RANDOLPH, Vt. (AP) - A property at the Randolph exit of Vermont’s Interstate 89 remains up in the air four months after a proposal for a major development there was withdrawn.

Vermont Public Radio reports (http://bit.ly/28TAQiQ ) developer Jesse Sammis hasn’t put the 172-acre property up for sale because he still intends to put a development there. He says it’s a project he’s worked on for 40 years.

Sammis withdrew a plan that included a mixed-use development of more than 1 million square feet.

He says he expects to have further discussions with environmental groups to reach a compromise that would allow him to submit a new plan.

Sandra Levine of the Conservation Law Foundation says the group plans to continue seeking opportunities to provide more permanent protection for these “valuable farmland resources.”
