Fireworks, cheerleaders and even a new city seal were part of the celebration of the future for the City of Henderson.

During her state of the city speech, Henderson Mayor Debra March was joined by the Raiderette cheerleaders and presented a joking concept of the city seal featuring the Raiders logo.

The show was all part of the excitement of the land sale expected to take place in February that will clear the way for the Raiders to build their team headquarters and practice facility near the Henderson Executive Airport.

“The Raiders facility will be a key part of what promises to be one of the most exciting areas for the future of Henderson,” March said.

City leaders say they future in the eyes of March and other city council members is West Henderson.

The President and CEO of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce says the area west of the airport is a key cog in the city’s development.

“This is our frontier for these types of projects,” Scott Muelrath said.

Muelrath pointed to several projects in the works in the area near the airport including the Turano Baking Company building, and several industrial buildings being built by developers banking on the area growth.

There are also plans for a new Costco warehouse north of the airport and a housing and retail development project called the Block near the M Resort.

“It is a big statement of confidence from the developers, and the city and from the business community that these businesses with relocate and expand here,” Muelrath said.

While all of those projects are in the works before the Raiders complete their purchase, Muelrath says there is no doubt other companies will follow.

“It is going to be a domino effect, and a positive one for Henderson,” Muelrath said.

The city says the development of the area could be a big boost for the tax base, with similar projects in other parts of the country generating $200 million in taxes over a decade.

The city of Henderson welcomed the Raiders with fireworks and cheerleaders at their annual State of The City. Last week the city approved a resolution, of intent to sell the land by the Henderson Executive Airport to the Raiders for their practice facility and executive offices.

“Welcome to Henderson, home of the Las Vegas Raiders,” Mayor Debra March said. “Those 55 acres will house the corporate headquarters, practice facilities, medical offices, marketing, and all the other services for the support and operations of the Las Vegas Raiders.”

The mayor says this move is a huge step in the right direction for west Henderson development.

“The Raider’s facility will be a key part of what promises to be one of the most exciting areas in the future of Henderson,” Mayor March said.

West Henderson isn’t the only area seeing growth. The city has major plans for revitalizing the Water Street District and improving education.

“Recently, my fellow council members and I voted to direct revenue from the city’s licensing of recreational marijuana establishments for the use in education,” Mayor March said.

Looking back on 2017, The mayor says she’s proud of major safety accomplishments like the new Emergency Operations Center, but most of all, she’s proud of how the city responded in the wake of 1 October.

“I’ve never been as proud as I was that day to see the selfless service demonstrated by the men and women of our police and fire departments as they rushed to the aid of those in need,” Mayor March said.

She took the time to honor the family of one victim that hit very close to home.

“We were devastated to learn that one of our wonderful public works and parks and recreation employees Quinton Robbins never came home. In a city where family means so much to us, we were heartbroken by his loss,” Mayor March said.

In a game changer for the City of Henderson, Mayor Debra March welcomed the NFL’s “Raiderettes” during her annual State of the City address.

When it comes to political speeches, this one had flare. March was joined by cheerleaders from the Las Vegas Raiders, giving an update on an important project for the city.

“On behalf of the entire city, welcome to Henderson, home of the Las Vegas Raiders,” said March.

The city plans on turning 55 acres of empty land near the Henderson Executive Airport into the home base for the NFL team.

“It will bring hundreds of jobs in construction and development along with other jobs that will be needed to support their operations,” said March.

Just last week, the city council approved a resolution to sell the land to the team for $6 million.

The plan: build a state-of-the-art practice facility and corporate headquarters.

It’s good news for business owners like Suki Behk.

“There’s number one Raiders fan over here,” said Behk.

Her Wings Restaurant is just a few miles down the road from the site and she’s happy to welcome the new neighbors.

“I think it’s good for us, the people living around here, and everyone in Las Vegas,” said Behk.

Along with the Raiders facility, March stressed improvements to Water Street, business growth, and new construction projects in West Henderson.

“We’ve been planning for this, for how we want to grow. We’re one of the safest communities in America,” said March.

But no question, the community is responding to the Raiders.

And back at Wings, Behk admits her favorite player of all time is Joe Montana with the 49ers, but she’ll be cheering the silver and black.

“I hope they will forgive me and come try our wings,” said Behk.
