The mission of the Franklin Advisory Committee is to encourage and promote quality development that is aesthetically pleasing and financially beneficial to the community. The subjects of our meetings and discussions are primarily of a nature that is supportive of our mission. We discuss the permitting process development consistent with the Master Plan, zoning issues, the maintenance of public properties (and to some degree) private properties. The Committee also invites any other topics from the public.
As you can imagine, the above described subjects can, and often do, lead to a wide range of debate. At times, these debates go beyond our preview, but are worthy of discussion. This is particularly true if a subject has merit, as there are a number of well run and responsive departments in the Town to address those subjects. Issues that put Franklin at a disadvantage is the responsibility of all to improve.
