Did the Park District "confiscate" the Peoria Stadium?

"... the Park District and IDNR, via the 40 year lease... have in effect confiscated the School District Stadium site." 
Is that the kind of language the Park Board President, Tim Cassidy, was referring to when he said he is very upset with the way talks of a sale to Walmart have been handled? Cassidy accuses Walmart representatives (John Elias, et al.) of trying to come between the Park District, the City and the School District in order to get its way...



“Wal-Mart’s strategy was to divide and conquer.
I personally resent that.”
Tim Cassidy, Park District Board President

School District vs Park District about to get "ugly"?

Now that the Park District has officially rejected any offers to relinquish it's hold on the Stadium, will the next step for the School District be moving to condemn the Stadium; or will they seek ways to declare the intergovernmental agreement "illegal"...
