Franklin, IN

Comprehensive Plan

With a number of projects and initiatives accomplished, the City of Franklin sought to capitalize on these “success stories” by updating its comprehensive plan. HWC partnered with SDG to facilitate this planning process which centered on goals for future development within the city and strengthening efforts at downtown revitalization. Major ideas identified during the plan included a renewed focus on neighborhood revitalization, an emphasis on improving aging infrastructure, continued reinvestment in downtown redevelopment, and encouraging a variety of housing options. The plan would ultimately lead to the development of the Interstate 65 gateway along the King Street corridor and a commitment to developing two new hotels near the Interstate 65 interchange.
