Touted as the “Cultural Mecca of the South”, creativity abounds in Oxford as musicians, artists and writers alike find inspiration in Oxford’s rich history, small town charm and creative community.  As a result of its popularity, Oxford has experienced a lot of growing pains over the past couple of decades.  

Oxford’s Vision 2037 Plan is a comprehensive plan that will guide growth and development in the community for years to come.  This plan is a reflection of the desires and aspirations of its authoring community.  A successful comprehensive plan must have the support of the people who do business in the city or those who call it home.  Vision 2037 is a document which represents a shared vision for the residents of Oxford, a guide map towards a future that values and protects the distinct character of the community, as well as one that appropriately and proactively accommodates new growth.
