City of Oxford - Comprehensive Plan Update:
The City of Oxford is currently in the process of developing a new Comprehensive Plan. This plan 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. Please click here to review the Comprehensive Plan page for updated information and materials as well as the Steering Committee materials.

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.
