MILFORD — The Milford Redevelopment Commission met for the final time in 2022 to tie up business and set in motion plans for 2023.
The main order of business for the group was to approve plans to begin the process of forming a new residential TIF district for what is now being called the Northeast Residential Housing development. It will be located near, but separate from, the existing North Park subdivision.
The unanimous vote now sets into motion a 12-month window to hold various hearings and receive approvals from other organizations, including the Kosciusko Area Planning Commission, Board of Zoning and Appeals, Wawasee School Board and Milford Town Council. The commission hopes to start those processes early in 2023.
In other business, the commission unanimously approved its agreement with KEDCo to continue its partnership in 2023. The outlay approved by the commission was $8,500, which did not change from previous years. Alan Tio, KEDCo’s CEO, was on hand to codify the agreement.
Milford Clerk-Treasurer Tricia Gall said there is not yet a person in place to potentially replace commission member Charlotte Siegfried, who announced her resignation earlier this year. Anyone interested in joining the Milford Redevelopment Commission is invited to contact Gall at (574) 658-4519.
