WHAT’S UP WITH THAT: Facebook Live series for Sept. 18-24

What’s up, Franklin?

Franklin Home Page has a segment where local reporter, Brooke Wanser, discusses the last week’s headlines and upcoming news via Facebook Live.

We hope to hear from you while we are live. We encourage you to ask questions about the issues we are discussing and let us know what you want us to investigate.

If you can’t tune in while we are live, be sure to check it out later in the day. With the weekly Facebook Live, Home Page Media Group is aiming to give you the news in an interesting and accessible new format.

As a preview, this is a roundup of headlines you will hear about.


  • Harpeth Square project to move forward this fall: After months in purgatory, developer Roderick Heller announces that his downtown Franklin project, which will include a boutique hotel and luxury apartments, is underway. Site leveling will begin this month and construction of the parking garage will begin in November.
  • Board of Mayor and Aldermen vote to widen Columbia Avenue to five lanes: The method in which Columbia Avenue will be expanded continues to be a source of grief for aldermen, who expressed a desire to improve safety while seeking to maintain the satisfaction of business owners along the corridor. The motion to select the corridor design concept for Columbia Avenue passed, with five aldermen voting for a five-lane, limited access option; three voted “no.”


  • Pilgrimage festival coverage
  • Franklin will host the first-ever U.S. Music Tourism Convention on Sept. 21-22.
  • Franklin Transit Authority will meet and report on the rise in vanpooling and larger numbers of transit riders.
