KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - An animal park will be up and running in the next three to four years on land supervisors unanimously rezoned for commercial and recreational use.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports (http://bit.ly/1cxyeF5) the vote Monday came after a discussion about water availability, waste management and the environmental impact for the $40 million project.

Wild Planet Animal Park is a project of Jonathan Kraft, who owns Keepers of the Wild animal sanctuary about 25 miles east of Kingman.

Kraft says environmental reviews have been submitted to Arizona’s land management and game and fish departments. He says the animals at the 2,200-acre park will be separated by a fence along the three miles of border from indigenous animals like bighorn sheep.
