Beckley to keep uptown hole, develop vacant site

Posted:

BECKLEY, W.Va. (AP) -- Beckley officials have decided to develop an uptown hole left by a fire that destroyed three buildings.

Media outlets report that Beckley Common Council voted Tuesday night to maintain ownership of the vacant property.

Council members had considered putting the property up for auction. Councilwoman Ann Worley says the property is too important to give up.

The January 2012 fire destroyed an attorney's office, a consignment shop and another building.
