The Community and Economic Development Division undertakes a variety of planning, economic, and community development projects, all of which are focused on protecting and enhancing the quality of life for Framingham’s residents by improving residential neighborhoods, supporting our existing businesses, encouraging appropriate economic development, and promoting the Town as a desirable place in which to live, shop, work and invest.  The division coordinates with other Town Departments in order to address planning for economic and community development, transportation, open space, housing, historic preservation, and sustainability. 

The Division provides staff support to the:
  • Zoning Board of Appeals 
  • Historic District Commission
  • Economic Development Industrial Corporation (EDIC)

  • Staff Expertise

    Staff Planners, with a full spectrum of professional expertise and experience, manage a variety of projects and provide policy analyses requested by the Town Manager, Board of Selectmen, and other departments.  The Community and Economic Development Division has had significant success securing federal and state grants to support municipal services and infrastructure, as well as leverage appropriate new development.  The division provides administrative and professional support to the Zoning Board of Appeals, the EDIC, the Historic Districts Commission and the Historical Commission, and administers approximately one million dollars in federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Programs each year.
