The owner of what used to be Iola Nursing Center faced a skeptical group of potential neighbors as he considers the fate of the old nursing home complex.

Shane Lamb, of Rural ReDevelopment Group in De Soto, invited neighbors of the sprawling facility on North Walnut Street to share their views at a Thursday gathering. More than a dozen showed up.

Their points echoed what they told the complex’s former owner when he unsuccessfully appealed for a zoning change earlier this year to convert the property into an apartment complex: they are universally opposed to seeing the land converted into a multi-family property.
