Grass Roots Organization

  • Save Red Rock Team

    They banded together to preserve the peace in their rural town. Along the way, the big city next door took up the fight, too.

    To city dwellers on the neon-lit side of Blue Diamond Hill, the small burg nestled in the western crux of the 159 might seem a bit eerie at night. So quiet, so dark. But to the 300 residents of Blue Diamond, it’s a peace worth fighting for — as is the family-friendly atmosphere that permeates the school, library, park, theater and swimming pool in the former gypsum-mine company town.

The Don Albietz Inspiration

  • Don Albietz & Family

    As such an honorable and influential member of the community was lost, the Don Albietz tragedy struck deep and wide. You may remember the Las Vegas Metro Police Officer who was killed in 2005 while riding his bike in Red Rock Canyon. As a husband, father, friend, police officer, little league coach, Ironman athlete and community hero, his life inspired the entire community to come together to fight for safer and better conditions in Red Rock Canyon, and www.saveredrock.com was born.

Current Effort: Keep Red Rock Rural

Save Red Rock has fought to protect the canyon on several fronts, with the community efforts resulting in many significant victories over the years, including lowering the speed limit on the scenic byway, creating safe 8-foot wide bike lanes, safety fencing for the wild burros and mustangs near the highway, and more accomplishments that can be found in our accomplishments page.

Currently, Save Red Rock is fighting to KEEP RED ROCK RURAL, to preserve the rural character of the canyon, and to keep out future high density and commercial developments that would adversely impact the experience.  Save Red Rock is working to notify people of the current threat of a zone change proposal in the canyon from rural to high density development that county commissioners will vote on soon.  (See Take Action page.)

If commissioners change a developer's rural zoning to high density, he proposes to build a city of over 14,000 residents, businesses, and commercial institutions in Red Rock Canyon.
