Milton plan on agenda
Clutha District Council’s plans for Milton take a further step forward today, when councillors meet to receive community feedback about the Our Place Milton community plan.
Council staff will be asking councillors to approve a variety of project groupings, which will allow them to be developed further and brought back for further approval before the end of the year.
Just under 1600 responses were received and included in the Our Place Milton feedback report earlier this year. Based on the feedback, the CDC will look at project areas including the main street, swimming pool, development in and around the town, walking and cycling, parks and reserves, and community and visitor facilities.
Council chief executive Steve Hill said the community plans were a way of implementing council’s goal to promote living and working in the Clutha District.
‘‘Once councillors approve the final priorities and project plans later this year, we’ll be looking for community input to get them off the ground. The success of the projects will depend on the community and council working together.’’
Mayor Bryan Cadogan said it was terrific to see the feedback and understand what Milton residents wanted for their town.
‘‘This is Milton’s chance to change the future trajectory of their town for the better, so let’s get things moving.’’
Milton residents made hundreds of submissions on the community plan.
