OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — The city of Oxford is preparing to rezone about 160 acres near the site of the Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi to accommodate the growth that is expected to come with the new $300 million medical center.

A judge recently approved the city's annexation of the property located just south of the new hospital. No structures are on the property.

The Oxford Eagle reports a public hearing on the zoning the property is at 5 p.m. July 14 at City Hall.

The land where the new hospital is being built has not yet been annexed into the city.

In 2013, a judge allowed Oxford to annex the land for the hospital. The case is on appeal to the Mississippi Supreme Court. The court has not yet ruled.
