After meetings with County Executive John R. Leopold and property owner William Berkshire, a spokesman for the retail giant noted that despite making several concessions, "it has become clear to us that there are various views about a project of this size and scope at this specific site and its relationship to the County's long-term development profile."

"We felt, therefore, that it is in the best interest of all to withdraw our pending site development plan," Brian Hopper, a Wal-Mart official, said in a statement."
