HomeMy WebLinkAbout2011 Annual Report and Town Meeting JournalMASSACHUSETTS O =a { {{�4i•• • ,Sol Annual Report Year Ending December 31, 2011 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. Dedication September 11, 2011 marked the 10' anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks against the United States of America. While many lives were lost that day, the Town of Framingham would like to dedicate the 2011 Annual Town Report to the 17 residents of Framingham who had their lives cut short on that fateful morning 10 years ago.

In 2011, the Town of Framingham experienced many highs and lows, the community suffered tragedy and triumph, and through it all, the residents, businesses and municipal employees persevered. During a SWAT Team drug raid in January, an officer's firearm accidently fired. Eurie Stamps, a resident of the Town, was killed as a result. This accident led to many questions and concerns by the community which triggered the creation of a separate, non- affiliated investigative committee that was formed by Police Chief Steven Carl. The committee created a list of ways in which the Police Department and the Town could avoid incidents like this in the future and developed a plan to help heal the community. This report was given to the Board as well as a large contingency of the community. This tragedy has turned into an opportunity to unite the community and work towards healing the wounds created by this incident. The Board has coordinated with the Framingham Coalition in the organization of community meetings that will be held in several neighborhoods to work on unifying 2011 Annual Town Report TOWN COUNSEL I HUMAN RESOURCES DES I MEDIA SERVICES the community and overcoming this tragedy as a community. During the early months of 2011, Framingham experienced many winter storms that caused a great deal of snow and ice build- up. The removal of this snow and treatment of icy roads caused a financial burden for the Town as well as a strain on DPW resources. We would like to thank the DPW for their hard work during these storms and continued dedication to the Town of Framingham by keeping our roads clear and safe for school buses and residents. 2011 also saw many infrastructure improvements within the Town including a massive water /sewer line replacement project commissioned by the Department of Public Works. Mass DOT also shared in this endeavor as much needed repairs were made to the Fountain Street Bridge and discussions were begun regarding potential repairs to other bridges within the Town during the upcoming year. While these projects will greatly benefit the Town of Framingham they are not without headache. Much concern and aggravation has been created as a result of these projects and we would like to thank the residents of the Town who are impacted on a daily basis for their continued patience and understanding during the construction season. The board continued to work on creating good will between the Schools and Town Departments as well as an agreed upon budget by all departments and the School Committee. This budget allowed Framingham to continue to invest in our Town and our Schools. The board will work to continue this era of good will between the groups and we are looking forward to General Government 1 Town of Framingham working along with the School Committee in the future. Framingham also experienced a change in leadership as Town Manager Julian Suso's tenure came to an end on October 31 ". His departure created a large vacancy that was filled by Town Clerk Valerie Mulvey. Valerie stepped up, like she did in 2006, and agreed to become the Interim Town Manager in October. Valerie has helped move the Town forward once again as she did in 2006, Valerie has done a great job during her interim position and the Board would like to thank her for her dedication to the Town of Framingham. The Board of Selectmen recently responded to the complex and multidimensional tax /assessment issue with a 6 point plan to address this issue and in particular, the questions raised by Board members and the public at large. First and foremost our plan prioritizes the need for an objective and thorough review of the Town's assessing process and specific recommendations for improvement or alteration, based upon the results determined. This plan also includes steps to consider available options for short as well as long term solutions for residential property tax relief. We need to stay focused on this plan and not get derailed. It is our hope that we can all work together —in a respectful and cooperative manner. The Board began working with the FDIC, Community and Economic Development, Planning Board and the Town Manager's office on creating new ways to revitalize not only the downtown but all of Framingham's commercial districts and will continue to do so in the up- coming year. Through 2011, the Board and SMOC worked towards creating a new working relationship. This began with the appointment of Joan Rastani to the SMOC Board of Directors as the Framingham representative. We believe Joan will bring fresh ideas and leadership to the SMOC Board and represent Framingham in a manner we may all be proud of. 2011 Annual Town Report A major project commissioned by the Board during 2011 was the revitalization of the Nobscot Shopping Plaza. The Board has hosted a number of public meetings with residents and business owners of the Nobscot property and asked for their feedback in what they would like to see in their community and neighborhood. Mt. Wayte Shopping Plaza is a high priority as well and the Board hopes to create a working plan with the management group of this facility as well during 2012. At the Annual Town Meeting in April an article sponsored by the Board of Selectmen creating the first Sex offender by -law within Framingham was passed and sent to the Attorney General for certification. The Attorney General notified the Town on December 20` that this by -law had been certified and was able to go into effect. A great amount of debate took place on Town Meeting floor regarding this by -law and the Board would like to thank Town Meeting Members for their input and ultimate passing of this article. This by -law will protect our residents against sex offenders and give the Police Department greater capability in protecting all residents of Framingham and continuing to keep our streets safe. In 2011, the State passed the Municipal Health Care Reform Law which allowed the Town to negotiate new health care plans with all union and non -union employees. This has allowed Framingham to experience savings in year one estimated at $1.7 Million and will lower the base $2.4 Million in subsequence years. The Board would like to thank Town Counsel Chris Petrini and his staff, CFO Mary Ellen Kelley, Former Town Manager Julian Suso and Assistant Town Manager David Williams for their efforts in obtaining these savings for the Town of Framingham. Last but not least, the Board of Selectmen would like to thank the many individuals within the Town who work tirelessly to move Framingham forward and create a better community for tomorrow that we all may be proud to reside in. We would like to thank all General Government 2 Town of Framingham the employees of the Town of Framingham for their dedication to "Excellence in Public Service ". We would especially like to thank the employees located in the Board of Selectmen's office, Cherry Manuel, Maryellen Rupp and Thomas Begin, for their hard work and dedicated service to the public, the Town Manager and the Board of Selectmen. Finally, a special thank -you to all the residents of Town Man Memorial Bui] It is my pleasure to present this Report for calendar year 2011. 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. During the past year the Town has: Hosted meetings with our major corporations to maintain and promote a strong working relationship with our largest employers; Continued Town participation on the Tech Park Advisory Group; Initiated an ongoing dialogue with the School Superintendent and the new president of MassBay Community College to identify and reconcile the needs of both MassBay and the School Department for use of Framingham School buildings; Worked with MassDOT to encourage stabilization of the Rugg Gates properties and transfer ownership to the Town; Participated in working groups to identify approaches to protect Eastleigh Farm from development; Coordinated Town's efforts to successfully protect a $4.5 million federal earmark for downtown improvements and to encourage the State to continue to address the 2011 Annual Town Report Framingham for your trust and loyalty to the Town of Framingham and for giving us the honor of representing you on the Board of Selectmen. Respectfully submitted, Jason Smith, Chairman Board of Selectmen overarching issue of the downtown rail crossings. The Town Manager's Office was also involved throughout the year with negotiations on all collective bargaining contracts, which includes employee health insurance negotiations with the Public Employee's Committee (PEC). A cooperative effort resulted in an agreement that will save taxpayers millions of dollars in the coming years, with a projected savings of $1.4 million savings through Fiscal Year 2013. In 2011, two other major, multi - departmental initiatives were implemented with the involvement of the Town Manager's Office and Board of Selectmen. One initiative involved working with the School Department to privatize the School Transportation function. The other initiative was a change in the Town's property and liability insurance carrier. These two efforts saved the taxpayers approximately $2 million in the first year of implementation. Thank you to the Board of Selectmen for their leadership and support during 2011. 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 its General Government Town of Framingham 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. I thank former Town Manager, Julian Suso, for his efforts on behalf of the Town during his tenure from June 2006 through October 2011. Thank you to Assistant Town Clerk Lisa Ferguson, Election Coordinator Lauren DiGiandomenico, and Administrators Emily Black and Elena Finehouse for maintaining the operation of the Town Clerk's Office during my absence as they continued to provide excellent public service despite being short - staffed for an unexpected, extended period of time. Is 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 68,000 residents contribute to the substantial work load. Assistant Town Clerk Lisa Ferguson manages our daily operations and instructs and supervises staff. Lisa directed the Town Clerk and Elections Departments in November and December while I served as Interim Town Manager at the request of the Board of Selectmen. The Town Clerk Department is responsible for creating and preserving the Town's vital records. The two administrators are Emily Black and Elena Finehouse. Their primary responsibilities are customer service and processing vital records. In 2011, we registered and issued 953 birth certificates, 670 death certificates, 466 marriage licenses, 3565 dog licenses and 605 business certificates. Other responsibilities include: processing 2011 Annual Town Report I am especially grateful to Thomas Begin, Cherry Manuel and Maryellen Rupp for their invaluable assistance to me during this time of transition. They are the welcoming faces of the Selectmen /Town Manager's Office. They treat our public with respect, understanding, and kindness while providing useful information or direction in response to any problem or question posed to them. I thank Town Counsel Chris Petrini and Assistant Town Manager, David Williams for their wisdom, support and guidance during my tenure as Interim Town Manager. Respectfully Submitted, Valerie Mulvey Interim Town Manager requests; issuing underground 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.

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 Election was held on April 5t 4,732 people, 13% of our electorate, voted town wide. General Government 4 Town of Framingham The Annual Town Meeting met over twelve nights in April and May. Four Special Town Meetings were held on January 12th, May 5th, June 21" and October 18th. Our population grew from 66,910 to 68,318 as a result of the 2010 Federal Census. The boundaries of nine of our eighteen precincts changed due to population shifts. All twelve town meeting seats in each of these nine precincts will appear on the Town Election ballot in 2012. I am grateful to Geoff Kovar, GIS specialist for his valuable assistance with our re- precincting efforts. DPW Director Peter Sellers and Town Engineer Jeremy Marsette allowed Geoff to assist us in 2011 as they did in 2010. This saved us considerable time and effort. 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 2011 Annual Town Report professional, knowledgeable and willing to help. We are grateful to Carly Premo Melo and the Technology Services staff for automating many of our operations and Jim Egan and the Building Services staff for facilitating the Town Election. 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.

II. 2011 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 2011. I have included the case name, type of case, and a brief description of the case with the 2011 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. A. OFFICE OF TOWN COUNSEL CASES MATTER TYPE 2011/2012 STATUS/DISPOSITION Boston Properties Contract This case concerns a suit by Boston Properties against the Town to Limited Partnership recover $175,000 in funds from a failed development near Mass v. Framingham Pike Exit 12. Under a 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 litigation centers around Town of Framingham 2011 Annual Town Report 19 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 parties are engaged in discovery, which ends in 2012, to likely be followed by cross - motions for summary judgment by both the Town and Boston Properties. Carney v. Town of Wetlands This case involved 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 numerous trees and dumped brush within a 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 appealed this judgment to the Massachusetts Appeals Court. The Appeals Court issued a ruling on July 11, 2011 affirming the Superior Court's judgment in the Town's favor. The plaintiff filed an application for further appellate review with the Supreme Judicial Court, and, the SJC denied the application. Accordingly, this case has been fully resolved in the Town's favor and is now closed. Corrado v. Town of Wetlands This case involves a certiorari appeal under G.L. c. 249, § 4 by the Framingham plaintiff, Thomas Corrado, of the Conservation Commission's issuance of a determination of applicability (the "Determination of Applicability ") in which it found that the Property contains wetlands subject to the Bylaw and the Wetlands Protection Act. The Determination further required that Mr. Corrado provide a full and accurate wetland delineation plan, bring the Property into compliance with pertinent wetlands laws and regulations, secure proper review, approval and permitting to conduct future activities at the Property, and comply with an enforcement order that the Commission issued on November 19, 2008 determining that the plaintiff undertook unpermitted filling, tree cutting and grading activity on the Property in an Area Subject to Protection in violation of the Bylaw. The Commission filed a counterclaim seeking an injunction requiring the plaintiffs compliance with the enforcement order. On November 10, 2010, the parties filed a stipulation of dismissal whereby the plaintiff withdrew his appeal with prejudice, thereby affirming the terms of the Determination of Applicability. Rather than dismiss the counterclaim, however, the stipulation allowed the counter -claim to continue so that the Commission can ensure that Mr. Corrado brings his property into compliance. Subsequently, on January 19, 2011, the Commission 19 Town of Framingham 2011 Annual Town Report 20 issued a further enforcement order that superseded the first to address new and presently existing violations at the Property. In August of 2011, the Commission filed an amended counterclaim to request an order requiring Mr. Corrado's compliance with the Second Enforcement Order. The Commission intends to move for summary judgment as to its counterclaim in 2012. CSE Framingham This case matter involves a challenge by CSE, the current LLC v. Town of developer of the Danforth PUD (successor to Pulte Homes and Framingham before Pulte, National Development of New England), of the Conservation Commission's January 6, 2010 vote denying CSE's application 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 provide 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, which the Town opposed. In December of 2011, the Superior Court issued an order and written decision denying CSE's motion and dismissed the case. CSE appealed the Court's ruling to the Appeals Court. We anticipate that the Appeals Court will receive the parties' briefs and schedule oral argument in 2012. DPW Local 1116 v. Labor This case concerns the January 2011 termination of Robert Fish, Framingham (Robert who was the Recycling Center Supervisor and a member of DPW Fish Grievance Local 1116. The Union filed a grievance on Mr. Fish's behalf Arbitration) alleging that the Town terminated Mr. Fish without just cause. The Union petitioned for the matter to be resolved by arbitration through the Division of Labor Relations, a state agency that is authorized to arbitrate public employee labor disputes. The arbitration is scheduled for October 2012. 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 accept 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 contended that it has no obligation to accept responsibility for operation and maintenance of infrastructure constructed by a private developer under a 1993 subdivision decision by the Planning Board and, further, that Fafard had not completed certain necessary improvements to the pumping station. Fafard commenced an action against the Town in the Land Court in June, 2010. In 2011, the parties engaged in mediation and reached a settlement whereby the parties agreed to share the costs of removing the pumping station and building a gravity sewer line. The case is now closed. 20 Town of Framingham 2011 Annual Town Report Framingham Labor This case 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 (JLMC) 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 unions 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. Prior to formal fact finding and arbitration, the Town and Local 1652 reached agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement, which was approved by Town Meeting on May 24, 2011. This case is now closed. Framingham Police Labor This case involves a petition filed in August, 2010 by the Officers Union v. Framingham Police Officers union to ask the JLMC to exercise Town of Framingham jurisdiction over the parties' negotiation for a new collective (JLMC) bargaining agreement. Three mediation sessions before JLMC Mediator Brian Harrington did not yield a settlement and the parties participated in a formal fact finding arbitration before the JLMC on February 16, 2012. Following the arbitration, the JLMC will enter an award which will, subject to Town Meeting approval, become the new collective bargaining agreement between the Town and the FPOU for FY 2009 -11. Framingham Police Labor The Framingham Police Officers Union (FPOU) filed this unfair Officers Union v. labor practice charge with the Massachusetts Labor Relations Town of Framingham Commission, now the Division of Labor Resources (DLR), (24 -day work period following the Town's issuance of correspondence to the FPOU in ULP) April of 2007 reaffirming the existence of the Town's 24 day work period pursuant to 29 USC 207(k) of the Fair Labor Standards Act. The FPOU's charge alleged that the Town's correspondence regarding the existence of the 24 day work period was 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 that the 24 day work period was effectively established in 1986, the Commonwealth Employment Relations Board (CERB) issued a 21 Town of Framingham 2011 Annual Town Report 22 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 Town will oppose the Complaint before CERB when it is scheduled for a hearing. 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 Middlesex Superior Court to enjoin the arbitration on the grounds Judgment 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 granting the Town's cross - motion. The FPOU appealed the Superior Court's order to the Massachusetts Appeals Court. After briefs were filed and oral argument held, the Appeals Court issued a decision on September 29, 2011 affirming the order of the Superior Court. The FPOU did not seek further appellate review and therefore this case has been fully decided in favor of the Town and is closed. Framingham Public Labor This case 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 denied the Town's motion to vacate the arbitration award and allowed the PEC's motion to confirm the arbitration award. The Board of Selectmen authorized an appeal of the Superior Court decision. Prior to proceeding with the appeal, the Town and the PEC reached agreement on health insurance benefits for 2011. This case 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 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 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. After Hess Corporation appealed the decision to the Appeals Court, the parties filed a notice of voluntary dismissal of the 22 Town of Framingham 2011 Annual Town Report 23 appeal dated June 7, 2011. This case has been fully decided in the Town's favor and is closed. Levasseur v. Town of wetlands This matter arises out of the Conservation Commission's attempt Framingham to enforce wetlands violations at property owned by plaintiffs Conservation Roger and Dawn Levasseur at 49 Gates Street (the "Property "). Commission The 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 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 the 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 seeking money damages and 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 issued by the Commission. After initially appealing this ruling the Levasseurs elected not to pursue their appeal and it was administratively dismissed by the Appeals Court on August 11, 2011. The parties have not yet commenced discovery practice with regard to the Levasseurs' claims against the Exarchoses or the Exarchoses' claims against the Town. Paulini Loam, LLC v. Zoning This is the first of the Paulin 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 Paulin Loam's application for a special permit to 318083 KCL construct a concrete batching plant at the Property. At the time of the initial application, the property was zoned General Manufacturing. Paulini claimed that the concrete batching plant was allowed under Section III.G.l.a 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 23 Town of Framingham 2011 Annual Town Report 24 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 it has been stayed by the Court for several years. 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 of Framingham, et al, the 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 permit. The second amendment changed the procedures and KCL 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 summary 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 Zoning Board's 2005 decision to uphold the Land Court Misc. Building Commissioner's denial of a building permit for the Case No. 09 MISC proposed concrete manufacturing plant. Paulini's complaint 401214 KCL includes two 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, 24 Town of Framingham 2011 Annual Town Report 25 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 a case filed by Revoli Construction Co., Inc. against the Co., Inc. v. Town of Town on February 25, 2011. Revoli seeks claims against the Framingham Town totaling approximately $300,000 for additional compensation that Revoli alleges is owed by the Town in connection with Revoli's work on a sewer line replacement project on and near Water Street. The Town denies liability and has filed a counterclaim against Revoli for sums expended by the Town in securing Revoli's correction of its defective installation of a large segment of sewer pipe. In 2011 the parties exchanged various motions seeking to modify pleadings and add claims. The parties also served discovery requests. Discovery is expected to continue in 2012. Robinson v. Town of Labor This case concerns the appeal to the Civil Service Commission of Framingham an original appointment bypass. The applicant was a candidate for an original appointment as a firefighter in the Framingham Fire Department. After a background check the Department bypassed Mr. Robinson in favor of another candidate lower on the list of eligible candidates. The matter was scheduled for a hearing in December of 2011. Mr. Robinson failed to appear for the hearing and the Commission dismissed the appeal for failure to prosecute. This case is now closed. SB General Construction This case involves a construction dispute between the Town and Contracting v. Town SB General Contracting, Inc. ( "SB "), the general contractor for the of Framingham New York Avenue Utility Corridor Project ( "Project "), a Town public works project that was performed primarily in 2010. The Project consisted of work on two streets, New York Avenue and California Avenue, and generally involved replacing existing sewer force mains with new larger diameter force mains. In March of 2011, SB filed a lawsuit against the Town claiming the Town breached the Project agreement by failing to pay SB for certain items of work for the Project. The total damages alleged by SB are $341,021 plus interest, which the Town disputes. The parties have engaged in written discovery and the Town recently served a motion for partial summary judgment seeking to dismiss a portion of SB's claims. The parties are presently attempting to resolve the case by voluntary mediation. 25 Town of Framingham 2011 Annual Town Report Spagnuolo v. This case 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 December 2, 2009, as Commission amended by the Commission in January of 2010. The (Land Court Misc. 10 Commission found that the plaintiff had conducted various MISC 424760) 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, 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. On January 5, 2012 the Land Court entered an order transferring this case to the Superior Court in accordance with Land Court precedent holding that the Land Court lacks jurisdiction over wetlands disputes of this nature. The plaintiff appealed the Land Court's order. In 2012, the appeal will be defended by the Town and the Town intends to move for judgment on the pleadings. Spagnuolo v. This case is related to the above action between Mr. Spagnuolo Framingham and the Conservation Commission. On July 7, 2011, Mr. Conservation Spagnuolo filed a certiorari appeal of a further enforcement order Commission issued by the Commission on or about June 22, 2011, which the (Land Court Misc. 11 Commission issued upon the discovery of new wetlands MISC 450184) violations. The Commission removed the case to Federal Court in view of numerous allegations in Mr. Spagnuolo's complaint alleging violations of Federal statutes. The Federal Court remanded the case back to the Land Court on October 6, 2011, on the basis of its determination that Mr. Spagnuolo's allegations constituted defenses rather than affirmative federal claims. On January 5, 2012 the Land Court entered an order transferring this case to the Superior Court on the Town's motion because the Land Court lacks jurisdiction over wetlands disputes of this nature. The plaintiff appealed the Land Court's order. Upon transfer to the Superior Court (subject to the outcome of the Mr. Spagnuolo's appeal), the Commission intends to seek consolidation of this case with the above - referenced litigation between Mr. Spagnuolo and the Commission (i.e., Land Court Misc. 10 MISC 424760). Talmo v. Zoning Zoning /Land This case involves a request by Robert Talmo, owner of the Board of Appeals Use property at 28 Nixon Road, for zoning enforcement with respect to the abutting property at 30 Nixon Road. Mr. Talmo alleges that a barn on the property at 30 Nixon Road, which is in a residential zoning district, is not in compliance with the Zoning Bylaw. The 26 Town of Framingham 2011 Annual Town Report 27 Board has served discovery requests and responses upon the plaintiff. On February 10, 2012 the plaintiff filed a motion for summary judgment. Currently the Town is preparing an opposition to this motion. Talmo v. Zoning Zoning /Land This is a second case filed by Robert Talmo against the Zoning Board of Appeals Use Board of Appeals. By letter dated March 11, 2011, the plaintiff requested that the Framingham Building Commissioner enforce the provisions of the Town's Zoning By -law with respect to the property located at 30 Nixon Road. After the Building Commissioner denied the request, the Zoning Board of Appeals affirmed the denial on appeal. The Board's decision was filed with the Town Clerk's office on September 22, 2011. The plaintiff filed this case in the Land Court as an appeal of the Board's decision. However, because the plaintiff failed to file his notice of appeal with the Town Clerk until October 25, 2011, 33 days after the Board's decision, the Board moved to dismiss the complaint as untimely. Shortly after the Board moved to dismiss the plaintiff withdrew this appeal. This case is now closed. T- Mobile Northeast Zoning /Land This case involves an appeal by T- Mobile of the ZBA's July 13, LLC v. Town of Use 2010 decision denying T- Mobile's application for use and Framingham dimensional 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). The parties filed an agreement for judgment in this matter on January 30, 2012. The Court approved the Agreement for Judgment on January 31, 2012 and entered an order terminating this case. Town of Framingham Contract This matter concerned a suit against the owner /operator of the v. Natick Mall, LLC Natick Collection over unpaid sewer charges from 1995 through 2007, totaling nearly $700,000, as determined by a recent audit of out of town sewer accounts. The Natick Collection 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 successfully moved for summary judgment, obtaining a ruling from the Court that the claims for unpaid sewer charges prior to November of 2004 are barred by the statute of limitations. The parties subsequently reached a settlement on the Town's remaining post -2004 claims and Natick Mall's remaining post -2004 counterclaims. This matter is now closed. Verizon New Tort/ This case was filed by Verizon New England Inc. ( "Verizon ") in England Inc. v. May of 2011 against Defelice Corp.

