TIME Mission Statement
TIME—The Improved Milton Experience is a non-profit corporation which is focused on community revitalization. It seeks to act as a catalyst in order to instill pride and a positive image for Milton while building from the best of its past, present and future.
TIME envisions a community that is clean, safe, historically significant, and architecturally interesting. The corporation wants to involve as many individuals, businesses, and organizations as possible to complete this goal.
TIME’s Future Goals
Downtown Revitalization –This will continue to be a major role of TIME, following Milton’s Main Street program outline established in 2005 including Economic Restructuring, Historic Preservation, and Promotions and Marketing.
Greater Milton Area Revitalization – By partnering with the local Chambers of Commerce, TIME will increase its overall role by expanding the successes of downtown revitalization throughout the Milton area community.
The Central Susquehanna Valley Thruway – Rt. 15 traffic will shift to the eastern side of Milton onto Rts. 180/147 and will have a positive effect on Milton. TIME plans to help manage the economic and social impacts of the thruway.
Gateways and Corridors – Neighborhood revitalization programs will be implemented focused on the entrances and main arteries of the community, including Front Street, Mahoning Street, Broadway, and Center Street.
Historic Preservation – By partnering with the Milton Historical Society, TIME will continue to preserve the historic integrity of this landmark community. The Milton Historic Downtown Walking Tour will continue to showcase our rich history.
Promotions and Marketing – TIME will expand programs and continue the annual Music in the Park series and Beer Fest, as well as maintain participation in the annual Milton Harvest Festival.
Tourism – All roads lead to Milton — and by partnering with the local Visitors’ Bureau, TIME will market Milton as a “Destination” by further promoting the Historic Walking Tour, Model Train Museum, and other sites, as well as increasing the legacy of famous Miltonians Gov. James Pollock and Chef Boyardee.
