Save Red Rock Gathers 30,000 Signatures of Support by Local and Tourist Community to Preserve Red Rock Canyon

Save Red Rock Gathers 30,000 Signatures of Support by Local and Tourist Community to Preserve Red Rock Canyon

Save Red Rock urges the public to attend the Clark County Commission Meeting, Feb. 22


The Save Red Rock (SRR) petition, created by a grassroots citizen’s organization, generated an outpouring support of concerned Clark County residents as it surpassed more than 30,000 signatures to preserve the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area (RRCNCA).

SRR’s initiative, for more than a decade, is to protect the rural and recreational scenic na- ture of Red Rock Canyon. Additionally, one of its goals is to educate the public to con- sider the long term effects this 5,000 proposed home development by Gypsum Resources LLC’s (Gypsum), will bring to this fragile desert ecosystem. Gypsum is asking for ap- proval to rezone and develop land, located on the top of the mountain directly south of the Red Rock visitor’s center. The SRR group, led by Heather Fisher, owner Vegas Cyclery and Escape Adventures, expresses the location will not be able to sustain the im- pact of the high density development, causing increased pollution, traffic and raised water costs for all Vegas Valley residents which will pose a pronounced threat to the notable tourist attraction.

Save Red Rock encourages the public to share its concerns during the next Clark County Planning Commission meeting, scheduled for Feb. 22, 9a.m., as the commissioners decide on the fate of Red Rock Canyon. This crucial meeting follows the SRR and Clark County Commission’s newly scheduled court date, of Feb. 9, where Save Red Rock will be fighting the County’s claim to bar the public from raising issues with the development.

Supporters are encouraged to advocate and support SRR by signing the petition, emailing their County Commissioners and donating to the cause at www.SaveRedRock.com.

“Save Red Rock is encouraged by the support of the community, nature lovers, and pub- lic rights advocates, who all show their desire to protect the rural character of Red Rock Canyon and this majestic feature located in our own backyard. Building a master planned development is not sustainable at this location. Red Rock is filled with recreation, wildlife and peaceful trails, providing a serene get-away from the city that we want to be able to share with our friends and family for years to come,” explains Heather Fisher, SRR president.

About Save Red Rock

Save Red Rock is a group of concerned citizens working to preserve the safety, serenity, and scenic nature of Red Rock Canyon. The group strives to protect the rural character and prioritize recreational and environmental needs over other uses not conducive to the primary uses as determined for the canyon area.

Wolfgang Puck To Open His First Off-Strip Restaurant In Las Vegas

Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill coming to Downtown Summerlin

Wolfgang Puck is heading West…to the westside of Las Vegas! Twenty two years ago, Wolfgang Puck took a gamble on Las Vegas by bringing his famed Los Angeles restaurant Spago to The Strip. The gamble paid off, and the legendary chef is credited with igniting the fine dining revolution in Las Vegas that began in 1992 and continues today. After bringing five additional signature Strip restaurants to Las Vegas, Wolfgang and his Fine Dining Group will again venture into new territory with the opening of Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at Downtown Summerlin, Puck’s first off-Strip restaurant.

“I am so fortunate that guests have embraced and welcomed us as part of the Las Vegas community for more than two decades,” said Wolfgang Puck. “We have such strong loyalty from locals who have been, and continue to be, a driving force behind the success of our six Strip restaurants. It’s exciting for us to move off of The Strip and become an integral part of the neighborhood.”

Opening this fall, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill will showcase the master chef’s contemporary version on the classic, American bar & grill. The approachable lunch and dinner menus will feature Puck’s signature comfort food offering seasonally driven salads, sandwiches, grilled meats, seafood, handmade pasta, and pizzas from the wood-burning oven. Classic and artisanal cocktails, craft beers and wines will make the bar menu.

It’s important to Puck and his managing partners, all who have children and young families of their own, to place a strong emphasis on family dining as well as convenience for guests. To do so, the team will create an extensive children’s menu complete with healthful and enticing options perfect for toddlers to tweens. For guests’ on-the-go, an innovative curbside program will offer ease of pick-up and payment to ensure quick in and out for customers.

The 200-seat restaurant will provide a warm and casual environment in a beautiful setting designed by EDG, who also created the stunning redesign of Spago at The Forum Shops as well as additional Wolfgang Puck fine dining establishments around the country. The design will take inspiration from Santa Monica, Austin and San Francisco, capturing the energetic yet relaxed lifestyle of each city, which is so much a part of Wolfgang Puck. The coloration and materials will pay homage to the desert beauty and towering red cliffs of Las Vegas’ Red Rock Canyon. The stand-alone building will overlook a beautiful park in the shopping environment and will include two open and airy patio seating areas.

The restaurant will feature private dining space as well as various options for events small and large. The team will offer personalized service and attention to deliver unforgettable banquets, events, private functions for adult and children celebrations.

“When we opened Spago in 1992, I, along with managing partner David Robins, quickly rooted ourselves in the Las Vegas community through charitable outreach, building our homes and growing our families here,” said Tom Kaplan, senior managing partner of the Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group. “We have had great interest in bringing one of our signature concepts to the local neighborhood. In all of our projects, it comes down to timing, the right partner and the right location. Downtown Summerlin is certain to become the premier community development in Las Vegas. We look forward to seeing many familiar faces, and hopefully new faces, at the restaurant.”

When complete, Downtown Summerlin will include retail, entertainment, office and multi-family residences, designed to create a vibrant, walkable downtown in the heart of the affluent 22,500-acre master planned community.



Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group
The award-winning restaurants include Spago (Beverly Hills, Las Vegas, Maui and Beaver Creek); CUT (Beverly Hills, Las Vegas, Marina Bay Sands Singapore, 45 Park Lane London and Dubai); Wolfgang Puck at Hotel Bel-Air (Los Angeles); Chinois (Santa Monica); Postrio Bar & Grill (Las Vegas); Trattoria del Lupo (Las Vegas); Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill (Las Vegas and Los Angeles); Wolfgang Puck Pizzeria & Cucina (Las Vegas and Detroit); Wolfgang Puck American Grille at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City; The Source by Wolfgang Puck at the Newseum in Washington, DC; Five Sixty atop Reunion Tower in Dallas, TX; WP24 at The Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles; and Wolfgang Puck Steak (Detroit).
