About the Township
Welcome to the Charter Township of Ypsilanti! We invite you to take a look at everything YTown has to offer.
Located on the eastern edge of Washtenaw County just east of Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti Township is the largest township in Washtenaw County and the seventh largest in the State of Michigan. Boasting more than 53,000 residents, Ypsilanti Township covers 32 square miles and is only a short drive from Detroit Metro Airport.
Combining our proximity to I-94, US-23, Willow Run Airport and Detroit Metropolitan Airport with the serenity of our recreational areas, Ford Lake and a diverse selection of residential neighborhoods, residents and employers alike have realized the potential of our township.
Through strategic partnerships with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, Ann Arbor SPARK, Michigan Small Business Development Center and the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Regional Chamber of Commerce, Ypsilanti Township strives to be at the forefront of economic development while enjoying the offerings of our neighbors. We have three educational institutions that are just minutes from our community; Washtenaw Community College, Eastern Michigan University and the University of Michigan.
Blending the vibrant and bustling downtown of Ann Arbor with their extensive arts and culture and the historical treasures of the City of Ypsilanti, YTown enjoys the benefits of both. From the multimillion-dollar investment in our latest business park and our state-of-the-art library facilities, to the Township Board’s ongoing commitment to infrastructure improvements and expanding our recreational offerings, we are moving forward.
Ypsilanti Township is governed by an elected seven member Board of Trustees. The Supervisor, Clerk and Treasurer are full-time administrators that manage the day to day operations of the community; four elected Trustees serve part-time on the Board. All Board Members are elected at-large and play an important role in setting policy and managing the financial aspects of our community.
The Township employs approximately 90 people full time, as well as several part time and seasonal employees to staff the various departments that comprise our organizational structure. We also have police services, a fire department, a district court and a water & sewer department, all within our YTown community! We are proud of the services that our employees provide to residents and businesses. We encourage you to explore our website to learn more about everything that YTown has to offer!
