President's message:

Wake up time!

Beautiful spring flowers

Hopefully spring has sprung and you’re taking advantage of it! Our monthly meeting in March was again hampered by inclement weather; we ended up having a Saturday meeting. It was well attended by the Wednesday night crowd – thanks for coming out and being part of a busy Saturday.

At the March meeting our guest speaker was O’Dell Tate. O’Dell is the former president of Morningside (our neighbors just west of Outer Drive) O’Dell is now the District 4 Mayor's office Manager working with our City Councilman Andre Spivey. Congratulations and we look forward to continuing our work together to better the eastside of the City of Detroit.

We continue to work on securing Emma’s houses (foreclosure properties). As we continue to clean up the village with volunteer help, we will be focusing our upcoming opportunities at the April and May meetings as we sign up clean up volunteers for the May 10 Eastside Motor City makeover – each of your street reps and block captains will be coordinating block cleanups. Please be a part of the great and fun-filled day.

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.
