The Tusayan Town Council for the second time in recent years has submitted a road and utility easement plan to the Kaibab National Forest. If approved, the draft proposal could eventually open the door for a large development project near Grand Canyon National Park. KNAU’s Ryan Heinsius reports.


The Kaibab National Forest will extend the personal-use firewood collection season on part of its Tusayan Ranger District.
