This internet radio show or podcast is number 165 in the series for Franklin Matters.
This recording shares the Economic Development Subcommittee meeting held on June 12, 2019.
The notes from the meeting along with the agenda and reference documents are linked to in these show notes.
After a brief update on three grants in process, the main portion of the meeting was the discussion with the Franklin High School students bringing the proposal to ban plastic bags back to the process. They have learned from their predecessors and are more prepared this time around.
Without further ado, here is the audio recording (approx 50 minutes).

This podcast is my public service effort for Franklin but I can't do it alone. I can always use your help.
How can you help?
In particular, if you have an interest in real estate, zoning, or construction, I would like someone to help us by following the Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals, and or the Conservation Commission meetings. I’ll provide the guidance on note taking and sharing. You need to bring an inquisitive, open mind, and willingness to learn and share.
