Franklin County hopes to encourage more business development — and help address a county-wide housing shortage — by transforming more than 80 acres of county-owned land into residential development. County officials say there are no homes listed anywhere in Franklin County right now for under $100,000 and just seven homes between $100,000 and $200,000. With a countywide unemployment rate of 2.9%, officials believe more available housing is vital for future business development because a continued shortage could discourage employers from locating or expanding in Franklin County.
