Speaking up Works!

On February 17th at the Ypsilanti Township Board meeting, three West Willow residents spoke regarding drug houses in our neighborhood. This was the outcome: Drug Activity at a rental house is not accepted and a warning letter will be sent to the landlord and his/her property will be padlocked for a year. This is of course after the police have been involved. Lieutenant Jim E. Anuszkiewicz was present and spoke to the West Willow residents after the meeting. He said he was going to make sure this is looked into and dealt with sooner then was planned. West Willow is on the Washtenaw County Sheriff's high priority because we spoke up, that is what he said. If you want to hear this first hand his number is: 734-714-9907/

Please come out to our monthly meeting today. They're held the 3rd. Monday of each month at the CRC (community resource center, 2057 Tyler rd.) at 7-8:30pm. Come out and meet more of your neighbors and get updates from the police, fire, township and Habitat. There will be updates from our newly formed action groups that are making positive plans to make West Willow into a greater place to live. It's also a time for you to share your concerns, get help from others and be a part of this years goal settings. We need your input to understand all the concerns and needs. CHANGE will not happen unless the RESIDENTS step up, make it happen and keep it MOVING.  The building will be extra warm tonight and hot beverages for all. Park in the church parking lot for your convenience. You may contact me at 483-8195 if you have questions or look up other board members on the information pages. SEE YOU TONIGHT.
