FNDC Projects

21st Ave Mural

The Franklin Neighborhood Development Corporation (FNDC), in partnership with the Sacramento Office of Arts and Culture, requested for qualifications (RFQ) for artists based in Sacramento for murals on the 21st Avenue underpass of Highway 99 and on the wall of a business on 21st Ave.

These murals’ objective is to help create a more welcoming environment along a key walking route between South Oak Park, North City Farms, and the Franklin District, and to and from Ethel Phillips Elementary School, and to help reconnect these neighborhoods that were cut off by the construction of Highway 99 in the 1960s.

TCC Playbook


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. 

Food Trailers

In 2020, FNDC took delivery of food trailers to rent to our Latino/a Micro-enterprise Program graduates who are looking for an opportunity to enter the food industry without the high cost of signing a traditional lease. As we continue to look for opportunities to acquire land for a Mercado project and kitchen incubation space in the district, we are working in partnership with Alchemist Community Development Corporation and Sacramento County Supervisor Patrick Kennedy to rent these trailers at low cost, providing our minority entrepreneurs an affordable opportunity to grow their business.

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. 

Outdoor Lighting Matching Fun

SMUD recently awarded the Franklin Neighborhood Development Corporation (FNDC) and Franklin Boulevard Business Association (FBBA) with a $15,000 Shine Grant Award to help businesses in the Franklin District upgrade and improve their outdoor lighting. This $15,000 will be matched with another $15,000 from FBBA to create a matching fund of $30,000 towards business lighting upgrades. The goal for this lighting program is to help address and discourage problematic behaviors and conditions in poorly lit areas and improve community safety and well-being for businesses, employees, and residents in the Franklin District.
