Since incorporation in 2006, the City of Milton primarily utilized leased commercial space for City offices, with the exception of three current fire stations inherited from Fulton County. In 2016, the City opened its permanent City Hall in downtown Milton.
Providing permanent City facilities for our staff has been a key focus for us during the Citys first decade of operation, said Mayor Joe Lockwood, who has served as Miltons mayor since its incorporation. Once City Hall was built, we immediately went to work planning this public safety facility, and we are thrilled that well now have a strong City presence on Highway 9.
The $13 million public safety complex will include a nearly 25,000-square-foot police and court building, and a separate 14,000-square-foot fire station.
The public safety complex is designed to serve as an anchor for our Deerfield/Highway 9 district, much like City Hall serves as the anchor for our downtown Crabapple district, said City Manager Steven Krokoff.
Construction is expected to finish in September 2020.
