County Seeks Opinions on Proposed Southwest Park
County Seeks Opinions on Proposed Southwest Park

Clark County wants to hear what people living in the southwest part of the Las Vegas valley have to say about plans for parks and recreational areas in the Southwest Ridge area.

The county is holding an open house from 4 to 7 p.m. May 3 at Forbuss Elementary School, 8601 South Grand Canyon Drive, to talk about the plans. The county is looking at developing three areas with a combined 1,200 acres of the foothills near Summerlin South and Rhodes Ranch, between Tropicana Avenue and Blue Diamond Road.

“The Southwest Ridge is a beautiful area with sweeping views of the Las Vegas valley,” Commission Chair Susan Brager said. “I hope many area residents will take advantage of this opportunity to influence the design of the parks and the recreational amenities to be chosen by attending the open house and completing the online survey.”

The County Comprehensive Planning Department wants to hear from interested citizens especially those living in the area. They want to hear from groups that use recreational areas and developers planning projects for the southwest. Snacks, drinks and children’s activities will be provided at the open house.

 Anyone who wants to contribute to planning can take the survey and go to the open house. To see more on the county's plans, go to clarkcountynv.gov
