Hospital sweetens offer to Framingham, MA

Boston Globe, April 27, 2009
Newton-Wellesley Hospital has offered over the next five years to pay Framingham, MA, the full amount the town would lose in property taxes if the hospital gains approval for its plan to develop an outpatient screening and surgical facility. While the offer was enough for the Framingham Planning Board to begin drafting a decision regarding the project, not all of the board's members were satisfied. And in Newton, where the hospital is based, a spokesman for the city said that the change in payments would not alter Newton's approach to the hospital and whether it should provide more revenue to the city.
