            Woodlawn zoning change OK’d

            A change in the zoning for the area near Woodlawn subdivision was finally approved by the Oxford Planning Commission after months of discussion. The deal includes a land trade between the city and property owner in order to create a community park adjacent to the subdivision.

                    Is Oxford’s economy rebounding?

                    It may be, according to a couple of key indicators — namely, the city’s collections on sales tax and on the 2 percent taxes on food-and-beverage purchases and hotel stays. Compared to a year prior, December’s sales-tax collections were up 8 percent and January’s were up 2.6 percent. While collections are still down for the fiscal year, they’re moving in the right direction.
