The St. Anthony Community Council was established in the summer of 1961 as a coalition of block clubs in the neighborhood encompassed by Gratiot to the north, Palmer to the south, East Grand Boulevard to the west and Van Dyke to the east. Their group pursued the overarching goals of promoting community cooperation and maintaining and encouraging high standards of community as well as developing individual obligation toward these goals. Their initiatives focused on the issues of housing, urban development, crime, and neighborhood beautification. The group dissolved at the end of 1969. The group received recognition from Michigan legislatures and the Detroit Police Department for their efforts toward community improvement.
