The city of Joplin is another step closer to a massive $800 million dollar proposed master development plan for the city.
City leaders okayed proposals for master planner to proceed with plans to change the face and scope of the city for years to come.
Among those proposals are a new library with a movie complex, a minor league baseball stadium and more than 1400 homes which would be built in the city's tornado zone.
City council will also apply for some federal grants to help with the proposed disaster recovery effort.
Council says it will be from three to five years before any of the projects are ready to go.
