Oxford Planning Commission

Student housing boon in Oxford

Two more large $36 million developments were approved by the Oxford Planning Commission that are geared to student living. The Retreat and Blackberry Hills developers both offered to donate $12,500 and $10,000 respectively to the Oxford University Transit system to be included on the bus route. Both developments are veering away from typical apartment complex settings and proposing more single-homes and townhouses. (April 10, 2012, Page 1)

                Tree compromise OK’d for parking lot

                The Oxford Planning Commission reconsidered and approved a variance Monday to the owners of Oxford East Shopping Center that will allow them to plant fewer trees in the parking lot than required in the city’s landscaping ordinance and granted a parking lot variance  to Rainbow Cleaners, allowing them to have fewer parking spaces at its new spot than required in the city ordinance since most of the traffic is short term and the drive-through window reduces the need for parking. (December 14, 2010, Page 1)

                  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)

                    Parking lot owners: tree law costly

                    Planting trees can be costly, especially if you are the owner of a large parking lot. Operators of the Eastgate Shopping Center are requesting city officials to allow them not “comply” with Oxford’s landscape ordinance. To comply with the ordinance some 48 trees would have to be planted which would cost Eastgate owners an additional $190,000. (July 23, 2010, Page 1A)
