The Navajo reservation surrounds the Hopi reservation bring the Navajo Rez much closer to Holbrook.

(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.
You do realize that oil is used for a LOT more than just gasoline, right?

Well, oil can always be transported by trucks. No big deal...

You haven't finished building out your casino megopolis in Kingston, NV., and now you want to start in Holbrook, AZ?

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.

Whatever water is left after that, I am willing to bet that someone already has rights to it.
I thought that coal plant was decommissioned.
