The Planning Commission on Monday recommended approval for a large apartment complex at Summit.
Mike Price, representing the developer, said since the matter was deferred the project had been moved back several hundred feet from residents on Bork Memorial Drive and trimmed from 408 apartments to 300.
He said outer sections of the 23-acre property would be kept for possible eventual development of single-family homes.
A few buildings will be four story, while most will be three story.
Residents, including builder Bobby Adamson and UTC official Richard Brown, continued to speak against the project, saying it was out of character for the neighborhood.
