I am saddened that developer Jim Rhodes is back again asking the Clark County Commission to approve a proposal to build more than 5,000 homes near Red Rock Canyon.
Red Rock is a place for residents and tourists to hike, climb and bike. I have enjoyed its untouched beauty for many years as a native of Las Vegas. Even now it is getting crowded without the proposed development. Building a sprawling city would take away from the beauty and recreational value of Red Rock Canyon. County commissioners should listen to their constituents and reject Rhodes’ development proposal.
