Milton's Official Plan update, We Make Milton, moves ahead

We Make Milton, the Town of Milton’s Official Plan project, took another step forward as Council endorsed policy directions for the Growing in Milton theme that will help shape the future of Milton.

At its meeting on Nov. 13, 2023, Council discussed and supported policy directions for the Growing in Milton theme, which will help inform land-use decisions that affect Milton’s future growth.

The Growing in Milton topic papers explore policy options for:

  • Promoting a local approach to growth.
  • Establishing Milton’s future land use structure.
  • Managing growth within the settlement areas.
  • Envisioning growth and promoting good practice.
  • Promoting resource and environmental protection.
  • Delivering infrastructure and community services.

Policy directions were developed based on community and stakeholder input, provincial, regional, and local legislation and guidance, and current planning best practices.

We Make Milton, the new Official Plan project, has previously engaged the public on living, moving and working in Milton.

In 2021, Milton Council endorsed a modern, forward-looking land-use vision for the new Official Plan that reflects our diverse, young and innovative community: ‘Milton 2051: Choice Shapes Us. In 2051, Milton offers a diversity of options for how and where we live, work, move and grow. As we evolve, choice is what shapes us.’
