a new contract with the Superintendent extending his employment through June 30, 2014. The salary for the year ending June 30, 2011 was set at $156,800 which is subject to renegotiation as of June 2011. The text of the contract is a public document and may be seen at the Keefe office. 2010 Annual Report During the course of the year the Superintendent and Richard DeAngelis, Esq., the Committee's representatives, negotiated with representatives of the several employee units to arrive at collective bargaining agreements. They reported the progress of the negotiations to the full Committee in executive sessions and periodically received instructions as to the position of the Committee. When the agreements have been finalized they will be public documents. Reorganization of the Vocational Program The administration reported to the Committee that it had implemented a major reorganization of the first year vocational program for the purposes of improving the vocational and academic instruction at Keefe; enhancing the learning experiences of our students and realizing financial savings due to staffing efficiencies. The adoption of this program resulted in a reduction of approximately $400,000 in the FY 2011 budget request. The principal features of the reorganized program are: 1) Freshmen will receive additional instructional time in core content academic subjects. 2) Freshmen will explore the vocational - technical courses in the career and technical educational laboratories (CTE), in four continuous periods with highly qualified instructors. 3) Freshmen will enter their actual shop in January of their first year at Keefe instead of in their second year. 4) CTE shops and laboratories will be fully utilized by our students. 5) The schedule will result in staffing efficiencies in CTE, academic, and technology services. 6) Earlier shop experience will allow earlier access to Co- operative programs. 7) Academic instruction will be primarily provided in double periods. 8) This reorganization plan will free up vocational laboratory space for the Education & Libraries 161 Town of Framingham possible future expansion of CTE offerings. 9) Grade 9 students will be exposed earlier and more fully to the reality of their proposed vocation. School Improvement Plans The Committee reviewed the progress toward the goals of the 2009 -2010 School Improvement Plan. The report of Principal Canali noted tangible specific improvements in school access security measures; significant improvements in student deportment evidenced by decreases in tardiness and out of school suspensions and an increase in attendance to approximately 92 %; an increase in the number of athletic teams to 17 and increased student activities 24; stabilization of the student population; and efforts by the Professional Development Committee to meet the instructional and technology needs of the faculty. The Committee adopted The School Improvement Plan for the 2010 - 2011 which embodies specific performance objectives as follows: (1) maintaining and providing a safe environment for all individuals who use school facilities for education, athletics and community events; (2) developing, implementing and evaluating the effectiveness of programs in meeting their goals; (3) expanding community partnerships and communications with all constituents; and (4) using data to assess existing programs to bring about productive initiatives to stabilize and increase enrollment. School and Student Safety, Security and Well Being Keefe's new comprehensive student disciplinary code was implemented. The code eliminates the traditional demerit system in favor of a more positive focus on modeling appropriate behaviors consistent with Keefe's teaching objectives. Initial results indicate a marked decline in indicators of behaviors that impact adversely on the learning experience 2010 Annual Report such as incidents of tardiness, repeat offender suspensions and Saturday detentions. The Committee requested the Principal to continue exploring health food options under the school's wellness plan. Cafeteria menus seek to utilize ingredients offered by the state school lunch program efforts in presenting healthy options. Soft drink and snack vending machines have been replaced with a nutritionally sound bottled water /juice vending unit. The Committee approved revisions to the Student Handbook that had previously been approved by the School Council. Major changes relate to: providing extra help for students who exceed the maximum of 12 unexcused absences; authorizing, upon due process, the principal to suspend a student upon issuance of a felony complaint or to expel a student upon conviction; and inclusion of state compliant provisions regarding bullying. The policy is available on the Keefe web site. After detailed consideration of Keefe's comprehensive bullying policy it was unanimously approved by the Committee. Race to the Top Program The Superintendent in January 2010 recommended that Keefe participate in the state and national competition to qualify for a portion of the $250,000,000 grant available under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. With the essential cooperation among the administration, the Keefe Teachers' Association and the School Committee the Committee approved Keefe's participation. Eligibility for the grant requires significant changes in instructional methods and the use of data in assessing student achievement and in teacher evaluation. Although Massachusetts received the ARRA grant the amount distributable to school districts is approximately $125,000,000 with the balance being retained by the DESE. The Committee designated Mr. Goldin to Education & Libraries 162 Town of Framingham participate with the Superintendent and a representative of the KTEA to develop an application to participate in the distribution to districts. Subsequently the Committee received the Race -to -the -Top Proposal that was submitted to the Department of Education. Six project areas were included in the grant requirements: (1) Defining an educator evaluation framework; (2) Aligning the school curriculum to the state common core; (3) Strengthening the school's climate/ culture; (4) Increasing the school's interoperability capability among academic institutions; (5) Increasing the number of graduates completing the Masscore program to achieve college eligibility; (6) Closing the proficiency gap in mathematics and ELA through technology enhancement. An agreement was reached and an application was submitted but was unsuccessful. Post Graduate Program The Keefe post - graduate program serves current or recent (1 to 21/2 year) high school graduates from member towns. Enrollees have met their academic requirements for graduation and participate only to the extent of available positions in their chosen vocational program. The Budget Process The Budget Sub - committee, Members Burman, Hopkins, Lanoue and Gates, under the Chair, Mr. Filledes presented a preliminary budget representing a 6.62% increase ($999.186) over the prior year's actual budget. The final budget for FY 2010 had been a reduction of 1.16% from the FY 2009 budget. The Superintendent continued his practice of meeting informally early in the budget process with the financial officers of the member towns to develop mutual awareness of both municipal budget constraints and the efforts of the Committee to manage the school efficiently and effectively while recognizing those limitations. The Committee continued to consider reductions in the preliminary budget and the budget as submitted to the 2010 Annual Report member towns and approved by all ($15,092,770) represented an increase only of $22,061 or 1' /2% over the prior year. The District assessment for FY '11 in terms of per pupil cost for each of the member towns compared to the prior year are Ashland — down $340; Framingham — down $621; Holliston — up $39; Hopkinton — down $27; Natick — down $146. The cost per pupil is driven by several factors that include: changes in the District budget, local credits, minimum required contribution and the student enrollment of each town. The administration under the leadership of Business Manager, Kirsteen Leveillee is preparing for a conversion to a more current accounting system and software which will increase the efficiency of the business operation, increase accuracy and enable the preparation of a more comprehensive set of reports, including historical data, reports for management use. The system will become operational in increments with a twelve month completion deadline. Auditor's Report The annual audit by the independent accounting firm of McCarthy & Hargrave disclosed no inaccuracies in the financial statements and only two minor procedural errors which had been corrected. State Aid The Governor and Legislature again proposed reductions in state aid to transportation. These funds provide access to regional schools where transportation networks extend across community lines. Moreover, cuts made after member communities have approved balanced regional school budgets based upon reliable forecasts may require significant reductions in educational programs. The Superintendent and the Committee Chair, with the support of the Committee, addressed their concerns to the Governor and State legislators and to the Massachusetts Association of School Committees. Education & Libraries 163 Town of Framingham Siemens' Energy Conservation Project The annual Performance Assurance Summary for the measurement year ended May 23, 2010 documented that had the cost of gas continued to increase in the second year as projected, the projected savings ($550,000) based on gas consumption would have exceeded the projected savings by $27,600. In fact, due to the decrease in gas rates, the actual savings due to the program ($495,000) were less by $26,000) than the total guaranteed savings. The actual savings exceeded the amortization requirement of the Lease Purchase Agreement through which the cost of the project was financed. The school's independent auditors report on the project noted that as of the fiscal year ended June 30, 2009 the District's general fund had realized a net savings of over $250,000 due to the project. Personnel Administration The Committee continued to wrestle with the issue of maintaining an appropriate health insurance program in the face of rising costs. The Employee Health Advisory Committee met and recommended that the District employees increase their co -pay commitment and thereby realize a cost savings on premiums. This would be cost effective for subscribers and for the District. The Committee approved the recommendation. Enrollment, Recruiting and Student Retention In March the administration organized a new effort to bring the advantages offered by Keefe to the attention of 8` graders in the member towns. Building on the school's Summer Discover Program the school was visited by 45 potential enrollees over four days who participated in vocational and athletic activities and their parents. They were invited to see the graphics, culinary arts, and auto and carpentry shops. Transportation was provided from the participating middle 2010 Annual Report schools and parent picked up the students at Keefe. The Freshman Parents' Night was held in September with 88 parents attending from each of the member towns. There was a Fall Open House to which students and parents of the middle schools in all towns were invited through the cooperation this year of each of the towns. The Committee adopted a revised admissions policy developed to conform to Department of Elementary & Secondary Education (DESE) requirements to assure that vocational schools' admissions are neutral as to race, sex, religion, English language facility or learning disability. The DESE had reviewed and approved the proposed policy. Buildings and Grounds An engineering survey disclosed that the smoke stack at the southerly end of the building, an original element of the heating and cooling system, urgently needed extensive repair beyond the capacity of the maintenance staff. Temporary repairs and retrofitting as performed in 2002 are not sufficient for the long term. The Superintendent reported that the administration will strive to contain repair costs and apply operational funds as available. A sub - committee of Mr. Kahn and Mr. Rossi was appointed to explore the matter with the administration. The Superintendent discussed with the Committee the need for additional athletic fields to support the enlarged athletic program. The Committee informally advised him to explore the project with departments of the Town of Framingham. Student Achievement The District received from the DESE its annual accountability report detailing Keefe's Adequate Yearly Progress. Based upon the AYP criteria which includes: the level of student participation in the MCAS testing; meeting state performance targets; attainment of the District's own improvement target and achievement of attendance and graduation targets, Keefe students satisfied achieved Education & Libraries 164 Town of Framingham Adequate Yearly Progress over all and in all identified subgroups in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. In September all parents or guardians of Keefe students received the Keefe Report Card notifying them of this accomplishment and of other pertinent information. In summary, from 2007 to 2010 in ELA the number of students scoring at proficient or above increased by 19% while the number of students failing decreased by 8 %. For math the number at proficient or higher increased by 10% while the number failing decreased by 2 %. In December the Committee was informed that according to the 5 level scaling system created by the DESE under the Educational Reform Act of 2010 Keefe has been categorized in level 3. That reflects that Keefe ranks, along with five or six others vocational schools, among the lowest performing 20% of all high schools in the Commonwealth with respect to absolute achievement and improvement trend. In 2011 the factor of annual growth rate will be included in the determination. As the formula to be used in the 2011 calculation is still being developed by DESE it is not possible to predict the effect on Keefe's status of the generally favorable rate of improvement Keefe students demonstrate when their 10`'' grade (Keefe) scores are compared with their 8` grade (Middle School) scores. In February Keefe hosted 600 student participants in the Skills USA District Competition at which our students received 7 gold medals, 10 silver and 3 bronze. A separate building construction competition was held in April at the Royal Trade Center in Marlborough. A newly formed Drama Club in March presented as its first offering, the popular comedy "The Princess Bride." The event was open to students during school hours and to parents and friends in the evening. The stage 2010 Annual Report sets were constructed by the vocational shops and the crew and cast, under the leadership of Principal Patricia Canali, added a new dimension to the Keefe experience. General Advisory Board The General Advisory Board consists of the Chair of each Vocational Advisory Board. The General Board summarizes and brings to the attention of the administration and the School Committee observations and recommendations of the advisory boards. The points noted for the current year include: the need to continually align the curriculum with changes in technology; outreach to bring Keefe's program to potential students; increasing opportunities for students and employers in the co -op program; successful pursuit of grant funding for state of the art vocational equipment; and maintaining the license status of student professional programs that advance Keefe students' vocational entry opportunities.

