OUR STORY

About West Willow
Welcome to the Nextdoor West Willow Neighborhood. West Willow is a historical neighborhood in Ypsilanti Township Michigan, comprising approximately 1200 single family homes. The community is historical because of why it was built. Street names such as Chevrolet, Buick, Desoto, Zephyr, Studebaker and more are not by accident. In fact, former Executives of Fisher Body and General Motors automobile plants, used to stay right here in West Willow -- and as a result, this community housed many of these workers. Over the years, although West Willow has changed, the sense of community has not. West Willow maintains a strong Neighborhood Watch Organization, founded in  1990 - over twenty-five years ago. The New West Willow Neighborhood Association (NWWNA) is the only Community Based 501.c.3 non-profit within Washtenaw County. This action was done with the leadership of former NWWNA President N. Norman in 2004, and continues today. Due to the NWWNA's non-profit status, programs such as the Summer Youth Enrichment and Learning Camp, Family Movie Night, Cardio-Drumming, Citizens Patrol, CRC (Community Resource Center) Improvements, partnership with Habitat for Humanity - Washtenaw County, the Community Signage and more have been possible, and maintained under the leadership of former President L. Mealing, former Vice-President - now President J. McCollum and the NWWNA Executive Board. In 2009, West Willow was the first neighborhood in Ypsilanti Township to partner with the Ypsilanti Township Board of Trustees with a test program to install cameras at the five entry and exit points of the neighborhood, in an effort to decrease crime. Success with the program came less than one year later with the arrest of an individual targeting children at school bus stops. Since this point, over 20 communities in Ypsilanti Township have followed West Willow's Lead in requesting Community Security Cameras to be installed within individual Neighborhoods. There are many reasons to be proud to be a West Willow Resident, whether it's the sense of strong community involvement, innovation, historical context, neighbors-helping-neighbors, or the beautiful brick ranch style homes displayed throughout the neighborhood. Filled with the most wonderful green scenery, a beautiful neighborhood park, walkable spaces and access to freeways - West Willow is the place to be. Sincerely, The Community of West Willow - Ypsilanti Township, Michigan
