Land Use Taskforce

To preserve private property rights


Definition: Land Use is the scientific, aesthetic and orderly disposition of land, resources, facilities, and services with a view to securing the physical, economic and social efficiency, health and well-being of urban and rural communities.

Challenges/Issues: Arizona covers 72.6 million acres and is the 6th largest state (after Alaska, Texas, California, Montana, and New Mexico). Land for future growth ought to be abundant, however approximately 12% of the state lands are in private hands. More land in private hands would expand the tax base and provide for more orderly growth around Arizona's largest cities.

  • Federally owned 53,900,000 acres (74%)
  • State-owned 9,800,000 acres (14%)
  • Privately owned 8,800,000 acres (12%)

4Tucson Goal: To preserve private property rights and to encourage the conversion of 25% of publicly owned land into private ownership, resulting in the expansion of the tax base.
