News from Alan Tart, Council Member - District 6 Milton, GA

November 30, 2008 Update from Council Member Alan Tart (District 6 - At Large)

Dear Friends and Neighbors of Milton:

I hope that you and your families had a great Thanksgiving. I also want to wish each of you a happy and safe holiday season. Please let me know if there is anything that I can do for you. I am always open to your comments and suggestions.

Listed below are several committees for which I still need volunteers. I have indicated the committee positions for which I must select someone from within District 6.

By living in a city that is only two years old, each of you has a unique opportunity to be part of a city's history. You can make a positive mark on your city's history and help shape her future by volunteering. At the same time, you can meet friends and neighbors with similar interests and passions.

Please carefully consider being involved in your city by serving on one of the committees below. Your input and involvement are encouraged and needed for our city's success. Working together, we can ensure that our city remains the best place to live in all of GA.
Thank you for your support and consideration!

Historic Preservation Committee
Volunteer Needed

During tomorrow night's (12/1) city council meeting, the mayor and council will consider a resolution to form a Historic Preservation Committee. Once established, the City of Milton Historic Preservation Committee will be responsible for preserving the character and fabric of historically significant areas and structures for all present and future citizens of Milton. The committee will accomplish this task by protecting structures through local designation and through providing technical assistance on the restoration and rehabilitation of historic structures or areas. It is possible that each council member may be able to appoint two persons for this committee - one with historical roots to Milton or the NW Fulton area regardless of residency and one from within each council member's district. If you have historical roots in the area and would like to be on this committee, please let me know. You do not have to live in District 6 to be considered. Also, if you live in District 6 and would like to be part of this committee, please let me know. Send your resume with letter of interest to me at AlanTart4Milton@comcast.net. No specialized experience is required.

Transportation and Intersection Improvement Committees - Volunteers Needed

Two additional committees will be considered by the mayor and council during the month of December. These committees will work closely with our Public Works Department to develop recommendations for transportation needs (transportation master plan) in Milton, as well as work with staff on providing recommendations for intersection improvements. Specialized experience in the area of transportation design is a plus. Luckily, I have had some interest in these committees, but I am still accepting applications if you are interested. If you live or own a business in District 6 and are interested in serving on either or both of these committees, please send your resume and letter of interest to me at AlanTart4Milton@comcast.net.

If you live in District 6 and are interested in serving on this committee, please send your resume and letter of interest to me at AlanTart4Milton@comcast.net.
