President's message:

Happy Valentines Day!

How will you celebrate? We have been very lucky this winter thus far with regard to snowstorms, missing the big snow and ice storms that the east coast has been dealing with the last week or so. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for a lighter winter than last year.

Our January meeting was well attended, with close to a hundred residents to hear our four guest speakers cover varying topics. An update on the new light systems and DTE was given, Police Captain Mark Bliss gave us great news on crime being down for the month, and Habitat asked for input regarding the plans from Future City.

We are hopeful for another Detroit Land Bank Home Tour this spring. We will have an overview of the current land bank plans at the February meeting. We will also review the latest news on the Detroit property assessment reductions in the city — EEVA has a proposed 5% reduction. Come join us to learn much more.

In January we hosted a Tax Foreclosure information workshop to help educate homeowners that have tax issues with the county. We will review the outcome at the February meeting. We continue to struggle with trash days and when to actually put items out. If it’s not picked up, please remove the items or trash can after the day — they will not be back until the next official trash day.

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.
