Happy St. Patrick's Day!

At the time of this writing, we have been experiencing beautiful balmy weather all week and anticipating the early arrival of spring. We've been fortunate so far (knock on wood) that our winter has been such a mild one because sadly our Snow Removal and Security coffers are down significantly.

PLEASE if you haven't already done so, contribute something to each of these funds. Monies not used in a specific calendar year for seasonal maintanance roll over to the next season. I think we can all recall recent past winters (2013-14 when 94.9 inches fell upon Detroit Metro area topping prior record of 93.6 set in 1880-81) and the snow seemed to fall non-stop.

A heartfelt THANK YOU to all the faithful residents who continually support our EEVA through funding and volunteering. We would not be the "Detroit Neighborhood of the Year" without your commitment.

Which brings me to our February meeting. We had an outstanding attendance with many terrific speakers providing lots of great information including


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.