Jeanne Kelley is well - qualified for the position, having served for six years as Acting Director, three years as Director of the Literacy Unlimited Program, and six years as Branch Librarian. She also served as Acting Director in 2005. Mark Contois, Director from January 2006 until August, 2010, left Framingham to become Head Librarian of the Worcester Library. The transition has been smooth. In February, 2011, Jeanne Kelley selected Jane Peck, Branch Librarian for nine years, to become Assistant Director. Previously, Jane Peck was Assistant Director of the Needham Public Library. A search is under way for a new Branch Librarian. Reaching Out to the Community The Library collaborated with Framingham State University to plan and present a unique fall lifelong learning series that offered ten free sessions on `How to be a Cineliterate,' `Thinking like Thoreau,' and other topics. Five sessions led by faculty from FSU and other academic institutions were offered at each location. The series proved so popular that plans were made to offer a winter /spring series for 2011. Throughout the year, the Library collaborated with The Boys and Girls Club for a Mixing in Math project and the YMCA on summer programming for children. Staff attended registrations for the Framingham Adult ESL Program (FAESL), provided tables for the health fair, a presentation for Programs for People. We regularly attended meetings of Framingham Community Partners and the START Partnership. The rich variety of weekly programming offered to the community continued throughout the year with popular film series, Sunday concerts, children's performances and other events, many times with overflow crowds. Summer Reading Program The Library offered its first Adult Summer Reading Program in 2010 asking "Why should kids have all the fun ?" and through the generosity of local businesses gave away free tee shirts to all 339 participants. At the end of the summer, 1,237 grand prize raffle tickets were entered for the grand prize of a blu -ray player. In the children's Summer Reading Program, 1,530 children participated in 2010 who also received tee shirts and prizes throughout the summer months. Friends of the Library The Friends of the Framingham Library raised thousands of dollars through their monthly and ongoing book sale to support the collections, summer reading and adult and children's programming. Their dedication and hard work continues to provide programs and services that would not be possible without their help. Please consider joining this important group. The Framingham Public Library Foundation The Framingham Public Library Foundation was created in 2010 as a way to provide funding for projects and initiatives that complement, but do not supplant, the Town's financial responsibility for the operation of the Library system. Examples of projects that may be funded by the FPL Foundation include building renovations, capital projects, and special programs. The long -term goal of the Foundation is to build an endowment, to help provide Education & Libraries 166 Town of Framingham materials, programs and facilities that enrich the cultural fabric of the Town of Framingham and the quality of life of its residents. Donors can contribute in several ways: Annual Appeals, Memorial Gifts, direct donations, and bequests. In the coming year, the primary focus of the Foundation will be a capital campaign to raise funds to build a new McAuliffe Branch Library. The Foundation's fundraising committee, chaired by Jason Smith, will solicit donations from corporations and individuals with the goal of providing additional funds for the project beyond what the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners construction grant and town funding may provide. McAuliffe Branch Library Project: A Need, Plus an Opportunity McAuliffe Branch Library outgrew its space more than ten years ago. The second busiest branch library in Massachusetts, the McAuliffe Branch Library is one of the smallest branch libraries in the Commonwealth. It has 12,000 visitors a month and is responsible for 33% of the Framingham Public Library's total circulation. In May, 2010, the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners announced a new Library Construction Grant opportunity. As branch libraries are now on a par with main libraries and as Framingham is eligible to receive about 50% of the cost of the land and the building, the Trustees decided to apply for a 2010 Construction Grant. When asked what they would like to see in a new Branch Library, the community said it wanted larger children's and young adult areas, comfortable reading space, study and tutoring rooms, and a meeting room. In addition, patrons mentioned that a new McAuliffe should be energy- efficient and fully accessible. With these requirements and Town Meeting approval at the October 19, 2010 Fall Town 2010 Annual Report Meeting, we engaged Vandermark Consulting to develop a program or feasibility study for a new Branch. We issued RFQs and engaged Finegold Alexander & Associates as our Architects and Design Technique, Inc. as our Owner's Project Manager. In November we issued an RFP for land on Water Street for the new McAuliffe Branch. We received two bids and selected a wooded site at 732 -746 RR Water Street owned by the A.J. Rousseau Trust. At the January 12, 2011 Special Town Meeting, Town Meeting approved the concept design. Town Meeting also authorized the purchase of a site at 746 Water Street for the new McAuliffe Branch Library, contingent upon receiving a Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners grant and receiving authorization at a later Town Meeting for the Town's share of the funds for a new McAuliffe building. The price is $710,000. We then submitted the grant application along with the preliminary design. The MBLC will announce grant awards on July 14, 2011. Library Trustee News In April, 2010, incumbents Robert Dodd, Elizabeth Fideler, Ruth Winett, and Chris Walsh were elected to serve as Trustees for three -year terms. In May, 2010, the Trustees elected the following officers: Ruth Winett, Chair; Elizabeth Fideler, Vice Chair; Nancy Coville- Wallace, Secretary; and Danielle Barney, Treasurer. The other trustees are Maria Barry, Edward Burke, Arthur Finstein, Jan Harrington, Sam Klaidman, and Jo -Anne Thompson. In 2010 the Trustees and staff completed the comprehensive Long -Range Plan 2010 -2013. The major goals of the Long -Range Plan are to build a new McAuliffe Branch Library, to promote lifelong learning, and to increase the Education & Libraries 167 Town of Framingham collaboration between the Library and the Schools, as well as other community organizations. Other goals are to upgrade the Main Library to make it more accessible and more convenient and to evaluate and eventually introduce self -check out systems, eBook readers, as well as to improve customer service. We appreciate Town Meeting's support. We also appreciate the help and support provided by the Board of Selectmen, Town Manager, Assistant Town Manager, Chief Financial Officer, Town Counsel and staff, and all of the Town's Department and Department Heads throughout the process. We also 2010 Annual Report appreciate the support of the Finance Committee and the Standing Committees on Education, Capital Budgets, Real Property, and Ways and Means, all of whom endorsed the project. We value the dedication of the Library's Building Committee and especially its Chair, Sam Klaidman, also a Trustee, as well as the efforts of the Jeanne Kelley on behalf of this project.

