July 16, 2013



Henderson, Nev. The city of Henderson has been included among “America’s 19 Mega Suburbs” by SML, a nationwide moving and labor services provider. Other cities among the top 19 include Irvine, California; Gilbert, Arizona; Plano Texas; Aurora, Colorado; and Fremont, California.

According to Carter Schimpff, SML’s director of online marketing, factors for consideration include public safety and low crime rates, population growth and location. All of the “mega suburbs” are located in seven states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Nevada, Texas and Virginia.

“I think what makes Henderson unique is that we enjoy all of the outstanding amenities you might expect in the second-largest city in Nevada, yet we still enjoy the small-town atmosphere and values that are part of our heritage and who we are,” said Mayor Andy Hafen. “It’s these big city efficiencies and hometown pride that truly make Henderson a place to call home.”
