On Saturday, May 11, 2024, there will be a second BEN 4 Franklin launch event: Cobi Frongillo and Franklin Matters’ Steve Sherlock will be leading a 90-minute Jane Jacobs Walk (rain or shine!) at 10:30 AM starting from the Franklin TV Studio, to explore the history, physical structure and architecture of Franklin’s built downtown environment. The community walk-and-talk will be one of thousands of Jane Jacobs Walks that take place every May in honor of the late social activist and placemaker. The walk will be accessible to wheels and paws, and participants are invited to gather afterwards at La Cantina Winery to share thoughts and observations.

Building Equitable Neighborhoods for Franklin (BEN 4 Franklin) will advocate for a Franklin with abundant, affordable housing for all, a walkable, economically vibrant downtown and neighborhoods that evolve in a fiscally-responsible manner. Mark Minnichelli (co-chair), Emma Snellings (co-chair), Cobi Frongillo, Pandora and Gino Carlucci, Max Morrongiello, Ndoumbe Ndoye, Francis Olsson, and Lisa Oxford stepped up as the first BEN 4 Franklin leadership team.
