Daniel Street Apartment Proposal

Do you want a side of apartments with your burger?

You may have heard that the local American fare restaurant chain Eli's (on Whitney, on the Hill, etc.) is opening a new spot in downtown Milford along Daniel Street. It's going in where the former Daniel Street nightclub was.

As the owner of the building, Richard Ciardiello, is applying to the Planning and Zoning Board for approvals to build the restaurant, he's also trying to get approved to build three apartments above the spot.

I've talked to zoning officials and everything appears in compliance - that is, the restaurant and apartments comply with the zoning in that area - but Ciardiello will have to prove that there's parking available for it all.

The thing is: parking in downtown Milford, a problem as old as the green is long.

There's a public hearing tonight at city hall; approval from the PZB won't come until a later meeting.

Outraged? Concerned? Excited?
