The City of Franklin’s current Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan: 2025 (CORP) was adopted by the Common Council on April 4, 2011, as an element of the City’s Comprehensive Master Plan. 


In regard to updates and modifications, the CORP states that “…a plan could be modified, if need be, to meet changing conditions or to correct errors.” It further states “Modification of an adopted Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan should not be done without careful study and valid reasons.” It concludes that “A significant update to this Plan every five years, therefore, may be a sufficient response to changing conditions or public attitudes.”

Franklin Launches Projects for Three
Major Development Areas

FRANKLIN, Wisconsin (November 7, 2014) – The Franklin Common Council approved multiple contracts at their Tuesday, 11/4/2014,  meeting aimed to spur economic growth in three major development areas. The areas, comprised of nearly 1,200 acres, will receive detailed study and have the potential to generate an estimated $328M in new and rejuvenated development.

To complement its very successful business park along Hwy 100, the City plans a Business Park near 27th and County Line Road over-looking I94. Additionally, new and re-developed retail and commercial growth in the area centered at Rawson Avenue and 76th Street is envisioned to include more shops and restaurants. Rounding out the new development opportunities will be the first “traditional neighborhood” at Loomis Road and Ryan Road, which will feature a mix of residential, light industrial, and recreational development. “We’re excited to offer residents something unique and highly desirable where home, work, play, and shopping can be within reasonable reach. This will enhance Franklin’s identity and attract young professionals for a vibrant community,” said Franklin Mayor Steve Olson.  Click here for complete press release.
