The League of Women Voters and Venture Local Franklin will host the initial Community Town Hall Discussion Series on Monday, March 31, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Tartan Hall. The goal of this first discussion is to bring together ideas concerning the design and use of the gazebo property.
Organizers hope to have elected officials, designers, businesses, local groups, citizens, performers and any other stakeholders in attendance.
From 6 to 6:30 p.m., attendees will have the opportunity to peruse designs and speak with any designers or elected officials who may be present.
At 6:30 p.m., the meeting will progress to a moderated session. This is a time for designers, businesses, groups, and individuals to address everyone with ideas or concerns.
Forms will be available for anyone to offer written input which will be presented to the Franklin Board of Aldermen at its April meeting.
The purpose of the meeting is to foster an environment of collaboration and cooperation where ideas can be exchanged and improved.
