President's message:

Winter is coming — are you ready?


Happy Thanksgiving! Well the 2014 holiday push is about to happen once again – are you ready? I dare say most of us are still trying to pack up the outdoor furniture or perhaps do some exterior maintenance before the snow flies again. This year the fall season was way too short for some. The month of October brought out the best in EEVA residents and it showed in our Angels' Night patrols. Huge thanks to all who helped with the patrol as well as the added patrols in the month of October.

We could not have done it without great planning from Gwen Wee once again. Thanks also to Bee and Harry Davis, Gwen’s husband Tony and several others for helping with setup and organizing the patrols. Thanks to all our neighbors who kept their lights on, watched houses and registered and took part in the organized patrol. We again this year have nothing to report but good things for the three-day period. Mayor Mike Duggan, City Council President Brenda Jones, Captain Bliss, Craig Fahle of the Detroit Land Bank, BS&E Director Eric Jones, Director of GSD Brad Dick and several police officers came by once again to say hello and give added support.


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.
