In 1985, the City of Henderson
recognized the need to revitalize and reinvest in some of its maturing
neighborhoods and created the City of Henderson Redevelopment Agency. Since
then, Redevelopment activities have included:
Creating jobs as
demonstrated by Henderson's redevelopment of the old gravel mines at Tuscany
where, during construction of the new master planned community, hundreds of
people were employed.
investment in declining areas through public/private partnerships.
opportunities for new businesses such as the numerous art galleries,
restaurants and retail outlets that have found a home in downtown
Hendersonís Water Street District.
ensure that housing is affordable for all income levels by funding
assistance programs administered by Neighborhood Services, as is the plan
for Hendersonís Eastside redevelopment area.
homeownership possibilities through low interest loans; providing homeowners
with the ability to increase the value of their homes through homeowner
assistance programs as in the Water Street District and Eastside, where the
Agency has provided over $850,000 in housing improvement assistance, matched
with over $430,000 in private investment.
in the community through faÁade improvements.
infrastructures as demonstrated by the City of Hendersonís streetscape
upgrades along Water Street.
Currently, the City of Hendersonís
Redevelopment Agency manages
five redevelopment areas:
Cornerstone, Downtown, Eastside, Lakemoor Canyon, and Tuscany.
