Welcome / Home

The City of Lake Helen, known as “The Gem of Florida,” is located in west Volusia County located immediately off of Interstate 4 (in between Orlando and Daytona Beach).  

Founded by Henry DeLand and named after his daughter, the City was intended as one of the prettiest and most pleasant towns in Florida.  Lake Helen preserves a small-town character, with historic architectures, tree lined roads and lush vegetation.

Lake Helen is not only the perfect location but maintains an old Florida rural town feel.



The City Commission is requesting your input for 2018 River to Sea TPO Survey: http://tellthetpo.com/

It only takes a few minutes…

The River to Sea TPO (R2CTPO), www.R2CTPO.org, is actively seeking public input as we plan transportation improvements for the Metropolitan Planning Area (MPA), which includes all of Volusia County and portions of Flagler County, including Beverly Beach and Flagler Beach as well as portions of the cities of Palm Coast and Bunnell.

The R2CTPO will officially launch the 2018 “Tell the TPO” Community Transportation Survey Campaign on April 30, 2018 and the survey will be open through June 30, 2018. This survey is conducted every two years and helps to provide insights for the TPO as it makes decisions on transportation priorities.

To ensure the highest possible survey response rate, the survey is available online at www.TelltheTPO.com(PC and mobile-device friendly); hard copies are also available, both in Spanish and English. Each person who completes the survey by June 30, 2018 can choose to be entered into a drawing to win a 3 day/2 night hotel stay for 2 at The Shores Resort & Spa!
