Invest in the Future
Unleashing the potential of our communities starts with embracing the vibrant spirit of our downtowns and main streets. These bustling centers are where the synergy of jobs, businesses, and people intertwines to create a thriving ecosystem.
We are dedicated to fueling the resurgence of main streets and downtowns throughout Franklin County. Our mission is to empower these urban cores with the necessary tools and resources to flourish. We believe that by providing support in the form of technical assistance, financial support, strategic planning, and the art of placemaking, we can transform downtowns.

- Planning Support
- Financial Support
FCEDC offers technical assistance to help communities achieve their main street revitalization goals. We provide guidance and expertise, data and other assistance to build project readiness.
Strategic planning is the foundation of downtown revitalization and leads to public and private investment. We help guide communities through the process from public engagement to execution.
Placemaking is an approach to planning, design and implementation that puts people at the center and results in stronger community pride and higher quality of life. We understand that placemaking is crucial to talent attraction and will work with community stakeholders to build awareness and educate the public on the benefits of placemaking.
Grant funding helps remove barriers to completing downtown revitalization projects. We provide expertise and capacity to bring funding opportunities to communities, businesses and organizations.
