The U.S. Forest Service on Friday rejected an easement that would have enabled a developer to build roughly 2,000 new housing units near the south entrance of Grand Canyon National Park, a prospect that had drawn opposition from park officials and from hundreds of thousands of Americans.

Tusayan, a town of 600, applied for three segments of road and utility easement across a total of 5.7 miles of the Kaibab National Forest. That would have enabled construction by Italian developer Stilo Group.
