Although there still remains much vacant land in the middle of Joplin, much rebuilding has already begun on other lots. The Joplin Globe, March 28, 2012, reported that since the May 22 tornado, nearly 3,000 permits have been filed to repair or rebuild homes and 641 permits have been filed for new home construction.
If you have any question about a building permit you can check out the city of Joplin website. You can also call the Chief Building Inspector 417.624.0820 ext. 520. If there is a home for sale on which you would like more information, give me, Mary Plunkett, a call at 417-825-0142.
Thanks again Joplin for all your rebuilding efforts!
