Ypsilanti City Council has approved a plan for key infrastructure needs such as streets, water, and sewer lines in the Water Street area.
Council voted five to nothing Tuesday night to accept the infrastructure plan.
Mayor Paul Schreiber says the city has now completed a couple of important steps to attract redevelopment to Water Street. Schreiber says originally the plan was to leave Water Street open for any proposal but he says the city has seen this approach left developers concerned about what could be built next to their project. He says being able to better define the parcels of land in Water Street should lead to more interest from developers.
