We Make Milton - Official Plan project


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.

Stay involved from start to finish!


The first round of online community engagement is open all summer and fall. We encourage you to share your comments about the things you value in Milton and how you want the community to grow. You can answer the quick poll, fill out the survey, map your comments and tell us a story below.

The new Official Plan will include contemporary, strategic and forward-looking planning policies to:

  • Provide direction for significant urban growth
  • Welcome a young, educated and diverse population
  • Facilitate active and healthy lifestyles
  • Protect what is valued and foster civic pride

Official Plan
An Official Plan is a legislated and overarching planning document that describes the community’s planning vision and goals and establishes directions for municipal decision-making, including a growth strategy, land-use policies, infrastructure requirements, mobility and transit delivery, design requirements and the protection of resources.

  • Get Milton Moving Again!

    by Pete in Milton, 6 days ago

    When I moved to Milton in 1983 there was one stop on Thompson from Steele's to Derry and you could be out of Milton and on the highway in 5 minutes.
