Development Initiatives

The Office of Economic Development's staff play a leading role in initiatives that support the economic vitality and cultural vibrancy of our community. Active and ongoing initiatives include but are not limited to the 2040 Comprehensive Plan, Delk/Franklin TOD Livable Centers Initiative (LCI), the 2013 General Obligation Bond (GO Bond) and targeted area Redevelopment. With the exception of the Comprehensive Plan, these initiatives focus on land use planning, blight removal, infrastructure development, and other strategies to attract new companies and development to the Franklin Gateway Corridor and adjacent areas.
