The Gateway Zone District is intended to provide for the development of a pedestrian- friendly, mixed-use, aesthetically pleasing entry-corridor into downtown Henderson from the proposed I-69 interchange. This Gateway Zone District is to promote the sense of place, and also provide opportunities to develop projects and properties compatible with a dense urban development pattern. The intent of the Gateway Zone District is as follows:
- Encourage and promote the public health, safety, and general welfare of the citizens of Henderson.
- Promote sustainable urban development, to better the environment and the aesthetic quality of Henderson for the future.
- Provide a walkable mixed-use area that is inviting to, pedestrians, and the travelling public.
- Reduce traffic conflict points, to promote safety.
- Reduce stormwater runoff and promote green design.
- Encourage originality, flexibility and innovation in development along Second Street, including the architecture, signage, and placement of buildings.
- Discourage monotonous, unsightly, and discordant development that is not in keeping with the entry-point into downtown Henderson, to provide for a harmonious mix of uses and development standards compatible with an urban corridor.
- Minimize blight, and poorly designed and unattractive development.
