HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION

Historic preservation is an important way for us to transmit our understanding of the past to future generations.  Renovating historic properties preserves the historic, architectural, and aesthetic character and heritage of a community or area and helps to provide a sense of place and continuity.

Eupora's local historic district was established in 2010 to offer protection and regulations to preserve the historic character and significance of the city.  This smaller historic district centers on the very most important and oldest structures in the city. 

HEALTH AND WELLNESS COMMITTEE

The purpose of the wellness committee is to plan, promote, increase awareness and factors contributing to physical and mental well-being.  

This committee is responsible for establishing programs and communicate to citizens and participants of programs the value of a wellness program and the benefits they can expect to receive.
