Neighborhood Standards

Palmer Woods is a neighborhood blessed by abundant natural beauty, stunning homes and gardens, and winding, tree-lined streets, making it one of the treasures of the City of Detroit. Since its inception in 1915, the residents of this storied neighborhood have striven to preserve the charm of its winding drives, its spectacular wooded vistas, and the integrity of its architectural and aesthetic heritage.

To this end, the Palmer Woods Association continues this mission, to ensure that our neighborhood remains one of the jewels of our City by preserving its natural beauty, promoting a sense of harmony between neighbors, and maintaining an aesthetically pleasing appearance overall. Please read below for ways that you, as homeowners, can continue this proud tradition.
