Franklin County Broadband Authority and its consultant, Design Nine, Inc., have created a Broadband Assessment and Plan for Franklin County dated August 2019. This plan was approved by the Franklin County Broadband Authority on August 20, 2019. Per Section 15.2-2223 of the Code of Virginia, as amended, the County’s Comprehensive Plan “shall consider strategies to provide broadband infrastructure that is sufficient to meet the current and future needs of residents and businesses in the locality”. The Franklin County Board of Supervisors proposes to adopt the broadband plan as an amendment to Franklin County’s 2025 Comprehensive Plan adopted in May of 2007.