The Town recently filed a motion to dismiss Mr. Carney's amended complaint and is awaiting the plaintiff's filing of an opposition thereto. Town of Framingham 2011 Annual Town Report Grassia v. Town of Civil Rights This is an action against the Town and two of its police officers Framingham for the allegedly wrongful arrest and prosecution of the plaintiff, Thomas Grassia. (Mr. Grassia is a local attorney.) The plaintiff alleges that there was no probable cause for his August 13, 2004 arrest on felony and misdemeanor charges of intimidation of a witness and criminal harassment. The plaintiff sought compensatory and punitive relief, as well as attorney's fees and costs for harm allegedly suffered pursuant to various provisions of the United States Constitution, 42 U.S.C. § 1983, the Massachusetts Declaration of Rights, provisions of the Massachusetts General Laws, and the common law.

This case is now closed. Nexum v. Town of Zoning This case concerns the developer's appeal of the denial of special Framingham permits in 2004 to construct the Ford's Meadow Project on Nixon Road. The developer contends that the Planning Board abused its discretion in not approving needed special permits by the requisite supermajority. The Planning Board was represented in this case by special counsel Hinckley Allen & Snyder. A trial was held in 2009. In July of 2009, the Court issued a 20 page Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law deciding the case in favor of the Planning Board. Nexum appealed this ruling to the Massachusetts Appeals Court. The Appeals Court issued a ruling on March 18, 2011, affirming the Superior Court's judgment. This case is now closed. Otero v.

Four of these actions are pending before the Appeals Court, and Mr. Tang has served the Town in only one. Mr. Tang filed his brief on January 30, 2012 in this case and the Town's insurance counsel will file the Town's responsive brief shortly. III. Budgetary Overview As in past years, I would like to conclude this report with a brief discussion of budgeting and legal expenses. In 2011 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 approximately two times greater than the Town's FY 2011 appropriation of $623,000. Below is a chart summarizing the revenue, mitigation and avoided expenses achieved in FY 2011 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 2011 Revenue, Mitigation and Avoided Expenses Matter: Description: Payments Received Payments received in FY2011 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, 2007 litigation settlement IMA between Ashland and Framingham. This represents an in FY 2011 approximately 200 -fold increase over what Framingham received $942 from 1964 -2003 under the 1963 Intermunicipal Agreement with (Revenue) Ashland ($5500 per year). Through 2011 the Town has received over $6 million dollars in payments from Ashland ($6,169,016) under the successful 2004 Decision and the 2007 IMA that resulted. Pelham Apartments By virtue of a prior year's favorable summary judgment ruling and Framingham achieved in the Pelham litigation, the Town was able to cease trash Housing Authority collection at the 550 units at the Pelham Apartments, which results in Trash Collection avoided expenses estimated at more than $100,000 per year. By $300,000 virtue of the Pelham ruling, the Town also was able to cease trash (Avoided Expense) collection at 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 without adjusting for inflation. Calvao, et al. v. Town As a result of the United States Court of Appeals for the First of Framingham Circuit's March 17, 2010 decision affirming the District Court's $150 decision allowing the Town's Motion for Summary Judgment with (Avoided Expense) respect to the Town's establishment of a 24 -day work period under 30 Town of Framingham 2011 Annual Town Report While we certainly cannot promise that the revenue, mitigation and avoided expenses achieved in FY 2011 by the Office of Town Counsel will continue at the same level in the future, we will continue to exercise creativity, diligence, and our best legal skill 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.

In closing, the accomplishments documented in this annual report could not have been achieved without the commitment of each and every member of our small but dedicated, motivated and innovative Technology Services staff. Once again, I thank each of them for another year of proud accomplishments. The Building Services Department is primarily tasked with the facility maintenance of multiple Town -Owned buildings throughout the Town of Framingham. The department has been restructured in the last fiscal year to create two new positions after losing the longtime Director and Assistant Director through attrition. The newly created positions include a Working Foreman and Administrative Assistant. The department head for this department works directly under the jurisdiction of the Assistant Town Manager. Facing decreasing budget allocations and minimal staffing numbers, the department has modified its approach to obtaining its goals. Due to the aging of the buildings and the maintenance needs required, the department has subcontracted the general cleaning services of the Memorial Building out to a private contractor. This has allowed the staff of Building Services to focus their attention on the maintenance needs for the Town - Owned buildings. We have been working diligently, in collaboration with the Parks Department, to create a much safer and cleaner appearance for all Town citizens to see and appreciate when visiting the Memorial Building for regular business matters. The Memorial Building is enclosing on the completion of the window renovation capital 2011 Annual Town Report project, which has increased energy efficiency for the building. The central air conditioning project is scheduled to begin in March 2012, with an anticipated 90 day completion date. These projects are being overseen by the Town's Capital Project Manager and coordinated with the Building Services Department to ensure effective and efficient results. The plans and funding have also been allocated to have the Nevin's Hall floors refinished once the interior painting has been completed. In addition to facility management, the Building Services Department is responsible for the management of three Town operated parking lots. These include the Pearl Street Garage, Hollis Street Parking Lot, and the Waverly Street Parking Lot. By working in collaboration with local community service representatives, the department has been able to properly clean these parking locations to regularly remove garbage and debris. I would like to thank my staff, Raymond Spurgeon, Gregory Adams, David DeMeo, Ashley Borges, Charles Weld, Ken Green, Ron Spurgeon and Doug Thibault, for their continued dedication to the Town of Framingham. Respectfully Submitted, Eric Heideman, Foreman, Building Services 36 Town of Framingham December 1, 2011 marked my third year of service as the Capital Building Projects Manager for the Town of Framingham. It has been a privilege to serve in this capacity. During the past year, I have been able to better understand the existing conditions of many of the Town -Owned properties, and determine where the financial and technical challenges exist moving forward. Many Town -Owned Buildings are in need of help in the form of renovations or reconstruction in various degrees. Deferred maintenance has often been used to cut costs. This "sense" of saving money is actually false economy. Taking care of buildings before they crumble will save money in the long run. As the Capital Building Projects Manager my duties include working with the Town Manager to help envision and expedite strategic building projects. The project this year included: Replacing all the Memorial Building Windows; repairing the Vault and Accounting Office Space and Floors; Maynard Building work; repair working on the Fire Department Headquarters, various Fire Stations and the Main Library. On these project I have acted as Project Manager, OPM, Architect and Clerk with the idea of providing a savings to the Taxpayers of Framingham. This has saved the Town considerable time and money since only on salary has to be paid for this work instead of four. The challenge is to do more with less, to manage time for the research, design, bid, execution and monitoring of all project simultaneously. The requirement is to keep the clients of each building happy while creating dust, noise and, ultimately, accomplishment. The position of Capital Building Projects Manager has also allowed me to be an energy 2011 Annual Town Report advocate on behalf of the Selectmen of Framingham. The desire is to decrease the energy consumption of Town -Owned Buildings. This will serve three purposes: 1. Saving the Framingham Tax payer's money 2. Reducing the "carbon footprint" of Framingham 3. Repairing or replacing the existing, outdated equipment, as required. This part of my position has been interesting to me since energy saving technology has always been one of my keen interests. This part of my job has drawn the attention of State Officials and afforded the Town of Framingham the opportunity to take advantage of federal stimulus funding. This has created good jobs in Framingham over the past year. As the Capital Building Project Manager during 2011, my position has included working the Framingham Disability Commission. I have met with the Disability Commission and the Historical Commissions within Town to learn, listen and understand their views and positions on key historical buildings regarding handicapped building access. These concerns are as follows: 1. Construction of a ramp to the Union Street entrance of the Memorial Building 2. The construction of a sloped walkway at the Village Hall 3. Ongoing discussions to make existing entrances at the Main Library ADA compliant. 4. Completing these projects while maintaining the historical significance of all these buildings Another major project this office has taken on is the exterior renovation of the Jonathan General Government 37 Town of Framingham Maynard Building as well as portions of the Memorial Building. The main goal during these renovations is to maintain the original historical details intact. The mission of The Government Channel is to serve the community as a valued resource by providing timely news and events to inform Framingham residents on town programs and services. We do this by producing video coverage of public meetings, development of original series, and displaying important town announcements on our municipal electronic bulletin board. The Government Channel is dedicated to programming which supports the goals and objectives of the various town departments, also to make the proceedings of local government more accessible to the public. Some of the outreach, engagement activities, and production support that the government channel has participated in 2011 include the Memorial and Veterans day observance ceremony, Human Relations Commission lectures, DPW neighborhood meetings, Redistricting forums, New Open Meeting Law training, Park and Recreation updates, Arbor day education and observance, General Chemical site assignment hearing series, September 11` observance ceremony, Nyanza public hearings, Holiday season concert, and Live election night analysis. The Government Channel also carries regular live coverage of the Board of Selectmen's Meetings, Planning Board and Town Meeting. Monthly coverage of the Framingham Ml The Licensing Office issued with the Board of Selectmen and /or Town Manager's approval 2011 Annual Town Report Respectfully Submitted, Douglas J. Goddard, AIA Capital Building Projects Manager Disability Commission and special coverage of Board of Health are an important component of the channel line -up that gives residences instant access to Framingham government both on their cable system and via the internet The Government Channel can be viewed on RCN channel 13, Comcast Channel 10, and Verizon Channel 42. Programming schedules are available on the town's website, by accessing the government access portion of the department directory or at: www.framinghamtv.com The Government Channel through its programming is compiling complete and accurate public records for the Town of Framingham. Throughout the year a major effort to transfer historic archive videotapes to DVD has been undertaken. In addition to being a desirable format, DVD disks provide a more reliable and durable public record. These video recordings provide an enhanced ability to assess the accuracy of official print records of meeting minutes. All programming is available to the public upon request; selectmen, planning, and town meetings are also available via streaming video on demand for Internet viewing. Respectfully submitted, Ron J.

Other responsibilities of the Chief Financial Officer include participation in TREASURER/TAX COLLECTOR .ETIREMENT SYSTEM 2011 Annual Report management of workers' compensation claims; management of the health insurance plan, participation in collective bargaining and membership on the Retirement Board. Calendar year 2011 was a step toward financial stability. For the first time in many years the Town was able to appropriate a level service School budget. While expenditure growth still exceeds revenue growth, the trend is slowing due both to increasing state aid and cost containment efforts. The Town must still live within its means. During calendar year 2011 the Town and the Public Employee Committee agreed to two new health insurance contracts that reduce the cost of health insurance both to the Town and to employees. The expectation is that health insurance will reduce its burden on the budget in FY13. The Town continued its investment of the room and meals tax to the Stabilization fund reaching a level of 3% of the total budget. If this plan is followed through FY15, the Town will have funded the Stabilization Fund to its policy level of 5% of the total budget. Continued responsible financial management is critical to the forward progress of the Town. This Division has absorbed more responsibility without adequate resources, yet still provides the clarity and transparency of information to Town residents and excelling in their fiduciary duties. The staff has produced more data to more residents and officials than ever before and posted more information to Finance 40 Town of Framingham 2011 Annual Report the Town website than has ever been posted before.

The Treasurer/ Collector's Office continues to provide customer service and essential municipal services. As always, I am indebted to my staff for the firs -class job they do on my behalf as well as the Town of Framingham. Our operating system on Munis continues to be updated on a regular basis. Collection amounts and percentages were as follows. Real Estate taxes collected were $ 144,918,025.47 (97.73 %) , and Personal Property taxes were $9,731,108.49 (98.37 %). Excise Taxes collected were $ 5,072,039.86 (86.44 %). Excise tax is collected on a calendar -year basis, which is reflected in the lower collection percentage. Tax Title collections were $ 2,055,865.80, including interest and penalties. We have continued to work hard on delinquent taxes in every area and recently foreclosed on an unoccupied property and will schedule an auction soon.We have implemented the use of credit /debit card swipe machines and promoted our web based online biller and payment services in the Tax Collectors Office, to improve customer service. Earnings on general fund investments for the year totaling $ 139,034.07 were below budget. We continue to monitor the bank rates to maximize our earnings. The Town's Bond Rating is currently at Aa2 with a Challenging outlook in FY 2012 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 over, such as per capita income levels. We issued one multi- purpose bond anticipation note in 2011 , awarded to J.P.Morgan Securities Inc., in the amount of $33,167,977 , including a premium of $893,545.30 and net interest cost of 0 .2909 %., and a coupon rate of 3.00 %. Additionally we issued a general obligation bond in the amount of $34,302,000 for multiple projects awarded to Raymond James & Associates, Inc. NY. at a true interest cost of 3.03309 % among several bidders. The bid included a premium of $ 1,545,820.62. This was the most competitive rate in the face of stable fed fund rates. Additionally, the Town issued interim loans totaling $2,749,924.00 through the Massachusetts Water Pollution Abatement Trust at a rate of 0 .25 %, as well as permanently financing sewer projects in the amount of $20,859,233.77 at a rate of 2.00 % for various sewer improvement 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. As 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, 2011. The second schedule shows the debt issued and outstanding during Fiscal Year 2011. Respectfully submitted, Stephen W.

The Board of Assessors' annual report for calendar year 2010 with statistics from Fiscal Year 2011 is as follows: Because of the values established in Fiscal Year 2011, we received 502 abatement applications. These applications represented 2.44% of the total tax bills issued for Fiscal Year 2011. In Fiscal Year 2012 the residential class contributed $13.7 million dollars in new value. This growth was attributed to improvements made to the residential inventory during 2011 including new construction, remodeling and additions completed during the year. Commercial, Industrial and Personal Property growth added $36.2 million dollars of new taxable improvements to the CIP tax base with the largest contribution growth attributed to the completion of 74 New York Ave. I would like to thank the Board of Assessors members Mrs. Kathryn Pierce, M.A.A & Mr. Arthur Holmes for their work throughout the Fiscal Year. Additionally I would like to thank the Assessing Department staff for all their hard work throughout the year. Also, I would like to thank Mr. James Sullivan, Esquire for his legal assistance. After making a presentation to the Board of Selectmen on December 19, 2011 for the Fiscal year 2012 Tax Rate Classification Hearing, the Board voted to adopt a 75% shift in values of the Commercial, Industrial and Personal Property classes of property to maintain the share of the tax levy borne by these classes in Fiscal Year 2012. The Fiscal Year tax rates are: Residential - $16.94 and Commercial, Industrial and Personal Property - $38.05.

Granted Town of Framingham 2011 Annual Report 0 Purchasing N 111 - Memorial Building, Rm 1231508-! The Purchasing Department seeks to identify the best overall value when expending public funds for goods and services. The Department ensures that purchases are made in accordance with local bylaws and in compliance with Procurement statutes of the Commonwealth. Purchasing has works closely with every Town department to produce invitation for bids for a multitude of projects ranging from floor finishing to Tax Title Auction services. Routine contracts were awarded for School Department lunch commodities such as bread, milk, and food supplies; Police Department vehicle towing; Recreation Department park mowing; and various internal services such as photocopiers, insurance services, and cleaning services. The Purchasing Department posts all invitations for bid on the Town's website, and advertises larger procurement The Framingham Retirement System is a member of the Massachusetts Contributory Retirement System, governed by Chapter 32 of the Massachusetts General Laws, and is Managed by a five member Retirement Board which consists of: Richard G. Howarth, Jr. Town Accountant -Ex- officio Member opportunities locally and in the Massachusetts Central Register. The Department is currently staffed by a part -time assistant, Mona Haywood. David Williams, Assistant Town Manager & HR Director also serves as the Chief Procurement Officer. The Department has been grateful for its unpaid intern in 2011 — Eric Heideman, who was later hired as a Foreman in the Building Services Department. In the coming year, the Purchasing Department will continue to seek out the best available pricing, including leveraging our options and selectively participating in purchasing consortia. The Purchasing Department will continue to conduct due diligence on every major purchase in order to get the best value for taxpayer dollars. David R.

Griffin, Executive Director Finance 81 Town of Framingham POLICE I FIRE As we move into 2012, it continues to be my honor and privilege to serve as Chief of Police for the Town of Framingham and I respectfully submit this annual report to the community, on behalf of the men and women of the Framingham Police Department. I am extremely proud of the Department and the excellent service which it provides to those who live, work, and visit Framingham. It is and has been my philosophy that we must strive to serve the community in the most efficient manner possible. During my tenure as Chief, I have continually sought new avenues to improve our effectiveness and increase the Department's efficiency, accountability and productivity. Given the current fiscal climate, these efforts are now more important than ever. Even with limited resources and financial predictions which have required a reduction or elimination of certain services, the Department's dedicated staff is committed to delivering the very best public safety services possible. We remain proud to protect and serve the Town, while recognizing the value of excellence in public safety. This excellence has been recognized by our peers in public safety and the Department is proud to be leader in our industry. We have again achieved State Accreditation and are one of a small number of departments in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to have earned this stamp of approval. During the past year, the men and women of this department have achieved outstanding accomplishments in the areas of community partnerships and crime suppression. With the community's 2011 Annual Report SERVICES V .1 11 continued support, we look forward to continuing this success in the coming year. 2011 Police Personnel Resources Chief 1 Deputy Chief 3 Lieutenants 12 Sergeants 13 Administrative Aide 1 Patrol Officers 86 Dispatchers 5 Civilian Staff 6.5 Animal Control 2.5 Crossing Guards 15 Emergency Management Framingham Emergency Management Agency (FrEMA) directs all emergency management operations in the Town of Framingham. 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 manmade 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. Town of Framingham Annual Report In September 2010 Frema in concert with Framingham department of public 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 2011 the system made 35 calls contacting 395,515 residences and businesses. A survey was conducted with the system in December 2007 and 95.4% of respondents stated they felt safer with the system in place. This year was extremely challenging as we had two events, Hurricane Irene in August and the Halloween snow storm that disrupted power in Framingham for several days. Each event the emergency operations center was activated and worked closely with Nstar. We continue to work with Nstar to be better prepared in the event of prolonged power loss. 2011 In 2010 Framingham also joined five other communities (Ashland, Natick, Holliston, Hopkinton and Sherborn) to form the Metrowest Regional Emergency Planning Committee. This planning committee conducted a tabletop exercise on November 17, 2011. The exercise tested our ability to communicate and effectively move assets during a multi - agency event. 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. Jail Diversion Program During 2011 the Jail Diversion Program evaluated 683 individuals with mental illness that the police department had come into contact with. Of those 683 evaluations 124 had committed minor arrestable offenses but were diverted away from arrest and into mental health treatment programs. Fifty eight of the evaluations would normally have been evaluated at the Emergency Room at Metrowest Medical Center but instead were diverted away and handled by the program's clinician. Ten of the individuals were in fact arrested for their offences but due to their mental health condition received court ordered treatment instead of punitive sanctions.

We were successful in obtaining some outside funding through grant awards from the Federal Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program, Massachusetts 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: • Assistant To Firefighters Grant (AFG): $21,600.00 pay for new Thermal Imagers • SAFE - Student Awareness of Fire Educations: $6,300.00 public safety education • MDU- Mobile Decontamination Unit: $3,000.00: training and maintenance of state De -Con Unit In addition to the new Thermal Imaging Equipment, the department was granted Capital Acquisition money from the Annual Town Meeting and we were able to purchase new protective coats and pants for all of our personnel along with new Automatic Defibrillators and upgraded Hazardous Gas Detection equipment. The department is fortunate to have firefighters who serve in the Armed Services and the Town and Department provide assistance and support to the families of these military members when they are deployed for active combat duty; many thanks 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: • Unified Fire and Police Fire Investigation Unit (FIU). • Fire District #14 Regional Technical Rescue Operations. • Fire District #14 Collaborative Dive and Underwater Recovery Unit. • Tactical Emergency Medical Team (TEMS). • State Wide Hazardous Materials Response. • Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency. • Regional Emergency Planning Committee (REPC). 2011 Public Safety & Health 88 Town of Framingham Annual Report 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 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.

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 for 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.

The Inspector investigates and works in conjunction with other town departments to handle complaints by citizens and town departments to assure the safety of Framingham's residents, their guests, and the ever - increasing Framingham business community. 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 2011 Public Safety & Health 89 Town of Framingham Annual Report aware of fire safety. A total of $201,967.20 was collected in revenue and deposited in the general fund in 2011. $113,899.36 was collected in non - permit fees, such as 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 is parallels the commercial driver's license course. This training helped to identify needs and establish some goals and objectives for the upcoming year's master box annual fees and site inspections. $88,659.84 was collected in permit fees. 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 will remain proactive in regards to safe emergency vehicle operations. 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 2011 Public Safety & Health 90 Town of Framingham Annual Report 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 rescue, collapse rescue, confined space rescue, hazardous materials response and dive team operations are all specialized 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. Seven (7) new master boxes were added in 2011. We now have a total of 917 boxes in service in strategic locations throughout Framingham. Of the 917 boxes, 560 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, twenty -eight (28) school zone signals and two (2) 30mph `S' curve signals. The following is a breakdown of traffic signal repairs: 64 calls for traffic signals not working; 13 calls for signal heads turned; 32 calls for re- lamping traffic signals; areas that the Department is fortunate enough to have several members actively participating with established teams. Members of the Department that are not be trained to the operational level must be trained to a support level to be able to operate in any technical rescue. In addition to having our own highly skilled Dive Team the Framingham Fire D partlnent works cooperativej with the State Hazardous Material Response Team and the Fire District 14 Technical Rescue Team 123 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. 14 traffic signals knocked -down in motor vehicle accidents: 5 were reported to the Police Department, 9 were hit and run. The Fire Department is responsible for the cost of replacing these knockdowns. 95 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 the end of the school year. The Division installed approximately 2,685 feet of new fire alarm cable for new master boxes and replacement of deteriorated cable. 27 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. 2011 Public Safety & Health 91 Town of Framingham Annual Report 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.

