County accepting bids for surplus property

2 properties designated for workforce housing

From staff reports

Beaufort County is accepting bids on two properties located at 600 Wilmington Street and 1407 King Street within the City of Beaufort. Bids must be submitted no later than 5 p.m., Friday, May 27, and must be for the purchase of both properties.

The County is specifically interested in selling the properties for the purpose of establishing work force housing and/or affordable housing. In evaluating offers, the County Administrator will review and consider the purchase price as well as the proposed future development of the property. Therefore, the County encourages individuals to submit any supporting documents for work force housing and/or affordable housing development with their initial offer.

All offers will be reviewed by the County Administrator and a final recommendation will then be made to County Council for the sale of the properties. The County’s ability to sell the properties and the approval of an offer to purchase are contingent upon Beaufort County Council’s approval through the form of an ordinance and public hearing.

By submitting an offer here, the County is under no obligation to sell the properties and cannot sell the properties unless Beaufort County Council approves the sale of the properties through an ordinance and public hearing.
