Milton Newsstand: April 19, 2012

Milton Ontario Newspaper

Milton Newsstand is a weekly rundown of links to current Milton news headlines around the mighty interwebs. This week, angry Moffat residents voice their concerns to Milton Hydro, a second ‘green’ condo could be coming to town, the Eductation Minister visits and more.

The gale-force winds that blew through town last week (on recycling day, natch) looks like it will cost Moffat residents thousands of dollars as many electrical items were damaged by massive power surges. Apparently a public meeting was held shortly thereafter, where angry residents voiced their concerns to Milton Hydro. No word as to whether or not torches and pitchforks were confiscated at the door.

Oh look, Halton Region Chair Gary Carr is blogging!

A second ‘green’ condo has been proposed for Milton on Main St. west of Bronte by Del Ridge Homes. If constructed, the building will incorporate many environmentally-friendly technologies such as solar panels and geothermal heating and cooling, similar to the previous Del Ridge development on Main St. west of Ontario.

Education Minister Laurel Broten was in town recently, visiting Escarpment View Public School with former provincial Liberal candidate Indira Naidoo-Harris to promote the merits of full-day kindergarten.

And shovels are set to hit the ground very soon on a 500,000 square-foot outlet mall situated just outside of Milton at Trafalgar and the 401. The location is consistent with the Town of Halton Hills’ strategy to build absolutely everything they can (outlet malls, power plants, etc.) at their southwestern boundary, right on Milton’s doorstep.
