ABOUT ME

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. 

MISSION STATEMENT

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.
