ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles City Council is expected to vote Monday on Lexington Club, a housing development proposed for a former industrial property on the city's west side.

Mayor Don DeWitte on Sunday said the developer requested action be taken.

The vote will come nearly a month after the Planning and Development Committee recommended the council reject an agreement allowing the developer access to about $6 million in tax increment financing funds to underpin the project.

The committee did, however, recommend approval in May of the project's preliminary plan, though it had a number of conditions.

Plans call for a mix of single-family homes and townhouses on the former Applied Composites site located north of Dean and State streets and between 12th and Sixth streets.

Many residents have publicly opposed the development. Some even wrote the city, and those correspondences since May 14 are included in Monday night's agenda documents.
