The city of Ypsilanti has made the first cut in the effort to be home to a four million dollar DTE Energy solar array.
City Council on Tuesday is expected to approve a lease and easement for the project, part of the next phase in the selection process.
DTE Energy is looking for a place to install a one-point-three megawatt solar array, and the city has proposed locating the array on four-and-a-half acres of land that once served as a landfill, north of I-94 and east of Huron Street.
High school students in the new Ypsilanti Community School District will attend Ypsilanti High School next year. Middle school students will attend classes at what is now Willow Run High School and the adjoining Willow Run Intermediate Learning Center. Hear more from WEMU's Bob Eccles.
