Planning and design for the Franklin Blvd Transformation began January 2019 during a four-day design workshop. The workshop introduced the community to the project, collected public comment and input to guide draft designs, and concluded with the unveiling of an initial conceptual design. 


Following the workshop, three alternative designs were developed and presented at a second workshop May 2019. Copies of the three design options are available on the May 2019 Design Open House page. Following the May open house, project designs have been undergoing refinement and evaluation to create a preferred final design concept.
