President's Report:

Spring is here. . . Are you ready?

Join the volunteer clean-up April 7!

It's Spring clean-up time!

Spring finally arrived, and it’s a welcome change to the dullness of this past winter and its darkened days. Please join your Village neighbors at the annual EEVA Spring Clean Up kick off when we, once again, host University of Michigan student volunteers on Saturday, April 7. We will need 75 resident volunteers to help with the day’s goals and activities to help clean up the winter debris and clutter. The day starts at 10 a.m. We are meeting at 4240 Kensington for coffee and assignments. As we clean up various village sites, lunch will be provided for the entire team. Events will wrap up around 4 p.m.

We will need village volunteers to help host various assignments that day. Even if you can spare an hour or two, consider joining your neighbors in this group spring cleaning effort! Please sign up with Kathy Roddie, our Residential Chairperson, at residential@eastenglishvillage. org or

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.
