Membership in the Association, which was created in 2019, is $5 per person annually. The Association waived dues in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.
Membership in the Association shall be open to any individual, family, business or organization, that (a) subscribes to the purposes of the Association and (b) owns or leases property, or operates a business or organization in Framingham within a quarter of a mile of the neighborhoods for which the Association was incorporated.
