The Flagstaff City Council has decided not to push forward a citizen’s petition regarding the Schultz Pass property, once earmarked for affordable housing. A group supporting the idea of making the property open space, collected around 22-hundred signatures to put the discussion on Tuesday’s agenda. The council said the parcel will be looked at in the future to try to figure out what can be done with it. Councilwoman Celia Barotz suggested to the group to do a voter’s initiative to get the issue on a future ballot, so the parcel will have stronger protection so a future council won’t use it in the future for houses or businesses. The group issued a statement, saying they will take council’s advice and go through the process to try and get the matter on a future ballot. Also, all three future agenda item requests passed.
