The Franklin Boulevard Business Association (FBBA) is a collaborative effort of property and business owners, located in both the City and County of Sacramento. We're primarily focused along Franklin Boulevard from Broadway to Turnbridge, as well as portions of Fruitridge and 24th Street. We focus on providing excellent maintenance and safety services; advocating for business-friendly public policies; enhancing public spaces; and promoting and marketing the area’s culturally diverse businesses, in particular, its Latino and Hmong cultures. FBBA facilitates positive business and economic development in the District while fostering partnerships with businesses, neighborhoods, community-based organizations, and government agencies.
FBBA is a not-for-profit tax-exempt 501(c)6 corporation formed in 1985 by business owners and other stakeholders to make a great neighborhood even better – better for business and property owners, our residents, and for visitors. Today, the Association includes both a Business Improvement Area (BIA) and a Property-Based Business Improvement District (PBID). The BIA consists of approximately 7,000 employees, 600 business owners and the PBID consists of approximately 153 commercial property owners on Franklin Boulevard between Sutterville Road and 47th Avenue.
Franklin Neighborhood Development Corporation (FNDC) is our economic engine to help build equitable neighborhoods and business district. We are in the midst of shaping the future of the Franklin District. This is Sacramento’s Hispanic/Latino business corridor and a working-class neighborhood that has historically been a “port of entry” for Hispanic/Latinos and other immigrants, but divided between the City and County of Sacramento with a history of disinvestment and disadvantage.
New public and private investments have the potential to bring both benefits and positive impacts to the Franklin District. Complete Street improvement project is currently underway that will significantly improve Franklin Boulevard’s attractiveness and safety for walking, biking and shopping.
Other emerging projects include a pilot on-demand micro-transit system; car share and bike share opportunities; community murals; Sacramento's Mercado business incubator combining a Hispanic/Latino food hall market and food trailers with a community kitchen; heat island and solar energy improvements; a public plaza and more.
