    Good Morning Maria, I caught this article from Milford the other day. Maybe you could use it as “precedent” for Downtown Farmington issue with the Queen Anne houses? http://www.hometownlife.com/story/news/local/milford/2016/03/30/proposal-move-historic-village-home-build-condos/82381586/ Take care!
