Infrastructure Improvement Initiative
Oxford has established several comprehensive plans to help move the City forward with a vision for our entire community.
Water Line & Sewer Line Improvements:
- Palmer Street
- Colemen Street
- Summit Avenue
- Grace Street
- Fairview Street
*Water interruptions may occur around the City as water lines are being abandoned, but residents and businesses should receive 48-hour notice if they will be affected.
Oxford Utilities Projects Map - attached is a map of the areas that are in the current construction project. This will enable citizens to know where the work is occurring within the City.
The Oxford Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 2009 and serves as a guide for city officials, planners, and citizens in making decisions about future growth and development in a coordinated fashion that protects the quality of life and small-town atmosphere in Oxford. The plan articulates a vision of how citizens would like the city to look over the next ten to twenty years.
Downtown Oxford has remained a vibrant business center with over 120 businesses. In 2014/15 the City of Oxford worked with downtown businesses, property owners, and citizens to build upon the recent NCSU study to formulate a long-term comprehensive masterplan for the downtown. The plan will address both economic/business development strategies as well as plans for a more pedestrian-friendly and attractive streetscape with additional parking.
