Town near Grand Canyon rejects push for taller buildings

FLAGSTAFF (AP) – Voters in Tusayan rejected a ballot measure Tuesday that would have led to big changes for the gateway town to Grand Canyon National Park.

The all mail-in election asked residents to decide whether they wanted buildings heights up to 65 feet.

Of the 131 people who cast ballots, 60 supported the measure, while 71 opposed it.

Italy-based Stilo Development Group USA asked the Town Council for the change after the U.S. Forest Service blocked access to two Stilo properties in town.
