Happy spring everyone!

Wow! What a kick-start to March! Powerful punch to EEV and beyond . . . Spring in Michigan is always a mix of joy and fear and this past March was no different! High winds, snow and, of course, the selected power outages across the Village along with the entire Detroit Metro area lasted for "too many" days... Thanks go out to so many neighbors, friends and extended families for playing host to all of us affected. At the April General Meeting we will be covering "Storm Control" outlining measures to stock up on critical items as well as suggestions for coping with the impact of sudden storms, food and power loss and generator safety information.

Our apologies for the cancellation of our March General Meeting – it was in the middle of the wind storm, and the Board thought it best to ensure everyone's safety. We lost approximately six trees - some big, some small. Many thanks to our residents and to the City's Forestry Department for a quick cleanup. DTE was busy for days after the storm restoring power to the residents across the Village. The very last area in our neighborhood to come back on line on Tuesday, March 14th, was the Grayton/ Bishop/Wallingford area. WHAT TROOPERS!

Please be aware the City of Detroit has continued its program reviewing homes (private and rental properties) for blight violations such as roof and gutter issues,dangerous walkways, fencing, garage structures and garage doors,

About East
English Village

Community

With many amenities - quick access to downtown Detroit and neighboring cities, good shopping choices, public/private schools and an active, engaged community - the neighborhood is an excellent choice for families and individual homeowners. The neighborhood association hosts activities including contests, home tours, garden club, annual garage sale and a holiday party. Established residents and new neighbors meet monthly to discuss issues, successes and general neighborhood information. The mutual support of neighbors and feeling of community is the heart of our neighborhood.

Diversity

East English Village prides itself on the diversity of our community. We are one of the most racially mixed neighborhoods in the City of Detroit. Civil servants, blue collar workers, retirees and professionals from different ethnic groups, religions and sexual orientations have all found a welcome place here.

Unique architecture

First developed in 1913, most of the distinctive brick homes of East English Village were built in the early 1930s through 1950. The solid architecture and high quality materials used in the homes continues to attract residents who value the charm and character of older homes.
