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.

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.
