Community Input Sessions in South Ypsilanti

input session

Washtenaw Urban County is planning on additional community investments in neighborhoods located on the Southside of Ypsilanti and we hope to work with local residents to make decisions through a collection of community input. 

In 2019, we held a series of community conversations, which resulted in the completion of a the new playground in Parkridge Park in Fall 2020. Washtenaw County Office of Community and Economic Development (OCED) and the City of Ypsilanti engaged over 100 residents living around Parkridge Park to identify and prioritize what type of investment they want to see in their community and residents voted that a new playground in Parkridge Park was their top priority.

If you live in the following neighborhoods south of Michigan Avenue, we hope you will join us for an upcoming community session:

  • Bell Kramer
  • First and Second Streets
  • Heritage Park
  • Parkridge Park
  • Forrest Knoll/Arbor Manor
  • Worden Gardens
