Land Use Taskforce


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: Some municipalities and counties in our state restrict the use and development of privately owned lands; and throughout Arizona many of our Federal Land Management agencies are being litigated against constraining state and federal lands from being used for the highest and best purposes of Arizonans.

  • Tribal Lands - 19,775,958 acres 27%
  • State Land - 9,230,000 acres 12.7%
  • Remainder ~18%
