No bids offered for Milford firehouse on Melba Street

Based on zoning, the mayor says the building can be used for a business, home, or both. (5/10/14)

MILFORD - A Milford firehouse is still up for sale today after a no-bid auction.

Mayor Ben Blake said he believes the Melba Street firehouse‚Äôs price point, which started at $500,000, was too high for bidders.  However, he wants buyers to know there is a lot of potential for the property.

"Have a little shop at the bottom, maybe a flower shop or chocolate factory or something, and then grab some apartments on top, to live and work, all in the same unit. I think that would be a neat idea," he says. "The possibilities and the opportunities are endless."
