The City of Henderson has developed a Henderson Smart City Strategy (summary presentation) that provides a vision for investment in and implementation of citywide ‘smart city’ initiatives through the year 2020.
With the quality of education being among the highest priorities for Henderson, the Smart City Strategy includes initiatives focused on bridging the digital divide and creating connectivity to improve learning opportunities. Becoming a smarter Henderson will enhance the city’s economic competitiveness as companies look for communities that are on the technology cusp, and at the same time attract investment from public and private partners. It will also cater to residents’ increasing expectations for personalized services and enhance quality of life using digital and connected technologies to support Henderson’s increasingly diverse community.
Henderson’s Smart City Strategy aligns with and supports goals identified in the Henderson Strong Comprehensive Plan for healthy, livable communities; a vibrant, resilient economy; and active, complete transportation. The strategy identifies five focus areas within this framework: citizen services, public safety, education, transportation and city government and outlines initiatives that will be implemented over the next three years.
