A message from the Milton Art Center:
Thanks to your support, last year two Milton selectmen and the Town Administrator assured the Milton Art Center that they would not approve of the proposal by the Milton Fire Space Needs Committee to raze the historic building we have occupied for five years at 331 Edge Hill Road.
It appears that this message has been ignored by the committee who are moving ahead with their original plan. They are holding a series of meetings to pitch their plan and gain community support.
The Milton Art Center is keeping alive the spirit of Nathaniel Kidder’s gift to the town by using the historic building to benefit our community through art education, gallery exhibitions, music and cultural events.
Our online petition is still open, and has had over 450 signers so far. Please have a look at the petition and the the amazing comments of support. Share it, sign it, tell them you value the arts, neighborhood integrity, preserving green spaces and saving historic buildings in Milton.
Please join us at the upcoming Fire Space Needs Committee Meetings where they have invited the community to listen and give feedback about their plans.
Monday, Jan. 23rd at 7:30 pm at Cunningham Park, 75 Edge Hill Rd.
Thursday Feb. 2nd 7:30 pm Milton Senior Center, 10 Walnut Street
We have great respect and appreciation for our Fire Fighters and public safety. However, we strongly oppose the demolishing of the historic East Milton Library building given to the Town by Nathaniel T. Kidder, and now in use as the home of the Milton Art Center, which is a vital, thriving community arts center.
