The Planning Commission voted 5 to 1 to table a measure to revoke a conditional use permit for the Wetlands and Wildlife Care Center until late November.
Commissioner Bob Biddle dissented and Commissioner Jan Shomaker was absent.
The center cares for sick, injured and orphaned wildlife native to California.
Revocation of the permit would require the center, which has been operating since 1998, to close. The center has yet to fulfill some conditions for the permit set by the city.
