Most Promising Downtown Development: City of Franklin
March 14, 2018
With 45 affordable housing units available in the newly renovated, former Franklin Light and Power Mill and improved branding of Mill City Park, a whitewater rafting park, the City of Franklin is undergoing a transformation. At the helm are Todd Workman and Marty Parichand – two individuals who have spent much of their personal time, financial investment and good ol’ Yankee spirit to revitalize Franklin, attracting tourists and millennials. PermaCityLife, a nonprofit founded by Workman with a relationship to Colby Sawyer College, assists with furthering along Franklin’s potential.
