Update about 'The citizens of Milton, Georgia request a Preserve Rural Milton Initiative to save the unique rural character of our city.'

You are invited to attend a presentation by Carol Hassell, the director of the Georgia Piedmont Land Trust on January 12 at 2 pm.

The meeting will be help at the restaurant adjacent to I love NY Pizza at Birmingham Crossroads.

Carol Hassell is the current director of the Georgia Piedmont Land Trust and was on the city council in Sewanee in the early 2000's, when the city was developing its open space initiative. This plan instituted a $17.7 million Open Space Bond Program. The city now has outstanding greenways and greenspace program. The population, sq. mile area, and SES are significantly lower than Milton's. Therefore, we believe Milton could create a comprehensive plan to focus on preserving rural Milton and raise much greater amounts of funds. As Director of the Georgia Piedmont Land Trust, Ms. Hassell also specializes in private land conservation through trusts. She will be sharing her wealth of knowledge on urban land conservation through both public and private strategies.

This is part of a series of educational presentations that we are sponsoring to promote strategies to address the preservation of rural character in Milton.
