The Grand Junction City Council has voted to delay their decision on a proposed set of changes to the 7th Street Historic District.

The decision came down around 11:15 p.m., more than four hours after the council meeting began.

Dozens showed up at City Hall Monday night to voice their opinions about a new overlay plan for area, that would allow homes there to become apartment units and operate things like a bed and breakfast, daycare, or other business.

Some residents of the Historic District say their neighborhood was meant to be a single-family residential area, and they've fought for years to keep it that way.

City Council members say they'll revisit the matter after they've had more time to review it.
