In Milton, a Traditional Neighborhood District was created by the city to regulate growth and development. The plan was prepared to amend an original Community Redevelopment Area Plan established in 1982. By defining the Traditional Neighborhood District as a compact, traditional community, Milton can make decisions based on the principles of a small town. The DCRA will help Milton control growth and development. For more information, visit the DCRA's website.
