Petition Tag - milton
Arrowhead Real Estate Partners LLC is proposing a high density, 2-story, 95-unit Assisted Living and 17 townhome development on the corner of Bethany Bend and Cogburn roads – a property designated AG1 and strictly no Sewer.
Why is new commercial and residential development inconsistent with the Comprehensive Land Use Plan and typical densities found within this area being entertained or permitted by the City of Milton. In addition we fail to comprehend why the city would incorporate this designated AG lot as a test within their new initiative to re-zone highway 9 .
How long before Cogburn, Bethany and other neighboring roads cease to be the gateway to the rural heritage we all desire and becomes instead the gateway to development and commercialization.
The approval of this commercial development will amongst other things greatly increase traffic at this intersection, adversely impact the peaceful nature of our Central Milton community and cause further economic harm and hardship to homeowners.
AT&T and American Tower Corporation have submitted an application to the City of Milton to place a 140 foot Cell Tower on the Stars Soccer Club property on Birmingham Highway.
Please join us in our fight against AT&T and American Tower constructing this intrusive tower which will forever change the landscape of Milton. If this tower is permitted in this residential neighborhood, your neighborhood could be next.
This decision, regarding this Cell Tower, will impact us and OUR COMMUNITY for decades.
To voice the concerns of the community of Kilmacolm and object to the development proposal by St Columba’s School for new SCHOOL DEVELOPMENT, ACCESS ROAD, ASSOCIATED PARKING AND INFRASTRUCTURE on the Greenbelt area known as Milton (Duchal) Wood.
On April 21st 2011, the Town of Milton, New York released statements to the Ballston Journal regarding plans for a cell phone tower to be erected at Ed Loya's Auto Parts located at 274 Greenfield Avenue.

Skyway Towers will be floating balloons for testing purposes at the site on Friday, May 13th (rain date: 5/16)
This proposed site is surrounded by residential neighborhoods filled with individuals and families who stand to suffer deep financial loss in the value of their homes as a result of this initiative. Putting cell towers near residential properties is just bad business. For residential owners, it means decreased property values. For local businesses (realtors and brokers) representing and listing these properties, it will create decreased income. And for city governments, it results in decreased revenue (property taxes). As a result, many residential communities around the United States who have experience with this issue have not only seen decreased property values, but an increase in low income housing, more rented properties and higher crime rates.
In an August, 2010 New York Times Article titled "A Pushback on Cell Towers" stated: "The Federal Communications Act of 1996 says health concerns are not a valid reason for a municipality to deny zoning for a cell tower or antenna. Property values and aesthetics, however, do qualify, according to the act."
Although, controlled studies in Europe over a 10 year period have noted cancer rates 3X the average (the highest being breast cancer), most research in the U.S. has been done over a 5 year period. Again, the afforementioned legislation keeps us from fighting for our health, but we CAN fight for our financial security and the value of our community.

Skyway Towers, TMobile and their attorneys have done their homework, Milton town officials and Tom Carter of Ed Loya's Auto Parts are on board and ready to roll. Now, the residents of the Town of Milton deserve to be heard. We invite you to do your own research, but please BE INFORMED and represent your community, your neighbors, your families.
A public hearing is scheduled for Thursday, June 23, 2011. We request that you not only support us by signing this petition, but also by attending the hearing on that day. For information on the Town of Milton, visit their website: www.townofmiltonny.org
Thank you for your time and involvement.

