The brouhaha over opening a quarry on the south slope of Humboldt Hill evaporated for the time being with David Gants withdrawal of an application for a conditional use permit.
Allen County Counselor Alan Weber reported the change in developments to commissioners Tuesday morning, to the relief of a small delegation on hand to argue against approval.
As reported in the Register Saturday, planning board members voted against permitting the quarry, which would be opened under a lease to Mid America Materials. Gant owns the land projected for the quarry.
