As land use and transportation planners work to create useable options for a municipality or region, our firm builds communications bridges between these project teams and the community as a whole, including local organizations and elected officials. By fostering cooperation between these entities, positive ideas are generated and stakeholders are able to see their input making a difference in the planning process. Franklin’s team includes an AICP certified urban planner to offer a more comprehensive level of service to our clients.
