The City of Franklin Department of Community Development is responsible for supporting the community and voluntary sectors in Human Resource Management. Specifically, developers facilitate the building of healthy, sustainable and empowered communities that are better equipped and skilled to tackle their local concerns and to relate positively with other communities.

Franklin's Main Street Program aims to make downtown viable and fun and is critical to the future of downtown revitalization efforts. Our Main Street Program has the vision of building on downtown's inherent assets such as its rich architecture, personal service, traditional values, and most of all, its great sense of place. Our annual Harvest Moon Festival and Black Bear Festival accentuate these core values and highlight the best of Franklin, La.
