The developers of Canyon Springs have withdrawn the project’s Environmental Impact Report, choosing to review the subdivision under newer town policy.

The 289-acre development east of Glenshire had drawn criticism for falling under the town’s old general plan, which many concerned residents felt didn’t properly address current issues, most notably traffic.

At a planning commission meeting Wednesday night originally scheduled to review the completed Environmental Impact Report, Canyon Springs developers instead withdrew the document, voluntarily taking a number of steps backward in the development process.

The decision was met with applause from Glenshire area and other residents, who took the opportunity at the public meeting to raise concerns they hope to be addressed in the revised environmental study.
