The mission of Nobscot Neighbors is to promote, preserve, and advocate for Nobscot, a village within Framingham, Massachusetts, and improve its quality of life for residents, businesses, institutions, and visitors.

Welcome to Nobscot ...

...In the heart of northwest Framingham. The center of the community is Nobscot village, the area's commercial district at the intersection of Edgell Road and Water Street/Edmands Road. But Nobscot is so much more. From the serene farms to the west of the village to the imposing height of Nobscot Hill to the north, and the verdant pathways of the renowned Garden in The Woods to the east, Nobscot is a place of natural beauty as well as the home of numerous residents, businesses, and other institutions. Take a look around our web site and see everything Nobscot has to offer!

Nobscot Neighbors is a group of people, since our founding in 2008, united in our common interest in improving and promoting the Nobscot area of Framingham. We are residents, property owners, parents, business owners, and elected officials. In short, we are your Nobscot Neighbors!

Nobscot is part of the town of Framingham's Villages project. This is a planning and market analysis study focused on a strategic economic development plan for the village commercial center. The strategic economic development plan is focused on identifying actions that will lead to investment in both Nobscot and its neighboring North Framingham village of Saxonville. The study focuses on an area approximately one quarter mile from the main intersection of both village commercial centers.
