NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) – The developer involved of the proposed building of a Wegmans grocery store, has asked the city to delay the vote on the project.

The following is an excerpt from the letter.
“The applicant received various comments from City Council at its work session on April 26, 2016. The applicant continues to work diligently to respond to these comments and requires additional time to prepare the application for consideration by City Council.
