Waynesboro City Council received the Planning Commission recommendation, but tabled the matter.
The 53-acre housing development would include single and multi-family style homes. Council decided to wait until its Aug. 12 meeting before making it final vote.
Silver Creek site owner Jim O'Hare says he feels real good about his proposal being approved.
"I think we did everything on our part to tell the neighborhood that we would be good neighbors and we will do a good development," said O'Hare. "I believe since we got the recommendation from the previous board, I feel very good about our possibilities."
There was a proposal that came up from the Planning Commission about the possibility of the city buying the land, but the council said no they could not afford it.
