OXFORD – Something sparkling and new is in the Village of Oxford - a beautiful wooden, hand carved sign marks the entry to the Village. The grand, 8’ x 4’ blue sign with gold lettering is located across from the Blueox Corporation on Route 12. Promote Oxford Now (PON), Rotary and the Village agreed to share in parts of this sign and park project and all wanted it up this Bicentennial year.
The Village of Oxford had plans for a welcome sign such as this for several years. Some impressive designs were drawn up eight years ago but the plans and function of the sign changed as local organizations contributed differing opinions. The sign idea was at a standstill.
