Tidbits from EDC meeting
Stopped by the Milford Economic Development Commission meeting this morning and picked up a few local business tidbits for you. Here you go:
-The Colony Grill at the former Harrison's Hardware site should open by May (according to rumors - it's definitely going to open soon, but an exact date isn't firm). In the meantime, whet your whistle on the restaurant's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ColonyGrillMilford
-The Milford Chamber of Commerce wants to have a Milford Restaurant Week starting Sept. 22 and lasting through that week. During the week, you would get price fixe options at city eateries.
-The EDC applied for a little over $30 million in aid from the U.S. Housing and Urban Development department for Hurricane Sandy relief for homeowners. A tentative timetable for that money getting to Milford is a little over 4 months, but maybe sooner.
-The Milford Film Festival might happen Sept. 6 and 7. A "major celebrity" may be a spokesperson for it.
