Milton extends rezoning moratorium


Gives staff time to examine zoning laws


February 10, 2014
MILTON, Ga. – Milton's elected officials voted Feb. 3 to extend for five months the city's moratorium on rezoning applications across multiple residential districts in the city.

"Our staff simply needed more time to examine our current zoning laws in order to produce workable solutions for both the community and applicants," said Mayor Joe Lockwood. "What we're trying to accomplish in Milton is not something you rush."

In their unanimous vote, City Council chose to further bar the acceptance of applications for rezonings to the community unit plan (CUP), neighborhood unit plan (NUP), transitional zone (TR) and single-family dwelling (R-2 and R-2A) classifications.

Community Development Director Kathleen Field explained previously those specific classifications were being used by developers looking to reconfigure traditional setback restrictions. Staff wanted to examine the process to ensure Milton's rural viewshed and feel were preserved.

To learn more about the moratorium and Milton's other smart growth strategies, like form-based coding, transfer of development rights and community-based master planning, visit the Community Development Department's website at www.cityofmiltonga.us.
