Frank Visco, a Lancaster developer who is also state Republican Party chairman, abruptly withdrew Monday from a proposed agreement with the city of Lancaster to acquire land for a new courthouse, after the proposal was attacked as unfair to other developers.

Under the proposal, the Lancaster Redevelopment Agency--which has the same members as the City Council--would have loaned Visco $1.5 million.
