Franklinton Board of Trade - Featured Nonprofit
Updated: Jul 2, 2021
The Scope of Our Work
Imagine Franklinton – old and new blending together.
Shops line the streets to provide a variety of products and services that enhance health, beauty and energy.
Neighbors learn and bond with each other.
Streets are clean and inviting.
Neighbors walk the sidewalks in the evenings, greeting each other, looking out for each other as they pass by the neat and clean yards.
It’s a thriving economy that is a microcosm of Columbus.
The buildings whisper of times past, yet some are modern and attractive. New construction envisions the future linked with restoration to preserve our history.
As in the beginning, we are connected to the ground – we live and work in a place that produces flowers, vegetables, and plants of every sort.
The diversity is astounding – yet the community speaks as one voice.
It is a quilt that has been stitched together…. working with each other to lift us all.
Business is social in Franklinton – arts festivals, education events that feed the mind and soul of everyone there – we respect that everyone has something to give.
Franklinton is a place where every resident, every business, every visitor has the chance to experience success, significance and security.
