An attempt to rezone a 612-acre farm near the future Downsville Pike-Interstate 70 interchange has been withdrawn temporarily, officials said.
"We want to get some input from Pleasant View Heights residents," said William C. Wantz, an attorney representing the applicants.
Wantz said the applicants would work to avoid conflicts with neighbors of the property, some of whom have criticized the proposed rezoning.
Wantz said the rezoning request might be refiled by Feb. 3.
Larry B. Artz and Frank M. Artz filed the original rezoning request last year. They have a contract to sell the property to Orion Development Corp. of Columbia, Wantz said.
