Live, Work, and Play for a Lifetime!

Only twenty minutes south of Indianapolis, Franklin is an exciting blend of tradition and innovation. Franklin has a rich history, dating back to its founding in 1823. Our downtown boasts traditional main street shops, coffeehouses and restaurants, and the outstanding academic institution of Franklin College. Victorian mansions line King and Jefferson streets, and our trails provide plenty of opportunities for a quiet walk or a scenic jog.

Franklin is also a city on the move. It is home to a state-of-the-art high school, a bustling night life, and nonprofit groups that work hard to advance our quality of life. Our pro-business attitude and strategic location have attracted companies globally, including seven Japanese corporations.

REMINDER!!!! Applications are due this Friday! Please nominate someone you know that gives so much of their time to our community!We are currently accepting applications for the 2019 Volunteer of the Year Award! The Volunteer of the Year Award is presented to individuals who have displayed outstanding volunteer service in the community within the last year. Award recipients will receive city-wide recognition for their extraordinary efforts, their name on a plaque which hangs in City Hall, and a certificate for their achievement. The winner will be announced at the State of the City Address in March at The Historic Artcraft Theatre.

This award was created to recognize the extensive hours that volunteers contribute to ensuring the continued success of our community. Often, these efforts are behind the scenes and go without recognition. The volunteer award was named after a Franklin couple, Marty and Carolyn Williams, for their exemplary commitment of time, energy and efforts to ensure our events run smoothly. Volunteers deserve an opportunity for us to express our gratitude and recognition for their service.

Please click the link below or visit Franklin.IN.Gov to download the form (located under News and Notices at the bottom of the Homepage). You can also pick up a hard copy at City Hall between the hours of 8-4. All nominations are due by February 22, 2019. THANK YOU for your service!

Countryview Mobile Home community needs the craters fixed bad. I'm really tired of dodging and still hitting deep holes.

WHEN WILL THE SIDE WALK - CURB PHASE BEGIN ON WEST JEFF,?

When are potholes in the mobile home park behind the hospital gonna get fixed. Delivery drivers for a pizza chain are having their tires popped from them and there is absolutely no way to avoid them with people parking on the side of the streets. And it seems the people running this place aren’t doing jack for it.

Cara, wanna go?

So 10 years from now they might be finished

Erin Davis

Is there anyway this could be live streamed on Facebook?
