Milford City Council struck down a proposed zoning change Tuesday night that would have allowed the construction of nearly 100 new apartments.

The current building at the site in question is a vacant school building which once served as a middle school known as Milford Main. It is a 4 acre lot that lies between Main Street and Lila Avenue.

The apartments would have been senior living quarters.

Mayor Laurie Howland said, “So here we are today with this development, this structure with its high structure, is not the gold medal that we deserve. I must vote no.”

The vote fell six to one. Vice Mayor Jeff Lykins is the only council member who voted for the zoning change.
