The city’s Economic Development Commission will take the lead in attracting more tourists to Milford.
Mayor Benjamin G. Blake said he asked the EDC to add tourism to its agenda.
“By adding tourism to the agenda we are demonstrating there is a commitment from the city to build this industry,” Blake said in a release. “Our city boats 17 miles of shoreline, hotels, fabulous restaurants, shopping and easy access from boats, cars and trains.”
Economic Development Director Julie Nash will begin data collection, which will result in an economic impact study.
“This study will help us determine who is coming to our city, why are they here and how do we get them back,” Nash said in a release.
EDC Chairman Robert Kapusta said he’d like to see the city encourage residents to enjoy a “stay-cation” in Milford because the city has so much to offer.
