Legacy Milton: Conserving Milton for the future

May 20, 2015

Fifty years from now, what will Milton look like? If Milton's Mayor Joe Lockwood has anything to say about it, the city will be a better place with the Legacy Milton Initiative and its vision for conserving land for future generations.

Instead of focusing on a single fix, the Legacy Milton Initiative is a comprehensive, long-term vision with policies, incentives and ideas to help conserve the look and feel of Milton. "At the beginning of the Conservation Subdivision Ordinance discussion in Milton, it became apparent that conservation in Milton is much more than a one-size-fits-all solution," said Lockwood.

 

The Legacy Milton Initiative includes a number of conservation options, including the possibility for a green space bond voted on by citizens, potential impact fees on new developments and credits to incentivize larger lot sizes.


"I, along with the city council and support from our city staff, want to be able to leave a legacy and make a difference in Milton for future generations long after we are gone," said Lockwood.

Residents, land and business owners and those hoping to one day live in Milton are all needed for the Legacy Milton Initiative's success. It will be discussed at future work sessions to ensure the public's desires are heard and incorporated into any plan moving forward.
