Oxford to host meeting on Park Drive plans

By NEMS Daily Journal

OXFORD – City officials will hear residents’ views next Tuesday at 5 p.m. at City Hall on plans that could transform the Park Drive neighborhood.
As part of its Pathways project, the city has long planned to add sidewalks and bike lanes to the hilly, curving street that links Sisk Avenue and Highway 30.
Recently, survey stakes were placed to mark the outer bounds of the proposed project, some of which were as far as 43 feet from the center line.
City Engineer Bart Robinson said he would work within any board decision but reminded them that eliminating either the sidewalks or the bike lanes would counter a policy they set recently.
