Local residents are unhappy with the state of affairs at the old Milford Middle School a month after a referendum failed to pass in the town leaving the fate of the facility uncertain.

The historic structure was built in 1929 but is now boarded up with large pieces of plywood covering the windows.

Local residents told WMDT that they fear the impact on the local property values with such an eyesore.

In order to renovate the facility local residents would have to get a tax increase which would require a referendum.

But the school district cannot do that until October since the failure of last referendum in March by 170 votes.

And there is no decision by the school board to pursue a referendum.
