Main Street Program

On March 25, 2014 the Oxford City Council took the first step to participate in the Main Street Alabama Program by issuing a letter of intent.  Through an application process the City of Oxford on June 2, 2014 was selected to participate in the Main Street Program.  Through this program Oxford hopes to revitalize the downtown area by attracting potential business owners to open their businesses there and to create more jobs.  This will also allow existing businesses to expand.  By participating in the Main Street Program Oxford hopes to draw more people to shop, eat or visit downtown Oxford.

On June 26, 2014 Oxford held their kickoff for the Main Street Program on the steps of the Oxford Performing Arts Center.  The next step for Oxford is to hire a director for the City's Main Street Program.

Rod Harris began on August 25, 2014 as Oxford's Main Street Program Director.