Currently AMR is contracted to provide three Advanced Life Support (ALS) Paramedic level ambulances. Framingham has experienced a steady rise in medical calls as we responded to 6,557 calls for medical assistance in 2011; this is an approximate 4% increase over 2010. 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. Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors Save Lives Respectfully Submitted, Gary T.

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. Moderate rains during the spring and early part of the summer produced normal mosquito activity through mid- summer. Frequent rains during August and September resulted in large populations of floodwater mosquitoes. The adult mosquito surveillance program used traps to collect mosquitoes from 5 Framingham locations. Data was compiled from 29 mosquito trap collections over 9 nights. 2011 Public Safety & Health 96 Town of Framingham Annual Report During the summer and early fall, selected trap collections from Framingham and other Project communities were tested for West Nile Virus (WNV) and EEE by the Mass. Dept. of Public Health. During 2011 there were 6 human WNV cases in the State including 5 cases from the metro- Boston area and 2 EEE cases that were contracted in southeastern Massachusetts. A graduate student intern monitored recently constructed stormwater detention basins within the district to evaluate the capability of these sites to produce mosquitoes following individual rain events and during periods of frequent rains. The larval mosquito control program relied on the larvicides Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis (Bti) and methoprene, which are classified by the EPA as relatively non- toxic. An April helicopter application of Bti controlled mosquito larvae at 69 wetland acres. Field crews using portable sprayers applied Bti in the spring and the summer to 20 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 6,059 roadside catchbasins. Culex mosquitoes are considered the primary vectors of WNV For adult mosquito control, there were 6 crews assigned to apply Sumithrin to 3,870 acres at night using truck mounted aerosol sprayers when survey traps indicated high mosquito populations. Advance notification of the spray program was done through notices in the MetroWest Daily News and on the Town website. The Project used an excavator to maintain waterways at four sites including 158 feet of a channel by Georgetown Drive and Walnut St., 57 feet by Grant St. Extension, 96 feet by Bishop St. and 81 feet of a waterway by Sloane Drive. Hand tools were used to remove debris from waterways at two sites including 246 feet of a channel by Grant St. Extension and 200 feet by Raleigh Rd. 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.

FY2011 Fees Collected: $1,329,806 For 2011 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. The mission of the Building Department is to provide knowledge and service regarding local, state, and federal codes and standards in a manner which supports our commitment to the safety of our residents and to the integrity of the department. We willingly participate in programs of continuing education to keep our staff informed of the latest technology and requirements within the building trades industry as well as customer service and computer literacy. The year of 2011 was a carbon copy of 2010 in that the permits and inspections were virtually at the same levels. Some very interesting high end construction projects were undertaken this year by Genzyme, Bose, Staples, Boston Heart Labs, Town of Framingham DPW, TJX, and the Edward M. Kennedy Health Center. New single and two family homes remained at last years' pace while residential additions and renovations were at record levels which is a leading indicator of our economic times whereas consumers are either buying existing homes or fixing what they currently have. The valuation on commercial permits has dropped by 50% however this could be attributed to size or type of buildings which normally changes year by year. The Nuisance Officer has investigated and pursued over 500 cases involving Trash & Debris, Commercial Vehicles, Unregistered Vehicles and Vehicles Parking within the front Setback. Code Enforcement inspectors responded to over eight hundred (800) complaints of which more than 50% involved housing. The report illustrates that the inspectors addressed 58 Rooming House, 77 Illegal Public Safety & Health 98 Town of Framingham Annual Report Apartment, 27 Basement Apartment complaints and monitored 186 foreclosed properties. Sign enforcement and permitting was a constant challenge due to the Sign Officer position being cut by 50 %. Sign enforcement activities are down by comparison as a result of this cut. Next year's challenge shall be compounded by the Sign By -law requirement that every sign in town be compliant by December 1, 2012. The Plumbing -Gas Inspector and Electrical Inspector averaged 8 to 12 inspections per day and also responded to an average of 1 -2 after hour calls per week from the Fire and /or Police Department. The two Building Inspectors averaged 10- 12 inspections per day each and also conducted over 100 Liquor License inspections from October 15` thru January 6` Both inspectors responded to an average of 2 -3 after hour calls per week from the Fire and /or Police Departments. The office staff processed over 2300 Building Permits, 1706 Plumbing & Gas Permits, and 1424 Electrical Permits as well as the general administrative day to day duties. Our Plans Examiner processed over 1450 plans and documents. I would like to thank all the Town of Framingham officials, and departments that we have worked with during the course of the year. We at the Building Department appreciate the knowledge and professionalism exhibited town wide. I would like to personally thank the Information Technology Department for their knowledge and dedication in implementing the changeover of our permitting system that will streamline permits and inspections. In closing, I extend a special THANK YOU to the entire Building Department staff whom I have truly appreciated working with during this past year. Our combined efforts have proven to be an asset to the Town of Framingham. Respectfully submitted, Michael A.

In 2011, the Department inspected 1216 weighing and measures devices, including scanning audits. The Department collected $43,761 in inspection and sealing fees during 2011. This surpasses the revenue for 2010. The Department issued 10 civil citations in calendar year 2011, for the following: pricing errors (scanning), unsealed gasoline meters. The total fines amounted to $4612.50 for the calendar year of 2011. The non - criminal average fine was $461.25. The Department had NO cases in Framingham District Court (criminal) for overcharging consumers. The Department during 2011 saved consumers and businesses in Framingham well into the hundreds 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 well over 4075 items in local retail stores to ensure that they scanned correctly. The Department found that 99.1% were priced correctly, 8% was underpriced and .1 % was overpriced. This was an improvement over the previous years and shows that our education and inspection program is working. The Department investigated approximately 15 consumer complaints during the year. I want to thank Mr. Michael Tusino, the Acting Director of Inspectional Services, the town's part time Weights & Measures Inspector, Edward R. Gentili, and the Office Manager of Inspectional Services, Mary Tiziani for all their help and assistance. Respectfully Submitted, Edward R. Seidler Sealer of Weights & Measures Public Safety & Health 100 Town of Framingham W 2011 Annual Report Peter A. Sellers, Director of Public Works 508 -532 -5610 Paul G. Barden, Deputy Director of Public Works 508 -532 -6053 William R. Sedewitz, Chief Engineer 508 -532 -6012 Jeremy T. Marsettte, Town Engineer 508 -532 -6092 David K. Brunell, Director of Water and Wastewater 508 -532 -6052 Daniel S. Nau, Director of Highway & Solid Waste 508 -532 -6032 Fred J. Davies, Director of Fleet, Facilities & Communications 508 -532 -6073 Darren Guertin, Conservation Agent 508 -532 -5152 Diane M. 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. In 2011 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 have resulted in significant reductions in Sewer System Overflows (SSO's). During 2011 twenty -eight major capital improvement projects were completed or advanced. Almost fifty -four thousand linear feet (over ten miles) of water and wastewater mains were replaced or rehabilitated. Locations included Concord Street, A Street, Gorman Road, Grant Street, Grant Street Extension, Hartford Street, Arthur Street, Old Connecticut Path, Edgell Road, Auburn Street, Auburn Street Extension, Beulah Street, Elder Street, Eliot Street, Mansfield Street, Pond Street, Everit Avenue, Lawrence Street, Webster Street, Kingsbury Street, Clark Street, Clinton Street, Bishop Street, Winthrop Street, Coburn Street, Bridges Street Extension, Saucier Street, Naples Street, Hilton Street, Pleasant Street, and New York Avenue. 101 Town of Framingham Construction continued on the new A Street wastewater management facility. This facility is expected to be operational in May 2012. Rehabilitations of the Pleasant Street and Grove Street Water Pump Stations commenced and both projects are expected to be completed in March 2012. Storm drain system improvements included replacement of over five thousand linear feet of pipeline on Concord Street and Edgell Road and a three foot by six foot box culvert crossing Roaring Brook on Route 30 near the Framingham /Southborough town line. Major transportation projects included the reconstruction of eighteen hundred linear feet of roadway and twenty three hundred linear feet of sidewalk on Water Street; the reconstruction of twenty three hundred linear feet of roadway and twenty nine hundred linear feet of sidewalk and the installation of three raised crosswalk tables on State Street; and the resurfacing of forty six hundred linear feet of roadway on Saint Lo Street, Guadalcanal Road, and the southern portion of Concord Street. The Division also coordinated with the MassDOT to advance several bridge projects. Construction was substantially completed on the Fountain Street and Danforth Street bridge replacement projects and designs progressed for the replacement or rehabilitation of the Winter Street Bridge over the CSX Railroad, the Central Street Bridge over the Sudbury River in Saxonville and the Wickford Road Bridge over the Sudbury River. MassDOT is scheduled to bid the construction for the Winter Street, Central Street, and Wickford Road Bridge projects in mid to late 2012. In 2011, eighteen design projects were advanced, six to completion. Significant ongoing design work includes sewer capacity improvements downstream of the Technology Park and transportation and streetscape improvements in the downtown area. The Division is pursuing grant funding over and 2011 Annual Report above the $12.9 million already obtained through the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) to continue infrastructure improvements necessary to support additional economic development in the Technology Park and has secured almost $5 million in federal funds for the downtown transportation improvements. The Division is also advancing the permitting necessary to reactivate the Birch Road well field. This effort includes working with the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to refine a sophisticated groundwater model. While the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) delayed the release of the new NPDES Phase II Stormwater permit, the Division continued its planning efforts based on the requirements contained in the draft version of that permit. Work included outfall testing and inspections, public education and outreach, and quantifying the resources (staffing and funding) that will be necessary for compliance if the terms of the final permit are consistent with those in the draft version that the EPA promulgated. Also completed was the second phase of a comprehensive town -wide Stormwater Master Plan. In addition to updating the GIS system to capture the significant amount of construction work completed by DPW, the Division also assisted several other departments in 2011. These included the School Department with elementary school enrollment mapping, the Town Clerk's office with the 2010 Census redistricting process, the Board of Health with environmental action mapping, and the Middlesex District Attorney's office in support of several school /park zone drug cases. The Division continued the document scanning efforts initiated in 2010. In 2011, six thousand additional historic paper records were scanned and inventoried. The Division reviewed three hundred and forty seven plan submittals received either 102 Town of Framingham directly or routed to DPW from the Building Department, Planning Board or Zoning Board of Appeals; and processed four hundred and ninety seven Street Opening Permits and three hundred and eighty three Trench Opening Permits. 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 public shade 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. 2011 construction projects completed by Town and contracted personnel included the installation of 290 linear feet of new drain line, stormwater pipe and catch basin installation on Waverley Street, drainage system installation on Spring Street, as well as the repair of 104 drainage structures and cleaning of 105,000 feet of drain line. 1,550 feet of drain channels were dredged by the State Trust Agency for mosquito control and 277 drainage structures were repaired or adjusted in conjunction with the Capital Road Program. The Division also upgraded the drainage system at the Western Ave Public Works Facility by installing 160 feet of drain line and a precast headwall. The Division has instituted a monthly inspection process in its proactive drainage structure maintenance program. 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, 1,000 feet of channel realignment, a pumping station, interior drainage and a vehicular flood gate. 2011 Annual Report 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 catch basins utilizing both Town crews, as well as contracted services, to remove silt, sand, and debris from approximately 5,680 catch basins. Over 1,295 tons of catch basin debris was removed from catch basins and hauled to an accepting facility by Town equipment and personnel. The storm drain cleaning program has continued to produce a significant repair list as the inspection process progresses. The Beaver Dam Brook and Hop Brook continue to be significant operational challenges for the Division as even modest rain events may cause the brooks to surcharge at the many culvert headwalls in both South Framingham and the Gregory Road and McAdams areas 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 an effort 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 de -icing materials during the winter months. In addition, an aggressive and comprehensive post - winter street and sidewalk 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 performs a comprehensive town wide street cleaning routine as well as overnight sweeping in 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. 103 Town of Framingham Pavement Management The 2011 road program addressed more than 18 lane miles of roadways in the Town. The construction projects included the replacement or upgrade of roadway elements and appurtenances so that both regulatory guidelines and directives continued to be 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. Through the integration and management of specialized contracted equipment with in house resources, the Division repaired over 3 miles of deficient roadways through a milling and paving method. The development of this program has led to greater cost control, quality control, and accountability while performing repair work on defective roadways. The strategy and design behind this program had drawn the attention of other large communities in the Commonwealth. In addition, the Division responded to emergency repairs, preventive maintenance, and filled over 10,000 potholes in 2011. The Division has replaced 2,640 linear feet of defective guardrails through this ongoing, state financed (Chapter 90), road program. Winter Storm Management The Highway Division is responsible for the provision of a safe automotive and pedestrian environment both during and after winter 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. Snow and ice operations are among the most important of responsibilities charged to the Department of Public Works. No activity performed by a Town entity encompasses more uncontrollable factors, nor has a greater impact on the community than does that of the proper handling of snow and ice events. 2011 Annual Report Those factors include weather, the amount of snowfall, rate of snowfall, duration of the storm, and type of precipitation. Not only do these factors have to be considered, their impact on resources and costs, including manpower, equipment, and materials must be understood and appropriately managed. 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 appropriate amount of resources to each storm event. In order to be fiscally responsible, the Department has developed a strategy to focus on main roads with greater speeds and higher traffic volumes, while utilizing a measured response on secondary roads, making them safe and passable. All town spreader trucks are equipped with a computerized distribution system that operates according to ground speed, thus ensuring the uniform distribution of de -icing materials. Tree Warden & Forestry Management The Highway Division is responsible for the maintenance management of the Town's estimated 12,000 public shade 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 Town of Framingham was named a Tree City USA again in 2011 by the Arbor Day Foundation. This designation provides a framework for public education, a positive public image and citizen pride. The Highway Division oversees the Town's vegetation management program that is permitted annually by the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources Pesticide Bureau. This program allows the 104 Town of Framingham 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 unwanted growth. A primary and recurring function of this operating group is the statutory requirement to maintain minimum clearance over the 550 lane -mile roadway network. In 2011, 58 miles of pruning were completed to provide clearance and safe travel lanes. 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. The tree crew performs an annual town -wide survey to identify hazardous trees and diseases and undertake corrective follow -up actions. These steps reduce potential tree related damage and emergency responses during weather events. In the event of severe weather, such as 2011's Tropical Storm Irene and the October 29 -30 snow storm, the Division is responsible for the cleanup and removal of storm debris. Those storms in particular destroyed hundreds of trees requiring removal. Thousands of others were injured or compromised that require present and future attention. The Division was responsible for two curbside brush collections provided for residents following these events. The Tree Warden conducts frequent hazardous tree assessments, prescribes treatment, oversees removals, and participates in public hearings on issues related to trees within the right of way. The Department routinely responds to residents' inquiries and requests for service, and Forestry Management personnel removed 161 dead, diseased, and /or hazardous street trees in 2011. Traffic Systems Management The Traffic Systems section of the Highway Division manages the maintenance, fabrication, and placement of the Town's 2011 Annual Report 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 motorists and work crews alike. The Traffic Systems section managed the annual contract and divisional painting of 81 miles of yellow centerline, 93 miles of white edge line, over 700 crosswalks, 771 stop bars, and 362 arrows throughout the Town. The Division installed and or replaced hundreds of regulatory signs and advisory signs either by direction of the Board of Selectmen, the Traffic and Roadway Safety Committee, 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. Waste Ave. The Division manages the collection of refuse and recycling from 19,508 dwelling units weekly, averaging more than 3,900 curbside collection stops and 90,000 pounds per day collected curbside. 105 Town of Framingham During 2011 the Town experienced two major weather events; Hurricane Irene and the October Nor'easter. Among other things, these storms resulted in major tree damage throughout the community. As a result, in conjunction with the Highway Division, two special town wide curbside brush and tree limb collections were performed. This allowed residents to remove tree waste storm debris from their yards. The two divisions collected, managed, and recycled close to 70,000 cubic yards of tree waste. By comparison, the division managed 1,700 cubic yards of similar material at the Dudley Road Yard Waste Facility during 2010 in its entirety. July 1, 2011 marked the transition of contractors providing our curbside recycling service. This also marked the change to an every other week recycling collection schedule. This change resulted in a $200,000.00 savings in the FY2011 budget. While the recycling is now collected on an alternating week schedule, the use of the recycling carts has continued to allow for increased recycling participation and trash reduction. On average, in 2011 the typical homeowner recycled fifty pounds more per year and disposed of 90 pounds less trash per year over 2010. This resulted in an additional trash disposal cost avoidance of $60,000. Since the initial cart distribution many home owners have requested to enlarge the capacity of their cart. To date, the division has satisfied close to 1,800 service requests from residents to exchange their cart to the larger, 96 gallon, size. The radio frequency cart identification system (RFID) is now fully functional. This allows the town to track what home carts are assigned to, how often and what time of day they are serviced. This has become a valuable tool for the town to maintain contractor accountability ensuring the proper delivery of service has been performed. 2011 Annual Report The division has continued to employ a multi facetted approach to decrease the Town's overall trash disposal costs. Some of these approaches included: 1. The attainment of waste reduction grants from the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDep). 2. In April 2011, the division sought and was awarded a $100,000 Municipal Grant from MassDep's Sustainable Materials Recovery Program (SMRP). This grant was specifically earmarked to reduce the town's cost for the purchase of the wheeled recycling carts. • 2011 is the second year of a MassDep Pilot program grant sought by the division for the elimination of Styrofoam lunch trays and food composting in the public schools. Currently, Barbieri Elementary has installed dishwashing machines and is utilizing reusable lunch trays. This change has allowed the division to cut trash disposal cost by 50 percent at that school. We are in the process of updating and installing efficient dishwashing machines at two other schools to continue the elimination of the Styrofoam trays in the district. 3. Starting in July 2011 the Resource Recovery Center began selling natural mulch and compost to homeowners and landscapers at a reduced rate. This helped reduce disposal cost, raise additional revenues for the town, and create a full circle recycling loop. The division has provided these materials for various town projects such as creating a garden at the high school, as a soil amendment in athletics fields, landscaping at the Village Hall and has been used at the Resource Recovery Center itself. These materials are provided at no cost to other town departments allowing them significant financial savings. 4. Public Education - 2011 continued our themed monthly events and programs. These events and services are offered to residents at no additional cost. These 106 Town of Framingham include Household Hazardous Waste Day, the Earth Day Celebration and the Town Wide Green -Up Day. Our most popular events continue to be the Shred Fest (secure confidential document shredding) and Electronics Day. Furthermore, the electronics 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. This has also helped the Town to properly recycle and dispose of thousands of pounds of discarded electronics. The Resource Recovery Center (RRC) located on Mount Waste Ave has continued the tradition of providing quality service to residents. In 2011 the division had robust sticker sales issuing 6,898 permits to residents providing access to the solid waste and recycling services offered at the facility. The center continues to provide excellent customer service at reduced costs to the residents as well as generate a significant revenue stream. The Town continues to partner with the Town of Wellesley, the Town of Needham and private entities 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 CY2011, $229,945.84 was generated for the General Fund. In 2011 the town continued 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 373.39 tons of recyclables. Curbside recyclables collected totaled 4,707.23 tons (358.83 tons higher than 2010). This represented an overall trash disposal cost avoidance of $462,336.42. WATER AND WASTEWATER MANAGEMENT PROGRAM 2011 Annual Report 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 (MW RA) 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. The Wastewater Department is responsible for the collection and transport of 5 -10 million gallons of sewage each day. A significant portion of wastewater flow during peak periods is infiltration and inflow J /I) from sources such as leaking pipes and sump pump discharges during wet weather. Sewage is conveyed from town systems to the MWRA 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 has experienced ever increasing incidents of failure. The system 107 Town of Framingham 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. It is anticipated that the key components of the ACO will be completed on schedule by the end of 2013. Failure to comply with the conditions of the ACO can result in administrative civil or criminal action. The Department also faces the continuing challenges of managing a second 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 2011 Annual Report 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 workforce at all levels and disciplines. This progression has provided an opportunity to identify and fully carry out capital projects of limited scope from design through construction using 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 2011 approximately 2,675 feet of water and /or sewer infrastructure was replaced using this approach in Freeman Street, Davis Street, Milton Street, Torrey Street, Broderick Drive, and Wood Avenue. The aforementioned construction activities were in addition to the excavations required by department staff to repair over 205 water system failures and 122 sewer system failures during the course of the year. Additionally the Water and Wastewater Division responded to over 1,900 first response calls and replaced 30 fire hydrants. The Wastewater division, performed video inspection of over 119,000 linear feet of sewer pipe whereby the condition of the sewer is documented using a camera unit which is remotely controlled and travels through the pipe. The inspection process reveals areas of the system that have actual or potential problems that may require repair or replacement. Twice each year the Water Department Collects drinking water samples from fifteen homes which are subsequently analyzed for their lead content. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has set the action level for lead in drinking water at 15 parts per billion (ppb), the level which triggers corrective actions to be undertaken by the water supplier. The results of our sampling program have successfully met that goal once again 1: Town of Framingham during 2011 as they have for the past several years. The Water Department also performs approximately 900 bacteriological tests annually to ensure the quality and protection of the Town's drinking water. The Town maintained continuous compliance throughout the year with the Environmental Protection Agency's standards related to bacteria testing (Total Coliform Rule). 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 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.

