Dear Milton Residents,

Written by Mayor Joe Lockwood

Summer is in full swing, and it’s hard to believe that another year is halfway through. On behalf of everyone with the City of Milton, we want to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July and a safe and enjoyable summer. Whether you’re traveling long distances to vacation or celebrating summer with a few family “staycations,” I hope everyone is making lasting memories with their friends and family!
While summer provides a bit of downtime for the overall community, it’s actually a busy time of year for our staff, as they are gearing up for the next budget cycle. This summer is particularly busy for our staff since we’ve brought on additional parks and recreation amenities this year with the addition of the Milton Country Club property. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of our entire staff, citizen volunteers, and the Milton Council, Milton’s Parks and Recreation department is now offering swim and tennis programs at the former Milton Country Club.

While long-term planning decisions regarding the Milton Country Club property, including the greenspace, trails, and the facilities, have not been made, we’re excited that we could work together with so many in the community to continue the tennis team program and the Milton Swim Team program for 2018. In addition, we’re also offering residents access to the tennis courts and the pool this summer.

The community planning meetings are scheduled for this summer, and we hope our Milton residents will get involved in the planning discussions. This is an incredible community asset that needs the time and attention of our residents, so I want to personally invite you to participate.
