President's message:

Wake up time!

Wake up time - it's ticket time for some residents! Hopefully spring has sprung and you’re taking advantage of it! We are happy to announce another partnered EEV/Detroit Land Bank Home Tour – Sunday, May 17 from 1-5 p.m. We continue to see great properties in demand and sold very quickly and new faces moving in. The home values in EEV, like other great areas of the city such as the University District, Grandmont Rosedale and Boston Edison Historic District, are continuing to rebound. We continue to work on securing Emma’s houses (foreclosure properties).

As we continue to clean up the village from winter 2014-15 with volunteer help, we will be focusing our upcoming opportunities at the April and May meetings toward the May 2015 Eastside Motor City makeover. Please contact your street rep and block captain to help coordinate your block cleanup. Please be a part of this great, fun-filled day.

To be very blunt, some homeowners/ renters have issues with the fall leaves still not having been picked up by lazy neighbors. It's everyone’s job to help keep our streets clean. Landscape bags will be picked up again this season starting on April 16; please remember only paper leaf bags are approved for use. Read more -

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.
