Red Rock Canyon – Ron Mader

The area, named for its vivid, “rusted” red sandstone outcrops, offers visitors nearly 200,000 acres in which to experience unique sandstone escarpments, thickets of Joshua trees, beautiful desert flowers, the beloved desert tortoise, and evidence left by native peoples, such as roasting pits, petroglyphs, and pictographs. About a million people visit this stunning Nevada landscape each year to enjoy the 13-mile scenic drive; more than 30 miles of trails; excellent rock climbing, biking, and equestrian opportunities; and a vibrant visitor center. – BLM

Wednesday, Clark County commissioners took a key vote that will delay the development of the 3,000 home subdivision on Blue Diamond Hill. A 2,000-acre mixed-use, mostly housing development has been in the planning stages for an area near Red Rock Conservation Area. Nearby residents have long been opposed citing concerns related to safety, the environment and encroachment on Red Rock, just across Highway 159.

Clark County Commissioners heard a request from Gypsum Resources for waivers to build on land near the Red Rock Canyon Las Vegas National Conservation Area. After a lengthy discussion, the Commission denied a project waiver request from Gypsum with regards to a road in and out of the area near Red Rock Canyon where the developer wants to build thousands of homes. Gypsum must obtain right-of-way the Bureau of Land Management for primary road and then return to commission for approval of plans of home project. – Clark County
