Closing out 2016 with style, thanks
& inspiration

Well the rest of holidays and the end of the year are upon us once again and I must say we have had an interesting year celebrating another year of being a "neighborhood of choice".

This year we celebrated our 25th year as East English Village and 40 years as an association. Some long-time residents may remember that initially we started out as D.E.A.R. – Detroit East Area Residents. Thanks to our many residents that make us great each day, stronger as a community and proud to be involved in the renaissance of this great city.


Seasonal Reminders - With the winter months here, please check on your neighbors and remember all outside pets must be cared for at all times. Please keep that shovel handy to take care of the snow, but also if you are walking your dog - remember to be responsible and take a bag along to take care of business throughout your neighborhood. No one likes surprises when the snow melts! We still need your contributions to help fund the seasonal maintenance and annual security funds. EEVA continues to work closely with the City of Detroit's Building Safety Engineering & Environment (BSEED) as well as Detroit Public Works (DPW) Departments.


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.