As part of these negotiations, the CAC negotiated an improved repair reporting procedure for the RCN managed fiber optic network connecting all Town buildings. We also negotiated the waiver of fees for certain set -top boxes for RCN cable TV customers in Framingham. The license transfer was approved at the June 8, 2010 meeting. The CAC also took the following actions: - Helped negotiate service issues including billing and repair with Town Residents. - Followed up on completion of Verizon's fiber optic cabling service and notified residents who requested notice. - Obtained a new Google telephone number that the CAC will publish for residents to contact the CAC if there is any unresolved billing or repair issues in regards to RCN, Verizon and Comcast. -Began the process of designing and implementing a Town web page for the CAC. CAPITAL BUDGET COMMITTEE The Capital Budget Committee (CBC) consists of six Town Meeting Members appointed by the Town Moderator, and one representative from the Finance Committee. The role of the CBC is to recommend to Town Meeting for approval all capital projects with a cost of at least $25,000 and an expected useful life of five years. This year at the Annual Town Meeting, the CBC recommended for approval General Fund projects amounting to $6,018,385. The source of funding for virtually all of these General Fund projects was from bonding. The requested projects included the following departments: Fire, Library, Building Services /Capital Projects, Parks and Recreation, Police, Public Works, Highway, Sanitation, Schools and Tech Services. In addition the CBC recommended to Town Meeting Enterprise Funds projects totaling $25,369,000. The projects were as follows: Water Enterprise Fund $17,967,000 and Sewer Enterprise Fund $7,402,000. The sources of funding were from bonding. A substantial portion of the bonding projects will be at interest rates of 2% or less. In addition, the Town is hopeful that some stimulus funding will be received from the Federal Government. The members of the CAC for 2010 were: W. Peter Barnes, Annabel Dodd (Chair), Sam Klaidman, James Schiavone and Norma Shulman. It was a very challenging year for the CBC. The Committee made some very difficult decisions due to limited Town funds and a never ending list of capital General Committees 169 Town of Framingham Annual Report projects requested by the various Town departments /divisions. The Committee plays a very critical role in the long -term future of the Town's infrastructure. We will continue to work closely with the Chief Financial Officer in order to make recommendations of projects that benefit our Town, while maintaining fiscal responsibility. I would like to thank all members of the CBC (Jeanne Bullock, Matt Calder, Kevin Crotty, Ed Kross, Dick Weader and Nancy Wilson) for their time and efforts during the year. It is a privilege to serve with such dedicated members. Respectfully submitted, Bill McCarthy, Chairman Cultural Council The Framingham Cultural Council (FCC) received $14,780 from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and funded 21 of 43 applicants. The Annual Awards Reception included performances by PAC, MetroWest Family Theater and F.H.S. Drama Company. Senator Karen Spilka presented certificates from the State Legislature to the 2010 awardees. The "Arts Contributor of the Year Award" went to Mr. John Steacie. We lent our support to the Bowditch Field Grand Opening, provided information about the Cultural Council and promoted the Framingham Bracelet 2nd edition with our new brochure. FCC extends a heartfelt thank you to all who helped to make 2010 a successful year. Our website is at: mass - culture. org/ Framingham Respectfully submitted, P. Nandi Varris, Chair 2010 Cushing Chapel Advisory Committee The Cushing Chapel Advisory Committee consists of eleven members appointed by the Board of Selectmen. The Cushing Chapel Advisory Committee is in the review stage for new and current applicants via the Board of Selectman. Some of the projects undertaken this past year have included the Chapel steeple which was due for refurbishment. The steeple was scraped, sanded, primed and finished with two coats of brilliant white paint by Borg Painting Company. This has resulted in making the outside a pristine and welcoming area for our residents and visitors. Also this past year the Chapel Committee has undertaken producing a new brochure with pictures, a short history of the Chapel and general information about utilizing the Chapel. This beautiful and informative brochure was created by in- house committee members Cynthia Laurom and Karolyne White, who did beautiful work on the brochure. We would also like to thank and acknowledge the Framingham Garden Club whose members keep the grounds lovely with displays of flowers and shrubs year after year, adding to the serene beauty of the Chapel area. In closing, the support of the community, Town officials and Town departments is appreciated and acknowledged by the committee. Respectfully Submitted, Stanton T.

