President's Report:

Reflecting on 2017: Our 41st year!

Closing out 2017 with style, thanks and inspiration...

Well, the rest of the holidays and the end of the year are upon us once again, and I must say we have had another interesting year celebrating East English Village being a "Neighborhood of Choice".


This year we recognized our 26th year as East English Village and 41 years as an association starting out as DEAR – Detroit East Area Residents. Thanks to so many residents who make us great each day, stronger as a community and proud to be involved in this great city. This year we saw properties sell over $200,000 – we look forward to additional growth and expanded retail development programs focused on East Warren and Harper in 2018.

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.
