Framingham: Overview

Framingham is categorized by MAPC as a Subregional Urban Center. These communities are characterized by an urban-scale downtown core surrounded by residential neighborhoods with a mix of housing. Many are home to sizeable immigrant, low-income, and minority communities. New growth takes the form of redevelopment in downtown or industrial areas, and greenfield development on the periphery.
