Informational Open House to Provide Updates on Pittman Wash
HENDERSON, Nev. – The City of Henderson is hosting a community open house to update residents on the approved Pittman Wash Improvement Plan from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 21, in the amphitheater behind Silver Springs Recreation Center, 1951 Silver Springs Pkwy.
The informational meeting will include booths featuring topics ranging from trail improvements and recreational trail programming to utility and flood control projects. Representatives from several City of Henderson departments will be on hand to offer insight and provide project updates.
A portion of the funding for Pittman Wash Trail has been provided by the Bureau of Land Management through the sale of public lands as authorized by the Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act (SNPLMA).
The City of Henderson has been awarded more than $235 million in SNPLMA funding for more than 30 parks and trails projects, which has helped the city keep pace with an increased demand for outdoor recreation opportunities in the community.
For additional information, call the City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department’s Park Planning division at 702-267-4090.
