Save the Milton Art Center
We are Milton residents who strongly oppose any plan to locate a Fire Station at the site of the Milton Art Center in East Milton.
While we have great respect and appreciation for our Fire Fighters and public safety, we are joined in strenuous opposition to the proposed location plans for a new station in East Milton.
The Milton Art Center has been welcomed and supported by the immediate neighborhood and plays a critical role bringing the arts to community life. The impact upon the neighborhood quality of life, residential appearance and resident property values would be substantial and destructive.
While we understand the desire for the Town to improve the station in East Milton, this proposed location is entirely unacceptable and will have a devastating impact upon a large number of residents – through the destruction of a beloved and beautiful neighborhood, and the dismantling of the Milton Art Center, which is perfectly suited for the site and is an important civic institution. We urge the Town to immediately abandon this proposal and commit the site to the Milton Art Center.
