In July, 2015 the Joplin City Council approved the Capital Plan for the expenditure of Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funds focusing on the rebuilding and recovery work following the May 2011 tornado. This is the fourth of six similar projects in the recovery area that focuses on repairing damaged public infrastructure in residential areas. Work will occur from April 2018 to April 2019 with any roadway work being suspended between the months of November thru February.
