Thank you for participating in the process so far! We received great input at the May 2019 Public Visioning Workshop and on the public survey. The City has completed a draft plan for review before it is submitted to the state.
Development and preservation of open space and recreation facilities - whether natural conservation lands or active or passive recreation - is critical to maintaining a high quality of life in Framingham and respecting and preserving the natural systems of our community. See the links below to view our current Draft OSRP for 2020 as well as our current active plan (2013 OSRP).
Though the kick off for this plan was spring 2019 we were delayed somewhat by the pandemic. We are on track to submit our draft report to the state.
We are seeking public comments on the draft plan until November 30, 2020. You can share your thoughts either:
The Community and Economic Development (CED) Division worked with the City's Open Space and Recreation Implementation Working Group (OSRIWG) to prepare the 2013 Open Space and Recreation Plan.
The Working Group is comprised of representatives from the Department of Public Works, Conservation Commission, Parks and Recreation, Planning Board, Board of Selectmen and Community and Economic Development.
The OSRIWG works aggressively on accomplishing tasks and projects outlined in the OSRP Action Plan (PDF), including the protection of key parcels throughout the City.
