Oxford is Growing

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.

Online information: Vision 2037 online

Oxford’s Double Decker Bus Tours

One unique thing about Oxford, MS is the Double Decker Bus that travels through town. It is a tour bus with an open-air upper level, friendly driver, and informative tour guide.  I witnessed the end of a regional Ole Miss Rebels baseball game from the top of the bus last year. Hotty Toddy; Rebels won!

Riding the Double Decker Bus is a fun thing to do when visiting our town so plan to schedule a tour.

New Ole Miss students and their families attending the orientation activities this spring and summer can also tour the town on this bus. Don’t miss the opportunity.

Vegetable Gardens in Oxford

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.101_0422_00

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.

Finding A REALTOR

Whether you are buying or selling, you want to work with a REALTOR you can trust.  You have confidential information, unique needs and personal property you want kept safe.

Interviewing a REALTOR is a great idea.  Put some important questions and concerns on paper, call a few REALTORS in the area and set a time with each one to interview.  Find out what they can do for you.

Not all REALTORS are the same and you will want one that you feel comfortable telling your confidential information to.  You will want a REALTOR that will put you first and do what it takes to sell your home, business or land or find you something new.

Moving out of town or out of state? You may not know a REALTOR where you are moving to, but certainly know one in your current city.  Ask for a referral.  Brokers and agents have a network around the country and can find you a qualified and motivated REALTOR in the town you are heading.  Don’t be afraid to ask.

Need a REALTOR?  Contact me at 662-404-0816 or use the form below.  I will tell you how hard I will work for you.  I can also find you a REALTOR out of town.
