City of Franklin to host open house for Zone Franklin on Aug. 15

As part of its ongoing Zone Franklin project, the city of Franklin will host its next series of open house events to get feedback on a new zoning plan for the city.

Residents may recall Planapalooza, a community event held by the city earlier this year to get resident feedback on what the city might include in a new zoning ordinance to follow in accordance with its long-range plan, Envision Franklin.

A draft of the zoning plan created with resident feedback was released earlier this summer and features sections on zoning districts, open space requirements, parking and transit, building types and more.

For those wanting to learn more about the draft ordinance and how it may affect them, the city is hosting a public open house Aug. 15 from 5 to 8 p.m. at Franklin City Hall, 109 Third Ave. S., Franklin.

The city is expected to vote on the adoption of the new ordinance in spring 2020.

In addition to the open house Aug. 15, the city will also hold "office hours" Aug. 16 and Sept. 20 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the city's Planning and Sustainability Department for residents to stop by, ask questions and learn more about the new ordinance.
