When: Thursday February 16, 2017, 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.
Where: Franklin Municipal Building, 355 East Central Street, Room 205
The Town of Franklin's Department of Planning and Community Development invites you to attend a meeting at 7:00 p.m. on February 16, 2017 to continue planning for a state designated Cultural District in Downtown Franklin. Input and ongoing involvement of all Franklin organizations and individuals is desired. Our meeting will focus on the following issues:
Cultural District Boundaries (Map).
Franklin Cultural District Partnership (Development; Requirements).
Prior to submitting an application to the State for Cultural District recognition, Franklin must form a cultural district partnership. Keep in mind the Franklin Cultural District Partnership must be comprised of a diverse mix of organizations that represent the interests of the district.
The success of the proposed Franklin Cultural District will depend upon development of a strong partnership consisting of cultural organizations, historical and community organizations, non-profits, private businesses, government agencies, educational and faith based institutions, and individual artists.
The majority of organizations in the partnership must be located in the district. Cultural organizations located outside the geographic boundaries of the district may be involved in the partnership but must provide programming on a regular basis within the district's boundaries.
Interested in Partnering with the Town and other organizations and individuals to form a strong partnership? If so, please take the time to complete the attached form (or send an email or letter) and return to the Town's Department of Planning and Community Development. Also attached is a spreadsheet containing contact information of individuals that attended the January 19th planning meeting.
Please let me know if you have questions or need additional information. I look forward to seeing you on Thursday.
