Local community group Franklin Tomorrow will begin its annual On The Table events Nov. 5 during its quarterly Breakfast with the Mayors event. The community engagement initiative aims to connect residents and members of the community through conversations held at various locations in Franklin throughout the week.

Events are open to those who live, work and play in Franklin, according to Executive Director Mindy Tate. Last year's event had about 1,000 participants, according to Franklin Tomorrow. The top issues identified by participants ranged from transportation and greenspace to housing and development, according to the group's 2018 report following the event.
