Commissioner Brager Stands by Her Conditions of Approval and Gypsum Resources Submits a Request to Hold the Red Rock Development Agenda Items
LAS VEGAS, NV (December 4, 2018) –Clark County Commissioner, Susan Brager, today informed Save Red Rock that the Gypsum Resources development request will not be heard on tomorrow’s agenda. Susan Brager is the Commissioner over District F which includes the Red Rock Canyon area.
“We are so grateful to Commissioner Brager for listening to her constituents,” said Heather Fisher, President of Save Red Rock, adding, “Thousands of phone calls and emails were sent to all the Commissioners asking them to keep their promises and protect Red Rock Canyon, and today Susan Brager said she would stand true to her word.”
Save Red Rock also thanks Commission Chairman, Steve Sisolak, for taking a stand for Red Rock in his support of the hold.
“Protecting our vital open spaces, scenic treasures and irreplaceable resources has always been, and will always be, among my highest priorities. I will oppose waiving these conditions. Moreover, the voters of Clark County will have spoken and elected two new Commissioners, and a third will be appointed, to be seated in January. I will not be a party to a lame-duck vote on such an important matter and I support allowing the next iteration of the County Commission being granted the opportunity to weigh in on this issue.”
Without waivers of conditions, the specific development plan cannot move forward. The applicant agreed to hold his requests in a letter to Commissioner Brager.
