Interested members of the public will find below a link to the agreement. The Bureau of Land Management, Arizona State Office (BLM Arizona) has concluded the development of a programming agreement to define the procedures it will use to examine the impact of travel management decisions on historic real estate. The agreement was signed by the Chief of Historic Historic Preservation Officer of Arizona, the California State Historic Preservation Officer and the Executive Director of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation. He is now considered executed. The Arizona Conservation Districts Association (AACD) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) are assisting a working group to identify common sense programmatic approaches that ensure rapid and cost-effective implementation of critical conservation work while preserving Arizona`s rich history and traditions and important cultural resources. BLM Arizona thanked all parties consulted in the development of the agreement. Copies of the executed agreement are currently being sent for the signature of the 53 matching parties identified. Notifying parties have until November 30, 2018 to sign if they wish and return the signature page to BlM`s Arizona office. The goal of the Arizona Conservation Partnership Programmatic Agreement (Cultural Resource PA) is to identify common sense programmatic approaches that ensure rapid and cost-effective implementation of critical conservation work while preserving Arizona`s rich history and traditions and important cultural resources.

These AACD efforts, with support from Arizona`s State Historic Preservation Officer and support from the BLM, will bring together major agricultural producers, public and outdoor office employees, NEPA specialists, tribal representatives and archaeologists to identify problems and solutions.
