Senator Carper Encourages Growth in Downtown Milford
Representatives from Downtown Milford are working to grow the economy in the city of Milford. They took the senator on a tour of the historic Vinyard Shipyard. It's the last of its kind from Milford's days as a shipbuilding hub.
Carper wants to see Milford use the riverfront as the core of its re-development. He explains, "This is a town that's on the rebound and coming along very nicely. Part of the re-development is the riverfront. When I was Governor of Delaware, we re-initiated the riverfront on the Christina River in Wilmington and it's been hugely successful."
Senator Carper sees the riverfront in Milford as a miniature version of the one in Wilmington and he's looking into ways to help it reach its full potential.
