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.
