Milford weighs options for creating new playing fields
In 2000, the town bought 270 acres, known as the Brox property, in the west end near Route 101 with the future in mind. The land has plenty of space for schools and municipal buildings, and there are also viable commercial and retail lots on the site that are on the market. According to Director of Planning and Community Development Bill Parker, interest in the commercial and retail space has been minimal because of the lack of roads and utilities.
Should the need arise for the substation, Finan said, permanent fields could be developed on a part of the property known as “the pit.”
“During the course of the next year the town will look at the feasibility of doing a gravel plan to move forward with the possibility of selling gravel,” said Parker.
