Milton, Georgia

Community Overview




In A Nutshell

Milton comprises the far northern portion of northern Fulton County. It has made a big splash on the scene and is one of the most sought-after Atlanta area suburbs. Incorporated in 2006, Milton has a new city hall, a stately traditional structure adjacent to the town green. Home to nearly 40,000 people, Milton bears the name of Revolutionary War hero John Milton.

Walking, Biking, or Driving

Highways 9 and 372 run through Milton, providing easy access to surrounding areas, including Ameris Amphitheater and North Point Mall in nearby Alpharetta. But Milton prides itself on the slower pace of life it offers, with a network of horse, bike and pedestrian paths to give the city a small town vibe. With a rural character and abundant natural space, the city is dedicated to preserving local history and character.

The Scene

Even though Milton is primarily residential in character, it has enough close-to-home shopping and dining spots to make it self-sufficient and very convenient. From family-friendly eateries to locally-owned boutiques and antique shops, residents will find plenty of services and amenities. In late 2016, city officials initiated a Downtown Milton/Crabapple Placemaking effort to spearhead new development plans.

The Backstory

Milton was once part of Alpharetta and the two municipalities remain good friends. In 2012, a negotiated agreement was penned which allows residents of either community to use the parks and recreation facilities of the other without paying additional nonresident fees. That includes the newly-expanded Bell Memorial Park in Milton, the renovated and enhanced Providence Park, and Friendship Park operated in conjunction with Fulton County Schools.