Land Acquisition and Stewardship Achievements: The Conservation Commission succeeded in supporting Land Acquisition and Protection as well as Open Space for 2011 by signing two Conservation Restrictions, working with other departments to successfully receive a grant application for the acquisition of Eastleigh Farms, and acquired approximately 12 acres of new open space by 618 Grove Street. In addition, the Framingham Conservation Commission's Stewards continuously maintained Conservation Lands by cutting vegetation that overgrew onto the trails, and cleaning debris. The Stewards also informed staff of any issues with Conservation Land. Due to the severe weather events experienced in 2011 the Commission coordinated with the Highway Department to alleviate trail hazards to keep lands open to the public 3. Educational Achievements: The Conservation Office held three events for education and outreach purposes. The Conservation Office supported Earth Day which was held by the Framingham Sierra 109 Town of Framingham Club. The Conservation Office had a table at the event explaining Conservation Commission jurisdiction, public land, and their roles in the Town. In addition, the Conservation staff ran a Geocaching /Letterboxing event which had over 40 participants on September 24, 2011. Informational clues geared toward conservation and sanitation themes were created for children participating in the event. The Conservation Office ran a stewardship - oriented event at Riverfest Qune 2011), where there was a canoe ride showing the resource area (Sudbury River), and a Nature Walk where Commissioner Pam Helinek walked through the trail and pointed out plant species and their properties (i.e. edible, medicinal purposes, etc). 4. Administrative Achievements: The Conservation Commission works closely with DPW, Park and Recreation Dept., Planning Board, Building Dept., and Community and Economic Development 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 Council, Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, Massachusetts Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, and the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, 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 also provides vehicle and equipment maintenance support to other agencies within the Town. This Program is accountable for; the development and implementation of professional fleet management standards and practices, the design and procurement of all public works 2011 Annual Report vehicles and equipment, and for providing standardized maintenance management practices for all public works facilities including water, wastewater and 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. The Fleet, Facilities, 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 we were able to upgrade the Town's emergency channel 3 with digital capabilities which will give the Town of Framingham's Emergency Management Agency full interoperability and provide a secure link between department heads and managers in the event of a public communication system breakdown. This was accomplished with grant money from the Framingham Police Department. The Town continues to be one of three major equipment and materials cache sites for the Northeast Homeland Security Regional Advisory Council (NERAC). In the fall of 2011 the cache site's equipment was utilized during the Tropical Storm state of emergency. Flood pumps were delivered to the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA), a light tower was delivered to the Town of Sherborn and a communications tower was delivered and set up for the Town of Stow. Also, one of the large standby generators was used at our pump stations due to various power outages throughout the Town. The Highway Division 110 Town of Framingham utilized one of NERAC's wood chippers to help with the Town -wide cleanup. Fleet Management In 2011 the Division researched, designed and prepared specifications for the procurement of the following specialized equipment: One brush chipper, two sidewalk tractors for snow removal, a large self - contained snowblower, two 40,000 GVW snow fighting trucks with sanders, front plows, center scrapers and wing plows. Also included were four heavy duty pickups with plows, two medium duty dump trucks with plows, six heavy duty utility body trucks with plows, a heavy duty rack body truck with a lift gate and plow, and a 72,000 GVW automated refuse packer with a plow. Technician training sessions continue both in- house and off site to help keep our technicians current with the ever changing industry. This has been the fifth winter season that we have setup a temporary site at the King School for technicians who are assigned to be on the north side of town during plowing events. This continues to work 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 2011, Fleet Services wrote 2,204 repair orders, performed 476 scheduled preventative maintenance services and completed 166 Commonwealth of Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles Enhanced Emissions State Inspections. The Division also managed the acquisition & distribution of more than 272,000 gallons of gasoline & diesel fuel. Facility Maintenance Again this year the Department of Environmental Protection's Stage II Vapor Recovery Certification program was 2011 Annual Report performed for the fuel system at Western Avenue along with the annual calibration of the fuel pumps which was performed by the Town's Sealer of Weights & Measurers. The oil /water separators at Western Avenue and the Mt. Wayte recycling facility continue to be inspected quarterly and pumped out in compliance with DEP regulations as needed but at least annually. We continue to perform full load tests on the emergency/ standby generators at both the Western Avenue and Henry Street facilities. This is done quarterly to ensure proper operation along with a semi- annual maintenance program. The annual fire sprinkler inspection was performed at the Western Avenue facility. During the winter the roof on the recycling storage building at the Mount Wayte facility was compromised due to the amount of snow that had fallen. This building was condemned and was removed. A new storage facility was constructed in its place and was ready for occupancy by December 1. The cost of this facility was covered by the Town's insurance. We have completed the replacement of the yard lighting at the Western Avenue facility. The lighting units were replaced with energy efficient LED pole lights. This replacement program was partially funded through an NSTAR grant. The Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Plans (SPCCP) are reviewed annually to insure accuracy. 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 111 Town of Framingham administrative and financial functions within the Department of Public Works. The 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 2011. Most 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. During 2011 this Division worked with the Treasurer's Office and an outside vendor to enhance the on line payment process for residents. This new option was made available to residents during 2011. In July 2010 a new software system was implemented for utility billing activities. 2011 Annual Report During 2011 Division staff completed the first full year cycle of billing processes. 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 number of estimated bills released by the department has declined significantly since the AMR system success rate consistently exceeds 99 %. 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. It is also a key tool in the evaluation of abatement requests. Three federal emergency declarations were issued during 2011: a January snow event, the August Tropical Storm Irene emergency and the October "Halloween Storm ". Reimbursement of $291k was received from Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) for the January event. The Department has submitted costs to FEMA for the August event totaling $102,288.07. Department staff continues to work with FERIA representatives on the Halloween storm. Members of the department oversee the Drain Layer License renewal process and 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.

Route 9 Route 9 MetroWest Smart Growth Plan- Sustainable Communities Consortium In 2011, the Planning Board wrote a letter of support for MetroWest Regional Collaborative (MAPC) for a Smart Growth Plan Grant; MAPC was awarded this grant and will start work on the Route 9 Plan in 2012. The scope of the plan includes a collaboration effort between Framingham, Natick, Southborough, and Wellesley on a Route 9. The Route 9 plan would further 2011 Annual Report develop the recommendations outlined in a recently completed Route 9 Corridor Analysis which determined that the development potential of the Route 9 corridor under current zoning could result in almost doubling the current floor area, severely exacerbating traffic congestion. The study suggested that future development on Route 9 should include more mixed pedestrian and bicycle friendly environment. The planning concept is to create denser Smart Growth Opportunity Areas that could also be better served by public transportation and generate fewer automobile trips than the current development pattern. 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 2011 over $2.4 million had been collected to date through these efforts. In calendar year 2011, the Board collected a total of $21,234.00 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.

Upon occupancy of these projects, 118 Town of Framingham the net increase in positive tax flow to the Town is estimated upwards of $7 million. 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. Through calendar year 2011 the Board received $104,000.00 in direct mitigation performance guarantees and Payments. 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 Community & Economic Devf Memorial Building, Rm B2 1 508-532-545 Community and Economic Development 2011 The Community and Economic Development Division (C &ED) undertakes a wide variety of projects, all of which are focused on protecting and enhancing the quality of life for Framingham's residents. The projects are multi- dimensional, ranging from securing grants and providing policy analyses to promoting homeownership and strengthening and expanding the tax base by encouraging appropriate new development. The Division consists of three departments: Planning, Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA), and Community Development (CD). While each department concentrates on different planning functions, there are strong 2011 Annual Report zoning amendments, which are current through Annual Town Meeting 2011, 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 conformance reviews during the permitting and construction phases for approved projects. Respectfully submitted, Andrea Carr - Evans, Chair interrelationships between and amongst the departments as well as other municipal divisions, boards and committees. PLANNING DEPARTMENT The Planning Department concentrates on promoting economic development and supporting our residential neighborhoods. Planners also manage a wide variety of projects and provide policy analyses for the Town Manager and Board of Selectmen. Economic Development The department is committed to encouraging appropriate economic development in order to support and expand the tax base, thereby contributing to the fiscal health of the town and minimizing the tax burden on property owners. Planners are responsible for 119 Town of Framingham Annual Report implementing the Town's Economic Development Strategic Plan, which is based on the recognition of the critical roles that the commercial sector plays in improving the quality of life for residents by contributing to the tax base, providing employment opportunities, and making available a diversity of goods and services. Consisting of four interconnected components, the Plan is directed at: identifying and planning for key sites and districts, facilitating Town investment to establish a framework for the private sector, creating a business friendly environment, and marketing the town's assets to attract new development and redevelopment. Downtown Revitalization The Planning Department coordinates ongoing and planned projects to revitalize Framingham's central business district. The department 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. Underlying the Town's approach to improving the economic viability of Downtown is the recognition that public infrastructure improvements 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 the Town Manager, Board of Selectmen and Planning Board staff, the Planning Department has helped guide the development of a long -term 2011 revitalization strategy for the downtown that addresses the rail crossing issue, seeks to incorporate Farm Pond into the downtown, promotes mixed -use 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. The Town has also developed plans to effect significant vehicular and pedestrian improvements to address traffic flow and improve safety in the more immediate future. These plans, combined with major streetscape improvements to beautify the downtown and help entice visitors to the district are nearing 25% completion at which time the State will conduct a public hearing to solicit input into the design plans. Framingham Downtown Renaissance C &ED staff works collaboratively with Framingham Downtown Renaissance (FDR), a non - profit organization focused on the revitalization of our downtown. With the support of the CD and Planning Departments, FDR made significant inroads this year in adapting the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Main Street Program to the downtown. This partnership has already generated tangible results including an FDR- sponsored survey of downtown businesses conducted by Framingham State University students. FDR also coordinated an exciting "winter wonderland" event in the downtown during the 2011 holiday season, which attracted new visitors and consumers. FDR posted a job description for a Main Street Project Manager who will be hired in the spring of 2012. The Project Manager will be charged with aggressively 120 Town of Framingham Annual Report furthering the goals of the Main Street Program in support of the combined efforts of FDR and C &ED to promote real change in Framingham's downtown. In addition to staff support, C &ED is contributing $30,000 in (federal) Community Development Block Grant funds to help finance the Project Manager's salary. Neighborhood Commercial Areas The Planning Department also focused efforts on the partially vacant Nobscot and Mt. Wayte shopping centers. The Board of Selectmen tasked the Economic Development Industrial Corporation (FDIC), staffed by the Planning Department, to generate a development plan for the Mt. Wayte shopping center. C &ED is working with the Nobscot neighborhood as well as the brokerage firm recently hired to market Nobscot in order to facilitate lease -up of the property. 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 refinancing, 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 that they are not contaminated. In prior years, the department secured two EPA grants to identify, abate and eventually redevelop brownfields. We submitted an additional grant application in 2011. We continued to administer the previously awarded grants, which involves targeting sites, interfacing property owners, and working with a licensed site 2011 professional (LSP) hired by the department to conduct environmental site assessments (ESAs) of selected properties. The LSP has undertaken nine ESAs including two for the site on which a new branch library is planned. One noteworthy project entailed use of use of Brownfields funds to assess a Parks and Recreation Department parcel on Pratt Street. The results allowed the Town, with the support of the Agricultural Advisory Committee, to establish a community garden in the summer of 2011. 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, the Planning Department works with prospective developers and the State to encourage and facilitate appropriate development. The C &ED Director participates in a quarterly meeting with Tech Park property owners and tenants together with other Town officials to identify issues of mutual concern and how we can strengthen our partnership to address these issues and maximize the economic potential of the area. 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 creating a favorable development environment and encouraging redevelopment of vacant and underutilized property in the downtown and community -wide. 121 Town of Framingham Annual Report Residential Neighborhoods While economic development initiatives support residential neighborhoods by generating additional taxes, the Planning Department 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. Neighborhood Stabilization Program The dramatic increase in home foreclosures that began in 2008 persisted in 2011. The Planning Department continued to implement the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP), funded by three grants secured and administered by C &ED totaling $1.35 million. The mission of NSP is to acquire and convert foreclosed properties into owner - occupied homes to reduce the potential for blight and help stabilize neighborhoods. The success of NSP represents the combined efforts of the Planning Department, CD Department and the Board of Selectmen as well as the Framingham Housing Authority (FHA) and its subsidiary, the Framingham Housing Development Corporation. Thus far, the Program has resulted in the purchase of five homes, all of which have been completely renovated and three of which were sold to income - eligible applicants in 2011. One two- family property was retained by FHA and the fifth property is currently for sale. Closing on a sixth property is scheduled for the spring of 2012. Net sale proceeds are 2011 reinvested in the purchase and renovation of additional properties. These renovated properties have dramatically improved the appearance of the neighborhoods in which they are situated and returned abandoned properties to active uses that contribute positively to the neighborhoods in which they are situated. For more information, please go to www.framinghamma.groy /foreclosures Promotion 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. Planners have developed a marketing campaign, a major component of which is a web site created and maintained in conjunction with Technology Services. The two divisions will continue to refine the web site, which can be accessed by clicking on www.chooseframinQham.com State and Federal Grants The Planning Department constantly identifies and analyzes the applicability of grants as well as researches the availability of funding for specific projects. The department applied for $1.2 million in grants during 2011. We successfully received the following: $ 20,000 State Attorney General housing rehabilitation grant $500,000 State Local Acquisitions for Natural Diversity (LAND) grant to help purchase a Conservation Restriction on Eastleigh Farm 122 Town of Framingham Annual Report The following applications were unsuccessful: $250,000 HUD Community Challenge Grant application for downtown revitalization $400,000 Brownfields Environmental Site Assessment Grant from EPA to fund ongoing and proposed brownfields activities including redevelopment and area -wide planning The following grant application is pending, with notification anticipated in the spring of 2012: $400,000 Brownfields Environmental Site Assessment Grant from EPA to fund ongoing and proposed brownfield activities including redevelopment planning The extraordinary assistance and cooperation provided by the school and other municipal departments have been instrumental in the department's success in securing grants. Similarly, the Planning Department is available to provide staff support to other divisions in identifying and preparing grant applications. Policy Analyses, Studies, Project Management, and Special Projects C &ED undertakes projects, prepares policy analyses, and coordinates inter- departmental projects. Some of these 2011 projects include the following: Wireless Communication Facilities (WCF) Working Group The working group retained a consultant in 2011 to review our WCF bylaw and identify how the needs of the wireless industry can be accommodated consistent 2011 with federal law with the least impact to our neighborhoods. The consultant's report will be issued in February 2012. Open Space Plan Implementation Committee (OSPIC) Planners staff the OSPIC, which is charged with implementing the 2008 Open Space and Recreation Plan. The committee's first task was to update the 2008 action plan. The committee also studied the town's three aqueducts— Weston, Hultman, and Sudbury —and assessed how best to provide public access for recreational use. Transportation C &ED works closely with DPW to insure that Framingham's transportation improvement priorities are identified on the state's Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP), which is a prerequisite for federal and state funding. Cochituate Rail Trail (CRT The Planning Department is working closely with DPW to coordinate design and construction activities along the rail trail. Design plans for the trail were submitted to MassDOT in 2011 and its design review process is underway. The department secured a $600,000 MassDOT transportation grant in 2010 to help complete the trail. The basic infrastructure of the trail is under construction as part of DPW's East Framingham Sewer Improvement Project. It is anticipated that the CRT will be completed in 2013. C &ED also retained a consultant to develop the 25% design for the 500 Old Connecticut Path /CRT intersection. A decision on whether to proceed with this design will be made in 2012. 123 Town of Framingham Annual Report Bruce Freeman Rail Trail (BFRT� The Planning Department manages the planning process to develop the Framingham component of the proposed 35 -mile rail trail that will extend from Lowell to Framingham. The department has been seeking grant funding and working with the regional committee representing all of the communities through which the trail will traverse. Aqueducts Planners are actively engaged in improving public access to the Weston Aqueduct. A series of meetings took place in 2011 with Town, regional and State officials. It is anticipated that a pilot project for a segment of the Weston Aqueduct in Saxonville will be initiated in 2012. Subsidized Housing Inventory (SHI) The Planning Department carefully monitors the Town's status on the Commonwealth's Subsidized Housing Inventory 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). Provide Support to Town Committees C &ED provides staff support to several Town committees, including: Economic Development Industrial Corporation (EDI L� The EDIC is charged with creating a pro - active capacity to plan for and carry out economic development activities. Multiple Hazard Mitigation Planning Group. The C &ED Director serves on 2011 the committee, 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 updated the Plan, which was officially adopted by the Board of Selectmen in 2011. ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS Memorial Building, Room B2 (508)532 5456 zba@ frarninghamma.gov The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) is the Permit Granting Authority and the Special Permit Granting Authority for projects that do not meet the requirements of the Town's 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. The ZBA also 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 2011, 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, also serves as the ZBA Administrator. Mr. Kennedy prepared the Board's decisions and advised the Board on procedural and other issues. Alice Clapper continued her duties as Administrative Assistant. Town Counsel advised the 124 Town of Framingham Annual Report Board as required. John Szczesny was hired in October 2011 as a Planner and provides support to the ZBA Administrator and Board. The Board of Selectmen approved the following increased fees to the ZBA Filing Fee Schedule effective May 24, 2011: Application Fee Finding/Appeal $ 300 Special Permit /Variance Residential $ 300 Commercial $ 500 Industrial $ 1 Wireless Communications Facility $ 2,500 Sign Appeal $ 250 Total filing fees in 2011 amounted to $40,700. The new filing fee schedule generated a total of $35,850 of revenue from May 24, 2011 through December 9, 2011. Under the old filing fee schedule, revenue would have been $13,950 for a difference of $21,900. ZBA filing fees had not been increased by the Board of Selectmen since April 2002. Fifty -nine petitions were filed with the ZBA office in 2011. Twelve petitions that were filed in 2010 were decided in 2011. These 71 cases represent 16% more than the 61 cases processed in 2010. Of the 71 cases heard in 2011, 17 were requests for variances, 34 for special permits, 8 for findings, 9 for variance and 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 2011 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. Three Associate Members presided over sign appeal applications, with the fourth Member selected as the Alternate. Six sign applications were filed in 2011. 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. COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND HOME PROGRAMS Since 1975, Framingham has received over 20 million dollars in Federal Community Development Block Grant Program (CDBG) funds. The Town also receives federal Home Investment Partnership Act (HOME) funds, which must be used exclusively for 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 may participate in or benefit from program activities. 125 Town of Framingham Annual Report The following summarizes several major accomplishments during 2011: Housing Rehabilitation Assistance The program provides technical assistance and CDBG /HOME loans for the rehabilitation of substandard homes. Three dwellings were repaired with loans and related assistance services through the provision of grants and loans to income - eligible property owners (those with low or moderate incomes or a majority of tenants with low or moderate incomes) in 2011. An additional six properties are in the process of receiving housing rehabilitation loans. Administrative support is provided to implement the Neighborhood Stabilization Program, which acquires, rehabilitates and sells foreclosed property. Homebuyer Assistance The Town's Downpayment Assistance Program provided homeownership opportunities to two income - eligible households with CDBG /HOME funds in 2011, in conjunction with the Division's Neighborhood Stabilization Program. Code Enforcement CDBG provides funding to conduct code - related inspections of properties located in eleven Census Block Groups, each with a population that has predominantly 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 Spanish and Portuguese. The Building Department maintains a data base on inspectional findings and maps where problems are occurring. During the past program year, over 400 inspectional cases were initiated and closed. 2011 Public Facilities Improvements: Accessibility Adaptations CDBG grants continued to fund several handicapped accessibility improvements to Memorial Building, including athe installation of a new, mobile ADA stage lift in Nevins Hall. The program also funded: reconstruction of Arsenal Street; and construction of accessible sidewalks, pathways and pedestrian crossings at the Juniper Hill School. CDBG funds were also used to upgrade public parks and recreational facilities including the installation of new lighting and landscaping 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 fagade, signage, and storefront improvements. One local business was offered funds to renovate the fagade of a historic structure; these improvements are anticipated to be constructed in 2012. 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 facing issues that have impeded their ability to learn and achieve (Resiliency for Life). Adult programs included: literacy training (Literacy Unlimited); English -as -a- Second Language (Framingham Adult ESL Plus); limited financial assistance to prevent homelessness (Homeless Prevention Program) and referrals to health insurance coverage and social services (MAPS Inc). Over 430 individuals were served by the activities. 126 Town of Framingham Annual Report Subsidized Housing Support CDBG and HOME funds supported subsidized housing projects including: Rose Kennedy Lane (ADA access improvements to two units) and the Housing Authority's Memorial House congregate dwelling facility (five units). Administration Administration of both the CDBG and HOME Programs is staff intensive and 71 This year has been transformative in many ways for both MAPC and the region. With an infusion of federal dollars through HUD's Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant, MAPC has been honored and challenged with a great responsibility this year: to support and showcase the best smart growth projects and policies across Greater Boston, and to serve those up as models for others across the country. Notable projects that have been funded by the Sustainable Communities are: • The Regional Housing Plan and Fair Housing Equity Assessment will outline the region's housing needs, link fair housing with a broader set of regional issues, and recommend housing development and policy goals. • The Framingham Tech Park Transportation Management Plan will recommend investments in transit, infrastructure, and incentives to facilitate economic development in an old industrial park along Route 9. Goals include improved access to employment and a reduction of vehicle miles traveled in the region. 2011 requires diligence to identify and comply with applicable federal regulations. CDBG and HOME funding reimburse the Town for the salaries of benefits of staff assigned to manage the programs. Respectfully Submitted, Alison C. Steinfeld, Director Division of Community & Economic Development We are proud to report that 2011 was another successful year for our work under the District Local Technical Assistance (DLTA) program, which is an essential vehicle for helping communities achieve more sustainable land use and more effective local governance. DLTA funding is provided by the Legislature and Governor to help cities and towns to collaborate regionally on housing, economic development, and environmental protection projects. The funding can also be used to help municipalities to coordinate and more efficiently deliver local services. This year, MAPC funded 19 projects, 8 in land use planning and 11 in municipal services. MAPC Staff also worked with the 495 /MetroWest Development Compact to help identify priority development and preservation areas and significant transportation and infrastructure investments for that region. We worked with our neighbors to the west, the Central Massachusetts Regional Planning Commission, and other allied organizations, to hold community meetings in almost 40 cities and towns, 127 Town of Framingham Annual Report yielding both local and regional priorities for both residential and economic growth, as well as priority land for preservation and protection. MAPC is working to make sure commercial and residential growth respects open space resources, transportation networks, and water resources in the region. In 2011 we added two new divisions to MAPC: energy and public health. We now have several staff devoted exclusively to providing technical assistance and policy guidance to bolster energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), to help in the regional development of renewable energy resources, and to procure energy products and service for groups of municipalities. We hope this work will advance markets for clean technology while reducing GHG and dependence on fossil fuels. For example, we brought together 14 communities to hire and Energy Services Company (ESCO) and we created a new Local Energy Action Program to help communities plan and implement local clean energy projects. We especially want to thank the Barr Foundation for their support of MAPC's energy work. MAPC continued a robust legislative agenda in 2011, focusing on topics such as transportation funding, zoning reform, and pursuing a more sound financial footing for the Community Preservation Metrowest Regional Transk 160 Waverley Street, Framingham, MF 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 2011 Act. With many allies, we achieved a major success when Governor Patrick signed into law legislation reforming health insurance for municipal employees on July 12, 2011. This law will help dozens of municipalities to negotiate savings on health care costs for their employees and retirees. This law strikes a balance that gives municipalities a chance to manage their way through the fiscal crisis while preventing layoffs and ensuring high - quality health insurance for all municipal employees and retirees. Finally, as the discussion and debate around the MBTA's struggling financial picture takes shape, we are poised to influence policy decisions and advocate for key revenue changes as part of our new Transportation Campaign. We've hosted forums on transit funding throughout the year and are planning more as pending fare hikes approach for transit riders. If you are interested in joining us, visit our website to get started. As we move forward into a new year, we know that MAPC will continue to be involved in creating a healthy, strong, more vibrant region consistent with our MetroFuture goals. Visit www.mapc.or throughout the year for news and updates about our work. Respectfully Submitted, Bruce Leish, Director 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 1", 2007 with a new contracted provider 128 Town of Framingham Annual Report 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 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. In 2011, Wellesley joined the Authority as its 12` member. Additionally the MWRTA began collaboration with Framingham State University, supporting a student operated system with capital and Formed in 1946, the Framingham Housing Authority is led by a dedicated five - member Board of Commissioners. Together, with Executive Director Kevin Bumpus and a supportive staff of 42, the FHA maintains over 1000 units of public housing and administers rent subsidies for 2011 training that is fully funded by the University. 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 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. For further details and for real time transit options and customer service, please visit our website: www.mwrta.com Respectfully Submitted, Ed Carr, MWRTA Administrator over 900 units of private housing, in cooperation with federal, state and local authorities.

