As you look around your community and this newsletter, I hope you see some changes you like.
I’m talking about the progress we’ve made on things like road projects. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, the Ga. 140/New Providence intersection work is done, and the Francis/Hopewell/Cogburn roundabout is very nearly complete. After some serious trepidation from residents and passing motorists, we’ve received a lot of compliments on both projects -- so I’m glad you like where we’re going.
You’ve also likely noticed the tremendous work going into building the roundabout at Birmingham Highway and Providence and New Providence Roads, and you’ve probably heard about the groundbreakings for the Hopewell House senior and event center and the Bell Memorial Park expansion project.
If you haven’t, make sure to check out the other change I’m referring to – the amount of video produced by our communications team. We’ve been very lucky to have some wonderful help from local high school students interested in both the business and creative aspects of communicating information to residents. So this summer the team has been able to experiment with how they share information about Milton.
Take a look at the Hopewell House groundbreaking video, the Flicks and Foodtrucks July 12 recap, the Bell Memorial Park expansion project virtual tour and, of course, our Citizens’ Government Academy.
All have been the direct result of the hard work of Cambridge Junior Will Diamond and Milton Senior Mattie Stanley under the guidance of our communications professionals. We really can’t overemphasize how important their work has been this summer, and I think the results we’re seeing in this newsletter really speak for themselves.
Well, that’s enough for this month. As always, let us know what you think about all the exciting work we’re doing here in the City of Milton. We’d love to hear from you, and it’s only through your input that we can get better at providing what you want to see.
