Perrysburg Township trustees scheduled a vote on a zoning change for 41 acres northwest of Thompson and Neiderhouse roads for June 5.
They continued a public hearing that lasted more than three hours last night.
Residents told representatives of Miller Diversified the 88-lot subdivision does not fit in the area surrounded by five-acre lots.
"The trustees have a moral obligation to these people in this room who live in the area," resident Barbara Harbauer said.
Residents were concerned about the effect on traffic, the schools' possible annexation, and possibility of more dense development than what was proposed.
Developer Kirk Miller said the maximum density for the site is fewer than four units per acre.
Township attorney John Donahue said an attorney for the developer had called him to discuss possible legal issues with the zoning request.
The developer's attorney said he had advised the township about the standards by which the trustees must make their decision.
