Franklin developed its action plan with the goal of recognizing the city's aging population and being age-friendly to everyone in the community. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, Franklin has experienced continued growth and development for people of all ages and would like to continue as a community of choice for older adults. Franklin's plan focuses on helping residents age in place, working to improve the city's transportation network, expanding recreational opportunities and providing new housing options for residents.
