The city of Franklin Planning and Sustainability Department will host a series of meetings for residents to provide input about the city should grow.

The Franklin Urban Growth Boundary, more commonly known as the UGB, determines areas around the city that may be annexed in the future as the population grows. Over the past few years, the city has voluntarily annexed several parcels of land in previously unincorporated parts to the county.

Staff is working to update the boundaries in 2022 and working now to gather feedback from residents, according to the city. Staff is recommending some areas be added to the boundaries, and some to be removed.

Meetings will be held based on geographic location.

Sept. 21 at 5:30 p.m.: Southwest basis 1-4

Sept. 21 at 7 p.m.: Mayes Creek

Sept. 22 at 5:30 p.m.: Goose Creek

Sept. 22 at 7 p.m.: all other areas

Meetings will be held at City Hall, located at 109 Third Ave. S., Franklin, and residents can also attend virtually via Zoom.
