Envision Franklin

Process and Outreach | ENVISION FRANKLIN 115 ONLINE FORUM AND SOCIAL MEDIA Citizens who do not typically attend or voice opinions at traditional public meetings were able to provide input on planning issues at various times during the development of the Plan. This ongoing dialogue helped guide specific recommendations found in the plan. In conjunction with the community engagement component of Connect Franklin, the City hosted an online discussion forum using the MindMixer platform to identify transportation issues, as well as growth and development concerns. As the draft Plan was developed, Facebook was used to solicit input regarding specific development and design recommendations. Using Facebook as a public participation outlet, approximately 45,000 people and businesses were reached. FACEBOOK RESPONSE: “BEAUTIFUL! LOOKS LIKE A COMMUNITYORIENTED, FAMILYFRIENDLY DESIGN. WOULD LOVE TO SEE A NEIGHBORHOOD LIKE THIS WALKING DISTANCE TO DOWNTOWN FRANKLIN.” Facebook Post: Hey Franklin, Do you like this place? Why or Why Not? #EnvisionFranklin
