Joplin voters to decide on Memorial Hall funding and Project Launchpad
JOPLIN, Mo. – Voters in Joplin will get the chance to decide whether to fund renovations at Memorial Hall. The council Monday night voted to add a ballot issue to the April 2022 election asking whether voters would fund the 30-million dollar renovation.
In that same election, voters will decide the fate of “Project Launchpad.” The plan is to renovate the Old Joplin Library to serve as a business incubator and downtown office for Missouri Southern. The city will ask voters to help cover 10-million dollars for that project.
The council also added a ballot question to the August 3rd special election. It would extend a 0.25% sales tax for 10 years to fund storm water control and parks.
