Redevelopment Agencies are one of the most important tools a community has to help breathe new life into areas in need of revitalization, economic development and new opportunity.

In 1995, 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 has not only provided funding for physical improvements, but has been building communities by attracting new business and private investment that have created new jobs, added public art to neighborhoods, and provided residents with funding to make improvements to their homes.

Currently, the City of Henderson’s Redevelopment Agency manages five redevelopment areas: Cornerstone, Downtown, Eastside, Lakemoor Canyon, and Tuscany.
