Annual Membership Notice
Posted on Feb 20th, 2021
Now that the holidays are behind us, the Dearborn Hills Civic Association asks you to please consider renewing your Membership now for 2021.  If you have not been a member before, we ask you to please join.  ( If you have already renewed, Thank You ! )  
Annual Dues are only $25 per year and can be paid by clicking the following link to our website:, or by mailing a check to Dearborn Hills Civic Association / P.O. Box 2535 / Dearborn, MI 48123.
Even with the pandemic, this past year was very busy AND very productive.  From CSO road construction, saving and re-planting trees, working with various City of Dearborn Departments (Council, Legal, DPW, Police, Zoning Appeals, Planning, etc.), communicating with Real Estate and Title Insurance people on the Buying and Selling of homes in our neighborhood, providing advice and reviewing plans for home building and remodeling, and defending and upholding our Deed Restrictions, among other things; your Association is actively engaged in advocating for our neighbors and our neighborhood.
Your Membership Dues pay for essentials like :  Annual Meeting Space, P.O. Box, Webpage, Welcome Packets for New Residents, Newsletters and Communication Supplies.  We sincerely thank all residents for all additional monies donated for Island Flowers and Neighborhood Preservation.  All these monies help keep the DHCA moving forward and to maintain the charm and harmony of our beautiful Dearborn Hills neighborhood.  
This coming year promises to be active as well. 
The FINAL year of CSO road construction in our neighborhood is about to begin.  As we have in the past, we will do our best to provide up to date information on progress and to be a contact when neighbors have questions or issues.
We have quite a bit of work to do re-planting and landscaping most of our traffic islands as well. 
We will be distributing communications to every residence soon; informing everyone once again about our Deed Restrictions and how to find out more about them. 
Incidentally, we were recently awarded a favorable decision in court - after a lengthy legal case - involving an investor that refused to work with us and within your Deed Restrictions.   This property owner must now complete their project in a manner that is compatible and in harmony with the rest of the neighborhood.
Your donations help us to stay on top of ALL these activities and many more.  Your support helps your Civic Association to work hard to maintain our neighborhood charm and desirability.  In the long run, this enhances our quality of life and improves the value of all our properties.
Please click the link above and join Today !    The Property Value you raise will be YOURS !

~ Update on Criminal Activity in our Neighborhood ~
Thank You to all Concerned and Involved Residents - you again have made a Big, Positive Difference!
As some of you are already aware, since this past fall, our neighborhood has experienced a noticeable increase in cars being broken into and items from them being stolen.  In some cases, wheels from vehicles, and in some cases, entire vehicles, have been stolen.
After hearing from many affected residents (who spoke up) about these on-going issues, your Board reached out directly to Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad to discuss this situation and see what could be done.
We are happy to report that Chief Haddad was very receptive and responsive to our concerns.  Working with his staff, he implemented an aggressive initiative in November and December in our neighborhood that involved around the clock deployment of plainclothes and uniform patrols; additional traffic units being deployed on overtime; and door to door delivery in some areas of Crime Prevention materials to promote greater awareness of the City's "Lock it or Lose it - If you See Something, Say Something!" campaign.
As a result of this significantly increased activity, as well as several other contributing factors, Chief Haddad reports that Dearborn Police were able to arrest several individuals who were responsible for many of the crimes in our neighborhood.  
Chief Haddad is happy to report:
-    that there were NO reported larcenies from autos in the month of December in our area
-    that criminal activity in December in our area was 31.3% less than the same period last year.
-    The City of Dearborn will post an overall 14% reduction in crime in 2017.
Please join us in thanking Chief Haddad and our Dearborn Police Department for their on-going efforts.
All this is Good News, but we need to continue to be vigilant.
We live in a nice neighborhood and there will always be somebody looking to take something of value.  So, what should we ALL do?
It starts with the "Lock it or Lose it - If you See Something, Say Something!" campaign.  (See this link for more information: 2017 “Lock It or Lose It” campaign aims to decrease ... - City of Dearborn)
Five Simple Steps
1.    Lock your Car, your Home and your Garage
over 75% of larcenies from cars occur when the cars are un-locked
2.    Keep valuables out of your car (or at least out of sight)
3.    Park Cars in your driveway when possible.
4.    Keep outdoor lights on (porches, driveways, garages, etc.)
5.    If you See Something, Say Something.
If you notice something or someone that seems out of place or unfamiliar, call the Police at 313-943-3030 to report it.  Do not assume its nothing.  Do not Assume that someone else will call.  We urge everyone to report ANY suspicious activity.
The DHCA Board wants to thank everyone of you that spoke up, that raised a flag and made all of us aware of this situation.  Without that kind of involvement, progress - on any front - will always be much slower.
So let’s keep up the good work!  Let’s all Lock it!  Let’s all Speak up!
…and make our Dearborn Hills neighborhood better for everyone!
