Milford Spends $1.1 million for Land

The Board of Aldermen voted unanimiously Monday night to approve bonding $1.1 million to acquire a 13.5-acre parcel at 462 Oronoque Road. The land is surrounded by a 50-acre oganic farm.

The owner's sought to construct a junkyard there, and also owed the city $450,000 in back taxes, which will be repaid to the city at the closing.

More than a dozen residents spoke in support of the purchase. No one spoke in opposition.

The city has no immediate plans for the land, but it is likely to be developed in the future. For more on this story keep checking, and to get Milford news as it breaks follow Brian McCready on Twitter @nhrbmccready.
