Milford Borough Design Guide Revisions

A Final Public Review Draft of the updated Milford Design Guide for the Milford Historic District is available for public review.

The Milford Design Guide has been revised to incorporate public comments received on the Public Review Draft issued on September 1, 2022.

The Final Public Review Draft is being made available ahead of its proposed adoption by the Milford Historical Architectural Review Board and the Borough Council. The Design Guide will be available for the monthly Historical Architectural Review Board (HARB) meeting on Wednesday, December 14, 2022, and until the Borough Council meeting on Monday, December 19, 2022.

What has been updated? 

  1. The “Criteria for Evaluating Significance & Integrity” section and local category system has been removed from Section 1.4 Design Review Procedures. This change was recommended by the Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office (PA SHPO) and ensures that the Guidelines follow PA SHPO’s best practices.
  2. Chapters 1 and 2 of the Design Guide have been reorganized for clarity. The content of individual chapter sections remains mostly unchanged from the first Public Review Draft, with some text revisions.
  3. Minor text revisions and addition of a navigation button to return readers to the Table of Contents if reading the digital version of the Guide.
