Burkis Square Betterment Project

  • 85 Hollis Street Framingham, MA, 01702 United States (map)

Downtown Framingham, Inc. is teaming up with JS Protective Services Inc. of Worcester to provide outreach and security services to our downtown business owners in Burkis Square, many of whom are women of color. We only need 100 donors to chip in $250.00 each to make our mixed-use area extra welcoming and vibrant this summer for our children, local residents, and shop keepers.

Our outreach and security detail will greet downtown patrons, hand out shopping maps, and help our most deserving (and sometimes overlooked) shopkeepers feel extra comfortable so they can focus solely on making customers happy!

Not convinced? A few stats from 2018:

- 146 ambulance calls were placed to the Hollis/Irving streets intersection

- 189 police calls were placed to the Hollis / Irving streets intersection

- 87% of small businesses in the Central Business District located south of Route 135 stated that their own clients were often too afraid to come to their stores

This investment can deliver a dramatic change to our area!
