Ed Herr, Chairman Oxford Mainstreet, Inc.

Can you believe Oxford Mainstreet has been serving the Oxford community for twenty years? Oxford has seen many changes and improvements in that time! The streetscape and façade programs have provided aesthetic updates, while our events and services have invited thousands of visitors who have come to Embrace our Charm.

More changes are in our near future because of the hard work and determination of the OMI staff, Board and volunteers. A new Transit Facility is to begin construction in 2018 which is a significant piece to our economic and community development strategy.

In addition to the twenty-seven businesses that have been in the BID for over ten-years, twenty-seven new and strong businesses have opened in the past five years, creating over 190 new jobs. This vibrancy has current and prospective investors in our town very excited.

Our future’s so bright, we gotta wear shades!
