A Place to Live, A Town to Love
Located in southwestern Connecticut, Oxford is a small, rural town that continues to grow and progress, even in today's economy. With a new state-of-the-art high school, major real estate and industrial development, infrastructure improvements, the Oxford Greens public golf course, numerous recreational parks and activities and a busy airport, there is a lot going on in Oxford.

More news from the wire...
Oxford residents and business owners enjoy one of the lowest mil rates in New Haven County. For the budget year 2011-2012, our residents approved our municipal town budget on the second referendum. In 2011, Oxford property revaluations yielded a decrease in property taxes for more than 80% of all households, leading to a slight mil rate increase, still well below neighboring towns who will experience revaluations next year. Oxford continues to "hold the line" on spending while providing residents with near same-level services as experienced in the recent past. Road improvements continue at a steady pace and economic development continues at a steady pace. Because of Oxford's fiscally-responsible government with a vigilant eye on cost-effective progress, the State of Connecticut and the Federal Government provide regular grant assistance to the town. Oxford is regarded as a "small town crown jewel" of Connecticut.
Oxford Road Improvements - Update
Road improvements continue in Oxford despite the downturn in the national economy. Of the 120 miles of roads in Oxford, some are in need of repair, and others require new safety features such as traffic lights, stop signs, turning dirt roads into paved ones and implementing new drainage systems for water flow issues. Dangerous curves, narrow roads, shoulder ditches, new warning signs and road patching also continue at the same rate as the budget year 2008, at no extra cost to tax payers...

Other Road Improvement News

• Accident-reduction grant received to allow the town to remove dangerous curve on Governor’s Hill Road outside of Old Church Road. Spring: 2011

What's New on the Website
The Town of Oxford's redesigned website was re-launched on Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2011 with a new look and new features.
The Town of Oxford's redesigned website was re-launched on Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2011 with a new look and new features. When the current Website Committee was appointed in 2008, the town's website was receiving about 40,000 - 50,000 site visits per year. In the fall of 2009, the town website was relaunched and by the end of 2009, the site attracted 110,000 site visits for calendar year 2009. Based on the current pace of monthly site visitors, the town's website will achieve 250,000 site visits by the end of this year, a 500% increase since 2008.

For the last 6 months, the Website Committee has worked with KD Interactive in redesigning the current website to one that offers an upgraded look, better navigation, and more user friendly features.
