Ottumwa Historic Preservation Commission to Hold Community Meeting


The City of Ottumwa Historic Preservation Commission will host a community workshop for the Historic Preservation Plan from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Thursday, March 7, 2024 at Hotel Ottumwa.

“All Ottumwa residents are stakeholders in this plan,” said Commission Chair Dennis Willhoit. “So we really hope to have strong public participation.”

The purpose of the Historic Preservation Plan is to assess Ottumwa’s historic preservation policies and make recommendations for strategies that will promote preservation-based economic and community development and heritage tourism.

Workshop attendees can expect an update on planning progress so far, as well as an opportunity to share their interests, experiences, and recommendations for preservation in Ottumwa. The Ottumwa Historic Preservation Plan is being completed with the assistance of the Chicago-based planning firm The Lakota Group and with financial assistance from the Ottumwa Legacy Foundation.
