Henderson is looking at rezoning some areas of Second Street and adding developments for a new gateway into the city.

The Henderson City-County Planning Commission has discussed the idea for a new gateway to Henderson with city commissioners, working on the project for about a year now. They say they need a new gateway for when the I-69 corridor comes through.

They're hoping to do it in three phases. The first will begin from the Second Street overpass to Ingram Street, with the second and third phases extending to the Pennyrile Parkway.

Owner of Elite Screen Printing along Second Street, Holly Hartman, says she's happy the area is being developed.

"I think its really great. I'm really excited about that downtown Henderson is growing and it seems to really be developing," Hartman said.

The city hopes the new zoning, allowing more urban living, will attract people and businesses to Henderson.

A public hearing will be held on December 3.
