Zone change considered

        Cincinnati City Council's neighborhoods and public works committee will hold a public hearing Nov. 27 to discuss a zone change request for 3156 Glenmore Ave. in Westwood, site of the former St. George Hospital & Care Unit.

        The 11-acre parcel, owned by Glenmore Partners LLC, is under consideration for development as a seniors campus. The property is zoned IR (institutional residential) for use by hospitals and universities. The owners are seeking a change to R-2(T), which would allow for multifamily units.

        The area surrounding the development is mostly resi dential.

        Area residents have expressed concerns over building more multi-units in this neighborhood. The Westwood Civic Association and the city planning commission have recommended the zone change.

        According to senior city planner Ed Mangold, the neighborhood and public works committee is made up of three City Council members, who make recommendations on zone change requests to council.

        Council has the final say. That could come as early as the next day, Mr. Mangold said.

        The hearing takes place at 1 p.m., in council chambers at City Hall, 801 Plum St.
