Joplin Schools poised to use eminent domain to relocate high school

“Aaron Doll believes the Joplin School District may soon begin condemnation proceedings to acquire three lots he owns near the high school.
District officials have said moving the high school, which also was destroyed May 22, to the south and west would take it out of the a flood plain and make it eligible for federal dollars to help with rebuilding.

The district earlier this month began eminent domain proceedings against one property owner near the high school, Cynthia Turner, of 2308 Iowa Ave. The district was granted a preliminary injunction blocking Turner from rebuilding, but Huff, superintendent of the Joplin School District, is optimistic he and Turner can settle the dispute through negotiations.”
