If you're in Vegas, make a stand against this proposed development of Red Rocks.

From the Access Fund:
Red Rock area climbers, we need your help! Since 2002, the climbing community and Save Red Rock have been fighting a massive housing development proposed for Blue Diamond Hill. The developer, Jim Rhodes, is currently seeking a mining permit which will allow him to start using trucks on site. Rhodes has never sought to mine the claim before and locals fear that this is a ploy to start preparing the land for the housing development. 

Due to the public interested, the Bureau of Mining Regulation and Reclamation, Nevada Division of Environmental Protection re-opened the comment period until Dec. 21, 2012 and is holding a public hearing regarding the permit application on December 18, 2012 at the Blue Diamond Recreation Hall, One Village Drive, Blue Diamond, NV 89004.

For more information on the public hearing and how to submit comments please go to https://ndep.nv.gov/docs_12/0328_phfy13.pdf
