Over 150 community members, stakeholders and volunteers engaged in the Franklin for a Lifetime workshop April 9-11, 2015. With support from the National Endowment for the Arts, UNH Cooperative Extension, Franklin, and Plan NH, we hosted a design workshop through the Citizens’ Institute on Rural Design™. Participants engaged in discussion about the future of Franklin, learned about aging and creating a community for all residents through national and state experts, and heard design recommendations from Plan NH.