There is a new Musterfield Activity Center with an After School Program for children 2011 ages 5 -12. The curriculum is Sports and Recreation in our state of the art playground, Homework Assistance and Arts and Crafts. We have a partnership with Framingham State University to provide interns. We also have collaborated with Early Childhood Alliance for a Pre- school Music, Movement and Story Hour. Federally Funded Housing Federally aided family housing administered by the FHA includes 125 units (under MA028 -001 Family Housing) at Beaver Street, Carlson Road and Pusan Road. Senior units (under MA0028 -002 Elderly Housing) include 110 apartments on John J. Brady Drive. The FHA also administers 983 federal Section 8 Rental Assistance vouchers for apartments in privately owned properties located throughout Framingham and surrounding towns. Family Unification Program This is a program under which Section 8 vouchers are provided to families for whom the lack of adequate housing is the primary factor in the imminent placement of the family's child or children. FUP vouchers may also be used for youths at least 18 years of age and not more than 21 who left foster care at age 16 and who lack adequate housing. The FHA administers this program in partnership with the Dept. of Children and Families, who are responsible for referring families and youths to the FHA for determination of eligibility for rental assistance. Family Self- Sufficiency Program The FHA has two FSS programs, one for Public Housing and one for Section 8 participants. This is a five year voluntary program where an individual service plan is designed with goals in education, career planning and financial literacy are worked 130 Town of Framingham Annual Report on. The past two years FHA has collaborated with the Town of Framingham in addressing neighborhood stabilization by renovating and remodeling foreclosed properties in designated census tracts. This has been very successful and two of the Section 8 participants in the FSS program have purchased homes in Framingham. Two single family homes, one two family and one condominium have been sold with another single family home on the market presently. 2011 Respectfully submitted, Kevin P.

Treasurer Robert Merusi, Member 131 Town of Framingham PARKS & RECREATION CC CEMETERY Parks, Recreation, & Cultura 475 Union Avenue 508- 532 -5960 1 ps Parks and Recreation Commission Barry Bograd served as chairman with other members Robert Brown, Dan Jones, Joan Rastani and Kevin Salvi. The Annual Town Meeting voted for an annual FY12 operating budget of $2,340,965 for Parks Administration, Maintenance and Recreation. This amount allowed us to resume the maintenance of the school athletic fields which had been significantly curtailed from previous budget reductions. The Capital Budget Committee approved a new F250 4x4 Pickup Truck to be used for the daily maintenance of park projects including the replacement of the docks for Learneds Pond to be installed in 2012 and new Tennis Lighting at Butterworth Park. The lighting project was accomplished with significant savings from the appropriated amount thanks to the Keefe Technical School Electrical Lab students completing the infrastructure for the project. Currently, specs are being developed for Furber Playground improvements and for computerized irrigation throughout the parks. Both projects will be implemented in the spring of 2012. Other tasks approved by the Board included the opening of a new handicapped accessible playground at Farm Pond; the completion of Phase 4 at Cushing Park, and new signage at various parks. We entered into a formal written agreement with the School Department to assist with school bus storage needs at our Long's Athletic Complex. The Park & Recreation department managed the Summer Concerts on the Green for the first time in 2011. Attendance continues to be 2011 Annual Report RECREATION DEPARTMENT IL ON AGING strong and some concerns regarding the location of the stage will be reviewed and addressed for the 2012 season. The Department Mission Statement was reviewed by the Board and modified to read "To create recreational opportunities, preserve open space, manage public athletic fields and parks, and administer recreation programs for the population of Framingham." The Parks and Recreation Department received the 2011 Massachusetts Architectural Access Board and Boston Society of Architects Design Award at the State House for incorporating handicapped accessibility into the design of the new Bowditch Field Athletic and Cultural Complex. In addition to the 345 events scheduled at the Bowditch complex, stadium events included the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, Marian High School's League Track Meet, and the United Soccer Memorial Day Tournament as well as a host of high school and college athletic events. The Department is still holding payments on the General Contractor until corrective masonry work is completed. Beautification Projects were implemented throughout the Town with the use of volunteers. The most noticeable areas include Route 30/126 Island, Jonathan Maynard Building, Sax Dam, Old Burying Grounds and Nobscot Park. The Agricultural Committee was issued a permit to establish a Community Garden at the Pratt Street property. A new parking area and water lines were installed with hopes to implement a green space for the development of a neighborhood garden. It is hoped the Reereation & Cultural Affairs 132 Town of Framingham Agricultural Committee will continue to utilize this improved area for community gardening opportunities. The Department continues to be an economic driver for our community. Our excellent recreational facilities attract thousands of people to sports activities and tournaments. They in turn spend money in our stores, hotels, gas stations, and shopping malls. Research continues to demonstrate clean parks and well maintained athletic fields improve property values and attract new industry to our tax base. 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 and volunteers for their continued support. Barry Bograd Chair, Park and Recreation Commission Robert L. Merusi, Executive Director, Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs Recreation During the past year, The Recreation Department offered 273 different programs with a total of 16,302 participants. Summer use of the beaches at Saxonville, Learneds and Waushakum increased 2% from the previous summer for a total of 15,800 visitors. New programs offered this year included Zumba, Special Needs Swimming, Art, and Dance, Go for your Goals for Girls, Walk with the Parks and Adult Aikido. This was the first year the department managed the ever popular "Friday Night Concerts on the Green." An eight week schedule of local talent included the sounds of the `Infractions,' `Common Ground,' `The Three Swinging Tenors,' `XRB,' `Off the Hook' & `Three of a Kind.' The weather prevented the `Heritage Pops Orchestra' and the `Reminisants' from performing. The season was a success with some concerns 2011 Annual Report expressed about the stage placement due to the glare from the setting sun. These concerns will be addressed for the 2012 season. Assisted by the Friends of Framingham Recreation, the department sponsored the following special events this year: Pumpkins in the Park, Green Up Day and the Egg - citing Egg Hunt. These events continue to grow in popularity and size. Additionally, with thanks to Framingham Co- operative Bank for the funding, walkers at Cushing Park were surprised to be offered hotdogs and hot chocolate as they visited the Park on several occasions over the course of the year. In conjunction with the Framingham Police Department, Framingham Fire Department and Selectmen, the Parks & Recreation Department hosted a special remembrance ceremony and vigil on September 11, 2011 for the 10th anniversary of the attack of the United States. In addition to honoring the 17 individuals that had ties to Framingham, the event included the placement of nearly 3,000 American Flags to represent each person who lost their life on that tragic day. The ceremony was held at the `September 11th Living Memorial' located in Cushing Memorial Park. Our Department has joined other members from the community on the Framingham Youth Development Collaborative, an initiative implemented by District Attorney Gerard Leone. This group meets every other month and is working toward developing programs and job opportunities for the youth of Framingham. The Department experienced some transition this year with the retirement of PAL Basketball League Coach Tom Click as well as several longtime instructors and coaches who were replaced in our Summer Swim Team, Crafts, Keyboard and Playgroup classes. The PAL basketball league is now led by the new Director Alan Williams and once again challenged the New England Patriots Jerod Reereation & Cultural Affairs 133 Town of Framingham Mayo, Sebastian Vollmer, Mike Wright and Brian Hoyer in an exciting game of Basketball with the win going to the Patriots in overtime. We are thankful for the many successful grants that enhanced our 2011 programs. The Department of Public Health and the State of Massachusetts provided funding for continued Youth at Risk programming. Future Skills funded two summer counselors for our Recreation Centers while Project Bread and the United States Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrition Service provided free breakfast and lunch for the Recreation Special Needs Program. We would also like to thank the Sudbury River Tennis Club for their generous donation which was used to help defray the cost of the summer tennis lessons. Additionally, Friends of Framingham Recreation was able to grant numerous scholarships for Recreation Programs to families in need. We would like to thank the Town Selectmen, Town Meeting Members, Town Staff and numerous community volunteers for their support and dedication. Without their continued support, we would not be successful in offering quality programs to the residents of Framingham. We welcome input from Town residents and we value both your feedback and involvement in our programs. Respectfully Submitted, Trisha Powell Superintendent of Recreation Robert L Merusi Robert L. Merusi, Executive Director, Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs. Parks Maintenance The Parks Maintenance Division continues to provide some of the best maintained facilities in the Metro West area. We have implemented a quality maintenance program to maintain the condition of our high use turf areas with a balanced turf management plan of aeration, 2011 Annual Report top dressing, fertilization, seeding, mowing and proper irrigation. With the increased demand for additional practice and game fields, over use of facilities and the decline in turf quality is a major problem that we face. There continues to be an increase in participation in some of the seasonal sports. Long range planning for alternative field space still needs to be a priority, yet this will be a challenge due to the funding increases required. The second phase of field renovations at Fuller Field was completed in 2011. Our Maintenance Department continues to support the athletic programs of three high schools, Framingham High, Marian High and Joseph P. Keefe Technical High School. Others 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. In addition, our staff took responsibility for the Concerts on the Common series this past summer with great success. Our working relationship with Keefe Technical School enabled our department to complete some major projects. In the Fall, Keefe's electrical lab provided labor to finish the second phase of the Butterworth Tennis Light Project. This was a CDBG project that had been divided into two projects; one for infrastructure and a second phase to relight the tennis courts. This mutually beneficial relationship with Keefe Tech provides the Town of Framingham with access to cost effective and professionally supervised electrical, carpentry, plumbing and metal fabrication, while affording students the benefit of practical "real world" learning experiences in a commercial setting. Infield renovations to Longs and Bowditch baseball fields were completed in the Fall. The Reereation & Cultural Affairs 134 Town of Framingham renovations enabled us to improve /repair the poor drainage and uneven play areas from these two highly used sites. We are also renovating many of our playground area fall zones and replacing old wood chips with safety zone wood fiber mulch. We have begun installing signage to some of our parks and will continue to make our areas identifiable. Through our Capital Budget program, we were able to purchase a new vehicle for our fleet; purchase beach docks for Learneds Beach and make some handicap accessible improvements at the Furber Park playground. After a delay due to a contractor's problem, we were able to bring another handicap accessible playground on line at Farm Pond. The department also collaborated with Sudbury Valley and the Framingham Agricultural Committee to start a community garden program at the Pratt Street property. The area was used by local residents allowing an opportunity for them to cultivate their own produce. This year's Arbor Day of Service project in Framingham was collaboration with our staff, Keefe Tech and the Public Works Department and was in memory of Jason Pierangeli, a Keefe Tech teacher who passed away earlier in the year. The groups worked together to enhance the grounds of the school and a tree was planted in Jason's memory as well. Our active tree maintenance program continues by concentrating on the removal of hazardous trees and the pruning of trees for safety and structural reasons. The hurricane and early snow of October brought a lot of damage to trees in many areas. Our department spent 811 man hours to clean up the storm damage to parks and school areas within our purview. The town wide beautification program continues to be a successful collaboration with our department, volunteer groups and court system labor. We 2011 Annual Report continue to benefit from the donation of labor and services provided by private companies to improve high visibility roadside areas and offer them the opportunity to promote their donations at the same time. I would like to thank all the volunteers and volunteer groups that worked with us on many projects over the year. Their support is and always will be a tremendous resource. We continue to give support and resources to other Town Departments including the School Department, Building Services, Public Works and Conservation. We would also 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 these successes without their help.

Appointed by the Town Manager, the members who continue to serve on the committee are co- chairs Joe Tersoni and David Friday, and John Hart, Jack Jagher, Bob Brown, Richard Callahan and Joan Rastani. During the spring of 2011, a new valve was installed on the 49 year old ammonia system. This new valve was essential to isolate ammonia in the event of a leak. During the installation, the bulls -eye column on the main receiver was also replaced as it monitors the liquid level of ammonia. In the summer of 2011, the arena added a new exterior LED sign. The sign was custom made to fit the existing frame and the cost was significantly lower than if the sign had been replaced. The new sign provides increased exposure for all arena events. New light sensors were installed in all bathrooms and locker rooms to decrease the use of electricity. A new electric motor was installed on the evaporator condenser as well. 2011 Annual Report During the fall of 2011, the arena staff added two mesh Parks & Recreation logos in the ice surface. In addition, a new electric hydraulic motor was installed on the Zamboni. The Stanley Cup made a special appearance at Loring Arena on October 15, 2011. This was made possible by a board member of the Framingham Youth Hockey Program along with Loring Arena. Approximately 600 people were able to view and be photographed with the Stanley Cup over a two hour period while Loring Arena personnel provided security for this special event. Loring Arena continues to host events and provide services to all and continues to be a source of pride to the community.

Interest in the Callahan Center Travel program has grown with 130 new clients in 2011 and a total of 40 trips were enjoyed by more than 1,000 seniors. The SHINE program provided more than 1,200 sessions of assistance regarding health insurance information for seniors. Loans of durable medical equipment were made free of charge to almost 300 seniors. In September, the Callahan Center became the ninth senior center in Massachusetts to be awarded accreditation by the National Councils on Aging /National Institute for Senior Centers. Only 199 other senior centers across the country have achieved this recognition of meeting nine standards of excellence established by the national groups. 2011 Annual Report Once again in December, seniors at the Callahan Center partnered with students and teachers from the Miriam McCarthy School in raising funds to donate to the Kate McSweeney Homeless Fund. Seventy seniors who are 90 years of age and older were feted at the annual Jewels of Framingham event in May with students from Keefe Technical School offering their talents to accentuate the beauty of this fabulous group of seniors. New and improved services and programs: In the Spring, the Friends of Callahan began offering a luncheon for seniors once a month, catered by Mark Curtis of American Eagles Grille. It was so successful that by the end of the year they agreed to offer the luncheon twice per month. The fee is $4 per person it is a great deal. For those who prefer solitary activities, WiFi access was made available in the Friends' cafe that also offers a new puzzle table that was donated. The number of support groups offered at the Center has grown from nine to eleven with the addition of Living with Cancer and Men's Prostate groups. More than 150 seniors benefit from all these monthly support groups. The Callahan Center now offers assistance with the new applications for the fuel assistance program to those seniors who qualify. In addition, we worked with 39 eligible seniors to receive a credit of up to $725 on their property tax bills. In return, they volunteered approximately 89 hours of assistance to town departments in a variety of ways in the "Senior Tax Work Off Program." The Bi- Lingual Outreach Aide collaborated with the Latino Health Insurance Program to provide additional assistance to the Latino community. We continue to encourage Latino elders to participate in activities at the Callahan. ESOL classes for the Asian Reereation & Cultural Affairs 137 Town of Framingham community of elders are also held twice a week. A group of 75 volunteers were recruited from local businesses, religious groups, parents, teachers and students of several area schools to provide 225 hours of yard work /cleanup for 14 senior households. New events and happenings in 2011! An effort was made to appeal to younger seniors from the Baby Boomer generation by offering "Evenings at Callahan" once a month where the center remained open until 9 p.m. with a series of programs geared to their interests. Due to a lack of interest from this age group, the evening program was canceled after a few months. We will continue to seek 2011 Annual Report other opportunities to connect with younger seniors in the future. On December 16, 2011, after a lengthy search, Grace O'Donnell of West Roxbury was offered the position of Director of Elder Services. Grace will replace Mary Parcher who served as the Director for many years. The community wishes much happiness to Mary in her retirement and thanks her for all her years of service. Grace O'Donnell will begin as the new director in January 2012. Tom Pedulla, Chairperson Council on Aging Board Grace T. O'Donnell, Director of Elder Services (2012) Robert L. Merusi Executive Director, Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs Reereation & Cultural Affairs 138 Town of Framingham 2011 Annual Report FRAMINGHAM PUBLIC SCHOOLS I JOS NAL TECHNICAL VOCATIONAL SCHOOL FRAM BRARY FY12 Budget As the year began, the School Committee spent several months in budget deliberations with the Chief Financial Officer, the Finance Committee, Ways and Means Committee and Standing Committee on Education. In April 2011, the School Committee voted a FY12 level - service budget of $92,281,151. Superintendent Steve Hiersche presented a series of budget reductions, which though not recommended, would enable the School Committee to close the budget gap to the CFO's initial budget recommendation of $90,637,218. In early May, the CFO provided a new FY12 budget recommendation of $91,177,164. In mid -May, the School Administration identified a budget projection error which reduced the gap to the CFO's budget recommendation. The School Committee voted unanimously an FY12 Budget request to Town Meeting of $91,620,343, resulting in a $443,179 budget deficit to the CFO's recommendation. In late May, the School Committee successfully negotiated a one -year contract with the Framingham Teachers Association. The FTA accepted a zero percent cost -of- living adjustment and agreed to defer movement on the steps until mid -year, as well as other contract changes that helped ease the School Department's budget issues. On May 26, 2011, Town Meeting passed a School Department appropriation of $91,320, 323, representing an approximately 3% increase from last year. kindergarten aides; second school secretaries and two full time library assistants. At a Special Fall Town Meeting, the CFO's recommendation to transfer $207K to the School Committee's FY12 budget passed. Since one -fifth of the school year had already passed, these funds would cover the rebuilding priorities. Bus Privatization In April 2011, the School Committee considered the privatization of its bus fleet and drivers as a means to reduce costs to the Town. While considering the value of a successful, effective and efficient school bus transportation system and the loyalty of Framingham's bus drivers to the Town of Framingham over the past 70 years, the School Committee had to consider significant savings to the Town, primarily in employee health care costs, which could be realized if the School Committee decided to privatize. On April 25, 2011, the School Committee voted to accept the low bid for buses and drivers by Durham School Services for the five -year period beginning in the summer 2011 through the summer of 2016. Edueation & Libraries 139 Town of Framingham Superintendent Search In August, Superintendent Hiersche publicly announced that he would be leaving Framingham for professional and personal reasons at the end of his three -year contract on June 30, 2012. Chair Beverly Hugo expressed gratitude to Dr. Hiersche for his service and his intention to help the School Committee ensure a smooth transition for his successor. In October, the School Committee hired Future Management Systems, Inc., of Beverly, MA as its superintendent search consultant. In November, the School Committee appointed a 15- member Superintendent Search Screening Committee including Paula DelPrete (Principal, Potter Road Elementary School), Kim Taylor (Principal, Dunning Elementary School), Judy Friedland (SAGE Teacher at Woodrow Wilson /Barbieri, former member of Ashland School Committee and the FTA appointee to the Screening Committee), Sam Miskin (FTA President and FHS Math teacher), Judith Styer (Director of School Health Services and Framingham Health Advisory Council Chair), Melanie Goddard (Chair, Standing Committee on Education, Town Meeting member and Fuller Middle School Technology Specialist), Michael Phipps (Partners in Education, Genzyme, Walsh parent and the Board of Selectmen's appointee to the Screening Committee), Susan Arndt (Co- President, Framingham Special Education Advisory Council and parent), Dr. Scott Greenberg (Framingham State University Dean of Graduate and Continuing Education and Assistant Vice President of Academic Affairs and a Fuller /FHS parent), Ernest Herrman (President of TJX Corporation and a Brophy /Walsh /FHS parent) and Viviana Vilches (Co- president Bilingual Parent Advisory Council and a Barbieri /FHS parent), Susanne Olson (Townwide PTO appointee to the Screening Committee and parent), Ken Ferguson (Deputy Police Chief, Framingham Police Department and member of Board of Directors of multiple youth initiative and 2011 Annual Report community organizations) and School Committee members Beverly Hugo and David Miles. Policy In 2010, the School Committee began a cover -to -cover review of the Framingham Public Schools Policy Manual in conjunction with the Massachusetts Association of School Committee and district principals, administrators and staff. The district's manual contains approximately 200 policies, some originally written prior to 1970. The review continued throughout 2011. The School Committee hopes to complete this work in the spring 2012 and post the FPS Policy Manual online by the end of the 2011/2012 school year. Curriculum & Instruction The Committee requested the administration's review of its many major programs throughout the year. Specifically, directors and principals presented analysis and recommendations for the following: Special Education, Bilingual, Gifted and Talented, middle school math, potential changes to middle school STEM initiatives, the Blocks Preschool, district scores on national and state tests, including APs, SATs and MCAS, evaluation of implementation of the International Baccalaureate program in Wilson, and the potential of establishment of the Barbieri Two -Way school as a Horace Mann Charter, as encouraged by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. In addition, the committee partnered with the administration and the Framingham Teachers' Association in addressing the federal Race to the Top initiative regarding modifications to Teacher Evaluations in order to qualify for $700,000 in funding for Framingham over the next three years. Facilities Upon the approval of Town Meeting of the School Department's capital budget requests, Edueation & Libraries 140 Town of Framingham the district was able to implement much of the next phase of its 10 year facilities plan. The B &G work necessary to relocate the Blocks Preschool program from the King building to Juniper Hill was completed over the summer of 2011, for program movement over the summer of 2012. Administration from three current temporary locations will subsequently be moved to King. The Committee also closely monitored the hearings at General Chemical and their impact on the Woodrow Wilson Elementary School. School Choice The Committee reviewed the analysis of School Choice vs. Neighborhood Schools completed by the Superintendent, Dr. Hiersche. In sum, he found that the buildings are primarily located in the north of the town, while the majority of students in the district reside in the south. Over 600 of the district's 8,200 students would need busing regardless of any student assignment plan. In addition, savings due to placement of particular programs in only 1 -2 schools would be lost if those program were needed to be replicated in each school due to a neighborhood model. The Committee In April 2011, incumbents Michael Bower, David Miles and Carol Phalen were elected to three -year terms. After the election, the School Committee met to reorganize and elect officers. The School Committee elected Beverly Hugo as Chair, David Miles as Vice Chair and Richard Finlay as Clerk. In late December, Richard Finlay resigned his seat to accept a new professional opportunity. The School Committee thanked Mr. Finlay for his dedicated service. In closing, the School Committee would like to thank all Framingham Public School staff for their dedication to all of Framingham's students, all Town staff and elected officials, and all Framingham residents for their continued and unwavering support for Framingham Public School students. 2011 Annual Report Respectfully submitted, Beverly Hugo, Chair David Miles, Vice Chair Adam Blumer Michael J. Bower Andy Limeri Carol Phalen SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS REPORT In reflecting on the past year, several themes stand out for the school district. First and always foremost was the continued academic achievement of our students. Learning is the central purpose of our schools and Framingham students learned well in 2011. More students mean a need for more classrooms. The second theme was the ongoing effort to develop a budget that allows the schools to meet the educational needs of students and to do so with minimal support from the state and within the framework of local taxes. In 2011, this task involved significant efforts to contain costs and seek more assistance from the State and fall Town Meeting. 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 fifty six participating in 705 Advanced Placement Exams, in eighteen subjects, in 2011. 90% of the exams were passed and eligible for college credit. This compares with three hundred forty who took the exam in eighteen subjects in 2010. Through continuing aggressive efforts of the FHS Guidance Department, 96% of the junior class and 91% of the sophomore class took the Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test (PSAT). These numbers are impressive compared to the fact that 65% of the junior Edueation & Libraries 141 Town of Framingham 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 513 on the Critical Reading portion, 527 in the Mathematics portion, and 509 on the Writing Component. These scores compare well with National Averages which are 497, 514 and 489 respectively. The community should be proud that so many students take and pass a wide variety of 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 83% of the graduates in the Class of 2011 continued their education at an impressive variety of institutions of higher learning, including some of the most selective colleges in the country. Each year, the Boston Globe Scholastic Arts Awards, established in 1923, is an aggressive competition in which thousands of students participate and only the best are awarded with recognition. Twenty -eight Framingham Public School students took home awards in this arts competition. This past year, La Cantina Restaurant established a Scholarship program aimed at helping students, whose family does not meet the poverty threshold, but are experiencing hardships due to the economy. This program helps provide the funds for school lunch for those needy and deserving families. Precision Marketing of Framingham contributed to Woodrow Wilson Elementary School in donating a Reading Lounge, inspired by the book Igniting a Passion for Reading by Steven Layne, and was designed to give Wilson students a place to enjoy reading, complete with twenty -six beanbag chairs, floor lamps, and children's artwork about favorite books and reasons to read. Stapleton Elementary School was recognized in the Fall 2011 edition of MassResycle News for its recycling efforts. Fuller Middle School was the proud recipient of a donation from the BOSE Corporation of Framingham 2011 Annual Report enhancing its technology. Over one - hundred Framingham High School students participated in both the New England Math League Competition and the Math Olympiad. FHS placed fourteenth out of one hundred and seventy -five schools that participated. Genzyme Corporation continues to be a proud sponsor of the Reading Pals program at Brophy Elementary School promoting reading fluency and comprehension skills. The Buildings and Grounds Department was able to take advantage of a program from MA Energy Insight which allowed the district to acquire, free of charge, LED light bulbs valued at a cost of $10,000. Woodrow Wilson Elementary School staff and leadership have been investigating both the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme and the School of Innovation Grant as a solution to increasing student achievement at Wilson. Staff, parents, and community members have been involved in the preparation. There have already been changes in instruction in the classroom that the school is extremely excited about. We are looking forward to continuing that process. In December, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Commissioner Mitchell Chester visited Barbieri Elementary School along with the Director of English Language Learner Education for DESE to learn more about the Two -Way Program. Commissioner Chester spent the morning at Barbieri meeting with teachers, parents, school administrators and was impressed with the program. Town Meeting appropriated funds to achieve a balanced budget for FY12. The School Department is appreciative of the Town's financial support to provide its children with the quality education they deserve. Through the capital investment of $500,000 last summer, approved by Town Meeting, the district was greatly able to enhance its technology. Recognizing the value of providing a 21" century education, this Edueation & Libraries 142 Town of Framingham investment is critical to improving quality education. The success of the Framingham Public Schools in helping students achieve, in keeping pace with growing enrollments and in containing costs is the result of a highly professional staff and the tremendous support the schools have received from the community. On behalf of the students and staff of the Framingham Schools, thank you for your support. Respectfully submitted, Steven A. Hiersche, Ed.D. ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT CURRICULUM AND INSTRUCTION During the 2011 year, the district has been fortunate in being able to put more resources, including time, personnel and materials, into curriculum and instruction. This coincides with the adoption of the new Massachusetts frameworks in English Language Arts and math based on the Common Core, a set of academic standards adopted in forty -one (41) states, requirements and funding from Race to the Top Grant to the State and districts of Massachusetts. Alignment work in Framingham in English Language Arts (ELA) and math has been supported by new part time ELA and Math Curriculum Alignment Coordinators; two positions funded by grant revenues. These coordinators have formed teams of teachers, specialists, department heads and coaches. These groups are working to ensure that the curriculum taught in Framingham is the curriculum being assessed by the new MCAS assessments that are being phased in over the next two years. The Curriculum Alignment Coordinators have also been working with teachers on data analysis so that data may be used to improve instruction. Besides MCAS data, teachers in grades 3 through 9 utilize the norm reference assessment, Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) data in reading and math, as well as other assessments outlined in a new assessment calendar also developed this 2011 Annual Report year. Along with curriculum alignment efforts in math and ELA, we have been able to engage a team of teachers and administrators in Science and in Social Studies in reviewing our existing curriculum in each of these content areas, enriching it, ensuring it meets the state's frameworks, is consistent across the district and is linked between grade levels. Materials for middle school language arts, math, science and social studies, have been purchased and are being used daily. The materials include on -line resources that are needed for a new literacy and math lab at the middle level which provides remediation, extension and enrichment to students based on their identified needs. At the elementary level, new materials for struggling readers have been purchased and are being piloted which should be especially useful for students with limited English proficiency. Substantial dollars were also spent on leveled readers, chapter books, word study books, and other materials to upgrade existing resources in elementary classrooms, bookrooms and libraries. With the re- establishment of a district curriculum team, there has been more opportunity for collaboration among directors of bilingual education, special education, and gifted and talented education. The team has been working on more explicit planning around professional development for the Framingham teaching staff. Using research on effective professional development, we will develop a vision for all professional development to help ensure our limited resources are utilized most effectively. The curriculum team has begun to prepare for new English Language Learners standards based on World Class Instruction and Assessment (WIDA), adopted by 22 states including Massachusetts. District personnel have been learning about new assessments for limited English proficient students which will begin during the 2012 -2013 school year, also part of the WIDA adoption. On the horizon is an exploration of STEM ( science - technology- engineering -math) Edueation & Libraries 143 Town of Framingham curriculum. Individual teachers and schools have pursued a wide variety of programs and opportunities for students in these areas, making it the right time to work on coordination and standardization. Our first efforts will be at the middle and high school level. The past year has been a time for rebuilding and reawakening with respect to curriculum and instruction. A lot has been started, but much remains to be done to ensure that the structures, processes, personnel, policies and necessary resources are in place to support high quality education for each student in Framingham.

