The Framingham Community Preservation Committee will hold a public hearing tonight, Monday, March 18, 7 pm at the Memorial Building and on Zoom “for the purpose of final review and vote of proposed projects for Fiscal Year 2024,” according to public hearing notice.

More than a dozen projects are still in the running for final funding, including several in Saxonville: accessible boardwalk construction on the Carol Getchell nature trail, stairway design for the trail, and the beginning of plans for the Saxonville Athenaeum and old firehouse preservation/reuse. You can see the full list of project applications on the city website.

“The total funds that could be committed in the FY24 funding round are projected to be approximately $4.832 million,” according to data published last October, although some may end up as “budgeted reserves.”

Mary Kate Feeney did a full rundown of projects seeking funding in The Ham’er newsletter available online.
