Residents Speak Out About Neighborhood Eyesore

Posted:
MILFORD, Del.- People say they’re fed up with an eyesore sitting in their neighborhood. The old Milford Middle School building is boarded up and residents aren’t too happy about. They plan to voice their concerns at the Milford School Board Meeting Monday evening.

"We got upset,” said Milford resident, Patti Persia who lives directly across the street from the abandoned school. “I mean this is not what we want to look at everyday."

Persia says neighbors are concerned about the effect the eyesore will have on the community.

"The impact of that whether the intention was that with the school board the impact is that it will affect property value,” said Persia.

According to Milford School District officials, the building being boarded up is an aftermath of the referendum not passing. The school district was hoping to either fix the building up or completely build a new school. Without the money there is nothing they can do with the building.

For residents like Persia, she believes there has to be another option that letting the building go to waste. "We feel that there is a better way it could have been done. We definitely need to put those ideas out there and find out what's going to happen."

According to school district officials, the school district is hoping revisit the idea of getting another referendum in 6 months when they can.
