Cultural District Meeting - 7:00 p.m. on May 18th at Franklin TV

Cultural District Planning Meeting at Franklin TV

All: Please mark your calendars for a very important and hopefully interesting meeting. The Town is making good progress in its efforts to create a cultural district in the Downtown area. 

On May 18th Franklin TV will host our next meeting at their studios at 23 Hutchinson Street. Franklin TV/Franklin Radio (Franklin Community Cable Access) has signed on as one of our Partners working to create, manage and enhance the cultural district. 

The main topic of discussion on May 18th is our Cultural District Marketing Plan, which is a cultural district application requirement. Steve Sherlock will provide an overview on the status of our Cultural District Web Site, Cultural Events Calendar, and Social Media. 

We'll also be discussing a possible Cultural Asset Catalog (or on-line listing), an on-line "Story Map" of the cultural district, collaborative marketing efforts, and Cultural District Branding and Signage. In addition to fairly short presentations, we'll all have opportunity to provide input. 

Please bring your ideas/suggestions. It is important for all of our partners to provide input into the required Marketing Plan and related issues. I hope we have a full house at Franklin TV.

Going forward. Please mark your calendars for our June meeting, which will be held at 7:00 p.m. on June 15th at Dean College in the Campanella Board Room. We'll be discussing the cultural district application submittal and related required Town Council actions. As with the May meeting, it's extremely important that representatives from all our Partners attend.

Also, attached for your review is a map of the proposed Franklin Cultural District, which was recently submitted to the State for their review.
