JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC) -

Charleston City Council unanimously voted on Tuesday to approve a 75-day moratorium on "gathering place" zoning. 

The zoning consists of a mix of commercial and residential housing space. 

The moratorium includes the Maybank Gathering Place near Folly Road on James Island. 

That project has had several public forums, petitions and meetings about the controversial site. 

Opponents say it's too big and will cause more traffic problems in the already congested area.

The 75-day moratorium would end on Jan. 27.
