Tree programs help Oxford improve environmental impact

As fall settles over Oxford, leaves float to the ground, their rich hues of vermillion, burgundy, apricot and gold creating a blanket of color across Miami University’s campus.  Thanks to two tree programs initiated in 2018, Oxford may be seeing even more of these trees over the next few years. The Oxford Urban Forestry and Tree Replacement programs are two funding sources aiming for effective tree management in Oxford. 


Hope you’ve stretched out, because it’s time to exercise your civic duty!

It’s the first Tuesday of November, which means citizens across the country are heading to the polls to vote in local elections. And while national media outlets are already laser-focused on next year’s presidential election, it’s our job as your local neighborhood news outlet to tell you it’s important to vote on what’s on the ballot *today*. Federal elections may dominate our national political landscape, but our local government officials are far more accessible than our state or national representatives. This is especially true for Oxford, as our local officials are heavily involved in the community.   The officials elected into office today will enact policies that directly impact our day-to-day lives here in Oxford, dealing with everything from parking tickets to long-term sustainability in Oxford.
