Your Downtown | FDR Board Meetings
ANNOUNCING NEW PUBLIC MEETING TIMES Framingham Downtown Renaissance will continue to hold public meetings, but they will no longer be scheduled for every month. Due to the growing need for the Board to set aside time to focus on internal matters, public meetings will be offered every other month, starting this September.
We hope you will join us on the second Thursday of every other month in the Ablondi Room of the Memorial Building at 150 Concord Street from 8 to 9 AM. Come hear what we're up to, the progress we're making - and weigh in on issues and ventures important to you. Hope to see you here!
PUBLIC MEETINGS MONTHS AND DATES (always the second Thursday of the month in the Ablondi Room 8 - 9AM)
Through till the end of 2013
Beginning in 2014
