"Where we're at with this project is pretty much where we were before," said operations manager Tim Haapala. "Mr. Neilan has not fulfilled his plan or his alternative mainline extension agreement."
Davis said she was worried that Neilan might be allowed to develop several lots that lie below existing Jamestown homes, as he has requested. A number of those homes have had slip problems, she said.
City Engineer Chris Knox said several of those lots have been identified as "critical" lots, subject to special restrictions, and deemed another lot unbuildable.
"We've been dealing with Mr. Neilan since 2005," Davis said. "Whether in phase one, two, three or four, he has not accomplished what he set out to do. I don't want to be responsible for someone buying a critical lot, and the people above them have slippage too."
In other business Wednesday, commission members:
* Approved a plan to rename Kennawa Drive to Curtis Price Way, in honor of the former Charleston High School basketball player, musician and Charleston Job Corps director who died earlier this year. Kennawa Drive leads to the Job Corps center.
The street renaming, initiated by Job Corps staff and Councilman Andy Richardson, must also be approved by City Council.
* Agreed that an effort by the Charleston Urban Renewal Authority to re-adopt the Downtown/Old Charleston and West Side urban renewal plans is consistent with the city's comprehensive plan. Both plans expired several years ago.
Several commission members said they want business people and property owners in the affected areas to have input in the matter, as some may not want to be under the CURA umbrella.
