Council discusses selling properties in Goose Creek

Local News

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCBD) – The City of Goose Creek is in the process of considering selling off a number of residential lots the city owns. Some of those lots are currently used as green space.  

There are 42 lots in neighborhoods being looked at for possible sale. We’re told that many of them are being used as green space in Goose Creek communities. 

At the last city council meeting, Mayor Greg Habib said the city wants to look at selling some of these so homes can be built on them. Two lots in Ryan Creek border Scott Bullington’s property. He is very upset to see the lots on the city’s possible sale list. He said before he bought his home in 2010, he asked the city what was going to be done with the land, and they told him it was going to remain green space.

Mayor Habib said he even offered to buy the land to keep it green space, but the city said they would never sell it, and it would always be green space.

Tonight‘s workshop is getting underway at 6 o’clock here at the fire station headquarters off of Highway 52.
