FM #922 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 922 in the series.
This session of the radio show shares the audio recording of my conversation with Joel D’Errico, Melanie Hamblen and Cobi Frongillo. Joel, Melanie and I were in the Franklin TV Studio on Wednesday, January 18, 2023. Cobi joined us for almost all of the discussion via phone.
Consider this a continuation of the downtown zoning discussion from the “Franklin For All” project which is underway with review and discussion at the Economic Development Subcommittee Plus that Melanie Chairs and for which Cobi is Vice-Chair.
We were joined by Joel for this session to include his insights as a lifelong Franklinite, a property owner, and a former Town Councilor.
The recording of our conversation on zoning runs about 56 minutes. Let’s listen in.Audio recording -> https://franklin-ma-matters.captivate.fm/episode/fm-922-town-of-franklin-downtown-zoning-discussion-01-18-23
