FRANKLIN — Residents on Tuesday saw several conceptual designs for the redevelopment of the former town hall, including detailed proposals with parks, caf├ęs, offices, retail shops and performance spaces.
More than 50 people attended the workshop on what exactly should happen to the less than 1-acre piece of land at 150 Emmons St., considered by town officials to be an "important gateway" to the downtown.
Hoping to come away with ideas that will drive their decisions for the space, Town Councilors also sat in on the nearly two-hour meeting.
