Chapman Bros. has abandoned plans to build an asphalt plant on Sherwood Road in Charlottetown.
The news came in the form of a resolution at council’s June public meeting on Monday.
The initial application meant the property had to be rezoned before the Souris-based construction company could move ahead. And, that meant a public meeting.
There was a tremendous amount of opposition in stories in the media and at the public meeting to the proposed plan.
Chapman Bros pulled its application before city council had a chance to vote on it, much to Mayor Clifford Lee’s chagrin. He felt the public had a right to know where council stood on the issue.
Regardless, it will now be a year before Chapman Bros. can resubmit the same application if it chooses to do so.
