Navajo Plan RV Park In Ariz. Development
The Navajo tribe plans to expand its development around a new casino outside Flagstaff, Ariz., adding an RV park, a gas station, outlet mall, big box retailers, housing development, restaurants and an entertainment complex complete with a theater, mini golf, arcade, bowling alley and laser tag.
The plans also call for 128 units of townhomes and condos plus another 32 lots for houses, the Arizona Daily Sun reported.
The 70-acre complex is called The Outlook at Glittering Mountain.
And because it’s not tribal trust land, the county will have to give final approval.
The residences and some of the retail are designed to service the casino’s 600 current employees, but the Navajo Nation also hopes to draw more tourists, interstate travelers and local residents.
Tribal officials say some of the construction funds have already been secured. The first phase of building is expected to be complete by next year, with $30 million to $50 million worth of construction on the entertainment pavilion and some retail. The final size of the entertainment complex will depend on the results of a feasibility study.