July 26th, 2010 marked the 20th Anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a Federal Civil Rights Law. Though much has been accomplished in 20 years there is still much more that needs to be done to ensure the Town is in compliance with ADA laws. There have been many access improvements to Town buildings. In the Town Hall, the elevator was renovated, upgraded and brought up to code. A new ramp was installed at Town Hall thereby creating a second accessible entrance for people with Disabilities. The Housing Authority developed many new accessible housing units. Many new curb cuts have been installed throughout town. The History Center began to bring the Village Hall into ADA compliance with the installation of a ramp on the side entrance. We look forward to the eventual completion of all accessibility projects on this historical building allowing all people to enjoy it. The Disability Commission also hired architectural firm Mendes, Torrey and Spencer to examine the feasibility of having a handicap ramp at the main entrance of the building. The new Bowditch Field re- opened and is now fully accessible for people with Disabilities. The ADA Transition Plan Sub - committee continues to oversee the implementation of the 2005 Transition Plan to ensure that Town -owned buildings are ADA compliant. In October, FDC members attended the Open Meeting Law Training. The Commission joined with the Department of Mental Health for their event- 2010 "Celebrating Heroes- a Community Recognition Event ". In November, Jeffrey Dougan of the Mass. Office on Disability, attended our FDC meeting to update the FDC on disability matters and access laws. From the HP Fine Account Fund the FDC provided funding assistance to two wonderful programs for children with disabilities. In August, the FDC funded $3,300 to the Lose the Training Wheels program. This program teaches children with disabilities how to ride a bike. In September, we funded $3,750 to the Piers Park Adaptive Sailing program. This program teaches children with various disabilities how to sail a boat. We'd like to say good -bye and thank you to former Commissioner, Thelma Berman. She had been a Commissioner since 2002 and was a long time advocate for people with psychiatric disabilities. We would also like to thank all the Town Departments and Town Meeting for their continued support of our important programs and activities. We will continue to work closely with all Town Departments to ensure that Framingham is in compliance with all State and Federal access/ disability laws. Sincerely, Karen Foran Dempsey, Chair Edgell Grove Cemetery During the 2010, Edgell Grove Cemetery and Mausoleum had 45 full burials. 15 family lots were sold as well as 15 single graves and 5 cremation graves. 37 cremation burials were done, and 3 military markers were installed. Efforts continue on rehabilitation of the chapel, and work continues on computerization General Committees 171 Town of Framingham Annual Report of cemetery records. To date, over 7,000 burial records are computerized. Respectfully submitted, Stan Fitts, Chairman; William F. Welch, Treasurer. Finance Committee The Finance Committee is comprised of nine members appointed by the Town Moderator for a term of three years. The Finance Committee recommends action to Town Meeting regarding the budget and other areas of finance. Other key responsibilities include authorizing disbursements from the Reserve Fund for emergency expenses, authorizing deficit spending for emergency winter - related expenses, approving the expenditure ceiling for revolving funds and monitoring the Town's annual audit. The workload for the Finance Committee requires a commitment of significant time from the volunteers who serve on it. In 2010, the Committee met 26 times, and participated in the Annual Town Meeting and three Special Town Meetings. Members often have significant responsibilities beyond regular Finance Committee meetings. The Committee provides representatives to the Real Property and Capital Budget committees under Town bylaws. In 2010, the Finance Committee representative to the Structural Deficit Review Task Force also chaired the Task Force. The Committee routinely appoints liaisons to Keefe Tech and the School Department to monitor their independent budget development processes. Further, the Committee's three - member Audit Subcommittee meets with the Town's outside audit firm and the Chief Financial Officer's staff to resolve audit findings. 2010 This year was characterized by significant fiscal challenges. Revenue growth was disrupted due to ongoing unpredictability in state and federal government revenue sources, decline in local receipts, especially excise taxes and building permit fees, and limited new growth in property taxes. At the same time, large expenses such as health care, special education out -of- district tuition, and certain collective bargaining agreements continue to escalate faster than revenue growth. The Finance Committee continued to emphasize the need for the Town to break the cycle of living beyond its means, recommending that the Town: • Ensure that salaries and benefits do not grow faster than projected revenue; • Minimize dependence on unreliable revenue sources like grants, revolving funds, withdraws or diversions from the stabilization fund, free cash, and stimulus money to support recurring expenses; • Maximize operational efficiencies in areas such as transportation, building use, purchasing, and maintaining properties; and • Eliminate overlapping functions and duplicate functions through administrative consolidations. The Finance Committee's budget recommendations targeted immediate fiscal realities while laying critical groundwork for long -term financial stability. In FY 2011, the School Department budget difficulties increased. Federal stimulus money began to disappear, and salary increases negotiated in the School Department collective bargaining agreements presented challenges. The Finance Committee took a strong position supporting the need to resolve the increasing structural deficit in the School Department budget, which General Committees 172 Town of Framingham Annual Report served as a catalyst in the creation of the Structural Deficit Reduction Task Force. The Committee also made specific recommendations for addressing several long -term challenges: • equity in collective bargaining; • planning for unfunded liabilities; • health care cost containment; • stability of town services; • economic development; • shrinking new growth; • shrinking revenue growth; and • affordable property taxes. The following Reserve Fund appropriations were made in 2010: $30,000 to cover the cost of a special Senate election, $35,000 for Medicare Taxes. The $30,000 for the elections was returned to the reserve fund after the Town received additional funds from the state. Per provisions of MGL, the Finance Committee authorized deficit spending for Snow and Ice in FY 2010. Members of the Finance Committee as of December 31, 2010: Linda Dunbrack, Chair (2012); Daniel Lampl, Vice Chair (2011); John Zucchi Clerk, (2011); Elizabeth Funk (2013), Leonard Finkel (2013); Laurence W. Marsh (2011); Carol Sanchez (2013), Nicolas Sanchez (2012); Nancy Wilson (2012). The Finance Committee thanks Kurt Steinberg (2010) for his 3 -years of service on the Finance Committee and Steve Feldman (2010) for serving on the Finance Committee and acting as Clerk for the past two years. We also express our appreciation to CFO Mary Ellen Kelley and Assistant CFO Jennifer Pratt for their ongoing expertise and support. 