Milford Community Profile

  • The Town Center is comprised of roughly 75 city blocks anchored upon the Riverwalk and Mispillion River.  It links the water experience with the urban environment, and features an old-downtown feel with wide pedestrian pathways, accessible, walkable retail shopping, historic buildings, parks, schools, and employment.
  • Strategies for future design lays out a detailed plan for residential, commercial, and employment clusters on both sides of S.R. 1.
  • Water, sewer and electric service are continuously maintained, and periodically expanded to meet the needs of a growing population.
  • Long-range plans put forward by both Kent and Sussex Counties acknowledge and compliment Milford’s role for the future.
  • Though an economic downturn in 2008 dampened growth statewide, Milford emerged from it quicker than most and has seen continued interest in growth and development of all types.  The city continues to be an attractive, year-round option for singles, families and retiring boomers.
  • The city is in the process of absorbing a once in a generation type investment by a regional healthcare provider as well as significant continuing investment from some of its traditional major employers.  See Bayhealth Sussex Campus for additional information.
