Town Administrator Louis Celozzi said officials will notify the state that the town does not support a proposed 180-unit apartment complex on East Main Street.
Celozzi said selectmen objected to the development primarily because it would create rental housing, rather than owned units.
"The rental units are sometimes not conducive to long-term stability," he said.
The town's ability to affect the project, however, may be limited because Newton-based Northland Quarry Pond LLC has proposed setting aside a portion of the units as affordable.
Under state law, towns with less than 10 percent affordable housing have limited ability to reject projects that create more affordable housing. Milford's affordable housing stock is just over 7 percent, Celozzi said.
