Milton unveils web site for Country Club planning

A new web page hosting all the materials associated with community planning for the former Milton Country Club has been announced by the city.

To visit Milton’s “Plan the Park” page: https://bit.ly/2B90BJs. The site follows public meetings held in October and a planning update given Nov. 5 to the City Council (to view the video: https://bit.ly/2B927eC).

“While these initial meetings may be over, the planning is just getting started,” the city said. “This is a comprehensive process that begins with very high level information (this is where we are at this point), and then works its way down to more detailed discussion, ultimately delivering a draft concept plan for the park that is presented to the community and the council for official comments and feedback.”

As for the club’s current condition: Passive areas, such as the former golf course, remain officially closed to the public; swim and tennis programs for 2019 will be discussed in the coming weeks; and mowing has been suspended for the season but will begin again the spring.

The South Woods have been excluded from mowing in a test of the natural reforesting process, the city said.
