Tusayan, a community of roughly 550 residents on the outskirts of what is arguably the most famous national park in the United States, has struck an agreement with Italian developers that could open the way for construction projects including more than 2,000 residences and 3 million square feet (280,000 square metres) of commercial space. The latest fight in a years-long effort to develop private property in and around Tusayan, which is hemmed in by federal lands, is tied to its push for permission to construct utility corridors and pave dirt and gravel U.S. Forest Service roads to allow residents, tourists and others all-season access to the town and adjacent acreage. Tusayan’s development application to the Kaibab National Forest has generated more than 200,000 comments, mostly form letters registering opposition by conservation groups, said Kaibab spokeswoman Jackie Banks.
