Museum Complex Plan Gets Surprise $1-Million Price Tag
A proposal to build a museum complex on the site of a Joplin hospital that was destroyed in the May 2011 tornado will require a $1 million payment for a garden and walking trail. The city of Joplin disclosed the agreement with the Joplin Redevelopment Corp. on Wednesday. The Joplin Historical Society says they were not told about the agreement when the group proposed building a museum complex on the land. They add that the obligation would make it difficult to put the project on the site.
