Design Concepts | ENVISION FRANKLIN 47 INDUSTRIAL FLEX “...PROVIDES LOCATIONS FOR INSTITUTIONAL, LIGHT INDUSTRY, OFFICE, AND RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT USES, WITH SUPPORTING LOCAL COMMERCIAL USES.” The Industrial Flex design concept provides locations for institutional, light industry, office, and research and development uses, with supporting local commercial uses. Industrial Flex development is characterized by low-scale buildings, some of which may have large footprints. Some of these areas generate less vehicular traffic than regional commerce areas and may be found along more minor thoroughfares. Conversely, some of these uses involve extensive exterior movement of goods and trucks that require measures to control adverse environmental and visual impacts. The areas and uses within this design concept should be protected to support a diversified economy. However, heavy industrial uses are not encouraged.
