Re: How would this work-property already owned by someone...

My first thought is for him to get the property appraised, and he gets
"credit" for the value of the property before any more work is done on it.
 Then he applies that credit toward his contribution toward the project.
 So if the property is worth $50K, and the work to be done is $150K, then
the total cost of the project is $200K.  Each family is then responsible
for paying $50K...and his is paid by his "donation" of the land.
