Ypsilanti Township 2040

The Charter Township of Ypsilanti is excited to launch a community-based, master plan process called "Ypsilanti Township 2040". Ypsilanti Township 2040 will create a shared vision for the future of Ypsilanti Township. The process will result in three, crafted plans: the Master Plan, the Parks, Recreation Plan/Non-Motorized Plan and a new and improved Zoning Ordinance. These documents will reflect the recreation, arts, shopping, housing, agriculture, jobs, transportation, etc. to be developed in Ypsilanti Township by the year 2040.

The Master Plan is a general statement of the Township's goals and policies and provides a single, comprehensive view of the community's wishes for the future. A sound Master Plan helps ensure a logical development pattern that will result in a highly desirable community in which to live, work and recreate. The plan includes recommendations for land use, residential densities, transportation improvements, community facilities and preservation of natural features. A plan allows residents, business owners and developers to make investments with a reasonable expectation of what will happen in the future. In essence, the plan represents a balance between the sometimes competing interests of the environment, individual land owners, and the community overall. Municipalities in Michigan are required by law to have a valid master plan. The Township adopted the Master Plan in 2007 with an update in 2014.
