A vote on a proposed planning document for the coastal community of Cardiff was postponed Wednesday after a majority of the Encinitas City Council questioned whether the plan would place too many restrictions on development.
"It's not my intention to diminish your good work or to redesign this tonight," Councilman James Bond told supporters of the proposed Cardiff-by-the-Sea Specific Plan. "I just don't want us to end up with some unintended consequences."
Fellow Councilman Jerome Stocks and Mayor Dan Dalager said they had questions that would require additional city staff review of the document, which proposes special development restrictions in the Cardiff area.
Teresa Barth abstained due to a conflict from her ownership of a Cardiff property.
