Hot summer greetings to all!

I hope the summer of 2016 continues to be a good one and that you are able to stay cool and hydrated and healthy!

It’s been an extremely hot July with little rain and this continues to be a challenging issue. Please continue to check on neighbors and pets when outdoors or just driving the area.

In anticipation of the Landscape Contest, as well as a sense of “pride of place,” residents are well underway upgrading driveways, replacing garages and porches and painting along with planting flowers and landscaping. A big thank you to the caring and committed residents who have helped our community by cutting grass at Emma’s House properties this past month. The city continues to replace sidewalks that have been damaged by old tree issues, and I believe we can all agree - What a difference this has made to improving our neighborhood!

Our annual EEVA Garage Sale will be held on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 6-7, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It’s a great way to clean out and start anew with regard to decorating or making room in the garage and basement for all the things you want to keep but have little space for anymore. Or if you have the space and are seeking that special “treasure” or “deal,” please come out and support the sale and visit with your neighbors! Contact Kathy Roddie (residential@ eastenglishvillage. org) if you can lend a hand. for the garage sale this year. All sales must be registered and a small advertising fee ($5/day) paid for by Friday,

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.
