This is very important week for Franklin.
The week starts with the Franklin For All Forum Monday night, the discussion on what changes if any should be made to downtown gets into full gear. MAPC has been conducting some focus group meetings with key stakeholders. The results of those discussions remain to be seen. Monday is touted to be a review of the current zoning and building downtown to get us to where we are. Meeting info -> https://www.franklinma.gov/home/events/373166
Tuesday, at the scheduled School Committee meeting, the community gets to hear the Superintendent’s recommended school budget for the FY 2023 fiscal year. The docs were released in advance for review. Meeting agenda -> https://www.franklinps.net/sites/g/files/vyhlif4431/f/agendas/scagenda_3-8-22.pdf
Wednesday, the community can listen to the DPW update for the Finance Committee. Apparently, within the details of the presentation are the rationale for implementing the talked of “storm water utility fee”.

Thursday, the Joint Budget Committee, formally charged now with fostering discussion among the Town Council, Finance Committee, and School Committee gets to see the first release of the FY 2023 Town of Franklin budget. The numbers are still preliminary at this point but the ballpark should be good enough for a discussion on how to address the multiple priorities the Town (and Schools) face. Agenda not yet released (should be sometime Tuesday) https://www.franklinma.gov/joint-budget-subcommittee/events/372166
The meetings are open for in person or remote participation, check the Town Calendar, School Calendar, or Franklin Matters for agenda documents.
