I've lived up north, and in the south, in areas similar to Milton (been in Milton for a little over a year) and what attracted me to the area was the quiet rolling hills, the lack of traffic (except during school and rush hour) and the dead quiet at night.

Do NOT let developers destroy this beautiful area, if give a chance, they will use up EVERY square inch of land to line their pockets. THEY DON'T CARE!

It's up to us, up to council and our elected officials to take a stand and preserve space. Keep things they way they are. There are enough homes for sale to allow people who want to come here to come here.. we don't need new development, crammed in, at lower values so people can come here. If they can afford it, they can afford the homes for sale now. We don't need 2,500 NEW people crowding the area, roads, and the associated infrastructure that would need to be built to support that.

It is a MISTAKE that I've seen happen again and again. PLEASE stand up everyone, and press your officials, or boot them out if they don't stand up.

Do NOT let this Happen
