The Milton City Council voted Monday evening to delay action on a request by Crescent Resources to build a 256-unit apartment complex on Deerfield Parkway. The 5-2 vote came after several council members questioned whether a high-density residential complex would cost the city more in services than it would deliver in property taxes.
City Manager Chris Lagerbloom told city leaders that Milton is developing a land use formula to help determine cost-effective zoning, but the study will not be ready for another few weeks.
The application will be reconsidered in August.
