As one year ends and we make our way into the next, it’s natural to reflect on the last year and envision the upcoming year. For us at Inspirada, 2017 was a season of growth in more ways than one: our community, our homes, and our town. But, the best is yet to come! Let’s take a walk down memory lane and remember 2017, and talk about some exciting, new developments in our Las Vegas community.
2017 in Review
On Oct. 23, Fire Station 91 had its grand opening. This state-of-the-art station is over 11,000 square feet. Our builders donated the 3.42-acre site and put $6.6 million toward the cost of construction and equipment. The opening was monumental in more ways than one: it is the first fire station built in Henderson in over 15 years and also the first in Inspirada.
Fresh52’s Farmers’ Markets continued at Solista Park throughout 2017. We enjoyed a myriad of events, like cooking demonstrations, live music, face painting, photos with Santa, and even blood and donation drives. Inspirada and Henderson residents loved this market so much, it was named one of the Best of Las Vegas in 2017 by the Las Vegas Review Journal.
The Inspirada Community Association brought neighbors together by offering free story-telling time, food truck events, blood drives, new resident meet-ups, community feedback discussions, and festive events, including the Halloween event — a partnership between the City of Henderson — that included a volleyball tournament, food, and activities.
On Aug. 12, Jolly Mart, a local convenience store, opened its doors in Inspirada. Owners Heidi and Edwin are residents and also own Jolly Beans Café. Residents can shop here for a wide range of products, from pool maintenance items to fruits and vegetables. They even offer gift options like Turkish towels and candles!
In 2017, we had over 800 new families move to Inspirada! To all of our new neighbors: Welcome, we’re so glad you’re here!
Thank you to everyone that made this community so vibrant and welcoming in 2017, we couldn’t have done it without you!
2018: What’s to Come
Robert and Sandy Ellis Elementary School, a Clark County School District school, is slotted to open in August 2018, at the corner of Beltrada Avenue and Via Italia.
