Downtown Joplin Alliance

Downtown Joplin Alliance is focused on the economic vitality of the downtown Joplin, Missouri, through historic preservation.


Downtown Joplin Alliance is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the revitalization of the downtown Joplin, Missouri, community as a thriving, safe and attractive center of art, history, enterprise, commerce, culture, residence and entertainment.

We guide community-based revitalization efforts focusing on downtown Joplin. We follow the national/state “Main Street” model to harness the social, economic, physical and cultural assets that set Joplin apart and ultimately lead to tangible outcomes that benefit the entire community.

We leverage both the art and science of downtown revitalization to create a better quality of life for all. The result of these efforts is a community with strong social cohesion and economic opportunity; a downtown that supports and sustains innovation and opportunity; places where people of diverse perspectives and backgrounds come together to shape the future.

Ultimately, we strive to create a place where people love to be. A place that values its history but looks forward, ready for the future.
