Envision Franklin

100 ENVISION FRANKLIN | Design Concepts SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS Columbia Pike, South of Mack Hatcher Parkway This scenic corridor should have deep setbacks of at least 250 feet for new development. Informal landscape design and rural features, such as stone walls, wood plank fencing, and informal tree plantings, should be utilized to sustain the scenic and rural quality of the area. Lewisburg Pike, between Henpeck Lane and Bowman Road Newly developed lots along Lewisburg Pike shall be comparable in size and width to those in existing neighborhoods on the opposite side of Lewisburg Pike. Murfreesboro Road Inside of Mack Hatcher Parkway This corridor is an important gateway into Downtown Franklin. The presence of open space, in the form of larger lots and building setbacks, contributes to its character. Infill development that occurs along the corridor should reflect the existing character and setbacks. If development occurs on the Green Farm on the south side of Murfreesboro Road, then Ralston and Welsh Lanes should be extended. Welsh Lane should be a single-loaded street with dwellings facing Murfreesboro Road with primary access to the extension of Ralston Lane. Murfreesboro Road should have 150-foot open-space setbacks to maintain the viewshed into Downtown Franklin. Charlton Green should be used as an example for desirable site design and usable open space. Hillsboro Road, Inside of Mack Hatcher Parkway This area is an important gateway and corridor into Downtown Franklin. The presence of open space, in the form of larger lots and building setbacks, contributes to the character of this area. Any infill that occurs along the corridor should reflect the existing character and setbacks. Established single-family residential uses should be preserved, and commercial intrusion is discouraged. Institutional Uses Institutional uses may be appropriate if the location does not negatively impact access, scale, and traffic of the surrounding area. These uses are encouraged to be located at major intersections of arterial and collector streets. Additional stories may be appropriate for institutional uses. The conversion of dwellings in existing residential areas for institutional uses is not appropriate. SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL
