As a Certified Local Government (CLG), the City of Plattsmouth partners with the National Park Service (NPS) and the Nebraska State Historic Preservation Office (NeSHPO), a division of the Nebraska State Historical Society (NSHS), to oversee preservation efforts in Plattsmouth, Nebraska.
The Plattsmouth CLG has set a goal of completing an Intensive Level Survey of the town as part of a long range plan to better understand their local resources. Divided into phases that cover different areas of the town, this project will review and recommend local buildings for potential listing on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). After further consultation with the NeSHPO, these buildings could then be listed and owners could take advantage of a number of tax incentive programs. Additionally, this information could be used by the City to promote its heritage.
