Franklin Boulevard


The Franklin Boulevard Business Association (FBBA) is a 501 (c)(4) nonprofit. Founded in 1985, the district has long been an area that attracted immigrants from Mexico, Central and South America,
Southeast Asia, and Eastern Europe. As a result, Franklin Boulevard has many long-standing multi-generational businesses founded by past immigrants, as well as new businesses started by immigrant entrepreneurs.


FBBA serves as both a Property and Business Improvement District (PBID) for the Franklin Boulevard corridor between Sutterville road and Turnbridge Drive. FBBA's revenue comes primarily from assessments on over 150 properties in the PBID based on parcel size, frontage, square footage, and zone. Smaller assessments on 600+ properties in the Business Improvement Area are based on whether the business is retail or not. 

The Franklin Boulevard Business Association works to create an attractive commercial corridor in the area through clean and safe services, assisting our small businesses with problem-solving, technical assistance, resources, and referrals, hosting business and community events, and supporting the City in its work to develop and construct the Franklin Boulevard Complete Street. We are committed to serving our district, community, business and property owners. 


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.
