GREENSBORO, N.C. — The request by a development company to rezone 6.77 acres at the corner of Hobbs Road and West Friendly Avenue has been withdrawn.

The City of Greensboro was notified Friday that CAP Development LLC had withdrawn the request.

The site was speculated to be the future site of a Trader Joe’s, prior to Trader Joe’s saying they were no longer interested in the proposed site or Greensboro.

Community members from Friendly Coalition have protested the rezoning proposal to build at the corner of Hobbs Road and Friendly Avenue.

The rezoning request was expected to be considered at the Greensboro City Council meeting on March 18.

    Do you want to live right across from a McDonalds, a CVS, a Trader Joes or any ultra-busy retailer? Yes, re-zoning to commercial wouldn’t prevent a McDonalds or any other fast-food joint to locate there. Re-zoning to commercial is also a breach of the promise by the city council to ensure that the land west of Hobbs remain residential. And it’s not like there isn’t plenty of excellent commercial space available throughout our area. If you want it so much, let’s re-zone your neighborhood to commercial !
