TSA's park is one of the largest and most used in the county.
TSA hosts one of Helena's two LDS meetinghouses, as well as one of Montana's two LDS temples.
Treasure State Acres sits just north of Helena, Montana's city limits -- and just off Montana Avenue -- and is home to about 350 residences. It is a quiet neighborhood, yet close to Helena's fastest-growing commercial district, which includes Macy's, Target, Super 1, Albertson's, Lowe's, Home Depot and many other retail outlets. The subdivision is home to one of the state's two LDS temples. (The photo of the temple above was taken during the Fourth of July fireworks show that takes place in the TSA Park just to the east of the temple.)
TSA boasts its own sewer and water district, as well as a large park that includes a children's playground.
At Christmas-time, visitors from around the region drive through Treasure State Acres to see the spectacular Christmas lights with which residents have bedecked their homes, and the luminaries they have set along the streets. Another big attraction on Christmas Eve is the Nativity display with live animals at the LDS lot located near the entrance to TSA. People who come to see the display donate thousands of pounds of food to the local food bank.
Treasure State Acres boasts one of Montana's best displays of Christmas tree lights.
TSA Subdivision Garage Sale Sept. 9
Join in for this subdivision-wide garage sale on Saturday, Sept. 9
What we’ll do: Run an ad in the Helena IR telling the public that there will be a TSA subdivision-wide garage sale that day. We’ll also post the sale on Facebook and Craigslist.
We’ll let the public know the sale will generally run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., but individual parties are free to choose whatever hours they want and post them on signs, their own ads on Facebook, Craigslist, etc. Some might want to also extend their sales by running them Friday or Sunday, as well.
We’ll also post flyers at various places around Helena where flyers can be posted.
What you do: Gather up things you want to sell, price them, set up tables and displays, and put out signs when sale day arrives.
We are encouraging TSA residents who participate in the sale to donate a portion of their proceeds to efforts to improve playground equipment at the TSA Park. You can send donations to HOA treasurer Terry Atwood, 4230 Wolverine, after your sale and we’ll get it to the park improvement project.
Sewer District hearing on proposed improvements to system
The Treasure State Acres Sewer District will hold a public hearing on Thursday, October 5, at 6:30 p.m. at the LDS Church, 1260 Otter Road. The Sewer District has scheduled the hearing to obtain public comments regarding the findings of the proposed improvements to the wastewater system. With assistance from Great West Engineering, the district is preparing a wastewater preliminary engineering report (PER) and is considering applications for funding from the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC) program.
At the public hearing, representatives of Great West Engineering will explain the
findings of the PER, the purpose of the proposed project, the project area, the scope of work, budget, possible sources of funding, and any costs that may result for the district and its users. An assessment of the project and its potential impact on the environment will also be presented.
Copies of the draft environmental assessment are available upon
request and at the hearing. During the hearing; residents may ask questions and express their opinions regarding the project and its impact on the district.
Residents can submit written comments and questions about the project by contacting Great West Engineering Project Manager Matt Mudd, PE, at (406) 495-6196 or email@example.com.

Now is time to pay your 2023 TSA dues. Please send a check for $25 to treasurer Terry Atwood, 4230 Wolverine Dr., Helena, MT 59602 (Make out to TSA Homeowners Association). These funds pay such costs as legal expenses & the annual Christmas luminarias display.
We’ve gotten complaints about weeds as well as bushes and shrubs at street intersections. Please keep weeds in your yard under control, and if you are pruning in your yard, pare back any shrubs or bushes you have that may block the vision of motorists on street intersections. Our covenants require it.
On the Fourth of July holiday, county rules allow fireworks in county parks such as the TSA park between the hours of 8 a.m. and 1 a.m. from July 2 to July 6.
Violations of the county ordinance can be punished by a fine of up to $500. You can find a copy of the complete ordinance at this link. By the way, the HOA doesn't have the ability to enforce violations of the county ordinance. That's up to the county.
Meanwhile, we urge fireworks users to be courteous to neighbors in terms of when and how they discharge fireworks and to clean up their debris.
If you have a question on a TSA matter, have a suggestion for this web site, or want to get on our email list, let us know at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks & have a great summer. Steve Shirley, President & Terry Atwood, Treasurer
