Lafayette County, home to Oxford and Ole Miss, has grown by 11.8 percent in the past four years making it the county with the most growth in Mississippi.
The University population is expanding, bringing more full-time residents to the area to service them. New businesses have added to the growth.
The City of Oxford recently launched an update to their long-range plans, called Vision 2037, which will guide the city planners over the next several years on issues such as transportation, community, land use, housing, preservation and more. This meeting took place last week.
Two new meetings are scheduled to allow for public input.

One of my hobbies is gardening. I’m a Jr Master Garden instructor and have a Master designation in environmental education, backyard wildlife habitats, birding and more. I enjoy gardening and teaching how to garden.
This week, I will be presenting a garden talk at the Oxford Lafayette Public Library on Thursday, February 26, at noon. I’ll be giving instruction on how to use the library’s Seed Lending Library, and getting started with your summer garden.
It is time to start planning so if you have interest in growing vegetables in your yard this year, call to reserve a spot at this event. Lunch will be served so the library staff will need to know how many to plan for.
New to Oxford? Come out to get acquainted with Zone 7 growing.
Did I mention there will be door prizes?
The library is located at 401 Bramlett Blvd. Phone number: 662-234-5751.
