Hi, I'm Rob.
MILTON - OUR HOME
My wife and I moved to Milton in 2008. It was a natural migration from Boston. What attracted us to Milton was what keeps us here today: diversity, schools, close-knit community, historical character, and the Blue Hills!
A THRIVING CAREER
I am an Architect who specializes in Arts, Entertainment, Hospitality, & Higher Education. A partner at Wilson Butler Architects since 2006, I've designed and managed many of the firms cutting-edge and award-winning projects. As an active leader in our office, I mentor and promote teammates, recruit new staff far and wide, and mold the next WBA generation. I work directly with our clients, envisioning their goals and aspirations in their projects. I believe the design process needs to be a collaboration of all stakeholders for a successful project.
I'm excited to bring this experience and a new perspective to our town. My "outside-the-box" thinking and creativity will be a great asset to move this town forward proactively and responsibly.
Responsible Proactive Planning
To move our town forward proactively, here are my planning goals:
Greater local control of housing development through the housing production plan to fulfill the annual goal of a minimum of 48 affordable units/year until Milton meets the minimum 10% threshold. This will provide an alternative to 40b developments and maintain a sustainable growth pattern.
Identify and create proactive zoning which will promote responsible development to diversify our housing stock.
Provide revitalization tools for our business districts to increase town amenities and tax revenue.
Preserve our historically significant neighborhoods, architecture & open space. This is what makes Milton so special.
Create sustainability standards for new developments. This will provide environmental responsibility and use resources efficiently.
Commit to Smart Growth Planning which prioritizes environment, health, and economic conditions. Smart Growth planning provides a greater range of transportation, housing choices, and prioritizes infill and redevelopment in existing communities rather than development of "greenfield" farmland or natural lands.
