    MILFORD - One comprehensive plan is quite enough for Milford Township, just now. The township supervisors, who only this fall completed a two-year effort with Milford Borough to produce a new joint comprehensive plan, passed on an offer to get involved in another one Monday evening. The offer came from the Lackawaxen-Shohola Citizens Advisory Committee. Those two townships are beginning a joint plan. The letter made prominent reference to their plans to include an open space, recreation and greenways plan in the process... and was a notice of intent to seek a piece of the county’s $10 million recreational bond. The township/borough plan calls for joint recreational development between the two Milford governments. Prior to the school district’s recent announced purchase of the Santos Farm property, Planning Commission Chair Kevin Stroyan advised the supervisors begin coordinating recreational plans amid existing and planned facilities in Dingman and Matamoras. The letter was sent to Milford and four other adjoining townships. Reading it, Secretary Viola Canouse noted, “ We just finished our plan.” Supervisor Gary Williams directed that a letter to that effect be sent to the advisory committee in reply.
