News release

The Town of Milton is launching an awareness campaign to help residents learn more about common by-law concerns like property standards, noise, litter and parking.

The Be a Good Neighbour campaign will share friendly, seasonal tips so that residents understand by-laws before a misunderstanding leads to reporting or enforcement.

This spring, for example, the campaign will focus on seasonal by-law issues such as:

  • Long Grass and Weeds
  • Pet Waste
  • Driveway Extensions
  • On-street Parking
  • Calling the Town before you build or renovate

Milton residents will see reminders about how to Be a Good Neighbour across the Town web pages, social media and digital signs.

The campaign will introduce a friendly ‘door-hanger’ that by-law staff will use to warn a resident who may not understand the Town’s by-laws. These have been translated to address language as a potential barrier.

See the tips, as well as the translated door-hanger.


“We know that Milton residents love living in our welcoming neighbourhoods and want to be good neighbours. We want residents, new and old, to understand how the Town works and to know how they can be good neighbours.”

- Gord Krantz
Mayor, Town of Milton

“The Town of Milton’s by-laws help ensure a safe, quiet and pleasant environment for residents in our community. We hope this campaign helps increase awareness of our by-laws, as we strive to maintain positive relationships with all residents.”

- Meaghen Reid
Director, Legislative and Legal Services/Town Clerk, Town of Milton
