Former Henderson redevelopment manager Michelle Romero announced her bid for Henderson City Council Ward 1 seat on Wednesday.

Ward 1 Councilwoman Gerri Schroder is term-limited. She was elected to the Henderson City Council in April 2007 and re-elected in 2011 and 2015.

“I want to see the city continue moving forward into the future, while also maintaining its goal to be premier,” Romero said. “I think we have a fantastic community, and I believe we’re heading in the right direction. We just need to continue to grow smartly, so we have the right infrastructure and technology in place that will allow us to keep up with global trends and developments.”

Before retiring from the city in 2016, Romero worked in Henderson for 25 years, the last nine as the city’s redevelopment manager.

Projects that Romero worked on included the Union Village health care complex, Cadence master plan community and improvements in the Water Street District.

Romero owns a consulting firm that specializes in redevelopment, economic development and planning issues. She also serves on the Community Advisory Board for Henderson Hospital and is a board member for Parallel Innovation Labs, a nonprofit organization created to build educational and laboratory infrastructure.

Although the filing period for the municipal election does not start until January 2019, Romero said she made the announcement early because she is a “planner by design.”

And early dives into city elections have not been rare in Southern Nevada. Three candidates have declared their intentions to run for Las Vegas City Council seats next year.

VEGAS INC: ‘The Block’ urban core to be centerpiece for Henderson’s new western gateway

VEGASINC_LOGO_CMYK

Henderson_West_Rendering_t730

An ambitious mixed-use development is aspiring to be Henderson’s new western gateway.

Sauvage Real Estate’s proposed 103-acre plan calls for retail, residential and hotel space off St. Rose Parkway near the Henderson Executive Airport.

Zoning would allow up to 2,920 residential units, ranging from single-family to urban mixed-use buildings, and up to 670,000 square feet of office and retail space and 250–room mid-to-high level boutique hotel.

“We have been holding onto this site for several years,” Alan Sauvage said. “We think it’s the best development parcel of this size left in the valley, and the best opportunity to create new lifestyle options for a changing Henderson and all of Las Vegas.”

The plan features “The Block,” an urban core with retail shops topped by residential space. The area would include a movie theater, town plaza, a supermarket and a civic building with social and city services.

The plan also details an urban grid with sidewalks, walking trails, green places, public plazas and a bicycle network tying into Inspirada, Seven Hills and eventually Southern Highlands.

“Main Street and central plaza links to St. Rose, and that’s important because it has a pedestrian bikeway,” said Bill Fain, an urban design partner at Los Angeles-based planning firm Johnson Fain. “The bikeway is actually a structure that goes over St. Rose and connects to a bike park. It builds on Henderson’s plan for bikeways. Henderson really embraced bikes, and it really is the future.”

Sauvage’s vision calls for a lifestyle retail store to be in the bike park facing St Rose Parkway.

“We’ll be in the development-agreement phase of at least a year,” Sauvage said. “Our vision is to build a sustainable project, by bringing on a world-class team.”

Phase 1 includes 159,000 square feet of retail and up to 650 residential units; Phase 2 calls for 284,000 square feet of retail, 70,000 square feet of office, 1,000 residential units and a 250-room hotel; and Phase 3 includes 37,000 square feet of retail, 120,000 square feet of office and up to 1,270 residential units.

The Henderson City Council unanimously voted in favor of mixed-used zoning for the proposed Henderson West project earlier this month. The city’s Henderson Strong plan focuses on economic development, livable neighborhoods through integrated mobility solutions, numerous recreational amenities and diverse housing opportunities.

“We are building the urban center for west Henderson as envisioned in the Henderson Strong framework plan,” Fain said. “We’ve designed an economically and environmentally sustainable plan and forward-looking framework that also has flexibility to evolve with the market.”

Residential options vary from townhomes and courtyard housing to very high-end high-rise units.

“The condos will have some of the best views in the valley,” Sauvage said. “It’s an opportunity to take advantage of those views. Also, going vertical allows us to have a lot more open space.”

The development is just west of the proposed Las Vegas Raiders practice facility. The city is working with the team to develop a 55-acre plot the city owns across from Henderson Executive Airport.

Sauvage said he has no insight on whether that will come to fruition. He noted the luxury high-rise residential units to be built with his project could be an attractive place for players to live.

“That area is the best they could choose, especially with the (proximity of) Henderson Executive Airport,” he said. “(The high-rise condo options) play in perfectly.”

Nevada Business Magazine: Henderson West Proposed Development Plan Unanimously Approved by Henderson City Council

HENDERSON, Nev. — On Tuesday night, the Henderson City Council unanimously voted in favor of the proposed Regional Mixed-Use zone change for the 103-acre Henderson West proposed development plan. Henderson West, located along both sides of St. Rose Parkway in the West Henderson Planning Area, is envisioned as a new live-work-play community and western gateway to the City.

“We have been holding onto this site for a number of years,” said Alan Sauvage of Las Vegas-based Sauvage Real Estate, LLC. “We think it’s the best development parcel of this size left in the Valley, and the best opportunity to create new lifestyle options for a changing Henderson and all of Las Vegas.”

The zoning would allow up to 2,920 residential units, ranging from single-family to urban mixed-use buildings, and up to 670,000 square feet of office and retail space and 250 hotel rooms.

“We are in this for the long haul,” said Sauvage. “And we are going to attract world-class development partners to help create a place that is truly cutting edge.”

“We are building the urban center for west Henderson as envisioned in the Henderson Strong framework plan,” said William Fain, urban design partner at renowned Los Angeles-based planning firm Johnson Fain. “We’ve designed an economically and environmentally sustainable plan and forward-looking framework that also has the flexibility to evolve with the market.”

“The work is just beginning,” said Sauvage. “This project honors our legacy in the Las Vegas Valley.”
