Publish A List Of Taxpayer Owned Assets

    If you don't want to sell the land, then put it on a long 200 year lease. That way it can be developed by a 3rd party for a lower amount than being sold and still have some control in the future. Or earn regular income to lease the land. This would be a win win situation, as you would not be selling the family silver, just lending it out, to be returned if required, or released in the future.
