From Petition Creator Andrew Huzar: The Milford Borough Common Council passed a unanimous resolution supporting the creation of a historic district in Milford and the New Jersey DEP issued a certificate of eligibility for the district.

A historic district will boost property values and tourism, provide rehabilitation tax deductions for local businesses, and increase historic preservation to maintain our small town appeal. It will also generate widespread economic appeal to our community which will drive businesses to Milford and increase jobs. By providing tax deductions for the restoration of income producing properties the owners of those properties will be able to afford rent reductions, which will enable businesses to devote more revenue toward growth and job creation. Home owners will benefit from increased property values which will help revive our sluggish real estate market. The borough government would benefit from the resulting increased tax revenue while gaining the option of reducing tax rates due to this increase.

      We need more signatures so please ask friends and family to sign. A historic district in Milford will be beneficial not only to the residents of Milford but also the surrounding communities so residents of Holland Township, Alexandria Township, Frenchtown, etc. should sign as well. Past residents are also encouraged to sign.

      I signed because I believe that with a historic district and greater recognition Milford can be the thriving community that it once was.
