It's the first comprehensive land use and growth plan for the city in decades.

The last time the council met members delayed a final vote to give their consultant time to look over the plan and vote was pushed back several times.

The 20-year plan has faced criticism. The New Chicago neighborhood sued the city for $10 billion because they believed it only benefited the wealthy.

That lawsuit was dismissed earlier this year.
