Mountain's Edge is a master planned community in the unincorporated town of Enterprise in Clark County, Nevada.[1] It is a neighborhood within the southwest part of the Las Vegas Valley.

History[edit]

Focus Property Group started the construction of Mountain's Edge in February, 2004. The development plans included 14,500 homes and more than 22 neighborhoods with stores, office space, and shopping centers.[2] By 2008, 7,000 homes had been built but during that year, a downturn in the housing market was cited for delays in further developing the site.[3]

A number of community parks were initially planned: Exploration Park, Mountain's Edge Regional Park, Paiute Park, Helen Stewart Park, John C. Fremont Park, and the Nathaniel Jones Park. By 2009, only the 85-acre Exploration Park had been developed. In 2009, the development company proposed downgrades for the other parks due to lack of funds.[4]

The original plan called four elementary schools, two middle schools and a high school all to be part of the Clark County School District.

Schools[edit]

  • Wright Elementary School
  • Carolyn S. Reedom Elementary School
