Eight proposals received for Beattie House


Eight proposals were made for the Beattie House, one of Greenville’s oldest structures. However, the public will have to wait to see which will be recommended to City Council.

The Greenville Local Development Corporation, a nonprofit group that works as an arm of the city on economic development projects, had been scheduled to discuss the proposals, which were submitted through sealed bids, on Thursday morning, but it did not have a quorum.

The GLDC’s next meeting is scheduled for Jan. 12, but it is likely the board will have a special meeting before then so a recommendation can be made to the Greenville City Council to consider at its Jan. 9 meeting.

Deputy City Manager Nancy Whitworth said all of the proposals called for the property to be used as a private residence, a bed and breakfast or an event venue. An event venue would not be permitted under the city’s zoning laws.
