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.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters is asking Xavier University to revisit the situation that prompted it to expel basketball player Dez Wells.

A grand jury has decided not to indict Wells over allegations of sexual assault. Deters says an independent review was presented to the grand jury yesterday.

As a freshman, Wells started in 32 games last season and was the fourth leading scorer. He would have been Xavier's only returning starter. 

Here is a copy of the news release from Joe Deters:

Entrepreneurs are a growing force in our economy, so Xavier University has started X-LAB (Xavier Launch a Business), a competition between creative minds to earn mentoring from Xavier’s faculty, students and others with the expertise to help launch their idea. Mark Perzel learns more about this opportunity from Dr. Joe Carter, director of Xavier’s Entrepreneurial Center.
