Historic Downtown Oxford will be transformed into an inviting, pedestrian-friendly destination in the coming months, starting mid-October. The City of Oxford has already invested over $300,000 in utility relocations beneath the streets and a projected $2.2 million in new sidewalks, green space, benches, and lighting that is historically appropriate to the character and charm of Oxford’s quaint downtown.
It is important to note that even though downtown may seem inaccessible for the coming months, daily operations will continue for every business. The Oxford Performing Arts Center will continue to bring first-class entertainment to its stage, Southern Girl Coffee will be roasting and serving its signature coffee, and Stinson and Howard Fine Jewelry will continue serving customers during the holiday season.
