About Franklin For All

Franklin For All is a community-driven process to establish a vision for Franklin Center, including the Downtown Commercial District and adjacent neighborhoods, and make recommendations for rezoning the area to best achieve the vision.

The intent of this work is to unlock development that will expand housing choices, support local business, take advantage of new infrastructure, provide community benefits, and foster a vibrant mixed-use neighborhood. There will be multiple engagement opportunities for the public to weigh in on their vision for Franklin Center and the proposed approach to rezoning.
