Vision Statement
3
Franklin Street will be a critical transportation facility for all modes of travel, linking
Interstate 295 and Back Cove to the waterfront & island ferries and serving as an
attractive gateway to the city. Franklin Street will be a vibrant, active and walkable urban
corridor, connecting neighborhoods and destinations. It will enhance the urban fabric of
the city through mixed-use development of appropriate, functional and diverse
residential, commercial and recreational space in the midst of attractive streetscapes.

All modes of travel, including motor vehicle, public transit, bicycle and pedestrian, shall
be able to coexist in a design that is safe and environmentally sound for an urban setting
through state-of-the-art design utilizing optimum architecture, street widths, curbs,
sidewalks and street level crosswalks, and other appropriate amenities such as
vegetation, trees and art.
