MILTON, Ga., February 29, 2008 -- The City of Milton's Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee (CPAC) is pleased to announce the distribution of a survey questionnaire that will be mailed on February 28th to households and businesses within the new City's jurisdiction. It is anticipated that the survey will be disseminated to more than 12,000 addresses around the City of Milton.
The City of Milton survey questionnaire is a critical component of the Community Participation Plan phase in the development of the City's first Comprehensive Plan. Input received from residents and the business community will help shape community-based priorities as we plan for Milton's future.
The survey is comprised of 10 demographic questions and 36 Milton-specific questions related to development trends, transportation, funding priorities and community services. The brief questionnaire is designed to take approximately five minutes to complete. Members of CPAC developed the survey instrument to address concerns within the City of Milton that have been vocalized by the public at-large as critical issues in developing a strong foundation for the new city. Adequate response is very important for successful planning of the City's future.
The CPAC asks that citizens return the questionnaire in the postage-paid envelope provided, postmarked no later than March 21, so that results can be compiled by the consultants for the Milton Comprehensive Plan. The CPAC will have a prize drawing no later than March 31 for those who submitted a completed survey questionnaire by the deadline. More than 100 prizes and gift certificates have been graciously donated by Milton- area businesses for the sponsored drawing, creating a significant opportunity for residents to win a prize. The winning ticket number will be posted on the City of Milton website.
Mayor Joe Lockwood, the Milton City Council and members of CPAC are excited to be involved in this history-making initiative to craft the first Comprehensive Plan for the City of Milton, and encourage all of residents and businesses owners to voice their opinion on what the City's priorities should be for the next 20 years.
