Franklin Playbook

The Franklin District Community Climate and Revitalization Playbook, completed in 2020, was developed through a robust engagement process with local organizations, businesses and residents. The Playbook highlights a variety of strategies and actions for improving the environment, economy, and livability of the Franklin neighborhood.

Complete Streets

Complete Streets Master Plan for Franklin Boulevard between Sutterville Road/12th Avenue and 38th Avenue. The project will provide a pedestrian, bicycle, vehicular, and transit friendly environment through improved roadway and streetscape designs. The results of this project will provide a framework for prioritizing future transportation investments and addressing mobility, safety, access, parking, street and landscape improvements along the project corridor.   More info here.

Sacramento Mercado

Based on the success of the Portland Mercado, this $3+ million micro-enterprise development project in our district will provide a place for low-income Latino/a business owners, create a sense of place/plaza, and activate the district. This will also be a location for the Alchemy Kitchen to provide commissary needs for small business owners.

 

Micro-Enterprise Program (Spanish)

This is an 8-week course designed for start-up and growing small business. We have experts that come in every week to teach business plans, finances, taxes, licensing, marketing, and more.

Some entrepreneurs from the program will be vending at out Franklin Blvd Night Market, Fridays Dec 6, 2019 - Feb 28, 2020.

Micro-transit

In partnership with Sacramento Regional Transit, on July 30, 2018 we began service for on-demand micro-transit service in South Sacramento and the Franklin Blvd Business District to help provide mobility options for our neighborhoods and business district. Flyers here!

Also, we will soon be adding electric buses via Electrify America! -- FAQs here -- Press Release here -- How it works here.

Art Installation Project

New murals are going up in the district! In partnership with 916 Ink, the California Arts Council, and Sacramento State University are proud to create this public art project in South Sacramento on Franklin Blvd. These dozen murals will represent the culture, heritage, history and future of our district (Fruitridge to 12th Ave).

 

The art celebrates the cultural history of the Blvd with large scale reproductions of posters made by the Royal Chicano Air Force, as well as custom installations created by local artists and former alumni of CSU Sacramento. We will have a few more opportunities to participate as a community member (Volunteer waiver form).

Check out a map of our murals! (Here)

Youth Development - Business Tours

Working with youth from middle- and high-schools in the area, we are providing an opportunity for our youth by exposing them to entrepreneurialism and professional development. These business tours will allow them to engage in a manner they would not have otherwise and learn what it takes to start and run a business as well as what skills they need to be hired in any given industry.
