          Giving new life to an old home

          City officials see a future for the historic Cedar Oaks home. Local leaders say the home if rezoned could be used for venues such as weddings, showers and club meetings. While the interior of the home would limit guests to 49 people, the grounds area could host larger events. To make the home more attractive as an event location, the city’s conference and tourism staff asked the Oxford Board of Aldermen to allow the use of alcohol in the home during social functions. The aldermen approved the first reading and plan to hold a public hearing on Sept. 21. (September 14, 2010, Page 1)
