Charleston County plans to sell for $2.7 million a 758-acre property near Adams Run where the county had once planned a landfill.

The Sheppard Tract, as it is known, is off U.S. Highway 17 just north of Parkers Ferry Road, next to a property where a controversial construction waste landfill has been proposed by Tre Sheppard.

The Sheppard family sold the adjacent 758 acres to the county in 1992 for $1.5 million.

In December, County Council decided to put that land up for sale to assure people the county would not build a municipal waste landfill there.

The county received just two bids for the property and will consider the sale when council meets Tuesday.

Council members said Thursday that they want to consider deed restrictions or zoning changes to make sure a buyer could not use the property for a landfill, which would defeat the purpose of the sale.

The top bid was from Hunting Tract I LLC, and county officials said they don't know who controls that company.
