Consultation has concluded

Milton undertook a Mature Neighbourhoods Character Study to gain a better understanding of the elements and qualities that contribute to neighbourhood character. The study assessed whether the policies of the Official Plan and the regulatory framework of the Town’s Zoning By-law are effective in managing development and maintaining the character of mature neighbourhoods. The study informed improvements to these policies and other tools.

The Town of Milton has engaged the community about this study through walking tours, open houses and online surveys.
