President's message:

Spring greetings!

Spring greetings – I hope so soon… Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Whether you’re Irish or not it’s a festive time in the middle of the seasonal change – hopefully leaving the winter blues behind and a moving forward to a much-welcomed spring.

Mayor Mike Duggan speaks at February's General Meeting.

This winter season truly has been a challenging one. As I write this article we are waiting for yet another blast of arctic cold of some proportion. Thanks go out to the neighbors who have given toward the seasonal fund, which helps clear the roads of heavy snow if needed, as it was in February. Please remember to shovel your sidewalks, not just for yourselves, but for the postal person and the many residents who walk the village. Removing snow from your driveway, etc., also shows the house is occupied and is taken care of.

Thank also go out to the many neighbors who have taken care of the empty property near them – shoveling the snow makes the property less of a beacon to thieves. On a positive note, we have welcomed many more owners; please remind them of the volunteer partnership for security and seasonal care – Read more -

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.
