I own (+/-) 3.1 acres next to the largest public school in KY. Any ideas for a low-cost startup?

I am weighing the cost of going into business for myself with the real estate I own. The new schools will open August of 2010. I don't have much in terms of liquid capital but I have significant equity in the property. Any suggestions for a low-cost startup company where I can quickly generate positive cash flows from the soon to be pent up demand.

FIRST APPROACH SCHOOL DISTRICT TO SEE IF THEY HAVE ANY SHORT TERM STORAGE NEEDS- OR SPECIFIC OVERFLOW REQUIREMENTS - INPARTICULAR SELF STORAGE OR RECORS STORAGE - GET A COMMITMENT OF SOME NEED THAN TAKE TO BANK FOR EITHER SELF STORAGE OR OTHER DISTRICT NEED FOR A PORTION OF PROPERTY -
OR YOU CAN JV WITH A SELF STORAGE COMPANY TO DEVELOP AS PARTNER - YOU HAVE EQUITY - OR I CAN ARRANGE IT FOR A 7% EQUITY SHARE AS A LIMITED PARTNER IN THE DEAL - LET ME KNOW - YOU WOULD HAVE TO GIVE ME AUTHORITY TO NEGOTIATE ON YOUR BEHALF - SO I CAN PRESENT THE DEAL TO YOU WHERE WITH YOUR EQUITY - THERE IS LITTLE OR 0 CASH LAID OUT AND A BUSINESS IN PLACE --TOTALLY YOUR CALL

Orthodonist office might work. We have a similar situation here in our town. A small strip of land was developed across the street from an elementary school it stays rented with tutoring service, a child psychologist, and an orthodonist office. There are two other tenants, but I don't recall what they are at present.
