FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — The Flagstaff City Council has responded to public
protests by scrapping part of a proposal to sell four pieces of city-owned
property to raise money to pay for building a new courthouse.
The council voted 4-3 Tuesday night to not sell a 20-acre parcel at the corner
of Schultz Pass and Elden Lookout roads.
According to the Arizona Daily Sun, the council backed
off from selling the property after hearing complaints that hikers and other use

The council delayed the sale of a 26-parcel to hear public comment but approved
the sale of two empty firehouses.
