More parking, new city hall: Franklin approves updated Capital Investment Program

Franklin officials have approved the city’s updated capital investment program, prioritizing projects such as the Long Lane and Peytonsville Road connector, a new parking lot on 5th Avenue North and a new city hall.

The Board of Mayor and Aldermen voted 6-2 on Tuesday, Aug. 13 to authorize the list. Alderpersons Clyde Barnhill and Ann Petersen voted against the measure, seeking more time to order the list and prioritize certain projects.

“With all due respect, the perfect is the enemy of the good,” Alderperson Dana McClendon said. “We will never have a capital improvements plan that contemplates, plans for and accommodates every single project or moment of opportunity that comes up.”

The board operates on a 10-year plan and updates it every two years, according to board comments during the meeting. About $711 million worth of projects are on the list, which is reproduced below.

City officials have not announced exact timetables for individual projects.
