Big questions: Living in Milton

We Make Milton is moving forward with Council-endorsed policy directions for the Living in Milton theme – which includes topics that impact the everyday life of residents and address important community issues. These topics are affordability and housing choice, climate change and resiliency, history and cultural heritage, parks and recreation, places of worship, rural living, urban design, and youth.

Thank you to all those who shared their feedback on these Living in Milton policy topics. For details about the Living in Milton policy topics, read the Introduction report, Background and Information report and Big Questions report in the document library or watch the explanatory video series.

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. All policy considerations for this project were developed to reflect, and align with, the vision: ‘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.’

Next steps

Engagement opportunities for the remaining We Make Milton policy themes (Growing in Milton, Moving in Milton, and Working in Milton) will take place later this year.

Watch this video to meet the Miltons and their friends. They are proud and active members of our community that live around Milton and have different local interests. They are getting involved in the new Official Plan project, a policy initiative that will manage Milton's growth for the next 20 years. Through the We Make Milton engagement process, the new Official Plan's modern land-use vision and framework will be crafted locally, in partnership with the community.

Monarch Butterflies are now officially endangered species. We need a special project to encourage reproduction. We can accomplish this by planting more Milkweed shrubs in our conservation areas and/or personal gardens. Here is the link for reference.https://www.nwf.org/Garden-for-Wildlife/About/Native-Plants/Milkweed

Please hire someone who knows how to effectively program the Town's traffic lights. The current traffic light system is terribly inefficient and causes unnecesary delays and is a significant cause of pollution. I am so tired of getting red lights when there are absolutely no cars or pedestrians going in cross traffic.

I like Milton to set the bar for renewable energy. Let's start will all government be retrofitted with solar panels. Let's install them on all new schools being built or planned.

Let's make the planned Trafalgar GO station run on 100% solar and wind.

All new build, residential or commercial, should have 50% of the roof surface have solar panels.

We need to partner with the provincial government help shoulder the cost.

I have read the "Places of Worship section" of the Big questions report. As a volunteer leader in a church in Milton, I wish to thank the town staff who have put this report together, and have taken the time to listen to the concerns of faith groups in Milton. The policy considerations section starting on page 118 is an excellent summary of the actions that Milton must, should, and could do to facilitate the establishment of Places of Worship for the benefit of the community. I agree with these 7 considerations and would encourage you all to work toward their implementation. Thank you for listening.
