Framingham Branch Updates 7.31

Dear Members,
 
In an effort to better serve you, we continue to work to enhance our customer service, facilities, and property and want to let you know about some big projects that are happening beginning this weekend:
 
Parking Lot Paving
  • We are also pleased to announce that we will begin repaving our parking lot beginning Tuesday, August 4th. When we are finished we will have a parking lot that is as beautiful as our newly renovated building. We are happy to let you know that speed bumps, which many of you have suggested over the years, are part of this project.
  • Access to parts of the parking lot will be limited during each phase (detailed below):
August 4 – 6
  • The pool side parking lot and the far side of the front parking lot will be repaved. Parking will be available in the front parking lot closer to the building and the Concord St side parking lot.
  • Grab and Go lunch pick up on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, as well as Produce Box pick up on Wednesday, will be in the front of the building.
August 12 -14
  • The remainder of the front parking lot as well as the side parking lot leading to the Early Learning Center (ELC) and Camp drop –off, will be repaved.
  • On these days, Camp and ELC drop off will be at the pool side parking lot. You will hear more details from Camp and ELC staff next week.
 
During both phases of the repaving, the entrance into our parking lot will be reduced to one lane. As we begin the project, there will be traffic detail assisting. Thank you in advance for your patience and care driving into the parking lot.
