Neighbors who live near Linwood Avenue and East New York Street are upset over a decision by the Indianapolis Public Schools
Board to move ahead with plans to condemn seven houses near School 58. IPS said it might want to tear down the homes to make
room for building improvements and a parking lot at Ralph Waldo Emerson Elementary School. Tuesday night’s vote gave
the district the green light to use eminent domain. IPS Superintendent Eugene White said the current bus-loading system at
the school is dangerous.
