The Recreation and Natural Resource Plan is an important document that serves as a guide for the township to manage the township owned parks and trails with Helena Township. It is required by the department of Natural Resources in order to qualify for their grant programs. This plan was completed by the Helena Township Parks and Recreation Committee based on the results of a survey completed by the Helena Township community in October, 2011, and Updated in 2018.

2011 Parks and Recreation Survey Results and Public Forum Input

Before our plan was finalized, we gave the public an opportunity to review it and make comments for a 30 day period beginning June 13, 2013. The comments we received and the action taken by the committee as a result can be reviewed in the Five Year Plan beginning on page 33.

The Helena Township Recreation and Natural Resource Plan will be in effect for 2013 through 2017. In 2016, the Parks and Recreation Committee will begin the process of constructing a new plan for the years 2018-2023.
