Stair repair!

May 22nd, 2007


People may be interested to know that last week at town meeting repair for the steps in front of the Memorial building was approved.  I can’t remember exactly when I noticed the cones appearing but I think it’s been at least a year, maybe more.  They are one of those things I always meant to inquire about but ended up forgetting so when it was brought up at town meeting, it was great to find out what the deal was. entropay

People at my work who have gone through downtown have asked me “What’s up with all those cones on the stairs?” so it’ll be nice to have something so visible and a landmark downtown that isn’t crumbling and has caution cones all over the place.  Maybe I’ll even put on my converse all stars and run to the top! ??? ?????

  1. Yes, the Memorial Building as such an obvious symbol of our town shouldn’t be seen so obviously in ill health. What better way to advertise to all passersby what state of “disrepair” the town is in than to welcome all to a slalom of glaringly orange cones (Caution! Enter at your own risk).
    And the fact that it’s been perhaps a year or more like this is telling of how Framingham can so often be lulled into sleeping at the switch.
    Now about Memorial Park, or that gas station in Nobscot, or….

  2. Hrmph. The phrase here is ‘deferred maintenance’. One of the most misused practices ever.

  10. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  13. My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your post’s
    to be precisely what I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content for yourself?
    I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on many of
    the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome weblog!

  14. I do trust all of the ideas you’ve presented in your post.
    They’re very convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are
    too short for novices. May just you please
    prolong them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
