The Buckhead Forest neighborhood convinced the city of Atlanta Zoning Review Board to defer an application for a church youth center for 90 days.

With a cooling off period in place, neighborhood representatives hope they can convince Peachtree Road United Methodist Church that their current plan would set a bad precedent for future zoning cases.

The negotiations are ongoing.

The church wants to construct a 50,000-square-foot youth center, a $9.2 million investment.
