The following neighborhood leaders were recognized for going above and beyond in their efforts to improve their neighborhoods.
GREEN VALLEY RANCH COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION (GVRCA)
GVRCA converted approximately 20 percent of their common areas and Paseo Verde medians to desert landscaping. These areas were adjacent to many of the City of Henderson event areas such as parks, the Pavilion and the Multigenerational Center. The project contributed to the City’s water conservation efforts, reduced water expenses for the community and added to the beauty of this area while still leaving usable grass areas.
THE VILLAGE GREEN HOA
At the City’s June 2009 Neighborhood Leadership Forum, a Henderson Police Officer gave a presentation on the 267-DRUG campaign. This spurred the Village Green HOA to print 2000 copies of the related flier, which they distributed to homes and apartments in the area. They later found out that an anonymous call was placed as a result of these flyers and a drug dealer was apprehended in their neighborhood.