2010 Respectfully Submitted, Linda Dunbrack, Chair Government Study Committee The Government Study Committee had an excellent year. We met nine times with active participation and lively, productive discussion. The committee submitted a warrant article to update the General Bylaws with regard to the Council on Aging. This was passed. We also submitted a warrant article to eliminate the Personnel Board. This was referred back to the GSC by town meeting. We are continuing to work on this issue with the moderator and the Ways and Means Committee. We also evaluated several other warrant articles and reported our findings to town meeting. The committee also had discussions on town versus city form of government, moving town elections to the fall, the Greener Framingham Committee, and town meeting member ethics. We are continuing to work with the Standing Committee on Public Safety on a proposal to curb excessive public safety calls and to research issues involved in possible changes to our form of town government. The Government Study Committee has an ongoing commitment to serving as advisor to town meeting and to the betterment of our town government. We look forward to the future with confidence and enthusiasm. Historical Commission As in years past, The Framingham Historical Commission spent most of its time reviewing applications for building demolition. When buildings slated for demolition were determined to be architecturally or historically significant, General Committees 173 Town of Framingham Annual Report the FHC worked diligently with the owners to seek alternatives to the loss of these valuable resources. The biggest accomplishment this past year was a complete review of Framingham's Cultural Resources Inventory. The members of the Commission, along with some student volunteers from Framingham State University, visited every one of the nearly 700 buildings on the inventory and took updated photographs of each and every one. The new images and updated listing are now available to the public and to the Town's departments. This update will be vitally important as an educational tool and as an aid in the work of historical preservation. We look forward to the challenges ahead in advocating for the Town's rich heritage. Respectfully submitted, David Marks chair Frederick Wallace vice -chair Clint Knight secretary Perry Bent Gerald Couto Paul Silva Jane Whiting Historic District Commission The Historic District Commission "DC) administers the Centre Common District located in Framingham Centre and the Jonathan Maynard District located along Pleasant Street from the First Parish Church to the Mass. Pike The five basic purposes of the Commission are: 1) to preserve the exterior appearance and harmonious relationships of groups of buildings and their related structures that compose an historic landscape designated by the Town as a local historic district; 2010 2) to ensure that changes and additions are compatible and enhancing while preventing incongruous elements that distract from the aesthetic and historic character of the districts; 3) to conduct public hearings in response to applications for Certificates of Appropriateness and to issue decisions in a timely manner; 4) to serve as a knowledgeable and educative resource for the benefit of the districts' citizens and for the Town; 5) to propose the expansion of existing districts and the creation of new ones when the situation warrants. The Commission has continued to respond to inquires from District residents, grant Certificates of Appropriateness, make non - applicability determinations, and develop guidelines for non - compliant properties. Respectfully Submitted, Chris Walsh, Chair Human Relations Commission The Commission is comprised of the following members: Robert Anspach (Chair), Mahmood Akhtar (Vice Chair), Tim Lee (Clerk), Arlene Bernstein, Heidi Pihl- Buckley, Laura Medrano, John Schaefer and Rick Winer. Our Advisors are William Robinson and Ralph Woodward. The Commission meets the second Thursday of each month in the Memorial Building. In January we reviewed the State Ethics Commission Conflict of Interest Law and each member completed the online training program. We also attended the Open Meeting Seminar sponsored by the Town. We participated in an event at Framingham High School celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the formation of the State of Israel. The Commission General Committees 174 Town of Framingham Annual Report participated in the Flag Day event sponsored by the Veteran's Acupuncture Association and the Framingham Elks at Cushing Park. Members participated in a discussion focusing on the No Place for Hate program. We are participating in the planning of a "Spirituality and Mental Health" Seminar as a continuation of our Mental Health Forum held last year. In planning for future forums we reviewed the "MetroWest Adolescent Health Survey" sponsored by the Community Health Care Foundation as a follow -up to our Juvenile Court forum; discussed involvement with the Jewish Alliance for Law and Social Action in anticipation of a program dealing with anti - Semitism. We recently held a group discussion in the Costin Room with Dr. Kayed Kahlil on the Palestinian Issue and the Peace Movement. Our focus continues to be on educational forums. The Real Property Committee The Real Property Committee, which consists of ten Town Meeting Members and representatives of six Town boards, makes recommendations on all matters pertaining to the sale, purchase, lease, or transfer of Town -owned property. The Committee met once during 2010 when articles 6 through 11 on the Annual Town Warrant were discussed: All pertained to temporary or permanent construction easements for Public Works projects in the town; in particular many easements for the Central Street Siphon Replacement Project Respectfully Submitted, Ned Price, Chairman 2010 Technology Advisory Committee 2010 continued to be a challenging year for the Technology Advisory Committee (TAC). The TAC has an immediate and long- standing concern that the Town's Technology Director position has been vacant for 3 years now. In our personal and business lives we all know that technology, well applied, can increase efficiency and decrease costs. Framingham is saving money in salary by leaving this position vacant, but we fear that continued delay in filling this role will ultimately end up costing the Town more money. We would note that we respect and admire the work of the acting Assistant Director of Technology, Carly Melo Premo, and appreciate Carly's continuing to maintain a partnership with the TAC. However, filling the Town's Technology Director position needs to be a priority in early 2011. In contrast, the School Superintendent's decision to hire Adam Seldow as Technology Director in 2008 has yielded solid benefits for the schools. Adam Seldow and his team have implemented server optimization, upgraded core and wireless networking, and replaced aging phone systems, to name a few. The TAC has been pleased to build a partnership with Adam, consulting and advising as needed on various technology decisions. In keeping with its charter, the TAC reviewed the Capital Budget in 2010 and advised on Capital Technology purchases and initiatives.

Membership and function are defined by the FY 11 Operating Budget, Town Warrant Article 27, voted at the FY 2010 Annual Town Meeting. The three primary objectives are: 1) to study the structural deficit within the Operating Budget, 2) to report findings at the 2011 Annual Town Meeting, and 3) to incorporate recommendations in the FY 12 budget. Per Article 27, the Task Force includes one member of the Finance Committee, School Committee, and Board of Selectmen, the Town Manager, Superintendent of Schools, Chief Financial Officer and School Director of 2010 Finance (Betty Funk, Chair; Adam Blumer, Dennis Giombetti, Julian Suso, Steven Hiersche, Mary Ellen Kelley and Edward Gotgart). The Task Force has discussed prior and continuing actions to stabilize the cost of government; performance against financial objectives; modeling recurring and non - recurring revenues and expenses; municipal /school shared services and consolidations; and other actions /investments that could reduce dependency on the property tax while preserving essential public functions. The Task Force will report to the FY 11 Annual Town Meeting.

