Message From Our CEO


Welcome to our new website!  We are very proud to be progressing with this new look.  This site will give you a brief glimpse of our area and always keep you updated on attractions and events.  Poteau has a unique, synergistic, dynamic energy that keeps moving forward.  One thing that astounds visitors is that Poteau never does anything on a small scale.  You will see this as you browse through our membership directory and see the support of our businesses and organizations.  Take time to look at the places to visit, shop, stay and eat.   If you are looking at relocating to our area we will be happy to connect you with any resources you may need. We have areas for cycling, mountain biking, hiking, running, walking, sports that include soccer, baseball, softball, football and skate boarding. After being dubbed the city that is “above the ordinary”, Poteau has definitely sustained the altitude.    There is nothing too big or small for our community groups,  civic organizations, local businesses and our many volunteers.  You will see the results as you enter our city. 

Come see us anytime, no RSVP needed.
