Developers Confluence Partners want to provide the more than 5 million annual visitors to the Grand Canyon National Park with a new 420-acre attraction. Their plans for the canyon's rim include a multimedia complex with an IMAX theater, retail shops, hotels, an RV park and a gondola tram that would take visitors 1.6 miles to the canyon floor in ten minutes. Confluence Partners has also drawn up plans for a "Riverwalk" on the canyon floor that would include elevated connected walkways, a food pavilion, a tramway station, a terraced seating area and a wastewater package plant.

I agree, the people that put forth the effort to get there typically take care not to damage the area they are visiting.
Express tourists are just to bloody ignorant, they would trash the sacred areas without even knowing it because they got there with no effort.

I'm all for it jobs and money. From 2 miles away you won't know it's there. 420 acres out of over 1,220,000 in the park alone. You'll have to go out of your way to find it.
