Ypsilanti Freighthouse: You’re All Invited

Comments (0) 10:00 AM posted by admin |

The Historic East Side Neighborhood Association will be having its Spring Meeting this coming Sunday, May 3rd in the cafe of the historic Ypislanti Freighthouse (located at 100 Market Place in Depot Town for your convenience).

That’s right. I said it. Freighthouse.

The focus of the meeting will be a discussion of the upcoming Ann Arbor to Detroit rail line. In May, Ypsilanti City Council will be making a decision on the placement of a temporary boarding platform and shelter. The platform will either be located in front of the Ypsilanti Freighthouse on the west side of the tracks or at the Maple Street parking lot on the east side of the tracks. No matter what side of the tracks becomes home to the platform, there are going to be issues that need to be worked out. This meeting will provide the residents of the neighborhood the opportunity to weigh in on how they believe either location will impact parking, traffic circulation, and their effects on nearby homes and businesses. Your elected officials will then be able to take your concerns back to Council and make the best decision for the neighborhood.

Also on the agenda for the meeting will be a status update on the progress of the Luna Lake project as well as plans for upcoming Board of Directors elections that will be held this fall.

Finally, as a special bonus, there will be a social hour in the Ypsilanti Freighthouse Café beginning at 6:00 pm for anyone interested. This will be the perfect opportunity to catch up with neighbors after the long, snowy winter.

This was all made possible by the hard work of the City of Ypsilanti staff working in conjunction with the Ypsilanti Fire Department and the City’s insurance adjuster as well as the Friends of the Ypsilanti Freighthouse.

Be there or be square.