The operating budget for fiscal 2011 saw the most discussion as Town Meeting approved an appropriation of $204,450,986 for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2010. Town Meeting also met on three occasions for Special Town Meetings. On January 26, Town Meeting met once and discussed two articles. A Special Town Meeting was also convened during the annual meeting on May 12 which met for two nights to consider eight articles. The third Special Town Meeting was convened on October 19 and met for five nights to consider 16 articles. Overall, Town Meeting met 19 times in 2010 to consider a total of 62 articles in fulfillment of its function as the legislative part of town government. At every meeting, Town Meeting members listened carefully, thoughtfully discussed, debated and voted each of the articles presented for their consideration. Town Meeting members this year totaled 186 out of a total of 216 authorized seats (12 seats for each of 18 precincts). Nine precincts had full membership while openings occurred in precincts 2 (2), 8 (3), 9 (2), 10 (1), 14 (3), 15 (4), 16 (4), 17 (7), and 18 (4). Town Meetings are the result of the efforts or many different people. A special thank you is owed to the Town Clerk and her staff. Thanks also go the Board of Selectmen, the Town Manager and his staff, especially to the Building Services Manager and his staff; Town Counsel and Media Services. Town Meeting could not happen without their help and assistance. Also, many hours are spent by the seven Town Meeting Standing Committees (Community Services, Education, Planning and Zoning, Public Safety, Public Works, Rules and Ways and Means) and the Moderator appointed committees (Capital Budget, Finance, Government Study, Real Property and the Technology Advisory) discussing and developing articles to be presented to the Board of Selectmen for the warrants. Each of these committee members are to be highly complimented for their time and dedication to Framingham's town government. Finally, a debt of gratitude is owed to each Town Meeting member for sharing their time and talent by volunteering to be elected Town Meeting members. Their dedication makes Framingham's government function and is very much appreciated. Respectfully submitted, Edward J. Noonan, Moderator Standing Committee on Community Services This Committee is responsible for overseeing the Edgell Grove Cemetery, the CDBG, Fair Housing, Council on Aging, Human Relations, Veteran's Services, Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Departments or Committees. Thomas J. Driscoll, Jr. of Precinct 15 continues to Town Meeting 177 Town of Framingham Annual Report serve as Vice Chairman. 10 of 18 seats are currently filled. The SCCS met twice. At the April 20, 2010 meeting the Committee supported both Articles 3 and 4 submitted by the Community Development Block Grant Committee and the line item for the Parks and Recreation budget contained in the Warrant for the Annual Town Meeting. At the meeting held on October 19, 2010 the Committee discussed the opening of the new Bowditch Field with the Chair reporting that that he and the Vice Chair examined the ADA seating at the stadium. Also discussed were the State's new open meeting law and the Veteran's Services budget. A liaison report about the Human Relations Commission was also heard. To conclude, and in the tradition of the New England Town Meeting, the SCCS looks forward to meet the new challenges of the upcoming year. Respectfully submitted, John R. Dwyer Chairman Standing Committee on Education The Standing Committee on Education concerns itself with the activities, budgets and related warrant articles pertaining to Framingham Public Schools, Joseph P. Keefe Technical School and the Framingham Public Library system. The Committee meets regularly with representatives of each organization. During the course of 2010 the Committee reviewed the Framingham Public School proposed Reorganization Plan and offered reports to Town Meeting on the FY2011 Public School budget, the warrant article proposing to restore school bus funding, 2010 the FY 2011 Keefe Tech budget and the FY 2011 Library budget and the warrant article requesting authorization to pursue a building grant to replace the McAuliffe branch library. Work continues on both budget and strategic concerns in each organization. Respectfully submitted, Melanie Goddard, Chair Standing Committee on Planning & Zoning Report Not Submitted Standing Committee on Public Safety In 2010 the Standing Committee on Public Safety continued in its role of deliberating and reporting to Town Meeting on articles relating to public safety. Due to a number of precinct vacancies, we've faced some challenges obtaining quorums for our meetings this year. This has made it particularly difficult to maintain a focus on initiatives undertaken in previous years, though we continue working to move these issues forward. We look forward to continuing to work with the Police, Fire, and Inspection Services divisions in 2011, as well as continuing to reach out to other boards and committees regarding areas of mutual concern. Respectfully submitted, Graham Steele, Chair Standing Committee on Public Works Framingham's grim financial prospects heavily influenced the committee's actions. The SCPW determined this Town Meeting 178 Town of Framingham Annual Report outlook mandated improved cooperation and liaison between the chair and both the Board of Selectmen and the Administration, as well as the need for the chair to fully inform Town Meeting. Two key issues dominated in addition to the required review of warrant articles. The first was to bring closure to the outstanding sewer billings of major out - of -town accounts as well as over - billing by the MWRA. The SCPW thus voted to call a Special Town Meeting and hire independent counsel to handle collection on a contingency basis. The committee took note that the town hired independent counsel in the SMOC case. As 2010 ended, a SCPW taskforce drafted four articles to be reviewed for a special warrant. Additional answers and data were still deemed necessary from the Administration. We believe independent counsel would be the best way to speed up collections. For example, it took close to 30 years to obtain a successful outcome in the Ashland case, and that the campaign to recoup money from the Natick accounts is already in its 15th year. The other major issue is the delay in activating the Birch Road Wells. The DPW told the SCPW that the main obstacle is the MWRA, and that the problem is "political ". The SCPW, along with the Capital Budget Committee, will research how Town funds have been expended and what can finally be done to expedite activation of these vital wells. Respectfully submitted, Larry Schmeidler, Chair Standing Committee on Rules The Rules Committee meets regularly to discuss ways of improving the workings of Town Meeting (TM). We want TM 2010 members to make informed decisions on motions and have the actions taken recorded in the Town Meeting Journal. We also request reports at the Annual Town Meeting based on motions and resolutions made during the previous year. In 2010, the Rules Committee completed its study of using an electronic tally and display system to count votes at TM. The sub - committee, consisting of Walter Adamski, Ed Kross, and Joel Winett, evaluated