Business Impact Statements

Nevada Revised Statutes 237 requires a municipality to perform an analysis of the impact and prepare for record a business impact statement when considering a new ordinance, or amending an old ordinance, which is likely to impose a direct and significant economic burden on a business. The analysis requires, in part, sending copies of the proposed ordinance amendment to specifically affected businesses, to trade unions, to the Chamber of Commerce, in such a way as to give notice to the businesses that might be affected.

Revisions to the law, effective July 2013, amended the requirements for preparing a business impact statement.  Based on those changes, the City of Henderson City Attorney has concluded that a Business Impact Statement is only required on ordinances that increase or impose a fee on businesses. The City of Henderson Business Impact Statement form has been updated to reflect this change.
