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

WE HIT OUR GOAL! And right during the Red Rock Rendezvous! Thank you climbers! And cyclists, and hikers, and families, and businesses, and conservation groups, and tourists, and everyone! I am not going to stop this because it is such a wonderful thing to see the love pouring out for Red Rock. We have a few more hurdles to conquer in the quest to keep Red Rock's rural protections in tact. Something this wonderful isn't going to be easy to hold on to, but we don't need easy, we are STRONG! I love Red Rock and her people so much. Thank you all.

45k DONE! Ironically, we hit this milestone during the meeting where 5 commissioners voted to allow the developer to move forward with his plan to build 5000 homes in Red Rock and 2 commissioners voted to deny it. They all had the chance to deny it or at least vote for it with the condition that he "keep Red Rock rural" at his current zoning. But they didn't. We are not going away. Please keep this going. One developer against 45k people and they choose the one developer?! They have to answer to the people eventually! NEVER GIVE UP! WE WON'T! The developer still has his land zoned rural, so he still can't build. He has to go in for a zone change approval next, before he can dig the first hole on this plan, so we will bring this petition even stronger and an even stronger public to them then. And this petition also works for people over their heads. Maybe we'll take it to State or Federal level. Somehow the people will win. The people will also be around when it comes our time to VOTE!

Holy moly! You are all ROCKING the petition to KEEP RED ROCK RURAL! This morning I asked if you could give us 2000 to get to our goal of 40,000 and we blew right past it in a couple of hours. I just changed the goal to 45,000. Thank you to all your support and your friends' support and your favorite celebrities' support especially! Vegas Rocks out for Red Rock. Talk about Vegas coming together for a good cause. Red Rock deserves all the love and the buzz and the protections she can get. Keep on blowing this up!

We just passed 38k! Let's see how many we can get for the last day before the big VOTE! We are printing out the petitions tomorrow night on re-used paper to give to the Commissioners at the meeting Wed. morning where they will decide the fate of the canyon. Will they listen to the one developer or the +/- 40k voices of the people asking them to Keep Red Rock Rural?

Red Rock is so cool, and you are doing such a great job sharing the petition, we just increased the goal to 40k!

We are so grateful for all the support as the petition soars ten times past our expectations at over 30,000!
October 24
With nearly a thousand signatures in the last 24 hours, we passed right by 20,000 and are well on our way to the 25,000 goal! Thank you everyone who loves Red Rock Canyon. We hope the commissioners will listen to your pleas and Keep Red Rock Rural.
October 18
Due to all the heart-warming support, I am increasing the goal to 25,000! We all love you Red Rock!

Watch closely guys! Red Rock is on fire! Yesterday I had to increase the goal to 15,000 and today we might just get that...in one day! So I'm going for it and setting it to 20,000. The government sometimes doesn't care about petitions unless they are very noticeable. It's looking like we have the potential to become very noticeable.
October 13
No way! Watch closely, we are about to break through 10,000 today! This is incredible! At first i thought it was too good to be true, so I looked up the comments and it is indeed, that all these people care about keeping Red Rock rural. Way to go everybody out there!

    There a thousands of developments in Las Vegas and no other place like Red Rock Canyon. There are hundreds of bicyclists and runners on the road through the canyon every day. Please don't destroy the last best natural space in Las Vegas.
