I'm excited to be a part of this. The event was organized by P.J. Moffett, one of my associates here at Real Estate One. This has been her brainchild for a couple of years, and she along with her team, have put in a lot of long hours to make this event a success. P.J. calls it: "A true demonstration of partnership. We will display Ypsilanti's finest in education, homes and community spirit."
Event goals are to raise awareness of what Ypsilanti has to offer new visitors, prospective university students, as well as prospective area home owners. The event is also designed to raise the city's visibility. Events scheduled throughout the 10AM to 2PM time period include:
- Explore EMU: Eastern Michigan University's open house attracts potential high school and transfer students to visit EMU and meet with academic and admissions advisors, take a campus tour, and apply. Then, they can hop on a free shuttle to visit Downtown and Depot Town. Visit: http://emich.edu/explore for more info.
- Open Houses: Stop by SPARK East, located at 215 W. Michigan Av to meet representatives from schools and neighborhoods, learn about incentives for house hunters, pick up maps of homes for sale. Visit: http://openhouse.ypsi.com for full details.
- Depot Town and Downtown: Discounts will be available to participants at the EMU Student Center and at the SPARK East location for restaurants, retail and other services in Downtown and Depot Town. Shuttle services will be available between the Student Center, SPARK East and Depot Town.