In addition, some teachers who are dually licensed 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, and integration with children without special needs. Framingham continues to see an increase in the number of children with autism, multiple disabilities /medical needs and developmental delays at the Pre - School level. At the High School level there is a significant increase in the number of students identified with social/ emotional disabilities. The severity of these disabilities presents challenges to the school district to develop new and additional programs in order to support 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 2011 Annual Report of children with disabilities in the schools through meetings and town wide newsletters. 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 2011, 14.0% 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 FHS. Due to the dedication of the staff and success of programming, FPS continues to be recognized as an educational leader in bilingual education. Our staff, from faculty to administration, is solicited for input across the state and plays an active role in Department of Elementary and Secondary Education sponsored initiatives for ELLS, the Urban ELL Director's Network, DESE Curriculum Summit, Massachusetts Reading Association - MRA ELL Ad -Hoc Committee, and various other policy groups. The Bilingual Department also continues to lend its particular expertise to several committees in the district reviewing curriculum, assessment, intervention, literacy, and data relating to the Edueation & Libraries 146 Town of Framingham education of all students in Framingham. This is an accurate and honorable recognition of the high quality of teachers, programs, and services provided at all of our schools. This year the Bilingual Education Department has sponsored several professional development opportunities to enhance teachers' 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. They have ranged from professional learning communities, to locally sponsored seminars, to participation in workshops lead by national leaders in instruction for ELLS. Staff and all levels of administration have worked collaboratively to expand ESL services for students and to bring expanded support to teachers of ELL students across the district. Another area of continued growth for our department has been the town -wide Bilingual Parent Advisory Council. The purpose of the group is to provide parents of ELL students an opportunity to meet and discuss the unique needs of their children. Over the summer the Bilingual Department in collaboration with FSU and the Framingham Adult ESL program sponsored ESL for the parents of our students. Over 100 parents participated in four different sections of beginner and intermediate ESL classes. Two sections comprised of our parents continued in the Fall and the Winter terms respectively of the Adult ESL program. This year, the co- presidents are actively involved in soliciting parent participation at the building level and have hosted meetings at different schools each month. Also, bilingual parents through the B -PAC participated in the search for the new Superintendent. The success of the town -wide B -PAC and the tireless efforts of the co- presidents reflect the extraordinary commitment of the Framingham community's parents to the education of their children. 2011 Annual Report 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. Anne Higgins, Ed.D. Director of Bilingual ADULT ESL PLUS Framingham Adult ESL Plus enrolled 670 students in each of two semesters for 2011. Students came from 32 countries and spoke 19 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 more fully integrated into the Framingham community. Forty -six students graduated from the program's highest levels and five students received their GED after successfully passing the GED examination. Attendance for the year was excellent with over 85% of enrolled students completing each semester. Highlights of 2011 include: • A highly successful fundraising event sponsored by the Metrowest ESL Fund and hosted by Susan Wornick which honored two of the rescued Chilean miners. • A week -long Monitoring Visit by The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education which lauded the program for high performance standards, innovative programming, and a highly qualified dedicated staff. • The development of a Framingham Adult ESL '' l u' Alumni Group to keep our graduates connected to the program. The effectiveness of educational programming at Framingham Adult ESL Plus is measured by Performance Standards for Edueation & Libraries 147 Town of Framingham 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 86 %. Pre and Post Test Percentage - Programs ensure that between 66% and 76% of eligible students are pre and post tested using the DESE's approved assessment tools. Framingham Adult ESL Plus pre and post - tested 93% 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 3.5 goals per year and met 1.6 goals per year. Another indication of program effectiveness is increased student involvement in the area's economy, schools, and community. Students report obtaining citizenship, joining school organizations, becoming more active in community groups, getting better 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. 2011 Annual Report 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 to the community, which has been so supportive. Christine Tibor Director, Framingham Adult ESL nips GIFTED AND TALENTED PROGRAMMING (SAGE) The Framingham Public Schools convened a Gifted & Talented Task Force during the 2010 -2011 year to review Sage program elements. This Task Force was comprised of Sage staff, administrators, teachers, and parents. Its goal was to review current and past practices, consider programming options that can best meet the needs of students and staff, and recommend program elements given current or additional staffing. The Task Force presented their results to the School Committee on March 15, 2011. Sage staff and administration used these findings and the reinstatement of a Sage staff position to guide the following program changes that have taken place during the 2011 -2012 school year. Elementary • The department has transitioned into a hybrid model to facilitate the exchange of ideas between the regular classroom teacher and the Sage teacher. • Pull out services are provided for identified students in Grades 3 -5 for approximately two hours per week. Scheduling by school dictates whether students have two one -hour blocks or one two -hour block. • Push -in services provides resources to classroom teachers in Grades K -5. Edueation & Libraries 148 Town of Framingham • Screening of current first grade referrals is underway with services to begin in September 2012. • Word Masters (Gr. 3 -5) and Math League (Gr. 4 & 5) is offered as an option to all students in those grades. • Programming exists in all buildings and placement of Sage itinerant staff is made according to numbers of identified students and the size of the building. Middle School In an effort to better serve Sage students at the middle school level, a move to a collaboration model is being made with a focus on differentiated instruction coaching. • The Collaborative Model: o Maximizes professional development and teacher collaboration via online classes, study groups, newsletters, teaming within the classroom setting, and presentations at staff and curriculum meetings. o Topics include cognitive complexity, compacting curriculum, tiered instruction, creativity and flexible grouping practices. • Staffing is comprised of three teachers working as a team (FTE 1.1) Student. • Student Programming: o Identified Sage students do not have a regularly scheduled pull out class. o Instead, students have opportunities to engage in options sponsored by the department including Word Masters, Focus Discussion Groups, and Independent Investigation during and after school. Students and families receive notices and mailings throughout the year of available activities. o Student support lunchtime discussion focus groups offerings include organization skills, self - regulation skills, stress management and goal setting. • Teacher Programming: o Provides imbedded professional development (coaching) o A three - credit hybrid course (primarily online with some in- person meetings) through Framingham State entitled "Teaching Tools 2011 Annual Report for the 21" Century" is available to middle school teachers. o A "Differentiation Toolkit" has been provided for each classroom placing practical strategies and solutions. o Teacher trainings were held during the course of the year. A half -day release for interested staff during the school day enabled specific concentration on ways to maximize use of the toolkit during teacher workshops. o Each team received a set of three resource books including: Differentiation: Simplified, Realistic and Effective•, Blooms and Beyond, and; Teaching Gifted Kids in the Regular Classroom: Strategies and Techniques Every Teacher Can Use to Meet the Academic Needs of the Gifted and Talented. o Alternative/ differentiated lessons are made available in support of the Thinkquiry resource and the Literacy Lab initiative. Town -wide Initiatives • Services have been centralized to better operate in conjunction with town -wide curriculum initiatives. • Sage staff serves on all curriculum leadership teams and is a member of the town -wide data team. • The department takes part in professional development opportunities offering workshops, study groups and college level courses both in person and online. • The Sage Department works in conjunction with Special Education and Bilingual Departments to streamline services for students. Diane Modest, Gifted and Talented Department Head K -12 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 four of our Title I schools, Barbieri, Brophy, McCarthy and Woodrow Wilson Elementary Schools, have "school -wide programs." This means that all students in the school are eligible to receive support through the Title I program. Edueation & Libraries 149 Town of Framingham In the Title I schools, we continue to provide interventionists who support the district goal of ensuring that all students make at least one year's growth in literacy and mathematics. This year, intervention groups as well as student learning goals were determined using student data at school - based, grade -level intervention meetings. These grade -level intervention meetings, which included interventionists, classroom teachers, and other support personnel, were held in the fall, reviewed in the winter, and will be revisited one more time in the spring at each school. In addition to the interventionists, Title I also continues to provide math coaches. The math coaches work closely with classroom teachers to support the mathematics achievement of those students most at risk of not meeting the state's high academic standards. Finally, Title I is also continuing to support data teams during the 2011 -2012 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 well- established in all schools. The Title I program is pleased with the support it is able to provide to students, families, and the general school community. Brett Berkman Director of Title I SCHOOL HEALTH SERVICES School Health Services (SHS) provide comprehensive nursing care to the students of Framingham Public Schools. Nurse staffing includes one full time nurse in each elementary and middle school, a part time nurse at Thayer Campus, 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. ESHS monies continue to 2011 Annual Report strengthen SHS infrastructure with personnel, professional development, and equipment, including technology. The Edward M Kennedy Health Center satellite clinic at Framingham High School (FHS) has been in operation for two years. Since it opened in January 2010, 140 students have enrolled and are accessing clinic services during the school day. During Fall 2011, Judy Styer, Director of School Health Services assisted with the development of the district's new concussion policy and protocol. The policy developed in collaboration with the high school school nurses, Athletic Director, Gary Doherty, Dr. Karen Sadler, school physician, and the district's athletic trainer, Patricia Pauris, is closely aligned with Massachusetts regulations, was approved by School Committee in February 2012 and is being implemented presently. Director Styer also contributed to the development of a new district policy related to service animals in schools and other health - related School Committee policy review and revisions. 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. The district's Teen Pregnancy and Parenting program is in its second year of a successful three year partnership with the United Way of Tri County. The program, "Strengthening Youth in a United Way' is staffed by two adolescent health nurses who provide support Edueation & Libraries 150 Town of Framingham and prevention services to pregnant teens, new teen mothers and fathers and other high risk students in the district. New to the program's work this year is the implementation of the "Teen Outreach Program" a national service learning program which is effective at increasing academic success and preventing teen pregnancy in high risk youth. This curriculum will be utilized in after - school programming at the high school. SHS continues its commitment to providing Preeminent nursing services to the FPS community. We look forward to another year of administering our program. Judy Styer Director of School Health Services BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS DEPARTMENT The Buildings and Grounds Department currently maintains sixteen school -owned buildings comprised of 1,655,076 square feet of building space and 265 acres of grounds, including athletic playing fields, paved driveways, walkways, parking lots and wooded areas. The department employs sixty custodians, ten maintenance personnel, one secretary, one administrative assistant, one interim assistant director and one director. Department objectives are as follows: 1) adhere to safety and health standards; 2) provide cleaning and maintenance inside and outside of building structures; 3) ensure security of buildings; 4) plan for and monitor efficient use of utilities; 5) provide year -round maintenance of grounds. Building maintenance and upgrades were planned for and accomplished through budget planning and capital project appropriation through Town Meeting approval. It is important to note that a long -term twenty -five year capital facilities plan was developed this year. The plan was submitted to the School Committee, Superintendent, 2011 Annual Report Assistant Superintendent, Board of Selectmen, Chief Financial Officer, Capital Budget Committee, Ways and Means, Town Manager, Assistant Town Manager and the Town Meeting Standing Education Committee. 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 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. Matthew Torti, Director of Buildings and Grounds Ernest Moreau, Interim Assistant 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 two 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 eight years Edueation & Libraries 151 Town of Framingham 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. In the 2011/2012 school year, the District's Transportation Department has successfully 2011 Annual Report made the Transition conversion from a Town operated system to a privately owned bus company system with Durham Transportation Services. The Transportation Department works closely with the Framingham Police Department's Safety Division, the Framingham Fire Department and the Department of Public Works. Rick Gallagher Transportation Director 7.11 This annual report is prepared by Superintendent /Director James Lynch and composed on behalf of the members of the School Committee of the South Middlesex Regional Vocational Technical School District and submitted after review and approval by the full Committee in compliance with the provisions of the Agreement among the towns of Ashland, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton and Natick. The Committee also noted the retirement of a number of long- term employees: Margaret Cahill, Cosmetology Teacher; Patricia Murray Canali, Principal; Melanie Leonard, Reading Teacher; Deborah Walley, Special Education Teacher; Neal Mahoney, Electrical Teacher. The Committee reorganized on June 6, 2011 with the following officers being elected unanimously to the following positions: As in recent past reports prepared by Committee member John Kahn, 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. Chair: Tassos Filledes Vice - Chair: Linda Fobes Secretary: Ed Burman Treasurer: Jack Keating Assistant Treasurer: Lawrence Cooper It was noted that Mr. Nelson Goldin has been awarded the Massachusetts Association of School Committees Lifetime Achievement for his many years of service on the School Committee. Mr. Goldin is a representative from Framingham. In July, the Committee welcomed a new member, Mr. Frank D'Urso, a member from the Town of Hopkinton who was appointed by their Board of Selectmen. Mr. D'Urso replaced Michelle Gates who resigned from the Committee in 2010. The Committee received, with regret, the resignation of Esther Hopkins, a Framingham Representative. The Edueation & Libraries 152 Town of Framingham Framingham Board of Selectmen and the members of the South Middlesex Regional Vocational Technical School District School Committee representing Framingham jointly voted to elect John Evans as the new member representing Framingham. This vote was in compliance with the District's Regional Agreement. Mr. Evans was welcomed onto the Committee at the August 29, 2011 meeting. 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 Staff and students of the construction cluster career and technical programs of Carpentry, Electrical, Plumbing, Horticulture and Metal Fabrication and Welding participated in many community projects throughout the School District member towns. Examples of these activities include electrical work performed at the Town of Natick's Morse Library, design and carpentry work performed at the Framingham Public Library, student engagement and internships at the Access Framingham Public Cable Station, and Carpentry work constructing a new building at the Holliston Senior Center. Several construction and maintenance jobs were completed for the Town of Framingham Parks and Recreation Department as well as Natick's Parks and Recreation Department. The Horticulture Department participated with the Framingham Department of Public Works on an Arbor Day celebration and planting activities on Keefe Technical School's property. Keefe Technical School has partnered with the Framingham Board of Health to provide an annual flu clinic for citizens. In addition, the Keefe Community hosted the MetroWest Leadership Academy to a tour, a program presentation on Career and Technical Education and lunch. Keefe also hosted a legislative breakfast in March and partnered with 12 other towns in that 2011 Annual Report event. School funding and local aid offered by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts was discussed with area legislators. Keefe hosted the annual Scholarship Breakfast of the MetroWest Chamber of Commerce as well as the Scholarship luncheon of the Framingham Rotary Organization. It should also be noted that all five District town high school's swimming teams practice and compete at the Keefe Technical School pool. The pool is also used by the Framingham and Natick Park and Recreation Department. Administration Effective on July 1, 2011, Jonathan Evans became the new Principal of Keefe Technical School. Jonathan replaced Patricia Canali who retired in June 2011. Jonathan was promoted from the position of Director of Student Services. Mr. Evans has been employed by the School District for 15 years, 8 as an administrator. The Superintendent re- structured the administration on July 1, 2011 and changed the management model of a student services director in charge of guidance and special education to a Director of Guidance and Placement and to a Director of Special Education. In addition, the Superintendent re- instated the position of Director of Technology that had been eliminated in 2010. All of these changes were accomplished within the parameters of the budget. In addition, the Superintendent established the position of Director of Education Programs. This position is funded with enterprise funds and the director has responsibility for developing and managing continuing education, post graduate, post- secondary, GED training and testing, community program development and supervision and collaboration with institutions of higher education and oversight of all District ELL programs. The Superintendent's Evaluation Sub - Committee considered the process by which the Committee and the Superintendent established goals for the administration against which the Superintendent's Edueation & Libraries 153 Town of Framingham 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 - Committee members are John Kahn, William Gaine, Linda Fobes, A.J. Mulvey and Dr. Stephen Kane, Chair. The School Committee adopted goals for the Superintendent's performance evaluation period from July 2011 through June 30, 2012. The goals adopted related to: developing District budgets that will meet the approval of the District Towns and managing them effectively; continuing to stabilize and to increase the student population; represent the interest of the School Committee in collective bargaining for a new teacher evaluation instrument in compliance with the RTTT grant and the new educator evaluation regulation; lead the staff toward the improvement of student performance and close the achievement gap in all assessed academic and CTE content areas; lead the staff to develop new career and technical curriculum components in existing programs and a new post - secondary offering; the Superintendent will lead the growth and development of adult education to satisfy training requirements for work force development. 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, 2015. The text of the contract is a public document and may be seen at the Keefe office. During the course of the year the Superintendent brought the administrative benefits policy before the Committee for 2011 Annual Report adjustment and alignment with other employment contracts in the District. School Improvement Plans The Committee adopted The School Improvement Plan for the 2010 — 2011 school year 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. The Committee reviewed the progress toward the goals of the 2010 -2011 School Improvement Plan. The report of Principal Canali noted tangible specific improvements in school safety, academic and CTE program growth, expanded participation in community initiatives and the continued improvements in the use of data. Discipline 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 In 2009, the Superintendent met with the leaders of the Keefe Tech Education Edueation & Libraries 154 Town of Framingham Association and the Chairman of the South Middlesex Regional Vocational Technical School District School Committee to form an alliance and apply for participation in the Race to the Top Grant Program that was offered in Massachusetts. The South Middlesex Regional Vocational Technical School District qualified for this grant and will have access to approximately $112,000.00 to be used over a four year period. This grant opportunity was designed to achieve five major objectives: improve educator effectiveness, improve curriculum and instruction, help to create school turnaround in identified low performing schools, improve college and career readiness, and to provide educators with real time actionable data through improved data systems and infrastructure. The Superintendent expressed pride that at Keefe Regional Technical School labor (Teachers Association), management (Superintendent and Administration) and the employer (School Committee) will be working together to participate in this education improvement initiative. These funds and the anticipated DESE assistance will allow our school district to implement the stated improvements in a timely and effective manner. I anticipate that these changes will be required of all districts within three years. Post Graduate Program The Keefe post - graduate program serves current or recent (1 to 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 Stephen Kane, Yvonne Giargiari, Ruth Knowles, Larry Cooper and Linda Fobes under the Chair, Edward Burman presented a preliminary FY13 budget representing a 5.78% increase (approximately $890,000) over the prior year's actual budget. The final FY12 budget reflected a 2.74% increase. 2011 Annual Report 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 member towns and was approved by all ($15,506,373). Auditor's Report The annual audit by the independent accounting firm of McCarthy & Hargrave disclosed no inaccuracies in the financial statements. The GASB 45 report was noted. The audit report also noted that the energy project had met its stipulated guarantee benchmarks. Business Office The business office staff of the South Middlesex Regional Vocational Technical School District has designed and implemented many improvements over the past two years. Human resource management, employee benefits programs, procurement practices, contract proposals, grant fund accounting, grant management, student cafeteria management, student nutrition, budget preparation and management, continuing education registration and inventory control are all components of the business office operations that have undergone significant changes and efficiencies. The most significant improvement to our operation has been the conversion to a new business management accounting software known as Budget Sense. This major conversion from an antiquated system positions the South Middlesex School District to take advantage of available technology changes as we proceed into the 21" century. In 2011 -12, our business office staff will focus on fine tuning the Budget Sense conversion by providing professional development training as needed for our staff. Edueation & Libraries 155 Town of Framingham In addition, our business manager and human resource generalist will collaborate with the administrative staff to complete the task of updating all of our professional position job descriptions. The business office staff will also engage with the Superintendent to analyze and prepare for changes in health insurance offerings due to recent legislative actions. State Aid The Governor and Legislature again proposed reductions in state aid to transportation ( -50 %). 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. Siemens' Energy Conservation Project Siemens Industry provided the South Middlesex Regional Vocational Technical School District with an energy savings guarantee report. This report details the guarantee period savings by comparing the guaranteed energy savings versus the actual energy savings. The total verified energy savings for year three of the performance contract is $557,284. The total guaranteed savings were projected to be $540,419. The difference between the total guaranteed savings versus the actual savings results in an additional savings of $16,866. 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 Insurance Advisory Committee JAC) met and recommended that the District employees increase their co -pay 2011 Annual Report 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 The Keefe Regional Technical School is a school of application. Maintaining a healthy enrollment of students for our day school operation is essential for our financial support and overall operational success. Our enrollment has improved in the last two years and we are expecting further improvements this year. The superintendent has indicated that he believes that the quality and rigor of our school programs and the safety and culture of our school environment will dictate our success in attracting students and their families to Keefe Technical School. The Superintendent has emphasized that the administration, faculty and support staff must work together to ensure that Keefe is recognized by our community as a career and technical school of high quality. We have improved and will continue to improve our marketing techniques, our communication with our school district sending town middle and high schools, and with our connection to prospective students and their families. It is the Superintendent's plan to expand our career and technical program offerings from a present level of 14 to our original level of 17 over the next 3 to 5 years. This proposed expansion will take careful planning and collaboration with our District School Committee. As a result of our re- organization of the delivery of education programs that occurred in the 2010 -11 school year, our facility is positioned to absorb the planned growth. It is the Superintendent's intent that our new CTE offerings satisfy the work force needs of the greater Metro west area. Buildings and Grounds The Keefe Regional Technical School opened its doors in September of 1973. As we begin Edueation & Libraries 156 Town of Framingham our 38`' year of operation, the superintendent reported that he is pleased to report that our facility is doing well. Thanks to a comprehensive energy upgrade that was completed in 2008, our facility is poised to move forward without the necessity for major structural improvements. Our maintenance and custodial staffs continue to take ownership for the quality of our building and grounds. We recently completed having a contractor perform improvements to our 100 foot smoke stack that will improve the structural integrity of the smoke stack and the functioning efficiency of our boilers. We anticipate that future projects for our District facility will involve a new roof membrane, parking lot improvements, sealing our concrete building envelope, and athletic locker room renovations. The superintendent also anticipates investigating in the installation of photo voltaic solar panels on our roof after the installation of a new roof membrane is completed. To begin the process of capital improvements, the Committee authorized the Superintendent to file a Statement of Interest with the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA). 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 achieved 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. 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 2011 Annual Report the number at proficient or higher increased by 10% while the number failing decreased by 2 %. In October, the Committee was informed that according to the 5 level scaling systems created by the DESE under the Educational Reform Act of 2010; Keefe has been categorized as a level 1 school. Schools with an NCLB accountability status of "no status" or "improvement year 1 or 2" are categorized as a level 1 school. Districts are placed in Level 1 if the highest level of any school in the district is level 1. In February Keefe hosted 600 student participants in the SkillsUSA District Competition at which our students received 7 gold medals, 10 silver and 3 bronze. As part of the teamwork's competition, 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 "Ms. Nelson is Missing ". The event was open to students during school hours and to parents and friends in the evening. The stage 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 Edueation & Libraries 157 Town of Framingham license status of student professional programs that advance Keefe students vocational entry opportunities.

