Flagstaff anticipates surge of construction
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Flagstaff officials expect a surge of construction in the northern Arizona city in 2013.
A briefing paper prepared for a City Council budget retreat indicates that city officials are optimistic that more than 20 construction projects will break ground this year.
According to the Arizona Daily Sun, the projects range from small townhome projects to two new shopping centers.
The newspaper reported the document does not list specific companies but refers to "an outdoor outfitter" and a new 70,000-square-foot grocery store.
The list was generated from talks that city officials have had with property owners, developers and others.
Planning director Jim Cronk says some of the projects are in preliminary stages.
