Oxford Commons fire station has final site plan approved

The City of Oxford Planning Commission approved the placement of a fire station near Oxford’s newest development during their regular meeting on Monday.

The site plan and final plat approval was granted during the meeting. The site plan item was part of the administrative approval portion of the Commission’s agenda and did not have a public hearing. The plat approval had a public hearing, but no discussion took place before being approved.

Located on F.D. ‘Buddy’ East Parkway North between Highway 6 and Sisk Avenue Extended, the fire station will be a one-story, 4,194 square foot building. It will be 30-feet, 6-inches in height and positioned 1,900 feet north of the new roundabout at University Avenue and ‘Buddy’ East Parkway. There will be direct access from the fire station to ‘Buddy’ East Parkway as well.

The City of Oxford will purchase the lot from developer David Blackburn and Louise Waller, and the station will service eastern portions of the city.
