During its Aug. 11 meeting, the Franklin Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved 7-1 a mural to be painted on the site of the former Judge Beans restaurant at 509 Hillsboro Road, Franklin.
The project will be privately funded by Urgent Team, an urgent care clinic now located on the site, according to application paperwork submitted to the city.
The postcard-style mural will read "Greetings from Franklin," with each letter representing a historic highlight from the city.

The mural will be painted by artist Michael Cooper of Murals & More LLC, who is a resident of Franklin and has completed murals in downtown Nashville, Lebabnon and more cities nearby.
The mural will take an estimated two weeks to complete, according to the project application. A completion date for the mural has not been announced.
