LETTER: Party On Brook Street Should Never Happen in Our Community

The party which took place on Brook Street Thursday night is something that should never happen in our community.

While the situation is under investigation and not all details have been released, it is clear that the event was unruly and dangerous and appears to be related to an automobile accident resulting in serious injuries to a Framingham Police Officer and several Framingham State students.   My heart goes out to those injured and their families.

It is deeply troubling that this is not the first incident involving the property and that the homeowner was not present and the property was rented for one night as a short-term rental.  I have reached out to Chairman Dennis Giombetti regarding this matter and he has agreed that the City Council needs to investigate this issue and determine next steps towards protecting our community from future incidents.

I welcome any input from Framingham residents regarding short term rentals and proposed rules to manage them in our community.

I understand that other communities have put in place measures to address these concerns and we will review those rules as we proceed with next steps.
