SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A Sioux Falls developer looking to build a large apartment complex on the site of a century-old urban farmstead plans to seek a compromise with neighbors who aren't pleased with the idea.

Lloyd Companies is buying the Lacey Estate and earlier asked the city to rezone the property to make way for an apartment complex with six buildings and up to 143 units.

More than 150 property owners in the area formed an opposition group, citing concerns about such things as increased traffic.

City planners and the developer on Tuesday asked the City Council to delay action on the rezoning request to provide more time for dialogue with the Shape Oak View opposition group.

The Argus Leader reports the council won't take up the matter now until Sept. 13.
