Following an executive session that lasted about an hour Thursday morning, May 3, the Chesterfield Economic Development Authority unanimously approved a resolution to withdraw a rezoning application for a proposed megasite on 1,675 acres in the southern part of the county.

Several EDA members said the county should continue looking into developing the site, which currently has residential zoning. The EDA had been asking for industrial zoning to attract a manufacturing business.

The EDA, which had planned to purchase the property from the Shoosmith family, suggested that the county purchase the land.
