The state will give Milford $300,000 to pay for a historic walkway to help celebrate the city\u2019s 375th anniversary. The Founders\u2019 Walk plan calls for the replacement of an abandoned road alongside Milford Harbor with a landscaped walkway that will include history kiosks, tables, a veterans\u2019 memorial wall, landscaping and related environmental improvements. The site is where the original settlers of Milford landed, state officials said. The bonding was approved by the State Bond Commission at its meeting on Friday, March 28 in the Legislative Office Building in Hartford. State Rep. James Maroney, Kim Rose and Paul Davis and Senator Gayle S. Slossberg, who represent Milford in the General Assembly, released information about the funding shortly after the meeting Friday. Founders\u2019 Walk is one of the projects borne out of the 375th Anniversary Committee, created by the Milford Board of Aldermen, to celebrate the 375th anniversary of Milford\u2019s founding. \u201cConnecticut is a state that has a rich historical heritage,\u201d said Governor Dannel Malloy. \u201cI\u2019m proud that the state can partner with local communities on projects like this that bring our history to life. Founders\u2019 Walk will be a destination in Milford, one that will be enjoyed by generations of Milford residents.\u201d \u201cThe Founders\u2019 Walk and veterans\u2019 memorial wall will be lasting markers to educate generations to come about our city\u2019s history,\u201d said Sen. Slossberg. \u201cI wish to thank Governor Malloy for supporting this project as we continue to celebrate Milford\u2019s 375th anniversary.\u201d Bob Gregory, chairman of the 375th anniversary committee, said the funding will be turned into a great gift for the city. \u201cEach celebration committee has left something of significance to Milford and this will be the 375th\u2019s resounding gift of history,\u201d Gregory said.
