After decades of maintaining the property, nearly 2.4 acres of city-owned land was deeded back to the Shawnee Public Schools District, Interim City Manager Eric Benson said during Monday's Shawnee City Commission meeting. The site in question sits along the north side of the high school, where the school's tennis courts have been a fixture for years.
