In an effort to address citizens' desires to protect some land from development, the City of Milton is proposing $25 million in bonds, which will be used to acquire land for parks, trails and greenspace including conservation land, wildlife habitat and natural areas. Milton citizens will have the opportunity to vote for the proposed bond referendum on November 8, 2016.
The ballot will read:
Conservation Land, Wildlife, Habitat, Natural Area, and Trails Bond.
Shall general obligation bonds in an aggregate principal of up to twenty-five million dollars be issued by the City of Milton, Georgia to acquire conservation land and interests in conservation land for the purposes of providing recreational trails, protecting natural areas and wildlife habitat, preserving agricultural land, protecting water quality of rivers and streams and providing parks and park improvements?
