This session of the radio show shares the third and final Public Hearing held to gather input on the Town of Franklin Open Space & Recreation Plan (OSRP).

The hearing covered some of the details around the process: 

  • The draft has been issued for comment
  • Comments are open through July 12
  • Additional detail on the survey results are being formatted to add to the draft. This won't change the goals or objectives, just provide the additional supporting evidence for such.

The conversation runs about 70 minutes. Let’s listen to the OSRP Public Hearing #3
