A planned development in the 7000 block of Shallowford Road that includes townhomes as well as a commercial component has been delayed after neighbors objected.
Guy Cherwonuk is seeking to develop over 13 acres in the vicinity of Preston Circle, Rivendell Lane and Gunbarrel Road.
City Councilman Darrin Ledford advised the developer to continue talks with opponents to the project.
A two-month delay was approved by the Planning Commission.
Craig Sarine, a Preston Circle resident who said the basement of his home has been flooded seven times in 10 years, expressed concerns the project would exacerbate that issue.
He also cited traffic and noise problems and said residents did not want commercial to encroach on that north side of Shallowford Road at that location.