Letter To the editor Milton Ulladulla Times, August 5th 2009
Why Woolworths? Is it sustainable or just going to be an empty building that looks good!
We have seen many letters about the proposed Woolworths development with most complaints about how it will look. What about the main thing- what will it bring to our town?
1. Will it attract people from other towns to Ulladulla? Bunnings used to bring people from Nowra and further north till they got a store. With the development of anew larger Bunnings store in Batemans Bay on the drawing board we stand to lose transient shoppers from as far as Eden who help our local economy out of tourist season.
2. Why do we need another food retailer? We have five food stores in our town already, Coles, Aldi, Franklins and the two IGAs. Why allow another one who will do more harm than good to the smaller stores. It will also affect our independent butchers and liquor outlets. (Do we actually need another liquor store).
3. We have a growing population of adults and children and only one small major clothing outlet. We would benefit greatly from another player in this market. As a town it would be more beneficial to have a Big W from the Woolworths group as this would employ a large number of people,bring a larger diversity of products and clothing for the population and also attract shoppers from Nowra in the north and Eden and make Ulladulla a hub for weekend shoppers from otherlocal communities.
This will in turn bring the shoppers we actually need to make most of the variety stores viable in the Woolworths complex and in the other surrounding districts of Ulladulla and Milton. Why isn't our council looking into the sustainability of this development and not just its aesthetic appeal?
As purchasers of homes in the Milton Trails on the Escarpment community, the sales representatives of our builders promised at the time of purchase that a berm and sound barrier wall would be built along the railway tracks at the East end of our community along Duncan Lane.
For many of us, the Mattamy homes community on the South side of Derry Rd was pointed to as an example of what we could expect. Many of us purchased our homes near or directly across from the railway tracks based on this promise. Now the builders are only building a partial berm in select areas, and have stated that, although promised at the time of purchase, they are not obligated to build a berm & wall as originally promised and therefore ARE NOT GOING TO.
We feel they should have to make good on their promise as this directly, adversely affects our quality of life and potentially the future resale value of our homes.
End the postcode lottery for Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, and Hampshire
residents when it comes to IVF funding and to ensure that current guidelines for IVF funding are adhered to by Oxfordshire PCT, Buckinghamshire PCT, Milton Keynes PCT, Berkshire West PCT, Berkshire East PCT, Hampshire PCT, Southampton City PCT, Portsmouth City Teaching PCT and Isle of Wight PCT.
NICE clearly state in their guidelines for fertility;
“Couples in which the woman is aged 23-39 years at the time of treatment and who have an identified cause for their fertility problems (such as azoospermia or bilateral tubal occlusion) or who have infertility of at least 3 years’ duration should be offered up to three stimulated cycles of in vitro fertilization treatment.”
Unfortunately, many PCT’s do not adhere to this, leaving many couples facing a tough financial commitment or the bleak possibility of having to wait until they are old enough to meet the PCT’s criteria. Whereas some PCT’s do not offer funding for treatment at all.
Please note: Waiting for treatment reduces a women’s fertility rate.
It seems that funding for IVF is not given on the basis of fairness, but on where you live.
For example, if you are in the east of England, your local PCT may follow nice guidelines, however in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, and Hampshire your PCT use their own rules which in some cases makes you wait until 35 years old. At this age success per cycle drops to only 23.6% (HFEA 2006).
This discrimination is unacceptable as National Health Insurance is not dependant on where you live, so why should healthcare be?
Former Secretary of State for Health, Dr John Reid, said that he wanted “all PCTs, including those who at present provide no IVF treatment, to offer at least one full cycle of treatment to all those eligible. In the longer term I would expect the NHS to make progress towards full implementation of the Nice guidance”. His deadline for this was April 2005, but little has changed
All we are asking for is - End the postcode lottery for Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, and Hampshire residents when it comes to IVF funding and ensure that current guidelines for IVF funding are adhered to by Oxfordshire PCT, Buckinghamshire PCT, Milton Keynes PCT, Berkshire West PCT, Berkshire East PCT, Hampshire PCT, Southampton City PCT, Portsmouth City Teaching PCT and Isle of Wight PCT.
We, the following Milton, Georgia residents, are opposed to the gating and abandonment of any city streets in Milton, Georgia.
We believe that city council and staff should be focused on fixing traffic issues; not adding to the problem by privatizing roads that were always intended to be paid for and used by the public.
The legend that is Milton Johns is being replaced as announcer, post-race presenter and auctioneer at Lingfield Park to be replaced by a chap by the name of Steve Watts. This is an appalling decision and one which needs reversing.
Milton has said about this:
"One of the stipulations was that I could carry on conducting the auctions, but I'd get no commission, and I was also expected to go round giving tips in the hospitality boxes before races, even though the rules say that an announcer has to be in the weighing room for the hour before racing."
"I wrote back saying I would be happy to continue working under the same conditions as I have done for ten years. But on Thursday I received another very short letter saying I hadn't been successful."

We feel the World Language Department at Milton High School failed to properly hire a Spanish teacher for the 2006-2007 school year. The originally hired teacher, Ms. Burnett, did not properly teach the required information during her one-term teaching career at Milton High thus leaving Ms. Barron in a difficult place when she came and took over through December 22, 2006. During her short teaching career, Ms. Barron was able to instruct us in the book Ven Conmigo through Chapter 3, Section 2.
On January 4, 2006, we received a review sheet stating what was going to be covered on the exam. It states Chapter 4 will also be included in the exam. Yes, we have a new teacher on the way, however, until he comes, we will have substitute teachers in the classroom. There is no way we will be able to learn everything we have to learn in time for the exam.
This petition has been written in an effort to convince the Milton City Council that their poor decision not to accept the offer from the Van Buren School Board (to acquire the school building & sell it to an individual)has an adverse affect on the community, alumni and City of Milton.
The Building is in very good condition and will cost an exorbitant amount to tear down and haul away. Concerned citizens and alumni have shown overwhelming suport in keeping the building for use as a meeting place, community center and place of business which would better the community and also attract tourism, etc.

Milton Keynes needs rubber/plastic wheelie bins, to keep out animals and wasps. To limit the spread of rubbish around our gardens. For health and safty standards.
We need the trash collectors to be able and willing to empty the rubbish bins without problems.
On July 22nd I was stung by a wasp, due to the rubbish collectors failed to pick up my rubbish on the 15th of July. IF my partner had been stung that would have caused a instant reaction and possiable death due to he is highly allergic. I phoned the rubbish collectors company numberous times between the 15th and the 22nd with out answers. PLEASE sign this petition. Thank You.
