Franklin Tomorrow, Williamson County Association of Realtors join forces on telephone survey to gain insight
Franklin Tomorrow and the Williamson County Association of Realtors have joined forces to sponsor a local telephone survey to conducted in the upcoming weeks by a national research firm.
Through a grant from the National Association of Realtors, the two organizations will explore the results of the 2011 Franklin Tomorrow visioning process as well as gather data on home ownership and housing trends.
“Since the outcomes of the yearlong vision process were revealed earlier this year, Franklin Tomorrow has been exploring and developing ways to further analyze the results as it relates to what the citizens of Franklin truly mean when they identified certain strategies as important to the future of our city,” said Kathie Moore, President of Franklin Tomorrow.
“Our first step was to create three Project Teams — Business & Development, Transportation & Community Character, and Environment & Recreation — which encapsulated the top strategies from almost each of the nine areas in which Franklin Tomorrow works,” Moore said. “This partnership with WCAR to delve deeper into the citizens’ wishes is another step in our mission of engaging the community, fostering collaboration, and advocating for a shared vision for the future of Franklin.”
The survey will be conducted by MWR, a national public opinion research firm, that will contact approximately 400 Franklin residents through a random-sampling process, according to Allison King, Government Affairs and Communications Director for the Williamson County Association of Realtors.
The survey is expected to take approximately 12 minutes to complete, King said, and will provide valuable information for both organizations. The information gathered will be shared with City of Franklin officials and the public.
