From President's message:

Happy February!

Happy Valentine’s Day! - How will you celebrate? We have been very lucky this winter thus far with regard to snow storms – missing the big snow and ice storms that the east coast has been dealing with the last week.

Big thanks to the residents that have paid into the volunteer Snow Removal and Security Programs. We cannot provide these services without the much-needed contributions. We are hopeful for another Detroit Land Bank Home Tour this Spring. We will have an overview of the current Land Bank’s plans at the February meeting.

At our recent Tax Foreclosure Prevention workshop, Volunteers helped 59 homeowners.

At the end of January we hosted another Tax Foreclosure Prevention Workshop to help educate homeowners that have tax issues with the County – we would like to thank St Matthew’s Church for letting us use the campus to host EEV, Morningside and Cornerstone residents. We will review the outcome at the February meeting. Big thanks to our volunteers, once again, for helping with the housing crisis that still exists in America.

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.
