EMU helps Ypsilanti with alternative downtown parking
YPSILANTI - Eastern Michigan University will provide extra parking spaces to the city of Ypsilanti during reconstruction of the North Huron parking lot.
Residents and customers of downtown Ypsilanti can utilize non-metered spaces at the north end of the North Washington Street parking lot.
“We are pleased to offer access to the available spaces in EMU's parking lot for residents and business patrons during the reconstruction of the City's parking lot. Our goal is to be good neighbors and this is one example of many ways that we collaborate and share resources with the City,” said Juanita Reid, vice president for university relations at EMU.
“EMU saw the need for the alternative parking and worked to make this arrangement possible for the downtown district,” said Jennifer Goulet, DDA director. “This is another great example of the types of collaborations that are happening between the University and the City.”
Construction, which began in May, is scheduled to be completed in August.
Maintenance and policing of the EMU-owned portion of the North Washington lot will be assumed by the City of Ypsilanti until Aug. 15, 2005.
