The Las Vegas Review-Journal has reported that city officials have big plans for Henderson.
They envision a suburban utopia filled with plenty of open spaces, parks, community gardens and access to all modes of transportation — maybe even a light rail. Restaurants and retail stores will fill downtown.
As a first step in their vision, the Henderson City Council adopted Henderson Strong, replacing the city’s master plan that was adopted in 2006.
Although the Great Recession caused city officials to re-evaluate their plans, the main reason for the updated plan is the projected addition of 100,000 new residents in the next 20 years, said Stephanie Garcia-Vause, Henderson community development and services director.
Henderson is the second-largest city in Nevada, with an estimated population of more than 300,000.
Officials say the city, where the NFL’s Raiders will have their headquarters, will be a place where everyone can “live, work and play.”
