Announcements and New Information


 The Poplar Bluff Parks & Recreation Department will hold a public hearing on Monday, January 28, 2019, at 4:00 p.m. at the Ozark Foothills Regional Planning Commission, 3019 Fair Street in the Poplar Bluff Industrial Park to discuss its submission of an application for the FY 2019 Recreational Trails Program (RTP) of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.  The department is interested in obtaining all citizens’ input on the project.  Maximum participation is desired to reflect the community’s true desires and collect project comments.

 The department is requesting approximately $220,000 in FY 2019 RTP funds to complete Phase IV of the Poplar Bluff Greenways Project.  Specifically, the project will include construction of a new trail to connect an existing trail along South Westwood Blvd., (which now ends just north of the Missouri Highway 53 and U.S. Highway 67 intersection) to the Shelby Road Extension Trail, and then heading east onto the intersection of Highway 53 and 11 Street.  The total project cost is estimated at $315,000 with approximately $95,000 provided by the department.  The project will benefit the entire community, which includes 52.2% low/moderate-income persons.  

 Department staff members will be present to answer questions at the hearing.  All citizens are encouraged to attend and comment.  For more information, or for special accommodations, contact Director Clark Allen at (573) 686-8645, or
