Lot upgrades planned for farmers market

Franklin will spend $11,600 in tax dollars for some upgrades to the parking lot where the city hosts weekly farmers markets.

The Franklin Redevelopment Commission approved spending the money for maintenance work at the former Oren Wright lot at Jackson and Jefferson streets, which is now a public parking lot. Discover Downtown Franklin hosts markets on Saturdays in the lot throughout the summer, with the first event planned for May 10.

The money is coming from tax funds from the city’s tax-increment financing districts, which set aside some taxes collected from businesses for infrastructure and economic development.
