I have an idea...just close all roads in Milton....there, are you happy now Tim? Mayor Lockwood
People + cars + roads = wrecks...inevitable
The population in Milton has increased substantially since the roads were built and the infrastructure must accommodate that growth. Many of the roads in Milton should be wider.
Autos and trucks(SUV) are too big, drivers don't pay attention, nothing wrong with roads.
Can't widen the roads and increase speed limits. The open roads are mostly residential acreage and the roads are too winding with too manynblind spots. Widening is not the answer nor feasible solution. It will only make the roads more dangerous for our teen drivers who will feel a false sense of security on a wider road and will increase their speeds. NO widening. If anything we need to drop the speed limits even more on the residential roads and increase police presence.The population of Milton has increased and so has the other cities who have double and near triple our population. The more people who move to the Cherokee border as well the more are going to use our roads to get to 400.
Hey mayor lockwood! You can speak. Why don't you help the people in Milton, or at least try, with a show of backbone rather than your snid remarks.
Gee how much money do you think it would cost to widen all the roads in Milton? Also, do you think we have the money to widen all the roads? Where do you think we get our revenue from? Commercial or Property taxes?We don't have the revenue to do it, nor should we even if we had the money. Do we want to keep our City mission statement or not? Can't have it both ways. Do we want Milton to be unique maintaining the rural character or not? If not, then change the logo to a bulldozer with a divided highway in the background and be done.
Milton is not rural, this is a city of big homes with big yards.
Rural left here at least 20 years ago. Probably over 75% of our population never saw or experienced rural and wouldn't recognize it if they stubbed their toe on it.
Who is the idiot that thinks the mayor is actualy responding to Tim on here?
You are the idiot.
10:27 a.m. The roads can be widened and the speed limit can increase, but those are obviously not the only options. Clearly there must be some changes in Milton's infrastructure given the population growth. People complain about traffic, which will likely become worse in the future. Does it make sense to decrease speed limits and have narrow two lane roads when there are already significant traffic issues during peak driving times? Ignoring the situation will not make it better and behaving as if Milton has not changed during the last few decades is troubling. Many people commute to various locations outside of Milton or pass through it for jobs and recreation; this was not the case when the roads were developed. This trend will not decline, as more people are moving to the North Fulton area.
10:27 -I enjoyed reading your post and understand your points.However, if the decision is made to widen roads, then those that live on such roads will lose property. If things eventually go that route, then no one should have issue with those who lost said property to choose to sell for the highest and best use as well as request sewer to increase marketability.Many families have lived here far longer than most and they are used to what their property encompasses. Take some of that away and you are taking some of their home away.Just my two cents.Tim EnloeAccessmilton.com770 653 0552
