FLAGSTAFF -- An array of groups is urging state regulators to deny water permits needed for a major resort, commercial and residential development at the small community at the entrance to the Grand Canyon National Park's South Rim.

The Italian holding company that wants the Arizona Corporation Commission to approve plans to drill wells to supply the development recently asked for a delay. The Stilo Group says it is trying to address the concerns of a variety of groups and working to get access to federal lands it needs for the project.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports the project was approved by the Tusayan Town Council in October 2011.

But the plans for water wells are opposed by the Havasupai Tribe, the Grand Canyon National Park's superintendent and the Sierra Club.
