LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

City’s growth is unsustainable

Home Builders Research announced the sale of 7,348 new homes through the first half of the year in Las Vegas.

This equates to approximately 15,000 new homes this year. Allowing 3.5 residents per home, that means an additional 61,000-plus new residents.

How does this uncontrolled building help our water problem with Lake Mead at its lowest point ever?
