Milton; BOE Partner For Two Acre Park.


With a constant plea from residents being the need for more park land, it appears as though council is listening.

Recently, they agreed to develop and use of a 2 acre park located between two Fulton county schools located within the city.

Officially, the BOE ownes the property, but the new partnership will allow the citizens use during off school hours in exchange for the city covering some of the maintenance costs.

The park will be located between Crabapple Crossing Elementary and Northwestern Middle schools.

To be specific, the agreement is as follows:

1. BOE has control of the park from Monday through Friday; 7 a.m.-4:30 p.m., throughout the regular school year.

2.Milton must make a request to use the park via the Crabapple Crossing's principal one week prior in order to use the park from 3 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.

3. However, during this same time frame, Milton will have have the upper hand and use of the park on Monday through Friday from 4:30 p.m. until dusk, and on Saturday and Sundays from 9 a.m. until dark.

4. Non-city sponsored groups cannot use the park.

How does one become a city sponsored group? How much does it cost? Money talks.

Why can't we just get to it and develop the 200 acre park???? Instead of all these BOE parks? Shouldn't we invest there first and create a place where most of Milton will want to go as families.?
What's the hold up?

If the 200 acre park is developed, the parks director will want to be paid $500,000 per year and the city can't afford it.
