ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A proposed residential complex that would include apartments and townhomes in a Northwest Albany neighborhood is now on hold.

City commissioners and homeowners in that neighborhood discussed the project for more than two hours at a public hearing, Tuesday night.

The developer says the project in the 3000 block of Old Dawson Road would bring in $500,000 in annual tax revenue, but critics claim it would create traffic problems and bring down their property values.

They spoke out, Tuesday.

"We are opposed to the neighborhood and this project. I am speaking on behalf the neighborhood," said one resident in front of commissioners.

Commissioners voted to table the rezoning request until the planning commission provides them with more information.

They plan revisit the issue next month.
