Franklin asks public for input on housing analysis
The city of Franklin will kick off a housing analysis tomorrow with nine meetings set over two days.
The city of Franklin has chosen a consultant to perform a housing needs analysis and prepare a housing plan to assist decision makers, stakeholders, and citizens with understanding key housing issues in the area.
BBC Research and Consulting Company will be in Franklin on Jan. 8-9 for a series of meetings. All meetings are open to the public, but the key meeting for public to attend and give feedback is scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 9 at 6 p.m. at City Hall in the boardroom.
Staff from BBC will provide a measured assessment of present and future unmet housing demand focusing on short-to-mid-term housing demand over the next five, 10, and 15 years. The final report from the consulting company will offer community leaders and stakeholders a basis for formulating specific housing priorities as they relate to a healthy community, policy alternatives and related strategies.
