Milton Seeking Input For City's Future


OK, Miltonians, dig in your Fibber McGee closet and see if you can find your crystal ball, polish it with an old t-shirt, and take it to Summit Hill Elementary School on May 29 or 31.
City officials are asking residents to help them come up with a vision and a plan for what Milton should look like way into the future.

Led by consultants BRPH Inc., the event will provide residents and business owners with the opportunity to speak about projects and programs within the new city that are "uniquely Milton" and will chart a course in days to come, according to a prepared statement from the city.
This process is designed to be interactive and exciting for the citizens of Milton who choose to participate.

The statement said that residents will help the planners determine:
Which natural and cultural resources should be protected? What unique opportunities exist? How should threats be addressed? Where should different land uses be placed? How can infrastructure be provided? Who from the public and private realms should be responsible?
The May 29 session starts at 6 p.m., and the session May 31 session begins at 9 a.m.
