Raise your champagne glasses and help me in a toast to 2010 … here’s to an improved economy and a road headed in the right path toward recovery.
We kick off the year again with a special section on the Henderson Economic Development Awards. Inside, you’ll find an introduction from new city manager Mark Calhoun.
This is the 11th year of these awards, and the program is always tremendously successful. Among the honorees are new businesses to Henderson, companies that have expanded and commercial development projects. Individual honors include the Private Sector Award and the O’Callaghan Public Section Award, plus a variety of other redevelopment and tourism accolades.
Also inside are features on the city’s parks and recreation projects, changes to library locations, the role of the Henderson Development Association and its work in assisting local businesses and a wrap up of several new commercial projects in Henderson. Staff writer Buck Wargo provides a transportation update now that the Galleria Interchange is open.
One of our most popular Realty Check columnists, John Restrepo, analyzes the Henderson market for 2009 and looks into his crystal ball for ’10.
Inside, you’ll also get to meet Michael Coronado of WestCor Companies. Michael is president and managing partner of his group of companies. He founded the firm in 1989 in response to the residential boom in Southern Nevada. He applied his vision and extensive construction experience to grow the company into multi divisions – stage framing, crew framing, concrete, glazing and masonry – to meet the demands of both Nevada and California.
Check back with us, too, in March. That’s when we’ll take a look at the progress of the development projects in downtown Las Vegas.
