Mayor Duggan visited, answered questions at EEV meeting

Greetings! September was a busy, busy month in EEV. We had the pleasure of hosting Mayor Mike Duggan at the general meeting. The Mayor was invited to review the past year for our residents as he had done in 2016. Mayor Duggan covered several important topics of concern responding to questions from our Village residents.

EEV residents can now get a plaque showing when the house was built.

These included: the continued challenge of affordable car insurance coverage in the city, tree trimming which will be starting this fall, home repair grants and loans, current issues with Detroit Land Bank and its commitment to taking care of inventory, development outlook for the East Warren corridor, and Veteran awareness within city government with the need to understand service animals and their importance.

We also reviewed the City of Detroit’s rental code property program with BSEED's Inspector Terry Martin and heard details of EEV’s upcoming Angels Night Coverage and Potluck.

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.
