Looking back on 2015, it was a year of community building and creating connections. We hosted 39 community events with 18,250 in attendance, and the Fire Department took 464 hours out of their busy schedule to engage with the community. We re-opened Bell Memorial Park now with over 36 acres, and we released a Legacy Milton Plan to highlight the City’s conservation goals. 788 companies renewed their business licenses and 148 new businesses applied for licenses, meaning that business in Milton is booming.
Thank you to everyone who helps make Milton a great place to live.
- Mayor Joe Lockwood
CITY HALL GROUNDBREAKING
The City of Milton celebrated its ninth birthday on December 1 with the groundbreaking of the new City Hall, located between Crabapple Road and the existing Braeburn development. Set to open in April 2017, the new complex will include offices, council chambers, meeting areas for residents and a town green to be used for special events.
On October 10, the Milton community celebrated the re-opening of Bell Memorial Park and its expansion. The expansion included increasing the park to an over 36-acre multi–use facility with both passive and active recreation options. There are now four diamond fields and two rectangular fields to host a variety of sports.
Partnering with the Crabapple Community Association, the City hosted the inaugural Milton Hometown Jubilee on May 2. 675 attendees gathered to enjoy dishes and signature cocktails from local restaurants, local shopping and a free Kentucky Derby screening. Broadwell Road was shut down for festivalgoers to experience a true taste of Milton.
