Here’s an exclusive look at the letter The Killers will deliver to County Commissioners in advance of Wednesday’s hearing to support the fight to #SaveRedRock:

As members of The Killers, we don’t usually get involved in local politics. But in 2011, when a developer proposed to build new homes for more than 14,000 residents on a property right in the middle of Red Rock Canyon, we spoke out against it.

Now that same developer is back asking County Commissioners once again to approve a sprawl development surrounded on three sides by Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.

This development (the size of Boulder City) will eliminate the dark night sky in Red Rock and remove our natural canyon skyline. Also, constructing this many homes on fine gypsum sand (the site of the old gypsum plant) may cause a great deal of dust in Red Rock Canyon.

Finally, this much building has projected more than 20 years of construction traffic on our scenic highway, threatening bicyclists and impairing the amazing views from the Red Rock Scenic Loop.

Every week that we aren’t on tour, one or more members of our band is hiking Turtlehead Peak, rock climbing at Red Rock or visiting Bonnie Springs. We grew up in Las Vegas and have spent countless hours on trails out here. Who doesn’t love Red Rock?

We can’t imagine anyone not wanting to stop this destruction of one of our community’s most special places. Let’s not allow yet another developer to tear down another piece of our history and culture.

We encourage our fans to join us in speaking out against this unwise proposal and ask County Commissioners to preserve Red Rock for future generations.
