The New West Willow Neighborhood Association was formed in 2015 and, ever since, the future of the Ypsilanti Township neighborhood has become brighter.  Long-time resident, association member, and neighbohood watch activist Janice Williams provides a look at living in West Willow and building to something greater.

When Concentrate Media reporter Sarah Rigg was writing about Ypsilanti Township's master plan for 2040, she learned that there are nearly 30 neighborhood watch associations currently operating in the area.  So, she dug a little deeper into this fact for this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi."  Sarah and WEMU's Patrick Campion talk about the association with local neighborhood watch leaders Jo Ann McCollum and Maurice Stovall.
