Milford (Del.) district passes $57 million bond to renovate vacant 92-year-old middle school

After it is renovated, the former Milford Middle will house grades 5 and 6.

The Milford (Del.) district has won approval of a $57 million referendum to upgrade a vacant middle school building.

The former Milford Middle School has been vacant since 2013. Voters approved a bond issue last month to overhaul the facility, reports

The building opened in 1929 as a high school. The plans call for a renovation of the historic portion of the building. More recent additions will be demolished to make way for new construction.

The renovated building will house about 1,000 fifth and sixth graders, who now attend Milford Central Academy. Milford Central hosts grades 5 to 8, and shares a campus with Milford High School. Reviving the old Milford Middle will alleviate crowding at the academy. 

The estimated cost for the project is $57,270,453; the state will contribute $42,380,185, and the district is responsible for the remaining $14,890,318.
