DBJ 728x90Thank you for your interest in the City of Franklin, Ohio! We invite you and your team to explore the vibrant opportunities available in the City of Franklin, Ohio. We are committed to supporting business growth and development. The City has invested $13.4 million dollars in our historic downtown by updating aging infrastructure and creating a pleasant environment with our Main Street Streetscape project, which will be finalized in November 2024. 

Franklin 4th Street - CopyThe Streetscape Project enables a $47 million transformative waterfront development project along the Great Miami River. We are eagerly awaiting the decision of our $25 million RAISE grant application through the U.S. Department of Transportation. Engineering on the Riverfront is complete and RAISE award announcements are expected this summer.

We would be delighted to offer a personal showcase of the potential that Franklin holds for your business. We believe that collaboration between local businesses and the community is key to fostering a mutually beneficial and thriving economic environment. Our downtown has opportunities to revitalize historic buildings and space for new construction.

We are here to support your growth and success in the City of Franklin. Please contact Jonathan Westendorf, City Manager, or Karisa Steed, Assistant City Manager, to discuss next steps and explore our exciting possibilities together. We can be reached via phone, or email.
