The rezoning request for Coggins Farm, a mixed-use development planned for a 169-acre tract in Riceville known as Old Coggins Farm, has been withdrawn by the developer, Coggins Farm LLC. It was scheduled to go before the Buncombe County Commissioners on Feb.18.
In an email to the Xpress, David Case, Coggins Farm partner and lead developer, said his company has requested that the zoning change application be tabled without prejudice to a later date.
“Regarding the zoning application, we asked for a delay because we are making some changes to our plan which will lower density and shift locations of several key uses,” Case said in a statement to Xpress. “We believe these changes are in the best interest of the project and also will be well received by some of the neighbors. As such, we feel that our zone change request at this point is premature.”
