Milford Trail Project
2006: Created a matching fund grant for the Milford Trail DNR Grant. Helped the Village secure the grant. Fundraising headed by Denise Tyler, Dale Feigley and Jeff Heyn
The Milford Trail is an important link connecting the Kensington Hike/Bike Trail to downtown Milford. This portion of the Trail takes users from the Milford dam, around Hubble Pond Park, over hills and through a densely wooded area to the YMCA. The route continues through the Y property, past the Library, along Commerce Road and eventually will link to the downtown districts’ fine restaurants and shops.
The Village of Milford was awarded a $325,000 grant that was matched by private donations in the amount of $105,000.
The Milford Trail Committee—initiated by the Milford Downtown Development Authority—is an enthusiastic and energetic group of volunteers and should be commended for their success in meeting the challenge of raising the needed private funds.
