A second try for downtown project

FRANKLIN

John Marini's plans for redeveloping a portion of downtown Franklin will again be before the Planning Board in a public hearing Monday night.

Marini had pursued plans to create condominiums and retail space on a former industrial building site, but withdrew them in June, saying he was frustrated with the process. The plan was the second phase of a large-scale renovation of downtown for Marini. Following an Aug. 15 discussion with planning board members, residents and other town officials, Marini decided to resubmit the plans.

He is seeking two special permits for the development, called Franklin Center Commons II. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m.
