Protect the Grand Canyon

Action: Wildlife Conservation

January 6, 2016   Action Alert ID# 320

 

The Forest Service is currently weighing a permit application from the tiny Town of Tusayan, Arizona, to improve roads and build utilities in the Kaibab National Forest to enable development of a sprawling housing and commercial resort complex on the doorstep of Grand Canyon National Park.

Tell the Forest Service to reject this damaging development proposal now.

The purpose of the proposed roads, sewers, water and other utilities is to literally pave the way for construction of a huge development benefiting Italian developer, Gruppo Stilo USA, at the expense of Grand Canyon National Park.

Because the development may tap and mine groundwater that feeds creeks, springs and seeps in the Grand Canyon, the National Park Service has labeled the project one of the two biggest threats to the park in its nearly 100-year history.

The giant development would also increase car and plane traffic and light and noise pollution in Grand Canyon National Park, and destroy habitat that supports wildlife.

Speak out now to protect the Grand Canyon.

Earthjustice has fought for decades to protect the Grand Canyon, and won. Now you can help us do so again.

A giant development bigger than the Mall of America—with all the traffic, noise and pollution it would bring—would have significant, damaging impacts on the national forest, the park, the visitor experience and wildlife. It just doesn’t belong next to the Grand Canyon.
