Henderson Redevelopment Agency sites

The City of Henderson (Clark County) initially received funding from the Nevada Brownfields Program in 2015 to conduct Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) to evaluate two sites’ suitability for redevelopment. Since 2015, Phase I ESAs have been completed on five sites. These sites are located within the City’s Downtown Redevelopment Area (RDA) and are high priorities for mixed-use redevelopment. Two additional sites are currently receiving Nevada Brownfields Program funding to conduct Phase I ESAs:

Site D: 211 and 219 S. Water Street

  • The site comprises five parcels over 0.9 acres. Three of the parcels are developed with a gravel parking lot and two parcels are developed as a single-story restaurant. The site was previously developed with single-family residential structures between the 1950s and 2007.

Site G: 3 W. Basic Road, 7 W. Basic Road, and 302 Tin Street

  • The site comprises three parcels over 0.5 acres. The site is currently developed with an asphalt parking lot and temporary office building for the City of Henderson. The site was previously developed with single-family residential structures between the 1950s and 1998.
