Areas of Redevelopment
City of Henderson Redevelopment
With the goal to enhance and improve the cityscape in downtown Henderson, The Henderson Redevelopment Agency was created in late 1995 to assist with the redevelopment of the central portion of Henderson. Aided by tax increment financing (TIF) funds, improvements to public and private property including relocation of businesses, revitalize and cleanup of neighborhoods and public rights-of-way, improve neglected buildings, and finally, assist with the construction of commercial developments all fall under the authority of this group. The following areas are targeted for improvement and redevelopment including downtown Henderson, Tuscany, Cornerstone and Eastside all within the City of Henderson.
Since 2003, the Downtown Investment Strategy has been focused at filling specific niche market development including convenience retail, specialty retail; focus on the Arts & Culture opportunities and affordable housing.
Downtown Henderson Redevelopment Area
With a focus on the sectors of affordable residential housing, retail and office development, these projects total more than 230,000 square feet.