a number of systems and selected a system with a mini keypad used to vote YES, NO, or ABSTAIN. Since TM cannot have secret votes, the vote of each TMM is displayed on a screen where it can be verified, recorded, and made public. The proposal brought to the Annual TM requested a modest appropriation but was not approved. Some TM members may have felt that the benefits did not warrant the expense; some may have been uncomfortable with the system and procedures; and others may not have wanted their vote recorded and made publically available. The Rules Committee sponsored warrant articles to change the bylaws (a) to better define TM voting procedures, (b) to request specific reports at TM and, (c) to insure that the actions of TM are recorded in the Town Meeting Journal. TM approved these changes. In addition, the Rules Committee updated the Town Meeting Member's Handbook so that it is a useful working document. Respectively Submitted, Joel Winett, Chair Town Meeting 179 Town of Framingham Annual Report Standing Committee on Ways and Means As defined in the Town by -laws, the Standing Committee on Ways and Means (SCW &M) is responsible for making recommendations to town meeting (TM) on warrant articles sponsored by and /or related to the Finance Committee, the Information Services, Finance, and Human Resources Divisions, and the Board of Selectmen (BOS), the Town Clerk, Town Elections, the Legal Department, the Retirement Board and the Capital Budget and Government Study Committees. Town meeting convened for the Spring 2010 Annual Town Meeting (ATM) and for three Special Town Meetings (STM). In the midst of the severe economic downturn, tackling the 2011 budget for the ATM was extremely challenging. The primary goal was to reduce costs without cutting services. This proved most challenging with the school department budget. The SCW &M recommended that Town Meeting appropriate an additional $600K (from the local options tax revenue) to the school budget. TM supported another motion by the CFO for an incremental appropriation of $400K (negotiated between the school dept., CFO and Board of Selectmen). In the 2011 capital budget the SCW &M recommended and TM voted to eliminate proposed expenses to renovate the exterior lobby of the BOS' office and to build a commercial grade kitchen in the Memorial building to service Nevins Hall. TM approved the appointment of a structural deficit committee at the ATM and also supported the SCW &M's recommendation to eliminate three 2010 positions and change the composition of that committee to seven members. The SCWM also proposed and TM voted to revise the Human Resources Dir. job description to require ability and management experaence in the field of human resources. TM concurred with the SCW &M to refer article 1 from the Fall STM back to the sponsor. It would have authorized the BOS to enter into unrestricted contracts for solar power without TM approval. Article 5 in the Fall STM proposed the elimination of the Personnel Board. TM supported the SCW &M's motion to refer that article to the gov't study committee (GSC) for further evaluation, which is now in collaboration with the SCW &M. An article was presented at the Fall STM requesting approval of a new non -union position classification schedule. The SCW &M recommended and TM voted to refer this article back to the sponsor since the relative wage schedules and financial impact data were not yet available. I want to express sincere appreciation to all committee members. It takes a huge commitment of time and effort to do the extensive work of the SCW &M: Teri S. Banerjee (Vice - Chair) (Precinct 1), David J. Longden, Jr. (Precinct 2), Scott Estes (Clerk) (Precinct 4), Yaakov Cohn (Precinct 5), Thomas Murphy (Former) David Ellis (Current) (Precinct 6), Joel Winett (Precinct 7), Bill Haberman (former) Dorothy Collier (Current) (Precinct 8), Ghafoor A.

ARTICIN 16 To see if the Town will vote to amend its Zoning By -law by adding the following: Section LF Wireless Communications Facilities Temporary Moratorium 1. Purpose and Intent The increasing use of business and personal devices relying on personal wireless service facilities, often referred to as wireless communications facilities, particularly recent changes and trends in the wireless communications industry, such as the advent of 3G and 4G networks, new technologies for wireless communications facilities, and other advances, have generated a significant number of applications for the placement, construction and modification of such facilities in the Town in recent months. Given the rapidly evolving nature of the underlying technology, the Town needs time to review and analyze these changes, advances, and trends in a meaningful and thoughtful way and the range of land use and regulatory issues raised by such facilities. Section 1V.L of the Zoning By -law, which governs Wireless Communications Facilities, was enacted in 1997, soon after the enactment of the federal Telecommunications Act in 1996. Since then, the technology for wireless communications, and wireless communications facilities, has changed and advanced at a rapid pace. Recently, it has become clear that the provisions of Section IV.L need to be re- examined in a comprehensive manner to address these advances. The Board of Selectmen, in recognition of this, is committed to establishing a committee with the necessary expertise to analyze the current and projected future technology and to make comprehensive recommendations for regulating these facilities in compliance with the Telecommunications Act By enacting a temporary, six month moratorium, the Town will have time to develop reasonable regulations regarding the placement, construction and modification of wireless communications facilities. The Town fully recognizes its responsibilities under the Telecommunications Act of 1996. Full and impartial compliance with the Act is best accomplished through thoughtful analysis and subsequent regulatory guidance. Therefore, in reliance on the Town's authority under General Laws chapter 40A and the Massachusetts State Constitution, and in keeping with Toxn Meeting 221 Toavn of Framinghaw 2090 Annual Report the Town's responsibilities to protect public health, welfare, and safety, the Town hereby adopts this temporary moratorium. 2. Temporary Moratorium Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Zoning By -law to the contrary, for a period of six months from the effective date of this amendment, no building permit, special permit, or variance shall be issued for the construction, placement, installation, modification, alteration, or use of any building, structure, or land within the town for the purpose of a wireless communications facility, as defined in Section IV.L this By -law, within the town. Amateur radio towers, to the extent they are exempt from Zoning By -law requirements under General Laws chapter 40A §3, and wireless communication facilities for use by police, fire, or other emergency services are exempt from this moratorium. Pass any vote or any action relative thereto. Sponsor: Board of Selectmen May 6, 2010 Voted: That the Zoning Bylaw be amended by adding a new Section I.F. (Wireless Communications Facilities Temporary Moratorium) as set forth in the warrant and background materials for this Annual Town Meeting. 116 voting in favor, 5 opposed.
