MILTON Ga. The Milton Public Works Department held an open house Thursday, Nov. 14, for the community to review and provide feedback on potential improvements to the Crabapple area streetscape.

Public Works Director Carter Lucas said this is a federally funded project that will allow the city to improve the streetscape in the Crabapple area by extending sidewalks and working with other streetscape components such as street trees, landscaping, benches and street lights.

"The goal of this project is to increase pedestrian connectivity within the Crabapple area, particularly with the library coming in," said Lucas.

Gathering community input is the first step in this process. Once the input is gathered, the department can proceed with the design of the streetscape and try to incorporate the comments and suggestions from the community in the overall design.

"This particular meeting is to look at the concepts and try to get some community input and feedback as to whether or not that is going in the right direction," said Lucas.

Images of the potential plan were set up for viewing and members of staff were present to answer questions and listen to comments from the approximately 40 community members who attended. Community members who came were asked to leave their comments by filling out a survey.

"I'm glad they are here to get the community's feedback," said resident Sally Rich-Kolb.

Resident Lisa Renko said she was excited about the plans for streetscape improvement. She said she has a vested interest in pedestrian safety as she and her husband are both runners.

"Anytime they want to put in more sidewalks, I'm all for it," said Renko.

Copies of the potential streetscape plan should be online soon at miltonintersectionprojects.com along with an online version of the survey for community feedback.
