Monument School District Plans To Buy Ranch Through Eminent Domain Drew National Attention

By Dave Rose

Lewis-Palmer Monument School District 38 is having second thoughts about its plan to use condemnation to acquire the Wissler Ranch and build a new high school on the property.

The school district has come under heavy criticism from critics of condemnation.

87 year old Marie Wissler lives on the ranch and doesn't want to sell it.

District 38 says its taking a second look at several alternate sites it previously rejected.
