ACTION

A multinational developer is trying to capitalize off the Grand Canyon by building a huge mega-mall in the small town of Tusayan, Ariz., just south of the park. We need your help to say: Not now, not ever.

Just the idea of it is sickening: 3 million square feet of commercial lots, 2,100 residential units, hotels, shops -- and all just a mile outside the park boundary.

The development cannot proceed, however, without right-of-way access from the U.S. Forest Service.

Act now to urge the Forest Service to stop this project in its tracks. Any proposal that does harm to the Grand Canyon is not in the public interest.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

This sprawling "mega complex," as Stilo Development Group calls it, will overwhelm the park's already crumbling infrastructure, threaten water supplies, and suburbanize America's greatest natural treasure. Just the idea of it is sickening: 3 million square feet of commercial lots, 2,100 residential units, hotels, shops -- and all just a mile outside the park boundary.

Grand Canyon National Park's superintendent calls this proposal one of "the greatest threats to the Grand Canyon in the 96-year history of the park" -- and rightly so. The water it will take to feed this sprawl will diminish flows at sacred Havasu Falls and at springs within the park, including Indian Gardens on the Bright Angel Trail.

The development cannot proceed, however, without right-of-way access from the U.S. Forest Service.

Act now to urge the Forest Service to stop this project in its tracks. Any proposal that does harm to the Grand Canyon is not in the public interest.
