Working in Milton is the focus of the next area of the Town’s review of its Official Plan.

The document that will shape the future of Milton is currently being updated and the Town of Milton wants to hear from you.

Public engagement is at the heart of We Make Milton, the new Official Plan project that will manage growth and development in the community to the year 2051,” said a Town spokesperson.

The Working in Milton step of the project explores policy options regarding how to:

  • Protect Milton’s existing and future employment base
  • Accommodate and attract a spectrum of industries and businesses
  • Sustain and foster future employment growth through flexibility and adaptability
  • Address climate change, greenhouse gas emissions and air quality
  • Encourage employment intensification in mixed-use and strategic growth areas
  • Support and expand existing and future employment in rural areas

To get involved, the community can visit Let’s Talk Milton to engage in a variety of ways including reading the draft background and policy considerations reports, completing the survey before June 21, attending an information session online or in person, or sharing your thoughts on any Official Plan topic any time in the Feedback Forum.

A report with policy recommendations will go to Milton Council for approval in July. Engagement on the remaining We Make Milton policy theme, Growing in Milton, will occur later this year.
