City of Joplin
The City of Joplin was one of the first five communities to join the Missouri State Historic Preservation Office’s (SHPO) Certified Local Government (CLG) program. In fact, Joplin was recently recognized for its 30th Anniversary as a CLG. As a CLG, Joplin has the responsibility to enact a historic preservation ordinance, appoint a preservation commission, conduct an ongoing survey and inventory of historic properties, and conduct public outreach and education. Additional information about Joplin’s Historic Preservation Commission can be found here.
