As Mayor of the City of Henderson, I have the privilege of
representing one of the most vibrant and enriching communities in America. We take pride in providing our residents with excellent services and amenities. Situated in sunny Southern Nevada, our residents enjoy the highest quality of life in the Las Vegas Valley. It is my pleasure to share with you what makes our thriving city a premier community.
Incorporated in 1953, Henderson is Nevada's second largest city with more than 290,000 residents. Our city is pleased to be recognized as the Second Safest City in America by Forbes magazine and three times named to MONEY magazine's list of "Best Places to Live in America". Our favorable tax structure, award-winning health care locations, accredited parks, police and fire departments all contribute to these accolades setting our community apart.
While our city has grown to host a variety of metropolitan cultural arts and nationally recognized special events, we retain our small-town values and atmosphere. Annual events and local parades are still held in the Water Street District, our original "main street". Our community also celebrates the grand openings of local businesses, accomplishments of our youth and contributions of our centenarians. With numerous parks, mixed-use shopping areas, master-planned communities and senior living neighborhoods, Henderson is a place where all can live, learn, work and play. Henderson is not just a place to live, but truly a place to call home.
Come see for yourself why Henderson is a place to call home. I look forward to welcoming you to Henderson very soon!
