Pressure from people who live in the area near the intersection of Rockville and Manakin roads in Goochland contributed to the scuttling of a proposed housing development.
Wilton Acquisitions, LLC, applied to have an area zoned for agriculture changed to residential. The plan was to put up 191 single family homes on 98 acres of land.
Neighbors complained long and loud, arguing that the increase in traffic would be a threat to public safety.
Now, the rezoning request has been withdrawn.
