Livable Communities

This priority is a comprehensive approach focusing on the synergies between economic, social, public health, environmental sustainability, and the effects of climate change by creating and developing enduring, adaptable, thriving, healthy, and livable communities for today and tomorrow.

Health is defined as a state of complete physical, mental, and social wellbeing. A great parks system in a community can boost well-being by providing equitable access for all residents, therefore the City of Henderson is dedicated to providing opportunities for fitness and recreation in local parks within a 10-minute walk of resident homes.
This City's comprehensive strategy also includes the City of Henderson's extensive 180+ mile trail system which provides an opportunity for recreation and serves as a mode of alternate transportation. 
The City is committed to developing a comprehensive strategy to encourage pedestrian, bicycling, and other modes of transportation as viable alternatives while maintaining a robust and sustainable roadway network.
