Milton to hold green space meeting

Posted:

MILTON, Ga. -- As part of Milton’s continuing green space preservation push, the city is holding a public open house on Wednesday, July 30 to go over options to preserve the city's rural character.

Led by Tom Daniels, a professor and conservation planner at the University of Pennsylvania hired to draft the plan, the open house will allow residents to learn about and give input on the direction of conservation in Milton.

“The development of this green print will give us an actual plan to guide in the establishment and implementation of the best strategies for conservation of Milton’s unique, rural character,” said Laurel Florio, a Milton resident and conservation law expert who joined the City of Milton in April to help guide the city's conservation land use planning. “We know this green print process has been highly anticipated and look forward to input from all citizens, regardless of the type of land ownership or area in which they live.

“All residents will benefit from the sought-after balance between development and land protection. It’s about preserving what makes Milton special and we want to hear from every stakeholder out there.”

The open house will be from 7:30 - 9 p.m. at City Council Chambers of Milton’s City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Pkwy Suite D.
