Scope and Contents
The collection consists of Glenn Kappelman's personal files when he served as a court-appointed appraiser for various community development projects in Douglas County and Lawrence, Kansas. The records regard right of way, easements, eminent domain, and other projects in which the county or city were potentially taking over real property from private citizens. The court appointed three appraisers to review the planned work and impact it would have.
Projects that Kappelman appraised include the Mud Creek levee and other levees, Highway 59 and Highway 10 projects, 6th Street in Lawrence, the Lawrence airport (City v. Pine et al.), etc. The highway projects took place both in the city and the county. Files for each project may include copies of district court documents, copies of city ordinances, handwritten notes, correspondence, newspaper clippings, legal descriptions of real property and tract descriptions, etc.
