This internet radio show or podcast is number 190 in the series for Franklin Matters.

This recording shares Economic Development SubCommittee meeting held on Wednesday, January 8, 2020 in the 3rd Floor Training Room at the Municipal Building at 5:45 PM. (It was listed to start at 5:30 and I covered the Board of Health meeting which finished at 5:40 so I expected to get to this one late. However, I was able to get there just for the start.)
1. Zoning Amendment proposal:
a. Ground Mounted Solar Bylaw Amendments in residential Zoning Districts;
b. A house cleaning items in Mixed Business Innovation (MBI) district; and .
