Alderman Vi Daley says she's waited enough and will vote to approve the redevelopment of the old Lincoln Park Hospital.

Daley hosted five large community meetings and several smaller meetings, and she says it's time to move forward.

At a hearing Monday night, the developers unveiled changes in hopes of accommodating the concerns of residents. Many remained opposed to plans calling for a fresh market store, medical office building and about 160 residences.

The city's zoning committee meets March 22.
