Henderson as a Sustainable Community
OurHenderson is the result of a commitment from city leaders to enhance the quality of life for all city residents. Quality of life has been one of the driving forces in the development of the City over the years, and has been reflected in the City’s Comprehensive Plan and other programs and policies. Our city leaders also recognize that the City should lead by example, exercise responsible stewardship of our natural resources, foster an ethic of conservation within our community, and increase awareness that our local actions may have wider impacts. These principles guide our everyday actions and decisions, and in November 2008, the City Council adopted a resolution recognizing our Guiding Principles. These Guiding Principles provide direction for the variety of sustainability initiatives that are underway. One of the major undertakings is the Sustainability Action Plan, which will be released this Spring.
