Strong turnout- the chambers are full of red shirts and people against this project! 11 mins till mtg- this project is listed at midway, but will likely be pushed to the end to accommodate public comment. Anticipate a vote somewhere near noon. John Wilder

All mixed up pitch 3
I recently heard back from one of the commissioners who is against it. Write them all but specifically write this one too asking for other ways to make an impact with the others.
Here was the reply:
Thank you for your email. On behalf of Commissioner Giunchigliani:
As you know, I voted against allowing the development last year and my concerns have not changed.

Regards,
Marcie Whelan
Executive Assistant to
Commissioner Giunchigliani

PS: these were the emails that I wrote to. Hopefully they are correct:

Item has come up for discussion. Chambers are FULL of those opposed.

Staff has recommended approval of this project- dependent on two concerns. 1) no industrial use. 2) no commercial tours. 3) timing of project is a concern, as it is dependent on the blm land swap for the commercial portions of the project- if the swap doesn't happen, no approval. Staff also recommends fewer than 7,200 homes be built.

Public comment is about to begin.

Do you see any riot police nearby, in case this thing goes sour?

Economic analyst is up- it's a $2.5 billion project over 20 years. This is psychotic- and even more insane than I had guessed- sure the jobs and economic impact are theoretically large, but whether it's appropriate or even likely to occur is the question.

Okay, real public comment time. This should be interesting.

Stakeholders are commenting, Commission Chair Brager is being hostile to the crowd, saying she gets it and doesn't want to hear cheering or applause for comments.

Brager and Sisolak are going to be for this project. We'll have to see about the others. 3 minutes per person allowed, hundreds want to speak.

How long is the floor going to be open for public comments?

Any chance of some pictures?

Lots of intelligent, well thought out objections. Giunchiglani and Scow should vote against Rhodes. That leaves Collins, Brown, and Weekly.

Lots of folks still to go with their objections- by law, anyone who wants to speak is allowed 3 minutes. If all 300 speak, that's 15 hours! I'm guessing somewhere around a couple hours.

No pics- I'm strapped to an iPhone that I shouldnt even have in here.

Thanks for the blogging, John, much appreciated.

Is the BLM land swap another possible venue for our objections?

Looks like Collins will vote for- he just interrupted the public to chastise us for speakig to the insanity of the project from a fiscal standpoint. That means we'll need Weekly and Brown to vote against.

The BLM land swap is a possible place of objection, but I don't believe the BLM must go through a public comment phase for a land swap. I could be wrong on that, though.

So far, three people have spoken for. The line against is literally out the doors of the commission chambers.

Only a handful of commenters left- should see a vote soon. John Wilder

This is going to be close if my impression is correct. I think Brown is against it. Weekly is the biggest unknown at this point. 5 people left.

A suprising amount of people have spoken for this development- mostly on the premise of job creation, but the forethought on what happens after has been neglected from those folks.
