(Las Vegas, NV) — Developer Jim Rhodes’ plan to build homes and businesses near Red Rock Canyon has cleared a hurdle. County commissioners have approved initial plans for Rhodes to build more than four-thousand homes and a business park on a 2500-acre hilltop area in the west end of the valley. Critics who attended yesterday’s often-heated meeting say the project will spoil the beauty of the popular recreation area. Rhodes can now begin design and engineering efforts, which need to be approved before
construction can begin.
