Anyway...good luck with your Shangri-La...I mean...look what McCulloch did with Lake Havasu City. I mean...there is no lake or running natural water in Holbrook and it is quite a ways from CA with only the Petrified Forest as a natural tourist attraction, but hey, could happen.
Holbrook, AZ is more a "Land of Enchantment" area with beautiful sunsets similar to New Mexico. It can also be the new Santa Fe, NM as well. At elevation of only 5,082 ft., it helps a lot to block out extreme heat with pressure winds to blow through, but still be tiny-bit warmer and less-snow than Albuquerque, NM that is only 250 ft. higher (not much difference).

Navajo & Hopi Indian Reservations also have one of the highest birth rates per capita in this whole country. When the kids grow up, they can look forward to Holbrook, AZ as the new economically engine city (replacing Farmington, NM due to poor location), while keeping the diverse and progressive movement too.

(All just early talk right now...)

Ahh, but the Hopi reservation is inside the borders of the Navajo reservation.

Um, no. It is not.

OP is making a lot of good points to continue moving forward with the Sitgreaves County project.

That's right... Something big and great is coming, if it moves forward being a separate county.

Residents want to propose Show Low, AZ as the new county seat, but I will try to oppose it.

Only problem with replacing Farmington is that pesky lack of an oil industry in Holbrook. Maybe you can subdivide into ranchettes...like 40 acre plots and advertise that to get it going. Ya know...40 acres of wide open space in Northern Arizona! The next Santa Fe! I am sure that will drum up some business.

I see no future with the oil business. As presidential elections are becoming more divided, intense, and demanding, we are required to build clean-powered energy sources away from fossil fuels in the near future. Due to enormous amount of open land space outside Holbrook, AZ, developers can build hundreds of thousand of new solar panels to power and store energy into generators for many people around this region, reaching up north to Flagstaff, AZ max. (Sorry, there's not enough land space to build in Flagstaff anymore, if someone is curious and questioning about this thread.)

Right on with the ranchettes... I don't plan to be the first mayor of the new Holbrook big city, but I'm just a founding father of the pre-development process to attract new developers and businesses. I work for the music entertainment industry, so most likely I will stick to operating Burning Man recreations, concert venues, hotel/bar resorts, and artist creation neighborhood copying Santa Fe, NM. Or, Arizona's version of Austin, TX.
