Goals for Borough Government

To maintain Franklin Park Borough as one of the top communities in the United States. This will require continued but carefully controlled growth, maintenance of existing roads, parks and other infrastructure, and keeping the local property tax rate as one of the most affordable in the area.

In the next several years, the Borough will continue to improve the Parks and Recreation facilities and will be supporting the construction of a new volunteer fire company station. The Borough has carefully planned for these capital improvements to lessen the impact of them on residents.
