Franklin approved a rezoning of 29 acres in the Breezeway subdivision from residential to civic institutional for construction of a new elementary school.
The Board of Mayor and Aldermen also agreed to plans for paying for needed infrastructure improvements, such and road improvements, to which Williamson County Schools have agreed to pay $1 million toward as long as Franklin officials spend that money within the first two years of the bond issuance.
The concern by residents of the area is that Wilson pike has a one lane underpass and it would be very difficult for additinal traffic as well as buses to navigate the road safely. To some people, It seemed like an unnecessary expense to purchase land in an area where road improvements would be necessary immediately.
