The Sussex County Council delayed action on the proposed Arbor-Lyn development.
There was a proposal to reduce its density.
But the four council members present wound up in a 2-2 tie.
Council member Joan Deaver was not present to break the vote.
The development would include single family home, townhouses and condominiums.
WBOC reports that council member George Cole said he was concerned about traffic congestion with the proposal’s density.
Project manager Roger Gross told the council that the density was similar to nearby developments.
