LAND DISPUTE: DOT Proposing To Take Farm Land
The fate of an 85 year old family produce farm is in the hands of the state. The Iowa Department of Transportation is proposing two re-designs of Highway 330 in Jasper County.
The diagonal highway between US 65 and Jasper County Road F-17 cuts through the middle of Larry Cleverly’s farm.
The DOT says the re-design will make the road safer however, blueprints show the DOT taking ownership of three homes including Cleverly’s as well as 220 acres of land.
The project is projected to cost between 10 and 15 million dollars and completed by 2016. Cleverly says he agrees the road should be safer but doesn’t think the state should re-structure the road.
“Let’s put up signage. They have signs in their shops that say dangerous intersections I’m sure. Let’s put up a couple of lights,” says Larry Cleverly.
The DOT will host a public meeting on June 3rd at the Baxter Community Schools Commons at 5pm.
