Meeting planned Thursday to discuss future of Washtenaw Avenue corridor
An open house to discuss the future of the Washtenaw Avenue corridor stretching between Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti will be held for business owners and the community on Thursday morning.
For months, planners and government officials have been meeting to formulate what they're dubbing a "re-visioning plan" to reduce sprawl and increase density along the five-mile route, relying on the rising demand for public transit and pedestrian-friendly connections.
On Thursday, the community is invited to drop by anytime between 7:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. at Paesano's restaurant, 3411 Washtenaw Ave.
The event will feature a series of stations with information on the project, as well as interactive exhibits that will allow people to weigh in on their visual preferences for development along the corridor, label areas with access issues, and other related concerns.
The Washtenaw Avenue corridor project is a collaborative effort between Washtenaw County, Ann Arbor, Pittsfield Township, Ypsilanti Township and the city of Ypsilanti.
More information, as well as an online survey, is available at www.WashtenawAvenue.org.
