The developer that has pushed for the expansion of the Newport Dunes resort and bemoaned the city's slow deliberation performed an about-face Tuesday, requesting that any decision on the project be postponed until after the November election.

Newport Dunes, which has been working to get approval for a 470-room hotel and 31,000-square-foot convention center, stated its new position in a letter sent this week to the City Council.

"We feel there is simply too much on the table, for both the community and the council, to allow for the extensive deliberation this project requires and the thoughtful consideration it deserves," stated the letter, signed by officials from the Dunes and Evans Hotels, the San Diego developer spearheading the project.

The City Council is expected to discuss the request Tuesday at its meeting.
