Franklin residents who live along a major road into downtown set for reconstruction next year may be able to get a tree planted in a different spot in their yard or have a new parking space on the street, but they’ll have to ask.

After upset home and business owners raised concerns about the first half of the project on North Main Street, city officials and engineers were glad to listen to questions, concerns and requests in the first of several planned meetings and updates.

Franklin officials have learned their lesson after the first phase of construction, which was completed this month after a year of road work. During that time residents and business owners were upset about trees being cut down, confused about when streets were being closed, questioned why only half of Madison Street was upgraded and weary of traveling over and around streets that were torn up for months at time.
