"The City appreciates the comments that have been provided on the above development. I would like to clarify that the issue with East Valley Auto is a private issue between them and their landlord. The City has no control over who the owner of Surprise Lake Square chooses to lease their property to, and while we are disheartened that they did not provide East Valley Auto an opportunity to renew their lease, this is not something that the City can take into consideration when reviewing an application for development.
The City's role when we receive an application to develop land is to process it in a fair and timely manner, taking care to ensure that the proposed development conforms to all the development regulations contained within the City's Municipal Code, Comprehensive Plan, and Design Standards. If the proposed development conforms to those standards, the City then grants approval of the application.
It would be unlawful for the City to deny a permit to develop the property based on a private issue between the tenant and the landlord, regardless of if the City wishes to have an auto mechanic within City limits. I do feel for East Valley Auto and I would be happy to provide assistance to them should they choose to relocate elsewhere in the City and require development applications (such as to build a new building, or renovate an existing building).
Thank you to all who have supported East Valley Auto and we do hope to see them stay within the City of Milton." -Mayor Shanna Styron Sherrell

Buffer averaging is proposed for two on-site wetlands. Access will be provided off of Milton Road. The Lloyds gravel quarry is zoned Planned Development (PD) in the City of Milton which means that any proposed uses that are not already present on the site (surface mining, yard waste recycling, concrete crushing and public utilities) requires a master plan be submitted that shows the proposed development of the site and includes allowed uses, density, height, setbacks and other bulk regulations that will govern any future development of the site. The master plan process was put in place by the City in response to the environmental conditions on the site that would constrain future development. Rather than completing costly studies at the time the City’s Comprehensive Plan was adopted, the PD District was created to allow an applicant to perform these studies at the time the property was ready to be developed.
A Master Plan goes through a Type V Permit Process which include public notice, a neighborhood meeting, and an open record hearing before the Hearing Examiner. The City Council then conducts a closed record hearing and issues a decision approving, approving with modifications, remanding the application back to the Hearing Examiner for review, or denying the application. The public may provide feedback on the application in writing, by attending the neighborhood meeting, or by testifying at the public hearing (to be scheduled at a later date).

Two vehicular access to the site will be provided – one on Taylor Street and one on 23rd Avenue.
