Helper parks get boost from RTSSD

Helper City has received a grant of $56,396 from the Carbon Recreation/Transportation Special Service District for parks improvements.

Councilman Kirk Mascaro said Thursday that the district money, along with funds raised by the Helper Park Partners group, will finance such things as playground equipment and other long-term upgrades of public recreation areas.

Helper's parks accommodate visitors from nearby unincorporated areas as well as its residents.

Helper will also be generating revenue from a Recreation, Arts and Parks tax approved by voters in the last election.

In another development related to infrastructure improvements, the city will move ahead and apply for a $2 million grant from the state's Permanent Community Impact Board for its river restoration project. The council held a public hearing on the plan at its Thursday meeting.

The river project would provide flood control and water quality improvements, and is being counted as infrastructure rather than recreation/tourism in the application.
