The Upper St. Clair Planning Commission tabled the vote on a proposed small subdivision between Engelwood and Hidden Timber drives on Morrow Road.
The planning commissioners told the applicant, Dr. Andrew Zahalsky of Peters Township, to work with township employees on road placement to optimize sight distance.
"This is an area (Morrow Road) that there is difficulty with sight distance," said Scott Brilhart, director of community development.
Some planning commissioners also voiced their concern about the plan to create a homeowners association to maintain stormwater management.
Zahalsky is proposing a road with seven lots that would end in a cul-de-sac. Planning commissioners told him to keep his options open and consider a plan with fewer lots.
Zahalsky plans to build a new house for his family on the proposed cul-de-sac by September 2013, but with Thursday night's delay he said he "might be too optimistic."
"We're trying to make this a beautiful, desirable neighborhood that will be an asset to the community," Zahalsky said.
