The City of Milford, Connecticut, has a new Historic Preservation Ordinance this morning. Approved last night by the Board of Aldermen, the new ordinance will afford protections to historic homes that are otherwise situated outside of established historic districts. To be protected under the new ordinance, a home is required to be on the State Register of Historic Places.
Milford is the third municipality in the state of Connecticut to have en-acted such an ordinance, following Hartford and New Britain. The new ordinance is based on a model ordinance published by the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation and enabled by recent legislation at the state level.
Congratulations, City of Milford! Well done!
