Comments closed

The Town of Milton will be reviewing and updating its Comprehensive Plan over the next several months, starting with the first of four Planning and Zoning Commission public hearings to be held on Monday, May 12 at 6:30PM in the Milton Public Library. The contributions and comments of the residents of Milton are considered to be an integral and extremely crucial part of this process as the Plan impacts all facets of the Town of Milton, particularly its future growth. The public hearings have been scheduled on different days, both in the evening, as well as during the day, and includes a Saturday session for those who cannot attend at other times. Please check the Town website for details.

The Comprehensive Plan is a working, living document that should represent the desires and input of the majority of the residents of the Town of Milton. The public is invited, and strongly encouraged to attend these public hearings, and any other workshops that may be scheduled, so that their voices may be heard and have an impact on the future of Milton.

Town of Milton ‘Start a Business’ Process

The Town of Milton is undergoing a transformation and business owners are beginning to view Milton as a place of growth and opportunity.  There are prime available storefronts located in the heart of the downtown for a variety of businesses.

As a result, the Town has documented the process to start a new business in the Town of Milton.  This effort was undertaken to help new business owners who want to establish a business in Milton understand what their roles and responsibilities are as well as other involved agencies/committees/organizations.  The process can be found at the Town of Milton web site:

This process is meant to be a roadmap for new business owners.  Naturally every business application is different so some steps in the process may be applicable and others not.   This process is to be used as a tool by the new business owner to help ensure a smooth and timely completion of the steps necessary for opening their new business.

One of the main issues that impact the execution of the process is getting timely approvals from various Town committees and organizations.  Due to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) rules and planned meeting schedules, getting hearings and approvals can be time consuming.  However, this issue is a common one that the Town of Milton is looking for ways to help minimize.   In addition, there are steps in the process that are not under the control of the Town.  Depending on which County or State government agency is involved will impact the timeliness of the completion of the step.

As with all processes, communication is critical between the new business owner and all agencies and organizations involved. This cannot be emphasized enough.

This business process activity was one of several key initiatives identified by the Milton Economic Development Committee (EDC).
