All applicants are encouraged to start at Stage One with a preliminary meeting which allows the applicant and the City to have a conversation about the possible site development and the specifics of the permitting process. Stage One allows Framingham to inform the applicant about possible financial resources to assist with project development. There are no obligations from either side as a result of this meeting; it is strictly informational.
To start Stage One, an applicant will need to fill out the Meeting Request Form or contact the Planning Board Office to schedule a meeting with the Director of Community & Economic Development, the Planning Board Administrator, and/or the Building Commissioner.
What the applicant can expect from the Preliminary Meeting
Applicants are not expected to have site plans or official application submittal materials at a stage one meeting but are encouraged to bring whatever preliminary documents are available.
