Public works coordinates with the Community Development Department on plan review of site developments.
Milton has found requiring a traffic impact study for proposed developments that meet certain thresholds will: forecast traffic associated with development; determine improvements necessary to accommodate the development; assess the impacts; ensure safe and reasonable traffic conditions; reduce negative impacts; and protect the public investment in the street system.
A resolution accepting the recommendations of the Milton Bicycle and Pedestrian Path Advisory Committee for the Milton Trail Plan was resolved July 12, 2007. The Resolution and Milton Trail Plan recommendations and priorities are utilized as a tool for promoting new sidewalk and trail retrofit projects as a condition of new development.
To promote trail construction with new development and to research grants and costs, the Milton Trail Plan needs to include Trail Development Standards. The Milton Bicycle and Pedestrian Path Advisory Committee and Public Works developed Milton Trail Development Standards including side of the road location, edge of pavement type (cross section), and material type.
The Milton Trail Development standards include development requirements and trail details including proposed cross section and material types for segments of the trail. The materials used will be gravel, concrete, and asphalt. The cross sections show the proposed trail locations relative to the roadway and fence options.
