ACT NOW! The first steps to make the Grand Canyon Escalade Project a reality have been taken. Legislation has officially been submitted to the Navajo Nation and there is now a 5-day public comment period.

Send in your comments against the Grand Canyon tramway by this Friday, Sept 2nd at 5:00 PM! Digital comments may be e-mailed to comments@navajo-nsn.gov.

Thanks for posting this. It would certainly be a tragedy if this happened.

Thanks for posting about this. It would be a real tragedy to see a god damn tram going to the bottom of thee Grand Canyon.

Is anybody who's emailed comments willing to share what they wrote? I'm trying to put something together but am getting a bit stuck...

The above hearing was moved to today, some interesting points to come from the meeting:

- No grazing permittees in the area affected by the proposal have given permission for the Escalade resort to be constructed.
- The entire Navajo Nation workforce costs $22m/yr to fund. It's an insane proposal to imagine that the NN can stump up $65m for this project.
- Most importantly, the Escalade project received zero votes of support from the Navajo Nation Law & Order Committee, all members are opposed to it.

The project still progresses but without the support of the committee. A good result.
