Parks Master Plan unveiled April 16.


The draft version of the City of Milton Parks and Recreation Master Plan, including the draft Birmingham Park Master Plan and draft Trail Plan revisions, will be unveiled at a town hall Meeting April 16 at 7 p.m.

This town hall meeting will take place in City Council Chambers at Milton's City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Parkway, Suite 107 E (click here for directions).

"All the previous public meetings, all the surveys and studies, they have culminated in what we will present April 16," said department Director John Rebar. "I urge everyone who came to one of the earlier meetings, or filled out a needs assessment survey, or ever expressed interest in the future of Milton's Parks and Recreation system, to attend this meeting."
Rebar said plan consultants Moreland Altobelli Associates, Inc. are looking for any final public input after residents see what they've created. It will be incorporated to the draft plan sent to City Council in May. It will then be up to Milton's elected officials whether to adopt the plan before them.

Previously, Milton held a series of meetings in late November and early December where residents were asked to weigh in on what they expect from the city's recreation offerings as a whole, and specifically from Birmingham Park and the proposed trail system created in 2007.
