President's Report:

Anticipating a happy & prosperous 2018

As I write this New Year’s piece, EEV is in the final round hoping to win Curbed Detroit’s Best City neighborhood. As many of you know, we won the Cup for 2016 last January. This recognition resulted in lots of positive press and interest in our neighborhood. Please vote at and keep watching for updates on our Facebook page – we deserve to win again! Post-holiday greetings to you and your family.

I hope the holidays were safe and happy ones. The new year always brings high hopes for so many things, personally, professionally and spiritually to change for the better or to resolve what has not been finished for yet another year, but perhaps that’s why it’s called a New Year’s celebration. Let's hope for the best in 2018 and make each day count a little more than the last one.

I want to thank all of our volunteers on the board and all of our residents for helping the neighborhood continue to grow. I know some days are more challenging than others, but working together has enabled us to continue to grow as a Village within the city structure. Read more

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.
