SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Developers hoping to open a Western-themed town
complete with saloon and museum in Scottsdale are looking elsewhere.
The Arizona Republic reported Stagecoach Gap LLC said
negotiations with the city have stalled, forcing the company seek a new site for
a proposed $38 million wild West park.
The company’s investors submitted a proposal last year to construct the
makeshift town on 80 acres of leased land at 94th Street and Bell Road.
John Sellers, a principal at Stagecoach, said they never heard from the city
about why they couldn’t move the project forward.
A Scottsdale manager of development said the City Council decided officials
could also talk with other parties interested in the land.
The company is soliciting proposals from other municipalities about hosting
the Western town.