Gaine, Jr. FRAMINGHAM Nelson Goldin Michael Rossi John Kahn Linda Fobes Director's Retirement Having served the FPL in various capacities for 17 years, Director Jeanne Kelley announced her retirement in February, 2012. The Trustees commended her for the many contributions she has made to the Library, including improving customer service; maintaining staff morale and hiring new staff, and keeping the Library on an even keel during difficult times. A search committee is interviewing applicants for the Director's position. Helping to Build the New McAuliffe Library and Open the Door to Tomorrow On July 14, 2011, the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners (MBLC) voted to place Framingham Public Library (McAuliffe Branch) #6 on a waiting list for a provisional library construction grant of $4.2 million. With 12,000 patron visits per month, McAuliffe is the second busiest of the 106 branch libraries in Massachusetts, but among the smallest of the branch libraries. McAuliffe's circulation exceeds that of many main libraries and the facility is too small to adequately serve the needs of patrons. 2011 Annual Report James Cameau A.J. Mulvey John H. Evans, III Larry Cooper HOPKINTON Ruth Knowles Frank J. D'Urso, Jr. HOLLISTON Richard Lanoue Yvonne Giargiari NATICK Tassos Filledes Dr. Stephen Kane The preliminary design is for a one -story building of about 17,000 square feet, adjacent to the Nobscot Plaza. The new McAuliffe Branch Library will provide a larger children's room, dedicated space for young adults, more public computers, outlets for laptops, a meeting room, study rooms, comfortable reading chairs, easy to reach shelves, an ADA compliant building, and will be a green LEED certified building. The Library will request $3.8 M from the Town when the grant funding is received, estimated to be around July 2013. The Framingham Public Library Foundation's goal is to raise $600,000 towards this project. Improving Accessibility The entrances to the Main Library are not in compliance with state codes. In April 2011, Town Meeting allocated $50,000 to prepare a preliminary design for new entrances. The Library Trustees engaged Abacus Architects and Planners of Allston to prepare the preliminary designs. The FY 2013 Capital Budget includes a line item for rebuilding the Lexington Street entrance. The Library will Edueation &Libraries 158 Town of Framingham include the Pearl Street entrance in a future capital budget. We appreciate the efforts of Building Committee Chair Sam Klaidman and the Trustees, community members, and members of the Disability Commission who have worked on this project. Reaching Out to the Community We have had a productive and busy year responding to community needs and providing a multitude of varied educational and enriching programs. For job seekers, we provided monthly Job Searching Online workshops, weekly resume help and job discussion group meetings. In total, 6,429 people attended Adult Programs that were sponsored by the Library during the last calendar year. Highlights of the year included a very successful Framingham Reads Together (FRT) program spearheaded by Trustee Elizabeth Fideler that featured Michael Shaara's "Killer Angels: A Novel of the Civil War ". This community wide event offered a wide selection of programs related to the Civil War. Currently, a new FRT Committee is planning the next FRT event to be held in 2013. Another highlight of the year was the Lifelong Learning Series collaboration between the Library and Framingham State University (FSU). Ten scholar -led presentations were held in the spring and fall at the Library and at the University. The Adventures in Lifelong Learning Program, another successful collaboration with FSU, presented classes for seniors held on Tuesdays in October. Support for this project was provided in part by the MetroWest Health Foundation. FPL is one of the only libraries in the Commonwealth to offer Friday evening programming. The Monthly Friday Night Film Series, Sunday Concert Series and Summer Concert Series frequently attracted 2011 Annual Report capacity crowds. Special events have included programs on varied subjects, as well as author visits and documentary films. We appreciate the support received from local businesses that helped defray the costs of programming as well as the support of the Framingham Cultural Council. Most of all, we greatly appreciate the efforts of Trustee Bob Dodd for his generous contribution of ideas and time that have made so many of these events possible and to the Friends of the Framingham Library whose efforts help fund the majority of programs. The Library continued to do an outstanding job of meeting the needs of its patrons. In 2011, the Library ranked 6" highest in circulation out of 370 libraries in the Commonwealth. A total of 436,613 visits were made to the Library this year, an average of 8,396 visits per week. A typical week recorded 1,848 reference transactions and 1,992 uses of the Internet and electronic resources. Presently, there are 38,937 residents with active Framingham Public Library cards. The Library has been lending e -books and e- audio books through the Minuteman Library Network's Digital Media Catalog since October of 2009. In 2011, we saw our most significant increase in e -book circulation to date, with a 271 % increase from 2010 to 2011. The Framingham Public Library Foundation The Framingham Public Library Foundation has been raising funds for the Main Library and for the new McAuliffe Branch Library. The Foundation has already received a number of donations, plus several substantial pledges from individual and corporate donors. See www.fplf.org for more information about the Foundation, a 501(c) (3) organization. We thank Jo -Anne Thompson, chair of the Foundation, the Foundation Board, and other volunteers for their hard work on behalf of the Foundation. Library Trustee News Edueation & Libraries 159 Town of Framingham In April 2011, incumbents Danielle Barney, Arthur Finstein, Sam Klaidman, and Jo -Anne Thompson were elected to serve as Trustees for three -year terms.

The members of the Cable Advisory Committee were: W. Peter Barnes, Annabel Dodd (Chair), Sam Klaidman, James Schiavone, and Norma Shulman. 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. 2011 In addition the CBC recommended to Town Meeting Enterprise Funds projects totaling $15,187,473. The projects were as follows: Water Enterprise Fund $3,608,129 and Sewer Enterprise Fund $11,579,344. The sources of funding were mostly 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. 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 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.

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 re- glazing of all windows in the Chapel. This will give a longer life span to all windows within the Chapel. Many windows had sustained damage over the years, and as a result were replaced to improve the look of the Chapel. A major project that was completed within the Chapel during 2011 was the repainting of all trim work within the Chapel. This has improved the aesthetics of the Chapel and has received many compliments from Town employees as well as the public. The Chapel would like to thank the Framingham Building Services department for their continued work on the Chapel. Without their aide the improvements that were completed over the last year would not have been possible. We would also like to thank and acknowledge the Framingham Garden Club whose members keep the outside 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. Fitts General Committees 162 Town of Framingham Annual Report Disability Commission Members: Karen Foran Dempsey (Chair), Elise Marcil (Vice Chair/ Clerk) Rose Quinn (Treasurer), Kathie McCarthy, Deb Freed, Dennis Moran, Jennifer Davis, Jim Egan, Susie Santone. This past July 26" marked the 21" Anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a Federal Civil Rights Law. The Commission continues to ensure that the Town is implementing changes outlined in the 2005 ADA Self - Evaluation and Transition Plan for municipal buildings. We continue to work with Town departments to bring Framingham into compliance with MA Architectural Access Board and Federal ADA regulations. Some access improvements that have been completed to municipal buildings include: • Village Hall: an accessible walkway and an automatic door opener. • Nevins Hall stage: an accessible lift. • Town Hall: a new accessible ramp and automatic door opener on the Union Street side entrance. The Bowditch Field Athletic Complex received a 2011 Access Design Award from the MA Architectural Access Board and the Boston Society of Architects for incorporating accessiblity for people with Disabilities into their design. Fall Town Meeting approved funds for a study to bring the Main Library's two ramps into compliance. Three Commissioners were asked to serve on the Library's Building Committee to assist with the access design of the project. The Commission had many guest presenters at our meetings who shared 2011 valuable information with us: • Alexis Silver, Caregiver Homes of MA • Eva Willens, MetroWest Regional Transit Authority • Robert Merusi, Director of Parks & Rec • Matthew Torti, Director of Buildings and Grounds of Framingham Schools • Jeanne Kelley, Director of the Framingham Public Library. The Commission expended funds from the HP Fines Account for three worthy programs: • $5,625 for the Piers Park Adaptive Sailing program, which taught 15 Framingham children with Disabilities how to sail. • $6,000 toward the Juniper Hill School accessible playground project. The money will specifically pay for a portion of the wheelchair - accessible rubberized surface. • $7,000 toward the new accessible family restroom at the Main Library. We wish to thank the Board of Selectmen, the town departments and Town Meeting for their continued support of our important programs and activities. We especially want to thank David Williams, Asst. Town Manager /ADA Coordinator and Douglas Goddard, Capital Building Projects Manager who have helped to bring positive changes to the Town and have assisted the Disability Commission with our mission. We look forward to working closely with the Town to ensure that Framingham is in compliance with all State and Federal Disability Access laws. Respectfully Submitted, Karen Foran Dempsey, Chair General Committees 163 Town of Framingham Annual Report Edgell Grove Cemetery During the fiscal year 2011, there were 50 Burials, 48 Cremations and 102 grave sales. A major rehabilitation of the 127 - year old chapel was completed with new plastering and paneling. Much restorative work was also done on the mausoleum. Roads throughout the cemetery were repacked and extensively re- graded. Tree maintenance and continued restoration on old headstones was completed. Respectfully Submitted, Stan Fitts, Chairman Bill 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 2011, the Committee met 34 times, and participated in the Annual Town Meeting and four 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 2011, the Finance Committee representative to the Structural Deficit Review Task Force also chaired the Task Force. The Committee 2011 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. This year was characterized by significant fiscal challenges. Revenue growth was disrupted due to ongoing unpredictability in state and federal government revenue sources, and continuing decline in local receipts, and new growth in property taxes. Significant concessions were made on health care for employees, and for some collective bargaining units. However, large expenses such as special education out -of- district tuition, and certain collective bargaining agreements continue to escalate faster than revenue. In position papers, letters to Town Meeting, and communications with municipal and school officials, the Finance Committee continued to emphasize the need for the Town to break the cycle of living beyond its means and to plan for long -term financial stability. The Committee recommended that the Town: • Ensure that salaries and benefits do not grow faster than projected revenue; • Minimize dependence on non- recurring revenue sources (such as grants, revolving funds, withdraws or diversions from the stabilization fund, free cash, and stimulus money) to support recurring expenses; • Understand and begin to address unfunded liabilities for post - employment benefits such as health care; General Committees 164 Town of Framingham Annual Report • Continue to build the stabilization fund close the gap with the Town's police goal; • Maximize operational efficiencies wherever possible, including consolidations, technology, and evaluating service delivery such school choice and custodial services; and • Review all building use and potential building needs across the Town, including the schools, and develop plans for cost efficient use and capital planning. The Finance Committee emphasized the need to address shrinking revenue growth and keeping property taxes affordable by addressing the critical need for encouraging growth in new construction and in economic development. Many recommendations were integrated in some form into the Structural Deficit Reduction Task Force's final report. The Finance Committee's budget recommendations targeted immediate fiscal realities. In FY 2012, the School Department budget difficulties continued as more federal stimulus money disappeared, and salary increases negotiated collective bargaining agreements presented challenges, even with significant concessions. The following Reserve Fund appropriations were made in FY 2011: $50,000 for the Fire Department and $350,000 for Snow and Ice Removal. A Reserve Fund appropriation of $90,000 was made to the Health Department in FY 2012. Per provisions of MGL, the Finance Committee authorized deficit spending for Snow and Ice in FY 2011. Members of the Finance Committee as of December 31, 2011: Elizabeth Funk 2011 (2013), Chair, Daniel Lampl, Vice Chair (2014); Linda Dunbrack, Clerk (2012); Leonard Finkel (2013); Steven Hakar (2012); Laurence W. Marsh (2014); Carol Sanchez (2013), Nancy Wilson (2012) and John Zucchi, (2014). The Finance Committee thanks Nicolas Sanchez (2012) for his 2 -years of service. We also express our appreciation to CFO Mary Ellen Kelley and Assistant CFO Jennifer Pratt for their ongoing expertise and support. Respectfully Submitted, Betty Funk, Chair Government Study Committee The Government Study Committee had an excellent year. We met ten times with active participation and lively, productive discussion. Our major effort this year was focused on updating the Personnel Bylaw. This bylaw has been out of date since the implementation of the Town Manager Act in 1996. In 2010, Town Meeting rejected our proposal to eliminate the Personnel Bylaw section of the General Bylaws. A proposed update, prepared for fall town meeting this year by a joint subcommittee of GSC and SCW &M members, was not acceptable to town counsel so we continue to work on the revisions. We hope to present a revised proposal to town meeting for consideration in 2012. The committee submitted a warrant article to complete bylaw changes related to the elimination of the Board of Public Works. This was approved by Town Meeting. Discussions were held with the Disability Commission and the Board of Health regarding their possible inclusion under the auspices of Town Meeting standing General Committees 165 Town of Framingham Annual Report committees. Neither group felt that it was appropriate to do so therefore no further action was taken. Working with the ZBA, a warrant article was submitted and approved to allow cell phone antennae installations on the site of the Framingham transfer station. It was felt that this would preclude installation on less desirable sites and have the potential to provide revenue to the town. This was approved by Town Meeting. The GSC continues to work on a proposal to limit excessive public safety calls; administrative corrections to the General Bylaws; and Town Meeting attendance standards. For further details please read our meeting minutes. All 2011 minutes are accessible on the town web site. Historical Commission In 2011, as in years past, The Framingham Historical Commission worked on review of applications for building demolition. Most properties that we reviewed were released quickly as being non - significant. When buildings slated for demolition were determined to be architecturally or historically significant, the FHC worked with the applicants to see if there were acceptable alternatives to total of partial demolition. This past year was a slower year in terms of building and demolition applications and the FHC used much of its time finalizing a review of Framingham's existing Demolition Delay Bylaw. We hope to bring a warrant article to the Fall Town Meeting in 2012 that will afford those buildings we deem to be significant added protection against demolition and a loss of Framingham's rich historic and cultural past. We look forward to the challenges ahead in advocating for the Town's rich heritage. 2011 Respectfully submitted, David Marks, Chair Frederick Wallace, Vice Chair Clint Knight, Secretary Perry Bent Gerald Couto Paul Silva Jane Whiting Historic District Commission The Framingham HDC held 12 meetings during 2011 held a number of public hearings and issued 5 Certificates of Appropriateness and 2 revised Certificates of Appropriateness. We saw the departure of long time Member and former Chair, Christopher Walsh, A.I.A., welcomed new members Doug Becker and, following an absence of many years, former member Sandra Marder In June the Board of Selectmen reappointed members Gerald Couto, A.I.A., Ted Grenham, Henry Field and Helen Lemoine. The Commission then reorganized and elected Gerald Couto, A.I.A, Chair, Susan Bernstein, Vice -Chair and Ron Lamphere, Clerk. Chairman Couto and member Julie Ferrari joined the Town Common Working Group in September. Ms. Ferrari, a Registered Landscape Architect, worked extensively with Mr. Daniel Nau, Tree Warden, to redesign the area and select appropriate trees for planting. The Commission, at the request of the Town Clerk's Office, increased the filing fee for a Certificate of Appropriateness from $25 to $50. This is the first increase in this fee since the creation of the Commission over 30 years ago. Working with the Board of Selectmen, the Commission established that the stage for General Committees 166 Town of Framingham Annual Report the Concerts on the Common was a temporary structure and was required to be removed each year at the conclusion of the concert series. The Commission also worked on the clarification and revision of the Commission Rules, discussed the possibilities of new Historic Districts in the Belknap Road area and in the village of Saxonville, clarified the voting status of Alternate Members following consultation with, and advice from, Town Counsel's Office discussed the possibility of creating a web site for the Commission and the erection of signs marking the existing Historic Districts. The Commission looks forward to completing these unfinished projects during the coming year.

