New master-planned community under construction in Henderson

LAS VEGAS -- Construction is moving forward on Henderson's newest master-planned community.

Cadence is being developed off Lake Mead Parkway just east of Boulder Highway. People headed out to Lake Las Vegas or Lake Mead will notice a lot of construction.

It is the newest master-planned community in southern Nevada called Cadence and developers say this area is in for a building boom.

Cheryl Persinger is vice president of marketing for Cadence. They broke ground in August and developer, the Landwell Company, has grand plans for Cadence.

"We'll have 13,250 homes built in our community once built out, over 10 to 15 years," Persinger said.

Cadence will play a key role for southern Nevada's home building industry's recovery after the recession.

HENDERSON, Nev. -- A Henderson woman died Friday morning after a head-on crash near Lake Las Vegas, Henderson Police said.

According to police, at around 6:20 a.m., the woman was driving a Toyota Camry westbound on Lake Mead Parkway east of Lake Las Vegas Parkway when she drifted into the eastbound lane and hit a Toyota Prius head-on.

The woman was taken to Sunrise Hospital where she was pronounced dead several hours later. The driver of the Prius was also taken to the hospital but she is expected to survive her injuries.
