Franklin seeks grants for renovations, flood recovery

The city of Franklin has applied for a statewide grant that would help cover $13.9 million in projects, including redeveloping flooded properties, adding more trails and remodeling a vacant downtown building.

Officials will find out by the end of this week if the city is still in the running for the Stellar Communities program, which provides

millions in grant funding to two communities each year for development projects.

The city has outlined nine projects, including building a downtown market plaza, creating a technology center and small business space on East Jefferson Street, adding new trails, finishing road and sidewalk projects and promoting home ownership.
