Tell the Parks and Recreation Department What YOU Think
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For the past several months, The Woodlands Township has been gathering information for its Parks and Recreation Needs Assessment. The goal of the needs assessment is to understand the needs and wants of the community and then prioritize them for implementation.  To date we have talked to numerous user groups including the Village Associations and the local sport and recreation groups.  
  
The next step is to understand the needs of the general public.  Please click here to be directed to the Parks and Recreation Needs Assessment survey.   The survey will be open until May 19th.
Township Elections - Vote on May 14th

Election day is May 14th from 7AM to & 7PM.

Fire Danger - Residents are advised to take precautions 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Please remember that Montgomery County has issued a fire ban throughout the County, which prohibits outdoor burning. The Woodlands Township does not allow open burning at any time without a permit, and the fire department encourages all residents to use extreme caution when using any type of open flame, said The Woodlands Fire Chief Alan Benson.
"Until conditions improve, The Woodlands Fire Department discourages any use of fire pits, charcoal grills or any other sources of ignition that could cause an accidental fire, Chief Benson said.

May Yard of the Month Winners

May 2011 Yard of the Month
Franklin Palmer (lf) and Jim Upham presented the May Yard of the Month
Luke & Harriett have lived in their home for 5 years. They have red salvia, white begonia and coppertone ginger in their flower beds. The yard has hard landscaping paths so everyone can walk around without getting muddy. They also have red maple and red oak trees as well as several tropical trees. In the front entry way, Harriett has put juniper holly with an assortment of other plants for balance. Additionally, they have moss rock borders around each flower bed. This yard makes us all proud of the hard work Luke & Harriett have done in their yard. Congratulations Luke and Harriett.
  
This beautiful yard was nominated by Jim Upham
