An offer has come in to New Milford officials, for the first time in years, by a developer looking to take over 25 Church Street.  Mayor Pete Bass told Connecticut Insider that the town-owned building is appraised at $295,000.  David and Scott Benincasa have offered the full appraised value in order to build up to 20 high end apartments.  New Milford bought the building, which was constructed in 1920, back in 2001.  Former Mayor David Gronbach’s administration moved Gallery 25 into the old railroad station, and nixed plans to move the probate court there, but switched to the parks and rec building.  Bass said in the published report that he will continue to negotiate and bring the offer to the Town Council soon.  If approved, it would then go to a Town Meeting.
