Is Red Rock Canyon Disposable?! Did you know that nearly 1000 acres of land above Red Rock Canyon (adjacent to the property that Jim Rhodes owns and is trying to develop) is listed as disposal land? This is not only outrageous but extremely dangerous! All the Federal Government has to do to SAVE RED ROCK […]

SAVING RED ROCK CANYON
Commissioner Susan Brager’s proposal to trade Federal land for private in-holding in Red Rock Canyon is good news (RJ, 1/19/2013, p. 3B). the Canyon is a priceless National treasure and it would be a shame to see 4700 homes, a business park, and retail areas in the middle of such a marvelous gift of nature.
We all have an important part to play in protecting the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. A Federal trade has been suggested in the past and, while Mr. Rhodes has been amenable to the idea, our Federal representatives have not. The Bureau of Land Management has taken the position that the private land has been scarred by mining and is not worthy of inclusion in the Conservation Area. Our elected Federal officials have refused to engage in a trade. It is up to us to convince our leaders that the Canyon is worth saving as a National resource.
