The survey is in and sealed bids will be accepted on two Main Street lots until Sept. 20.
McMinnville officials previously voted to liquidate the empty lots at 207 and 209 E. Main Street. However, a survey was needed. The properties were acquired by the city after a fire in 2008 destroyed the buildings on them, locally known as King’s Department Store and Locke’s Department Store.
Sealed bids will be accepted until 2 p.m. on Sept. 20 in the office of City Recorder Shirley Durham, located at 101 East Main Street, P.O. Box 7088, McMinnville, Tenn. 37111.
The lots will be sold together with a minimum bid of $25,000. Building construction must start within 18 months from the date of deed.
In addition to compliance with the applicable zoning and building regulations, construction must comply with the Historic District Design Guidelines for the city of McMinnville.
A copy of the survey with legal description of the lots is on file in the Planning and Zoning Office.
Advertisements will run in two editions of the Southern Standard: Wednesday, Sept. 6 and Sunday, Sept. 10.
