A community meeting will be held on July 10 for residents in and around Eastern Market to discuss improvements to the area.
The meeting is hosted by the City of Detroit’s Planning and Development Department and is the second community meeting held to gather resident feedback on retail attraction, residential development and other planning initiatives for the area.
The meeting will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Detroit Edison School at 1903 Wilkins St.

Maybe you’re one of the many Detroiters who have had the privilege to attend Haute to Death, the Detroit-based dance party now in its tenth year. If you’re one of those people (or not, but you should), on Friday, Feb. 2, Haute to Death will commemorate a decade of nightlife culture in Detroit at DECA\DANCE, hosted by Red Bull House of Art.
The Neighborhoods and Eastern Market teamed up this year for Detroit’s Best Home Cook, a cooking contest where amateur chefs had to use local ingredients to craft their favorite dish for a panel of judges.
Our two contestants each hail from the west side of Detroit: Theodore Washington, a cake artist from NW Goldberg, and Lauren Gillon, a student and abuse-center worker from Weatherby. The winner receives a one-day pop-up at Eastern Market, where they'll be able to demonstrate their skills.
At The Neighborhoods, we’re interested in hearing from everybody in Detroit about what matters most to you.
