President's message:

Happy New Year!

Post holiday greeting to you and your family. I hope the holidays were safe and happy ones. The new year always brings high hopes for so many things, personally, professionally and spiritually to change for the better or to resolve what has not been finished for yet another year, but perhaps that’s why it’s called a New Year’s celebration. Let’s hope for the best in 2015 and make each day count a little more than the last one.

I want to thank all of our volunteers on the board and all of our residents for helping the neighborhood continue to grow. I know some days are more of a challenge than others, but as we all work together we continue to grow as a village within the city structure. We have had our share of issues this past year – some good advancement and some setbacks, but we always rally as volunteers.

This year we have some new board members along with many returning ones to help our growth. This year we will see an additional advancement with our Community Development Corporation program being added to the village of choice. All of our 2014 board members are back in various ways and I want to thank the entire 2014-15 team for their commitment to the village, the city and the team.

Code enforcement will be the main topic for the January meeting, with special guest Captain Mark Bliss reviewing 2014. As neighbors we all deserve and expect to see neighboring properties kept in great shape like our own. We will review issues that you have brought up in the last months of the year. 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.
