68 ENVISION FRANKLIN | Design Concepts The Neighborhood Commercial design concept contains a mix of active uses at key intersections that serve surrounding residential concentrations. These centers must be compatible with and contribute to neighborhood character and livability. These centers should be defined by building frontages and an activated street, and not by parking lots. They should be pedestrian-friendly places with high-quality architecture, plazas, outdoor dining, sidewalks, and other pedestrian and bicycle amenities that create active, connected gathering places. NEIGHBORHOOD COMMERCIAL “THESE CENTERS MUST BE COMPATIBLE WITH AND CONTRIBUTE TO NEIGHBORHOOD CHARACTER AND LIVABILITY.”
