The City Council on Tuesday delayed a vote on a subdivision with 153 new homes that is being planned at Dayton Boulevard near Gadd Road.
Councilman Chip Henderson said he thought problems had been ironed out, but some concerns were expressed at the meeting about the GreenTech proposal.
Romeo Bravo Properties owns the 48.8-acre site.
Allen Jones of ASA Engineering said a geo-tech study will be carried out on the steep slopes.
The main entrance would be off Dayton Boulevard with a secondary entrance off Allen Road.
The plan includes 1- and 2-story residential dwellings fronting on an internal road network with a clubhouse and open space.
Neighbor Eddie Bowman called it "the best plan we've seen" but said there are concerns that a number of other homes can be built on steep slopes nearby.
It is the fifth plan offered for the site.
Former Councilman Chris Anderson, speaking for the developers, said the property referred to by Mr. Bowman is so steep that probably only a couple of homes could be built there.
