The Arizona State Land Commissioner has signed off on an order to reclassify about 2,260 acres of state trust land atop Observatory Mesa as suitable for conservation.

The decision by Vanessa Hickman is an important step in the city of Flagstaff’s attempt to acquire a matching grant through the Arizona State Park’s Growing Smarter grants program.

In 2004, Flagstaff voters approved a $5.5 million bond to acquire state trust lands on the mesa and preserve them as open space.
