Oxford’s Main Street Alabama Citizens’ Work Session
Governor Robert Bentley made a visit to Oxford to check on the progress of its Main Street Alabama program. Oxford was selected as a designated Main Street Alabama community on June 2, 2014. And according to the city leadership, they hope that along with Main Street Alabama officials they will be able to impart a sense of the flavor, history and pride, as well as preserving the past, and re-establishing a sense of community. Governor Robert Bentley says he is looking forward to how the program will pay off for the city in the coming years. The strategy session involved residents of Oxford making selections on what they like most about their city and also commenting on what they would like to see changed. Main Street Alabama is a nonprofit organization that began in 2009 and incorporated in 2010 to serve as state coordinator of the Main Street program.
