What We Do

The Community and Economic Development Division promotes the City's economic development and enhances the quality of life for Framingham residents.

To advance these objectives, the division undertakes a variety of planning, economic, and community development projects, in support of the city's master plan. These projects support the decision-making and actions requested by the Mayor, City Council, and other departments. Ultimately, the division's work:

  • Improves residential neighborhoods
  • Supports our existing businesses
  • Encourages appropriate economic development
  • Promotes Framingham as a desirable place to live, shop, work and invest

The division works closely with other city divisions and stakeholders to ensure comprehensive approaches to community and economic development. The division pursues and administers federal and state grants to advance city objectives.
