Franklin County’s Office of Economic Development is working with the community to develop an Economic Development Strategic Plan. The Plan will identify short and long-range recommendations to promote balanced growth, enhance quality of life for residents, and enrich the future marketability of Franklin County as a place to live, visit, and invest in.

As a part of this effort there will be a community input session held to summarize findings of the initial strategic assessment and garner input from the community about future needs in business, housing, employment, etc.

This presentation style meeting will be held at the Pigg River Community Center at 2410 South Main Street, Rocky Mount, VA on Tuesday, April 4th at 6:00pm.
