The Historical Preservation Commission is a nine member municipal board made up of seven members appointed by the mayor and a member of the city council and the city planner as non-voting members. The commission works to maintain the city's Certified Local Government status and works with the state Historic Preservation Office. This Commission is staffed by the Planning Department.
The commission was established by city ordinance in 1988. Its purpose is to help to identify historic, archaeological and architectural characteristics of Poplar Bluff, which represent elements of the city's cultural, social, economic and architectural history; to designate landmarks, historic places and districts and to educate the public on matters of preservation. Commissioners are appointed for three year terms and may serve three terms.
