Common Sense Isn’t Always the First Thing You Can Think Of

Guilford County Schools owns an unused school in the Lindley Park neighborhood.  But what to do with it?

From the article in the Carolina Journal:

Another issue is whether the school system might prefer to hold the property as an asset for possible future use. The board frequently airs concerns about expanding enrollment and the need for new schools, not to mention the increasing cost of land in Guilford County. To own land in the middle of the city is a true asset, noted system chief operations officer Leo Bobadilla.

What do you think we should do?  If it was up to me, I’d hold onto the asset, and lease it out for now.

One response to this post.

    Apparently this school (Braxton-Craven Elementary) has been sitting vacant for years now. I would like to know why the lease was terminated with Guilford Child Health (?) in the first place. Especially since they are the people who are interested in releasing or buying it now. But I haven’t seen anything about that in the Rhino or the N&R although the Rhino has had a lot of coverage on this issue.
