— A developer's controversial plans for downtown Raleigh are on hold.

The Raleigh City Council passed Neal Coker's plan for shops and restaurants at the corner of Wade Avenue and Oberlin Road to another committee Tuesday afternoon.

The group wants more detailed information about the impact increased traffic would have on the area.

Neighbors have protested the plan they claim would add thousands of cars a day to already crowded streets.
