Options like paying the annual rate (even with the help of other entities), or a land exchange (which is complicated in general, but further so by the high appraised value of the property) are not off the table, but are problematic. An easemet, as evidenced by the success so far of Kidsport (see the Interlake article linked to in the following post), is seeming like a viable avenue for us to pursue.
What we'd need:
- One or more public agencies to partner with us
- Super-human fund-raising and grant finding abilities
- Continued interest and support
- Letters to the council property manager (link to email contact in the Lease notice letter)
