Enjoy the rest of the summer!

Residents are busy sprucing up the neighborhood

Summer Greetings – I hope the summer of 2017 continues to be a good one and that you are able to stay cool – it’s been a hot one and continues to be a challenging one. Please continue to check on neighbors and pets when outdoors. It’s a pleasure to report that even with summer upon us, residents are well underway redoing driveways, replacing garages and porches and painting along with landscaping and planting.

Don't miss the annual EEV Garage Sale Aug. 12-13!

I would like also like to thank the caring residents who have helped each other with cutting grass at Emma House properties this past month.

The city started to clean streets again this past month. Please note: tickets are issued at times for cars that have not been moved for the cleaning. Several cars were parked on Bishop and Yorkshire.

Big thanks to our EEV Soccer team – they spent a Saturday cleaning up our Fitness Park.

About East
English Village


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.


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.
