PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A key vote on a much-debated Portland apartment complex project is being delayed again.

Portland’s Planning Board was slated to vote on the 445-unit project on Tuesday, but is delaying its decision at the request of Miami-based developer The Federated Companies. The Portland Press Herald (https://bit.ly/1BT4Ajx ) reports the company says it needs time to review and address the project’s conditions of approval. A city also pushed back a Jan. 27 vote on the project to give city planning staff more time to prepare materials.

City officials say there is not yet a new date for the meeting. The project first came up for debate five years ago and was scaled down after a lawsuit delayed construction. It is slated to be located just outside of downtown Portland.