Sandi Marder Helen Lemoine Ted Grenham Henry Field Human Relations Commission In keeping with our purpose to deal with issues which may create disunity within the Framingham community, the Commission met monthly to address various situations which arose during the past year. Included in these topics, but not limited to, were the concerns raised in the presentation of "The Laramie Project" at the High School, and then the possible ramifications for the community at the death of Bin Laden. Likewise we have continued to review the controversy 2011 surrounding teacher evaluations and concerns raised by "The American Federation of Teachers ", "Citizens for Public Schools ", and other groups, as they impact our community schools. We sponsored a lecture presented by Dr. Kayed Khalil on the topic "The Palestinian Issue and the Peace Process." Beginning last year, and into the current year, we are reviewing the issue of human trafficking and its ramifications. As well as being members of the Commission, Commissioners are involved in such activities as Partakers Program at MCI Framingham, Amnesty International, Mass Association of the Blind, NAACP, and The Alliance for MetroWest Unity. We meet the second Thursday of the month at 7:OOpm in the Town Hall. Respectfully Submitted, Bob Anspach, Chair The Real Property Committee The Real Property Committee is charged with making recommendations to Town Meeting on all matters concerning the purchase, sale, or lease of town owned property. The committee met twice in 2011. In January we met to consider the purchase of land on Water Street for a new branch library. The committee recommended favorably on the Town Meeting warrant article authorizing the purchase. In April we met and considered articles pertaining to the lease of the Mount Watte Incinerator Building for wireless antennas, the granting of construction easements to Framingham State University, and the town acquisition of the historic houses adjacent to the Park and Ride facility on Route 9. The committee acted favorably in each case. Respectfully Submitted, Ned Price, Chairman General Committees 167 Town of Framingham Annual Report Technology Advisory Committee 2011 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 several 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 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. We were sad to see Adam Seldow leave the district for another position; however, we were pleased that the Superintendent sought a replacement very quickly. In keeping with its charter, the TAC reviewed the Capital Budget in 2011 and advised on Capital Technology purchases and initiatives. The TAC also worked closely with the subcommittee on electronic voting to understand the benefits and misconceptions of electronic 2011 voting to help facilitate the purchase of a electronic voting system as approved by town meeting.

Except for July and August, the SCPZ meets regularly on the first Wednesday of the month. Additional meetings are held as needed. At the 2011 Annual Town Meeting, 16 of the Town's 18 precincts appointed members to sit on the SCPZ. Since the 2011 Annual Town Meeting, the average attendance at SCPZ meetings has been 9.4 members. A partial list of the topics discussed at SCPZ meetings since the 2011 Annual Town Meeting include: additional zoning regulations concerning chicken coops and Town Meeting 171 Town of Framingham Annual Report professional dog kennels in residential zones, Framingham's Downtown Renaissance Initiative, two family houses in the General Residence Zone, Framingham accepting the Community Preservation Act, and enforcement of Zoning Board of Appeals decisions. Additionally, the SCPZ reported to the 2011 Fall Town Meeting concerning two zoning articles. Respectfully Submitted, Ned Price, Chair Standing Committee on Public Safety In 2011, the Standing Committee saw a change in the chairman and we also had a large amount of turnover within our membership. We continued our role to analyze, vote on and make recommendations to Town Meeting on articles relating to the Police, Fire and Inspectional Services Departments. The committee met on April 4th with Police Chief Steven Carl and Deputy Chief Ken Ferguson. Chief Carl discussed in great detail about the Secure Communities program and how it will be implemented by 2013, as mandated by Federal law. We heard of the continued constraints of their budget, the concerns of staffing and not having the amount of patrol cars they feel that are needed in patrolling the streets of Framingham. We also met on April 4th with Fire Chief Gary Daugherty and Deputy Chief John Magri to discuss their Town Meeting requests. The new ladder truck, multi -gas meters and the defibrillators were approved. A request for the replacement of Engine 1 was deferred and will be brought back at the next Town Meeting. 2010 The committee met with Mike Foley, the Director of Building and Inspectional Services, on April 21 ". He explained how his budget has been reduced and how he needs to do more with less. The code enforcement division has been cut back as well as the sign officer position, which has been cut by 50 %. This drastic cut to an essential position will surely lead to a significant challenge for the Inspectional Services Department as the Sign By -law requires all signs within the Town to be in compliance by December 1, 2012. Respectfully Submitted, Janet Leombruno, Chairwoman Standing Committee on Public Works The SCPW focused heavily on research during 2012, with updates being prepared on issues defined to Town Meeting last October. At press time, the SCPW is organizing the large amount of loosely collated material requested last November and received in February from the Dept. of Public Works (DPW). Included are all records concerning out -of -town connections to the town's sewer system, where located, dates of agreements, who authorized them, and how they will impact on our system. This data is vital since it took protracted litigation against Ashland to obtain adequate payment for use of the town's sewer system. Moreover, the SCPW is concerned that the town doesn't fail again to conduct adequate collections with these customers as it previously did with those in Natick. The SCPW is evaluating information that indicates there are still connections to Natick customers that have not been severed and the town is still not being paid for this service. Town Meeting 172 Town of Framingham Annual Report Meanwhile, there are public health issues, airborne and ground pollution from the grinding of asphalt, etc. in the area adjacent to the Birch Road Wells, which could further contaminate the town's future water supply. These serious concerns are supported by extensive medical research and the recent "Cease and Desist" order by the town in this matter. Other issues being researched will be reported to Town Meeting as data is obtained and confirmed. Respectfully Submitted, Laurence M. 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 members to make informed decisions on motions and have the actions taken recorded in the Town Meeting Journal. We request reports at the Annual and Special Town Meetings based on motions and resolutions made at Town Meetings during the previous year and on general laws. We understand that a question on a report must be made during discussion of the department's budget. We would like to have overhead presentations made at Town Meeting be clear and visible. The Rules Committee updated the Town Meeting Member's Handbook for the 2011 Annual Town Meeting so that it continues to be a useful working document. The Rules Committee sponsored an article at the Fall Town Meeting to rent an electronic voting system for two years together with support for a Voting 2010 Administrator. The system will include keypads that have an LED display and uses enhanced security techniques. This proposal was approved and will be available for the 2012 Annual Town Meeting. The Rules Committee sponsored a warrant article to change the bylaw on Standing Committees to require that members of a committee acknowledge when they are also a member of another committee that would appear to be a conflict of interest. The bylaw was approved. Respectively Submitted, Joel Winett, Chair 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. The SCW &M held 23 meetings in 2011 to work on the budget and warrant articles for Special Town Meetings (STM) and the Annual Town Meeting (ATM) and met with article sponsors and those with data, expertise and perspective pertinent to a thorough due diligence process. In collaboration with the Government Study Committee (GSC) and with town counsel's aid, the committee continued work on article 5 of the fall 2010 STM Town Meeting 173 Town of Framingham Annual Report which preserved the Personnel Board. An article will be in the 2012 ATM warrant proposing bylaw revisions which will facilitate reports from the personnel board to town meeting on proposed changes to compensation and classification plans. After extensive analyses of both the proposed compensation plan (ATM article 17) and the consideration of acquiring a conservation restriction on Eastleigh Farms, the SCW &M recommended town meeting refer them both back to the sponsor. Town meeting concurred. In both cases the information available during analysis was inadequate and left too many questions unanswered. Seeing this same deficiency overall, the Moderator urged those involved with articles to improve the quality and availability of information required by the committees to do their work. In October the CFO discovered a $1.5M operating budget error and a $1M error in water and sewer capital stemming from debt conversion. We participated in a BOS meeting during which the CFO outlined how the error occurred and suggested appropriations to close the gaps. At the STM, the committee recommended and town meeting voted to adopt the CFO's recommendation. 2010 In an ongoing effort to pursue cost cutting opportunities which preserve services, this committee recommended favorable action to grant the school dept. permission to enter a five year school bussing contract which TM approved. The SCW &M supported the Capital Budget Committee's recommendations. In addition, a capital request for $488K for Memorial Building projects did not get the committee's or town meeting's support. The request was void of a strategic plan for the life and use of the building. Special thanks to these 2011 SCW &M members: Teri Banerjee (Vice- Chair) (Pct.1), David Longden, Jr. (Pct. 2), Scott Estes (Pct.4), Eric Glazer (Pct.6) Joel Winett (Pct.7), Dorothy Collier (Pct. 8), Ghafoor Sheikh (Pct.9), Lloyd Kaye (Pct.10), Peter Pleshaw (Clerk) (Pct.11), Mark McClennan (Pct.12), Michael Zimmer (Pct.13) Jim Rizzoli (Pct.14), Ida Williams (Pct.15) Laura Rodriguez (Pct. 17), Rosemary Jebari (Pct. 18).

Drive -thru Facility Regulations. Q. DRIVE -THRU FACILITY REGULATIONS: 191 1. Purpose The purpose of this By -law is to provide site design guidance at the planning application stage in order to assess, promote, and achieve appropriate development of a drive -thru facility. Each drive -thru facility will be reviewed in conjunction with this By -law for specific site context and conditions. 2. General Provisions a. Drive -thru Facility Application: Applications for a new drive -thru facility or for modification of existing structures submitted after the adoption of this section shall require a Special Permit from the Planning Board in conformance with the provisions of this section herein. b. Drive -thru Facility: The portion of an establishment that provides or dispenses products or services by an attendant or an automated machine to persons remaining in vehicles that are in designated stacking lanes. A drive -thru facility may be a stand -alone establishment or in combination with other uses such as a financial institution, personal service store, retail store, eating establishment, or gasoline station. c. Elements of a Drive -thru Facility: A drive -thru facility is composed of the stacking lanes and the service area. A stacking lane is the space occupied by vehicles queuing for the service to be provided. The service area includes, but is not limited to, the order stations, windows, menu boards, speakers, and lighting. 3. Drive -thru Facility Site Design Standards a. The access points to the drive -thru facility from the public way shall be constructed a sufficient distance from roadway intersections to prevent traffic conflicts, overflow, and congestion. When possible, the drive -thru facility shall exit onto a secondary street. b. The stacking lanes and service area shall be located to the side or rear of the buildings and site. c. All driveways and stacking lanes shall be clearly delineated on -site with pavement markings and traffic control signage. d. The exit from the drive -thru facility shall have unobstructed lines of vision clear of vegetation and signage. The maximum number of stacking lanes permitted for: i. food /eating establishments is two stacking lanes; ii. financial institutions is two stacking lanes; and iii. all other drive -thru facilities is one stacking lane. 192 f. The drive -thru facility shall be designed to reduce pedestrian and vehicular conflicts. A minimum of seventy -five percent of the parking spaces shall be designed so there are no conflicts between the stacking lanes and the pedestrian access into the establishment. g. Adequate space shall be provided between the stacking lane and the parking field to maintain safe parking conditions. h. The stacking lanes shall not block access to parking spaces, on -site loading areas, and trash removal operations and facilities. i. The stacking lanes shall be effectively separated from the parking field through the use of curbing, raised islands, and /or landscaping improvements. The Planning Board may permit the use of hardscape improvements such as decorative pavers and bollards to meet this design objective. j. Each stacking space within a stacking lane shall be a minimum of twenty feet in length and ten feet in width along straight portions and twelve feet in width along curved segments of the stacking lane. k. All interior pedestrian crosswalks shall be a minimum of eight feet in width, and constructed of material that contrasts with driveway and surface treatments. The Planning Board may require crosswalks to be raised up to curb level. 1. An emergency exit and /or by -pass lane may be required for the stacking lane or service area. m. The service area and stacking lanes shall be located a sufficient distance from the property line of adjacent uses to prevent noise or lighting impacts. n. In addition to the standard requirements of the Zoning By -law, the Planning Board may require additional buffering and screening to effectively shield adjacent properties from a drive -thru facility. o. When a drive -thru facility is proposed on a property within an historic building as defined under Section IV.G.7.b.3. of the Framingham General By -laws, the architectural character defining exterior elements of the historic building shall be preserved. p. The service area shall incorporate weather protection features. 4. Number of Required Drive -thru Stacking Spaces a. Food/Eating Establishment (including, but not limited to, Fast Order Food Establishment and Restaurant establishments) 193 i. A minimum of ten stacking spaces shall be provided before the service area. If the service area has two order stations, the ten stacking spaces may be divided between each of the order stations. ii. A minimum of five additional stacking spaces shall be provided after the order station. If the drive -thru facility has a transaction window before the pick -up window, an additional two stacking spaces are required between the transaction window and the pick -up window. iii. A minimum of two designated customer delivery spaces shall be provided for a drive -thru facility. b. Financial Institution — A minimum of three stacking spaces shall be provided before the transaction service (i.e. teller window, automated teller, or automated teller machine). If the facility has two stacking lanes, the stacking spaces may be divided between the two stacking lanes. c. All Other Drive -thru Facilities — A minimum of four stacking spaces shall be provided before the transaction service. The Planning Board may require additional stacking spaces based on the anticipated queuing demand for the drive -thru facility. 5. Additional Conditions, Limitations, and Safeguards The Planning Board may by special permit, with a four -fifth vote, waive the above referenced provisions herein, if the Planning Board determines that an alternative design serves a public benefit and contributes to an overall better site design. b. Any application for review and approval of a drive -thru facility shall also be subject to Site Plan Review under Section N.I. The Site Plan Review application shall be submitted concurrently with any Special Permit application. c. In granting approval of an application for a drive -thru facility, the Planning Board may attach conditions, limitations, and safeguards as deemed necessary. Such conditions, limitations, and safeguards shall be in writing and be part of such Special Permit approval. The Planning Board may attach the following conditions to the Special Permit approval: i. Conditions to provide a system of joint use driveways and cross access corridors with adjacent properties to facilitate access management, to prevent traffic safety hazards, and to maintain the level of service on adjacent roadways; 194 ii. Conditions to require additional stacking spaces based on a specific proposal; and iii. Conditions to allow the Planning Board to evaluate the facility up to one year of operation to determine that the conditions are sufficient to mitigate any adverse impacts. The failure to comply with this By -law and /or the terms of the permit may result in revocation of the permit issued hereunder. The Planning Board shall by first class mail send the owner written notification of any failure to comply with this By -law and /or the terms of the permit. If the owner believes that he is not in violation, he may request and will be granted an opportunity to attend a Planning Board meeting to try to resolve the alleged violation. If within 30 days from the date of mailing of said notice, the owner has not resolved the matter with the Planning Board, or remedied the alleged violation, it shall be grounds for revocation of the permit. At the expiration of the 30 day period, the Planning Board after a duly noticed public hearing, including notice to the owner by first class mail, may revoke the permit if it finds by a four -fifths vote that there has been a violation of this By -law and /or the terms of the permit and that the owner has failed to remedy it; alternatively, the Planning Board may continue the public hearing, or by a four -fifth vote extend the time period in which the violation may be corrected.

Approved by the Attorney General on December 20, 2011 ARTICLE 14 - HANDOUT (ENCLOSURE A) ARTICLE V SECTION 29 SEX OFFENDER BYLAW Purpose: It is the intent of this bylaw to serve the Town's compelling interest to promote, protect, and improve the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Framingham by creating areas around locations where children congregate in concentrated numbers wherein Classified Level 2 and 3 Sex Offenders are prohibited from loitering. After careful consideration, the Town finds that this bylaw is the most narrowly tailored means of limiting, to the fullest extent possible, the opportunity for these Sex Offenders to approach or otherwise come in contact with children in places where children would naturally congregate, and the protection of the health, safety and welfare of our children is a compelling interest. The purpose of this bylaw is to reduce the potential risk of harm to children by impacting the ability for Classified Level 2 and 3 Sex Offenders to be in contact with unsuspecting children in areas primarily designed for use by or primarily used by children. It provides an enforcement tool for our police officers to protect children from potential harm. 29.1 Definitions 29. 1.1 "Classified Level 2 or 3 Sex Offender" means a person who has been finally classified as a Level 2 or Level 3 Sex Offender by the Sex Offender Registry Board or its successor under M.G.L. c. 6 §§ 178C -178P inclusive and 803 C.M.R. §§ 1.13 or 1.22 -1.23, or their successor provisions as the same may be amended from time to time. 29.1.2 "Organized" means any activity including but not limited to summer camp, educational program or sporting event which is developed, overseen and administered by the Town of Framingham or a department or agency thereof, the Town of Framingham School Department or other legal entity under agreement with the Town of Framingham. 210 29.1.3 "Organized Youth Activity" means any organized activity involving one or more children under seventeen years of age and which activity is taking place on Property owned by the Town of Framingham. 29.1.4 "Property" means any building or real property in the Town of Framingham which is owned by the Town of Framingham and under the control of the Board of Selectmen or a department or agency of the Town of Framingham or the Town of Framingham School Department. 29.1.5 "Loiter" means remaining within 300 feet of the location in question for a period of ten minutes or more. 29.1.6 "Designated School Bus Stop" means a school bus stop designated by a public or private school by publication in a newspaper of general circulation in the Town or by posting at the site of the school bus stop. 29.1.7 "Safety Zone" means a school including school grounds, designated school bus stop, day care center, town park or recreational facility, facility for the elderly, Organized Youth Activity, and facility for the mentally impaired, or the area within three hundred feet of any of the above - listed places. 29.1.8 Unless otherwise provided herein and as applicable, terms used in this by -law have the same meaning as provided in M.G.L. c. 6 § 178C and 803 C.M.R. 1.03 or their successor provisions as the same may be amended from time to time. 29. 2 Prohibition It shall be unlawful for a Classified Level 2 or Level 3 Sex Offender to loiter at or within a Safety Zone. 29. 3 Enforcement 29.3.1 The Police Chief and duly sworn Police Officers shall be responsible for the enforcement of this bylaw. 29.3.2 If a police officer has reasonable suspicion to believe that a Classified Level 2 or Level 3 Sex Offender is within a Safety Zone as defined in Section 1, in violation of this bylaw, the officer shall verify the individual's name, address, and telephone number.

The state must reform the corrections, parole, sex offender classification, and sex offender registry systems to be more transparent, more responsive to the needs of law abiding citizens, and more helpful to local law enforcement. Sex offenders should be classified before they are even considered for release, and Level 3 sex offenders should be considered for "civil commitment" past their sentence length based on provisions in the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act. 2. The state must increase mandatory minimum sentences for offenses against children, sex offenders that re- offend, and for all offenders with multiple convictions. 248 3. The state must mandate that the Department of Correction be responsible for inmate rehabilitation and not count on private contractors to do rehabilitation after the inmate's release, mandate that no prisoner be paroled without said rehabilitation, ensure that no prisoner is released if a request for a dangerousness hearing has been made, and mandate that the chief law enforcement official of the municipality listed as an inmate's residence or likely residence be informed of the inmate's release if said inmate is a violent offender or has multiple convictions. 4. The state must stop releasing dangerous criminals before their sentences are complete absent demonstrable rehabilitation and build a new prison or expand existing prisons if necessary to relieve overcrowding. 5. The state must increase funding for the prisons and parole departments and develop a formula for adequate, stable funding in order to ensure that these reforms survive the vagaries of yearly budget debates.

Factors to Consider • The General Business District is our most permissive business district allowing 6 story structures, fast food drive -thru facilities and similar intensive uses. In B -2, the height limitation is 3 stories or 40 feet. 267 • The nonconforming uses in the residentially zoned portion of the properties have been in existence for several decades. Conditions of any existing variances on the site are in all likelihood limited in protecting the abutting residential properties. • In the B -2 District no individual establishment or building shall exceed 8,000 square feet in gross floor area per establishment or building without special permit approval. • In the B -2 District no individual establishment shall exceed50,000 square feet in gross floor area and no building shall exceed 60,000 square feet in gross floor area per. • For redevelopment project, the Planning Board requires Applicant's to make significant on -site improvements, including but not limited to, landscape buffers and screening, as well as off -site traffic improvements. • The proposed rezoning to B -2 would encourage uses that are more compatible with residential neighborhoods than the current General Business District. Land Use Policy Plan • Policy 3: Protect and enhance the character of the Town's business by establishing a hierarchy of business districts in the zoning bylaw with development standards appropriate to the differing roles played by the Town's commercial centers. • Policy 8: Improve the efficiency and environment of business areas by upgrading zoning standards to encourage concentrated rather than strip development, lessen traffic congestion, reduce the need for auto travel between activities, and avoid incompatible uses. • Policy 42: Encourage improved visual quality of commercial development. Community Meetings and Public Hearing • Community Meeting was held on September 20, 2011 with approximately 15 attendees. Notices were sent to every household on Lindbergh Street and Hampshire Road and to businesses and residences on Concord Street in the immediate vicinity of the properties to be rezoned. • Planning Board Public Hearing was held on October 6, 2011 at 7:45 in the Ablondi Room at the Memorial Building, 150 Concord Street. • The Planning Board Director met directly with the owners of the properties proposed to be rezoned. • Notice of the public hearing was sent to residents adjacent to the properties to be rezoned. Public Comment— Based on the October 6, 2011, Planning Board Public Hearing • A resident expressed his concern with the proposed layout of 7 Linburgh Street and suggested a lot line shift furter over to allow more of the lot to remain in the residential zone. 268 • Residents from Hampshire Road asked questions about the size of the required buffer zones, safty issues with increased traffic on roadways and 24 hour establishments coming to thae area. • Concern with the unknown possibilities of what kind of development could occur at this location. • Comments were also made in support of the proposed zoning amendment Recommendation • The Planning Board recommends that the properties in question be zoned from General Business (B) District and Single Family Residential (R -1) District to Community Business (B -2) District. • The Planning Board recommends that the B -2 District designation include the entire portion of these properties, and that the rear portion of the lots not be zoned R -1 District, except for a portion of 7 Lindbergh Road. These are relatively small parcels. On -site parking should be available to serve the commercial uses. • These properties have less opportunity for improvement, due to the current split zoning. The proposed B -2 District zoning would likely facilitate re- development of these parcels over time with neighborhood based services and provide needed increased tax revenues to the town. • Any future redevelopment of these properties under the B -2 would provide the opportunity for the Planning Board through the review process to require substantial site improvements such as, but not limited to: buffering and screening of parking areas and other business related operations from residential areas, as well as streetscape improvements, pedestrian improvements, and off -site traffic improvements. • Based on the public hearing, the Planning Board recommends a modification to the proposed zoning map amendment under Article 15, in order to retain a greater portion of the property at 7 Lindbergh Road in the R -1 District, as shown on the revised zoning map handout. 269 0 � Planning Board Members: Andrea Carr -Evans, Chair Susan P.
