Last Wednesday’s meeting was good. Commissioner Brager got to hear from many points of view about why there should not be construction traffic in Red Rock and why the taxpayer’s should not have to pay for the county to do a favor for the developer with the BLM. The hall was packed and the community was grateful to have her come do this meeting that wasn’t required, just so she could hear from her constituents. And most of all, they are grateful that she shares their concerns and commits to voting no on both waivers.
At the same time, Save Red Rock received a lot of concerned letters from people who were not in the district and wanted to know what they could do.
The big problem is that this is not just a District F issue, but has been portrayed publicly as such in the past. This issue impacts millions of visitors to Red Rock Canyon every year.
Save Red Rock just formed a non-profit corporation for the sole purpose of preserving the Red Rock Canyon experience and better facilitating the message with more public outreach. Unfortunately our January 7 fun run and ride had to be canceled, but we are working on something that we think will be even bigger. We’ll let you know what that is as soon as we can confirm that and also when we can get t-shirt sales on-line.
In the meantime, have a great holiday season and try to get out to Red Rock before it’s ruined…Just kidding! Working together, we will never let that happen!
Enjoy the warmth, peace, and reason for the season with your loved ones.
