Henderson developed its action plan through their federally recognized regional plan, "The Southern Nevada Strong Regional Plan." As a result of these efforts, Henderson commits to addressing gaps in public transit, lack of access to health care and household aid, and housing affordability. The plan also works to improve outdoor spaces and walkability by improving pedestrian connections and making pedestrian safety improvements, while ensuring that older adults are included in the planning of any new parks and recreational areas.
