Gunner Ranch West would bring nearly 3,000 new homes and businesses to an area just north of Children's Hospital, near Highway 41 and Avenue 9.

The board of supervisors says it needs time to do more analysis before giving the project a green light.

Tuesday's hearing will continue at a meeting scheduled for September 17th.
