Ryan Homes laid out a plan to build 85 homes in the neighborhood.

The property has been zoned for Residential Planned Development since 1986.

The original plan would have made Zengel Drive a connector between Far Hills Avenue and Clyo Road.

At the end of last month’s meeting, the Centerville planning commission passed a preliminary plan onto city council. They made three recommendations to the first plan.

City council members tabled any decisions Monday night and said they will take it up again May 12.
