Oxford

Public’s help wanted to improve Pathways

Taking advantage of upcoming events, the Oxford Pathways Commission hopes to get feedback from the community about the upcoming phase three of the Pathways project.
The commission will present the ideas to the community during Green Week on April 20, which is being celebrated as Transportation Day, and on City Day on April 23.
Then a public hearing will be held to discuss phase three plans on the kickoff of Bike Week on May 17 at 5 p.m. in Oxford City Hall.
