Petition

We, the undersigned, encourage local, state and federal officials and relevant agencies, to protect the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area from the negative impacts of non-rural development in the Red Rock area, and to preserve and enhance the conservation and recreation opportunities for which the NCA was created.

Explanation

Red Rock Canyon is a beautiful, natural, popular destination in the Southwest. It is a convenient, refreshing escape for Las Vegas residents and visitors. It is world renowned for rock climbing, bicycling, hiking, and its scenic drives, canyons, cliffs, and springs. A developer is trying to exploit Red Rock Canyon by changing the existing rural designation to allow higher density development in this sensitive area. This proposal would introduce 45,000 extra car trips a day, noise echoes, smog, light pollution and exhaust the already strained resources of the most popular National Conservation Area in the country in one of the most strained real estate markets. We believe that Red Rock should remain rural and that any action taken in and surrounded by the Red Rock Overlay District should reflect its rural standards and guidelines, and support the conservation and recreational opportunities for which the NCA was created.

Petition to Save Red Rock Canyon

We, the undersigned, encourage local, state and federal officials and relevant agencies to protect the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area from the negative impacts of allowing urban development.

Explanation

Red Rock Canyon is a beautiful, natural, popular destination in the Southwest. It is a convenient, refreshing escape for Las Vegas residents and visitors. It is world renown for rock climbing, bicycling, hiking, and its scenic drives, canyons, cliffs, and springs. A developer is trying to exploit Red Rock Canyon for personal gain by changing the rules to allow high density development in this sensitive area. This would introduce 45,000 extra car trips a day, noise echos, smog, light pollution and exhaust the already strained resources of the most popular BLM-managed National Conservation Area in the country. It sacrifices one of the most popular natural attractions and most strained real estate markets in the country. We believe that Red Rock should be enjoyed by all and not exploited by one.
