Redevelopment

As an additional means to assist in re-energizing this area, the City of Henderson has included this property in its redevelopment district.  A portion of the property taxes generated on this site will be reinvested in Henderson to provide public improvements and enhance areas in need.  This does not affect the amount of property taxes paid by homeowners.  For more information, refer to the city of Henderson's Web site at http://www.cityofhenderson.com/redevelopment_agency/index.php.

Approximately 400 acres of the 2,200 acres on the property require remediation and clean-up. There has never been any industrial activity on the remainder of the site, most of which has remained virgin desert.  The evaporation ponds are now inactive.  The soil underlying the ponds will be excavated and transported to a lined and monitored Corrective Action Management Unit(CAMU), off site.  No excavated soils will be disposed of on-site.
