What: In an effort to revitalize the Boulder Highway Corridor, the City of Henderson is implementing Boulder Highway - Revitalize, Reuse, Renew program at no cost to local property owners
Why: During the recent Henderson Strong comprehensive planning effort, the community prioritized increased investment in the Boulder Highway Corridor among others.
In response, the City of Henderson applied for and received the Brownfield Community-Wide Assessment Grant through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that allows the city to fund site research and environmental assessments on eligible properties in the area. 'Assessments test for contamination; this testing could then eliminate a critical hurdle to future sales and financing. The assessment process better positions property owners to more easily market their vacant or underutilized properties or repurpose them for a higher return on investment.
When: Grant funded activities of the Boulder Highway - Revitalize, Reuse, Renew program will continue through the spring of 2019.
Who & Where: Commercial property owners within the Boulder Highway - Revitalize, Reuse, Renew program area - an eight-mile segment of the Boulder Highway Corridor from Gibson Road/Broadbent Boulevard to Wagonwheel Drive.
