What would you pay

SWACgirl notes Augusta County's plan to renovate my boys' elementary school - after they've moved on. Oh well.
It's time for that school to get a facelift. Looks like it will cost a lot, but can the county get some of that money back?
Expanding Wilson would allow the county to close Ladd, located across the street from Wal-Mart and just off busy I-64. How much would a big plot of land in the busy traffic district go for? Probably not $15 million, but a big chunk of change.
It also gives options to Waynesboro and Augusta County for better traffic flow to newer retail developments east of Rosser Avenue. Build a road through the Ladd property and sell off some.
It will be interesting to see what develops.
