Franklin approves prioritized list of capital projects
Franklin officials approved the city’s updated capital investment program Aug. 13, prioritizing transportation projects such as the Long Lane and Peytonsville Road connector and improvements to intersections.

The board operates on a 10-year plan and updates it every two years, according to the city. Projects adding up to about $711 million are on the list.

The Board of Mayor and Aldermen voted 6-2 to authorize the list. Some officials argued for more time to prioritize the list; however, Alderperson Dana McClendon said it was not meant to be final.

“We will never have a capital improvements plan that contemplates, plans for and accommodates every single project or moment of opportunity that comes up,” McClendon said.
