Columbus City Council tonight is expected to approve plans to build controversial new housing in the OSU campus area.

A developer wants to build townhomes and flats on the Church of the Nazarene site on King Avenue. Nearby residents who oppose the project say the homes catering to Ohio State University students would ruin the family atmosphere of the neighborhood.
