Offer to build luxury campsite east of Flagstaff rejected

FLAGSTAFF, Arizona (AP) – The Coconino County Regulatory Agency has turned down an offer to build a luxury campsite with more than 770 units east of Flagstaff.

The proposed Two Guns Resort should include water parks, a pet resort, and a drive-in theater, among other things.

KNAU reports that at a public hearing on Wednesday, regulators questioned developer John Gunderman about a lack of evacuation plans and fire services.

The Two Guns area has no fire district and the city of Winslow declined to provide fire services for Gunderman’s development.

Gunderman said he was in talks with representatives from Navajo Gaming about the use of fire departments from the Twin Arrows Casino, but no official agreement had been reached.

Regulators also expressed concern that Gunderson had not conducted an archaeological survey of the area.

According to KNAU, the Hopi tribe has filed a letter of objection against the luxury campsite project.
