Long Lake Ranch, a development south of State Road 54 calling for 1,900 homes and a mall-sized shopping complex, failed to get approval from the Pasco County Development Review Committee.
At its Thursday meeting in New Port Richey, the committee, composed of the county's top administrators, called for more time to fine tune documents giving property owners the right to develop the 1,079-acre site.
The land, which begins about a mile west of U.S. 41 in Land O'Lakes, belongs to brothers Nick and Peter Geraci. Their proposal has dragged through four years of government review that included a pair of lawsuits.
