Virtual open house recordings

Virtual open house on July 9

On July 9, 2020, Public Works staff held a virtual open house to present information and allow for questions about the Franklin West reconstruction project scheduled for 2022. This was the first public meeting for the project. Watch this recording of the presentation for information covering project background, goals, scheduling, and more.

The Franklin West project team chose to hold this meeting virtually rather than in-person to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 per guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Health. Thanks for watching.
