Ypsilanti To Hold Workshop on Affordable Housing Tonight

Herman and Kittle Properties

Ypsilanti residents tonight will have an opportunity to learn more about a proposed housing complex  in the Water Street re-development area tonight.  City Planner Teresa Gillotti says the developer is expanding the Water Street Flats project from its initial plan offering. Originally, the 12-million dollar development was to have 76-units of affordable housing. That figure is now 90-units. 

Construction on the project was originally planned for October of this year, but has been pushed back to March of 2015 due to the complexity of the project.  A purchase agreement for the property is expected to come before city council next month.

The City Council workshop will be held at 7pm tonight in council chambers at 1 S. Huron Street.
