Cincinnati Council will likely approve a zoning change Wednesday needed for a mixed use development near the Xavier University campus. 

The 20-acre site is located at the corner of Dana Avenue and Montgomery Road in Evanston. 

Liz Blume is the Executive Director of the Community Building Institute, which is a partnership involving Xavier. 

She said the development will include apartment housing for students plus retail and office space.
