To help your reading of the hazard mitigation plan, I have in my own reading captured some interesting tidbits. What do you find?
Other interesting bits (and where found):
- "Notably, 25% of Franklin’s population lives alone, and 50% of those living alone are over 65 years old." (p13)
- "Franklin relies on local groundwater sources for all of its public water supply" (p13)
- "Although Franklin is not a coastal community, information on sea level rise is included as an important trend that has implications for the regional economy, and considering that Franklin is on the MBTA Commuter Rail line, and a number of local residents commute to jobs in Boston." (p25)
- "Flooding was the most prevalent natural hazard identified by local officials in Franklin" (p30)
- that 27.2% is residential?
- that 10.6% is wetland?
- that only 5.3% is classified as industrial/commercial
