The Evanston City Council is scheduled to consider three development projects when it meets Monday night.

It’s expected to take a final vote on the proposal by Mather Lifeways to build new continuing care retirement communities on the site of its two existing buildings at Hinman Avenue and Davis Street.

The aldermen have made several revisions to the proposal approved by the Plan Commission in December.

They include increasing the building setbacks from Davis Street and adding a partial 11th floor to the north building to compensate for the increased setback, requiring a $125,000 annual payment as an easement for a tunnel under Davis Street to link the buildings, and strengthened provisions to give Evanston residents priority for financial assistance at the facility.

The Church Street Village proposal to build 41 townhouses on the former Hines lumber yard at 1613 Church St. is scheduled for discussion and an initial vote Monday as is a proposal to replace the Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation building at 303 Dodge Ave. with a new three-story facility for the congregation.
