Xanterra abruptly withdrew its Kingsmill expansion plans Tuesday with no explanation, according to county Planning documents.
Xanterra’s local attorney, Vernon Geddy III, sent a brief letter to county planners Tuesday asking them to “withdraw in entirety the rezoning portion of the referenced applications and all portions of the master plan amendment portion of the applications.”
But the move might not signal defeat. Geddy said Xanterra, which owns Kingsmill Resort and hopes to build 207 new homes along the Country Road, will “continue to work to address issues that have been raised” and file a new application “in the near future.”
Still, the news pleased opponents, roughly 100 of whom turned out at a Planning Commission meeting earlier this month to speak out against the project.
