Growing the housing and amenities available in Milford means an expanded workforce. New residents mean new customers for local businesses, which in turn increases tax revenue. With more revenue, cities can invest more in roads, public facilities, schools, the arts and parks. Learn more about how we would like to grow Milford and bring more amenities closer to home.

What could this development include?
The South Okoboji Estates development would include 400+ affordable single and multi-family housing options, which is greatly needed in Milford. It is projected to generate an incremental $1MM/year in property tax revenue.
Okoboji Sports Campus is a year-round sports venue that would host regional tournaments to generate revenue for an area through hotels, meals and gas. The average family spends over $800 per weekend when traveling for sports tournaments.
