A new online portal will give users access to a wide-range of Milton-specific data.
Called Discover Milton, the site uses an interactive suite of mapping applications along with an open data repository that allows users to easily find information on property and land use information, as well as interactive mapping applications that provide up-to-date information on everything from current road closures and construction projects to future urban structure and growth studies.
“The purpose of Discover Milton is to make Town information easily accessible and usable for residents as well as business owners and operators,” said Aaron Smit, Acting Director, Information Technology. “From tracking the status of development applications to looking up future land uses or property information, the Discover Milton platform can provide a wide variety of useful information at the click of a button.”
Other online enhancements include search tools and a variety of map layers showing streets, property lines, zoning information, major buildings, parks, community centres, trails, schools and businesses.
“As the demand for online services and digital tools continues to grow, we understand the importance of making data accessible to the community by providing timely and transparent online information about Town services, projects and future developments,” said Troy McHarg, Commissioner, Corporate Services. “The Discover Milton hub is a platform that will allow the Town to continue this mandate now and expand its data offering in the future.”
