Ypsilanti Township invited community members to participate in a four-day master plan workshop called Ypsilanti Township 2040, held Oct. 16-19. The workshop, organized by township officials and facilitated by consultants from Carlisle/Wortman Associates, consisted of a mix of panel discussions, tours, and workshops. From these events and conversations, a vision for what Ypsilanti could look like in the next twenty years is emerging. Ideas for a walkable, vibrant downtown filled with retail, services, residential, and recreational opportunities were shared along with plans for abundant resources and events promoting community unity. A new conference center, improved public transit, and revamping the Gault Village shopping center also were explored as elements for supporting this vision of future prosperity.
