Downtown Delaware or National Main Street. Where? The Downtown Milford District is currently defined as the area roughly bound by North Front Street on the north, Church Street on the west, Causey Avenue/SE Front Street on the South and Denny Row/Washington Street on the East. This area is shown on the DMI map. Who? Members of DMI are merchants and residents of the downtown area—and anyone else who would like to contribute to the improvement of this vital part of Milford. DMI’s board of directors and committees are responsible for planning and implementing various projects. Please contact us if you would like to become a member of Downtown Milford Inc. or would like additional information about DMI. Why? The members of DMI want to preserve this area’s rich historic heritage and bring new life and purpose to it. We have focused on:
- developing the area’s infrastructure through projects such as the Downtown Streetscape Program and the Mispillion Riverwalk;
- improving the quality of our downtown real estate through programs such as our matching grant program for structural and facade improvements;
- attracting and supporting businesses which can make the most productive use of the downtown real estate, for example through our revolving small business loan program;
- organizing and supporting community events in the downtown area such as Saturday Farmers' Market, Bug & Bud Festival, Holiday Stroll, and Santa’s House.
