I can’t believe it’s June already. The kids are out of school, vacations have started, and the temperatures are getting warm. It is a great time to get out and enjoy summer!
It seems like just a few weeks ago we were getting ready for Spring Break! Where does the time go? I guess it flies, though, when you’re as busy as we are in Milton this summer.
I mean, just look at this newsletter.
First off, we are very excited to announce that Providence Park will be opening this fall. Many of you have fond childhood memories at the park and we cannot wait to see future generations utilizing the 42-acre park with hiking trails, a rock-climbing cliff and lake.
Speaking of future generations in Milton, have you seen the Legacy Milton Initiative? It is a comprehensive, long-term vision with policies, incentives and ideas to help conserve the look and feel of Milton for years to come. Please join me and the rest of City Council in the conversation at this Monday’s City Council Work Session. We are here for you and need to hear your opinions, questions and concerns to develop a plan to keep Milton unique.
Moving right along-- we have a ton of city events this summer! Don’t miss our new Milton Market with food trucks, fresh produce and live entertainment every Saturday this summer at the Broadwell Pavilion. I love the down-home feel of the pavilion and sense of community I feel there!
Also, be sure to check out our annual Flicks & Food Trucks Summer Series starting this Saturday. We’re showing Ghostbusters this week, The Goonies in July and Grease in August – complete with gourmet food trucks and popcorn from the Crabapple Community Association.
If you haven’t made it out to our events, you can always look back at our Flickr page. We’ve got photos from all past events there- including our Memorial Day Ceremony. We’ve received a big outpouring of support and great feedback from residents about this year’s program, so take a look at the photos and join us next year!
As always, I’ll close by saying your City Hall is always open to your concerns, questions and comments. Be sure to take some time this month to stop by and tell us what you think.
Mayor Joe Lockwood
