The Ann Arbor News is reporting a leased land swap between the City of Ypsilanti and Eastern Michigan University.

The city will lease College Place to EMU at $1 for 99 years to convert the small street into a pedestrian area. And the university will lease the North Washington Street parking lot to the city at $1 a year for 99 years to provide 60 additional parking spaces in downtown. The plan also includes converting a small portion of Perrin Street into two-way street.

  1. Pedestrian malls and superblocks never go out of style!
