                                     RIVERWOODS located in the City of Helena

Helena, located in North Shelby County, is synonymous with rapid but controlled growth.  The pace at which we are developing has allowed us to maintain our small town charm, yet gives us the resources necessary to provide the services that our citizens and businesses need and deserve. Helena has grown into a city that offers a lot of the conveniences of larger cities yet still maintains its family-oriented atmosphere.  There are many pointes of interest in the City of Helena.   Enjoy summer concerts, sundown cinemas, Kids fest, the Buck Creek Festival and 4th of July celebration at the Helena Amphitheater in Old Town Helena.  At Joe Tucker Park there are walking paths around the lake, tennis courts and picnic areas. Cahaba Lily Park offers a playground, picnic pavilions, walking trails and swing sets.  There is also a state of the art Sports Plex offering all of the league sports activities.  And don't forget to come out for the Christmas Parade or on Christmas Eve when Santa rides through every neighborhood on the fire truck!



RIVERWOODS homeowners are provided with Helena City Services such as Fire and Police protection, Water, Sewer and Garbage Services and the Shelby County Jane B. Holmes Public Library.  Other utilities are provided by Alabama Power, ALAGASCO and Bell South.  Charter Cable is available in most areas and is provided in all Sectors as built.


RIVERWOODS is in the Shelby County school system and served by Helena Elementary, Helena Intermediate, Riverchase Middle and Pelham High School.  There is a NEW Helena Middle School.


RIVERWOODS property tax is assessed by Shelby County with the Helena millage rate of 4.9 per hundred thousand.  With homes priced from $250's to $700's estimated taxes would be in the approximate range of $1300 - $3900 per year. (Example Sales price $250,000 x 10% = 25000 x 4.9 = $1225 per year or $102 per month)

With new construction property can be assessed with a class 2 rate the first year and would adjust after homestead is claimed.


RIVERWOODS Homeowners Association Dues are currently $360 per year and are used to maintain the common areas such as the pool, parks, entrances, walking trails and lakes.  The Clubhouse will be deeded to the Homeowners Association in the future.
