The Luck Stone Corporation has decided to not dig a rock quarry in the northern part of Dinwiddie County -- at least for now.

The company withdraw the conditional use application it submitted last year on Friday.

Last month, CBS 6 reported that a group representing hundreds of homeowners was opposing the project, because of concerns about blasting noise, potentially lower property values and increased traffic.

A representative for Luck Stone said they still believe a quarry in Dinwiddie will create a positive economic and fiscal impact, and that the company is still interested in investing in the county.

“We were humbled and energized by the numerous positive comments shared about our company by the Commissioners and community members at the Planning Commission meeting last month,” Luck Stone Land Development Director Ben Thompson said/
