This quad-community region is part of a larger regional area outside of Boston known as MetroWest, known for nurturing fast-growing high-technology companies.

Framingham is the largest of the three, with a population of 68,000. It’s the home of Framingham State University and a regional vocational-technical high school. Headquarters for several major corporations are found here, as well as a major regional retail center known as the Golden Triangle. Some 35 percent of the population is minority or Latino, including a large immigrant population from Brazil.

The Mass Pike splits the town in half. There is one commuter train stop in the center of the commercial district. Although it’s a densely populated town, there is a large state park and several other green spaces.

Marlborough, with a population of 38,000, is located along Interstate Route 495 and is home to a growing cluster of life sciences and biotech companies, as well as Marlboro Airport. The city hosts The New England Sports Center – a six rink ice skating and ice hockey facility – and a large shopping mall. There is a regional technical high school in town. The Sudbury Reservoir conservation area and several other green spaces can be found here. Marlborough has a minority and Latino population of about 17 percent.

Hudson, located just north of Marlborough and also along the I-495 corridor, is the smallest of the three communities with 19,063 residents as of the 2010 census. The town hosts several large office parks, a major semi-conductor manufacturing plant, and a 65-acre farm. Hudson has a growing Latino population, now representing about five percent of residents. Six miles of the Assabet River Rail Trail run through Hudson and Marlborough, and will eventually connect with a larger regional network.

Northborough joined MetroWest Moves in October 2014.
