“We have talked about producing a town brochure for years. With support from the town Planning Department and the MetroWest Visitors Bureau, we were able to make it a priority this summer,” says Nicole Fortier, Partnership president. 

The brochure will be distributed to Franklin Downtown Partnership members in September and October. Copies of the brochure have been included in the Dean College new student welcome packets, and local realtors plan to use the piece as a tool to help new residents get to know their surroundings. 

Wider distribution to all residences in Franklin, Wrentham, Millis, Medway, Norfolk and Bellingham will be on October 1 as an insert in each town’s newspaper. Copies also will be available at the October 5 Harvest Festival at the FDP information table.

This piece tells our residents and the surrounding communities that Franklin is open for business and has options galore,” says Lisa Piana, Downtown Partnership executive director.
