The current rent in One Dollar per year!
I am not sure the Scouts need to be 200k a year but One Dollar is ridiculous. The Scouts do not need to be receiving Welfare from the city. Raise the rent.
Did you miss the fact, that although the city owns the land, the scouts built the building in 1928, in return for the $1 year rent?

No, i did not miss the point.
But why should the scouts get free land from the city?

If that's true, and if there's a written contract formalizing that arrangement, then the city might be in breach of contract. But if it was a city ordinance or resolution, it can probably be unilaterally amended or revoked by the city.

Perhaps the city should just sell the land to the scouts for $1 a year.
Probably the same deviants who want to turn Episcopal churches into Bathhouses and Condos are the ones who want to take this landmark (it is eligible for national landmark status thus precluding alteration or demolitions) and turn it into a stain.
