Navajos submit building plans for land near Flagstaff-area casino

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- The Navajo Nation has big plans for the land surrounding its newest casino east of Flagstaff.

The tribe wants to build a gas station, outlet mall, RV park, restaurants, an entertainment complex and housing on 70 acres.

The Arizona Daily Sun reported that the plans would require approval from Coconino County because the land is not tribal trust land. If given the OK, the project could take up to 10 years to build.

Navajo officials said they hoped the development would draw in more tourists, travelers from Interstate 40 and local residents.

The tribe opened the Twin Arrows Navajo Casino Resort in May.
