on Nov. 7 ballot
The Canyon Forest Vill-age development slated for Tusayan is officially on the Nov. 7 ballot.
The Coconino County Recorder’s office verified the signatures collected by the political action committee “It’s Just Too Much!”
The signatures of 2,800 voters were needed to qualify the CFV referendum for the Nov. 7 ballot. Nearly 6,400 were turned in.
The Coconino County Board of Supervisors approved CFV in March.
“We’re confident that the voters of Coconino County will believe, as we do, that Canyon Forest Village is just too big for the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park and would have an extremely negative impact on northern Arizona communities,” said Rick Lopez, chairman of the committee and Flagstaff city councilman.
“It’s Just Too Much!” will be establishing a campaign office in Flagstaff in the next couple of months in anticipation of the November vote.
Earthquake activity in the Grand Canyon area continued last week when tremors were recorded in the North Rim area.
A flurry of quakes occurred on the night of May 2 along Bright Angel Canyon, the Arizona Earthquake Informa-tion Center in Flagstaff reported. The largest quake measured 2.5 on the Richter Scale.
Bright Angel Canyon is located about nine miles northeast of Grand Canyon Village.
A larger earthquake of 3.2 also occurred in the Tuba City area.
to pave GC road
The Hualapai Tribe announced plans to finish paving a 14.1-mile section of road leading to Grand Canyon West.
The tribe hopes to complete the project by 2002 to accommodate more tourists. The Hualapais hope to increase the number of visitors to Grand Canyon West, which currently runs at around 100,000 a year.
Plans for a destination resort with at least 200 hotel rooms are also in the works.
