Two Milford Streets Ranked Top 10 in America

Posted:

MILFORD, Del. - Nancy Chirdon Forster says she always knew Milford was her home.

"I've seen a lot of changes in downtown. The main street was always clean, but there was a group that decided they wanted to do more in the beautification process to bring more green plants, more color and bring more small businesses downtown," said Chirdon.

All of that hard work paid off. A city of less than 10,000 people, North and South Walnut streets are now considered one of 10 great places in America by the American Planning Association.

Lee Nelson is the executive director of Downtown Milford Incorporated.

"That award is wonderful to have but, and it's not a culmination of anything, but it is certainly the result of a good 8 to 9 years of work," said Nelson.

The award showcases the city's revitalization, art scene, architecture and it's businesses, just a few reasons Forster moved to Milford. Forster recently opened Verde, an Italian cooking school along SW Front Street.

"This is a place that I have adopted. I'm not from here. That's why I wanted to do it in downtown particularly," said Forster.

Mispillion Art League president Judy Struck highlights the vast array of activities.

"There's the Music School of Delaware. From May through October there's the farmers market. We have the library, so there's a lot of activity going on," said Struck.

A lot going on that has placed Milford on the map.
