According to Jason Wright, Communications Director for the City of Milton, the public is invited to the first planning meeting (charrette) for updating and retooling the existing Crabapple Crossroads Master Plan. The meeting is open to the public and attendance is encouraged – here are details: Monday, March 14 at 5 p.m. at Milton City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Parkway Suite 107 E.
We first blogged on the updating of the Crabapple Crossroads Master Plan as discussed in Mayor Joe Lockwood’s State of the City letter. This meeting, presented by Lew Oliver, Inc. Whole Town Solutions, will delve into the transportation, connectivity, building design, identity and long-term planning needs of the Crabapple Crossroads community and the City of Milton’s future City Center. It will feature a short presentation and discussion on a number of topics, including zoning tools like the transfer of development rights – a potentially powerful conservation option that could greatly influence the area’s “village” concept.
“It is vitally important that all aspects of the community – schools, churches, businesses and residences – are represented at this meeting,” said Lynn Tully, Milton’s Director of Community Development. “We are looking for a wide variety of viewpoints and experiences to make this happen. I hope you’ll join us.”
