Two meetings tomorrow at Milton City Hall.

Intersection improvements and Strategic Plan discussed Thursday.


MILTON, Ga., April 27, 2011 - If you've ever wanted to get more involved in your community but couldn't find the right time, tomorrow at Milton City Hall there will be two meetings on topics vital to the community - intersection improvements and the city's Strategic Plan.

5 to 7 p.m.: Intersection improvements open house. The City of Milton Public Works Department will hold an open house from 5 to 7 p.m. tomorrow, Thursday, April 28, in the Executive Conference Room at City Hall to discuss and take public comment on the improvements planned for the intersection of Hopewell, Francis and Cogburn roads.

The open house will be informal, and no presentation will be made. Instead, plans and experts will be available and the public is asked to stop in.

The busy intersection was identified in the Milton Comprehensive Transportation Plan as a key improvement for the city. Both traditional improvements, such as turn lanes and signals, and nontraditional improvements, such as a roundabout, may be appropriate.

7 to 8:15 p.m.: Strategic Plan citizen meeting
Residents are also invited to City Council Chambers, Suite 107E, Thursday from 7 to 8:15 p.m. to provide input on the city's first Strategic Plan, a three-year "road map" for city accomplishments.

Participants will be given the city's draft Strategic Plan, which represents the efforts of city staff and members of Milton's equestrian, business, residential and educational communities. It includes the overall vision, mission and strategies of what of the City of Milton would like to accomplish over the next three years.

Residents will be asked to review the draft Strategic Plan to ensure it captures the spirit of what is important to Milton. The meeting will be moderated by a group of Milton staffers, resident representatives and consultants brought in for this project.
