Greentech has withdrawn from a controversial residential project on Mercer Street in Lupton City.
Chris Anderson said he does not know what will happen to the property, but he said the owner no longer wants to pursue the current plan.
It included 23 single-family lots on 2.6 acres.
Mr. Anderson said there had been meetings with the community for a year, but no agreement was reached. He said the group had dropped the number of lots after starting out at 30.
Now, he said, the group would "go back to the drawing board."
Frank Claridy, who said he has lived in the same nearby home for 70 years, said it is "a unique community." He said the group "is not anti-development, but nobody I have talked to is in favor of this."
He added, "We know Greentech's reputation in some instances has preceded them. We know the reputation and we don't like it."
Patty Mitchell said she was concerned about "the over-whelming number of houses" platted for the site. She said, "It's just too dense."
She said it would be "pencil stick homes" and not the "cottage" style along from the old Dixie Yarns.
Another speaker said, "We're scared of RTZ (townhouse) zoning."
He said, "Lupton City has gone through hell for the last seven years" with the partial demolition of the old mill and leaving the remainder in unsightly rubble with potential environmental hazards.
