November 2010


Our October Neighborhood Leadership Forum was a resounding success!

The October 2010 Forum focused on the topic of Economic Development in Henderson. Bob Cooper, Manager of Economic Development, discussed what the City is doing to spur economic growth in our community. His presentation included information on economic diversification, real estate strategies, job creation programs, as well as redevelopment in our downtown area of Water Street.

In addition, seven communities were recognized for going above and beyond in their efforts to improve their neighborhoods.

Stay tuned for a more thorough recap of the event in our next Your Neighborhood Matters newsletter!

A special thank you to The Groundskeeper, who sponsored last month's forum.

Crime Prevention

Tip of the Month

Community Gates

“If everyone has the gate code and can easily enter your community, then why have a gate?” -Officer David Kohlmeier

Most communities' entrance gates have generic codes for their residents that are seldom, if ever, changed. While every community is different, Officer Kohlmeier with the Henderson Police Department’s Community Relations Office recommends that these generic gate codes be removed from the system.

Every homeowner has a gate opener that allows them entry into the community. Visitors can gain access by using the phone system connected to the callbox, which can be connected to either a landline and or cellular phone.

By taking a moment to limit access to those who don’t belong in our communities, we can stop unwanted visitors and ultimately help decrease criminal activity.

If you have any questions about this crime prevention tip or would like to know how to implement it in your neighborhood, please contact Officer David Kohlmeier at (702) 267-4495.
