The FDP -- Who We Are

With the recent creation of the #shopFranklin Facebook group, many people have been asking who the Franklin Downtown Partnership is and what we do. Here's a short explanation, taken from the About Us section of this website. 

Franklin Downtown Partnership, Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization operated “exclusively” for charitable and education purposes. The Partnership sees Franklin’s downtown as the heart of the community: a center of civic and cultural activities, government services, commercial businesses, and diversified housing. All of the Partnership’s activities are designed to foster greater vitality in the downtown commercial district and to serve as a vehicle for public policy discourse.
  • To stimulate economic development in downtown in order to create a positive impact throughout the area
  • To be a pro-active organization that brings residents, business owners and community leaders together, encourages cooperation and builds leadership for the purpose of revitalizing downtown Franklin
  • Have a Voice
  • Serve as a Resource
  • Stay Financially Sound and Healthy 

Please find out more about us by perusing this website, finding us on Facebook (, following us on Twitter (@FranklinDowntwn), or join us at our next General Meeting on Thursday, April 2.
