Milford Youth Center Eyes Temporary Location

The Milford Youth Center is looking at moving its programs to a Congress St. location while reconstruction of its home in the former armory on Pearl St. takes place. The Board of Selectmen gave its approval this past Monday for Town Counsel Gerald Moody to begin lease negotiations with Greater Milford Realty for property at 25-27 Congress St.

Selectman Brian Murray, who chairs the Armory Renovation Committee, told his colleagues that bids for the renovation will be opened within weeks and reviewed by the committee on September 10, with a goal of awarding a construction contract by the end of next month. The Youth Center must move its programs before construction begins, he said.

Funds for leasing the space may come from the state. Town Administrator Richard Villani told the board that the state legislature has voted to override a gubernatorial veto of certain state budget items – resulting in $50,000 coming for use by the Milford Youth Center. Murray said the money could be used by the center to fund its programs or to offset construction costs.

The Milford Youth Commission has empowered Youth Center Director Sidney DeJesus to find a temporary location to house the center during construction Murray said. The 25-27 Congress St. location is located next to the Salvation Army's headquarters.

In another real estate matter, Villani told selectmen that the July 18 auction of two acres of land on Beaver St. – which the town acquired through a tax foreclosure – resulted in the land being sold for $75,000 to Route 85 Realty Corporation. Board members signed the deed to make the sale final.

Selectmen unanimously granted the transfer of the liquor license held by Kevin Coady for the former Doc's Sports Bar & Grille at 340 East Main St. (Route 16) to GENECSII, LLC at 350 East Main St. Attorney Joseph Antonellis explained that the new location is where the Imperial Buffet was located.

Imperial Buffet – now known as Sky Buffet – moved from its 350 East Main St. location into the former Doc's site at 340 East Main St.

Virginio "Gene" Sardinha, Jr. – whose family owns the commercial plaza at 350 East Main St. and numerous Dunkin Donuts restaurants in the area – will be the manager at the 350 East Main St. location, Antonellis said.

Because the liquor license for Doc's is still listed as going with the 340 East Main St. location, the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission could not let the liquor license for the Imperial Buffet be moved to Sky Buffet until the license for Doc's is moved, he explained.

Sardinha is talking with several people about locating a new restaurant at the 350 Main St. location, Antonellis said. Two want to take the whole location and one wants part of it, he said. If a restaurant chain comes in, he and Sardinha would come back in the future to transfer the liquor license to that chain, Antonellis said.

Selectmen voted to approve three things: the license transfer, the change in location and naming Sardinha as manager.
