Lake Las Vegas is a master planned community that in the downturn almost went bankrupt. The city of Henderson Nevada has worked with the developers to pull them out of bankruptcy and realign the SID/LIDS and the golf courses so that they can sustain themselves.
The Falls Golf course has been turned into a non-functioning golf course and is a green belt project. The other two golf courses, Reflection Bay and South Shore, are still operational. When the city stepped in several new projects have started to rebuild new homes.

Many people relocating to Henderson often have concerns about the school district. With all the growth within the City of Henderson Nevada, there will be more school aged children and we have no funding to build new public schools until 2017. The City of Henderson Nevada has planned for this by luring more than 20 private and charter schools to our area. Charter schools offer a free opportunity to the public school system.
With so many changes within our city, there is bound to be lots of road construction. To view the current road construction or to see what is planned in the future visit www.seeingorangenv.com and know where to avoid.
