MILTON — People who live, work, and otherwise have an interest in the future of Crabapple, Milton, and its downtown are invited Thursday to a public workshop focused on what’s being called the District at Mayfield.
The District at Mayfield encompasses 22 parcels that span nearly 18 acres in part of Milton’s Crabapple character area. It includes properties such as Broadwell Pavilion and the Milton Library off Broadwell Road, Charlotte Drive, Mayfield Road, and Mid Broadwell Road.
After hearing from citizens, the city will work in the coming months to create a concept plan for this defined area. Such a concept plan’s goal is to further ensure consistency, quality, and cohesiveness in an area important to Milton and especially its downtown.
The Jan. 19 event will take place from 4-to-6 p.m. in City Hall’s Council Chambers at 2006 Heritage Walk.
This “public workshop” as well as two others to follow — on Feb. 9 and March 2 — will be interactive opportunities for people to learn about this project, which isn’t set to include any rezoning, by exploring maps, taking in information, and engaging with city staff with questions, ideas, and the like.
If you want more information on the District at Mayfield, including answers on several common questions (can’t go to Thursday’s workshop), go to www.miltonga.gov/DistrictAtMayfield.
Why It Matters: While much attention is given to national politics and the workings of Congress and the White House, local government meetings are where the decisions that impact your daily life are made. City Council, County Commission, School Board Meetings, and Town Halls are where your elected leaders discuss and decide the issues that most effect your family and your community. These meetings are open to the public.
Each week, The Georgia Sun highlights some of the meetings and local government actions you need to know about in your community to keep you informed and to make sure you know what decisions your elected officials are considering and how your tax dollars are being spent.
