RED ROCK RESOLUTION RIDE, RUN, ROCK’N RALLY!
with Lion Pride Reggae Band
The ride, run, and rally are free and you buy your own lunch, so to sign up costs nothing.
It’s just so we know how many to expect.
Please join us! Besides having a fun time, you will be doing an important thing. With longer and shorter runs and rides, and a rockin’ live band party poolside (or if the weather is bad, we get to use the indoor soccer park on the top floor of this elite fitness club with views of Red Rock Canyon), either way, this is a great event for the whole family. Come join the party even if you don’t ride or run. Get lunch for the kids, enjoy a FREE CONCERT and party at the exclusive, LIFETIME FITNESS. (You don’t have to be a member for this.)

Save Red Rock.com has fought hard to represent the public and protect Red Rock Canyon for the past ten years. We have won some very significant battles for Red Rock including getting bike lanes built on the scenic byway, lowering the speed limit, rerouting commercial trucking away from Red Rock, and creating the Red Rock Overlay for responsible (appropriate rural-only) development. Now that will all be RUINED if we drop the ball and don’t pay attention to this next battle. This one is a fight to keep high density CONSTRUCTION TRAFFIC OUT OF RED ROCK!
On January 18, Clark County Commissioners are being asked by a developer to go back on their agreement and grant him these two waivers:
- waiver 1: would allow the developer to use the Red Rock Canyon Scenic Byway (159) for construction traffic on a proposed high-density 20-30 year project
- waiver 2: would do a favor for the developer by making the county take over some of his responsibilities and let him first submit his plan and help him with his get right of way across BLM. The county requires that he cannot present his plan until he first obtains proper Rights of Way from BLM, but if he gets this waiver, the county (we as tax payers) would have to help pay for it.
We believe, along with Commissioner Brager who made these conditions to protect Red Rock in the first place, that these are good and reasonable conditions that SHOULD NOT BE WAIVED, especially in such a sensitive area as Red Rock. But this developer just won’t stop pestering all of the County Commissioners, and we don’t know yet how some of the other commissioners will vote.
Nobody’s asking to take any rights away from anyone, we’re just fighting for fair play. We don’t believe that any one developer should get special favors from the county. We don’t believe that Red Rock should be sacrificed. We just believe that he like any property owner, should stay within his property rights and build what he bought: a nice rural one house per two acres, tucked away only on land he owns. But, believe it or not, the concept plan he put forth to the commissioners, does not only show high density development for which he is not zoned, but also adds nearly a thousand acres of high density buildouts on PUBLIC land he does not own, that he wants to swap from the public!
It’s utterly ridiculous, but the good news is, some of the commissioners want to protect Red Rock for the public and have said they would vote no to the waivers. We just need to get the majority of them to agree.
So, let’s party! If you can’t come but want to help, you may visit www.saveredrock.com for on-line t-shirt sales and donation information.
Thank you and Happy New Year!
