Enjoy the summer!

Summer is finally here – let’s enjoy it in a neighborly way! I hope the Memorial holiday weekend was one of remembrance and relaxation for you and your family. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a very dear resident, friend and former board member – Tanya Cleveland. Tanya was our hardworking Treasurer for many years and a trusted neighbor to many. Tanya passed away in May. Our sincere condolences and sympathies to Tom and Tanya’s children.

Some quick summer reminders – having basketball hoops on any street is not allowed by Detroit City code. The city of Detroit added two basketball courts at Balduck Park and has installed basketball courts at Messner Park just east of Cadieux. Again, it’s a City of Detroit ordinance "not to play basketball in the street". Please remember to cut your lawn both back and front – be respectful and host summer events in the confines of your backyard. This works well when the other neighbors are not invited or are hosting similar events themselves. Lawn parking and street automotive repair is not allowed by city code as well. This past month we saw street cleaning return to the Village – some residents were lucky and escaped ticketing this time for not


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.
