“The Public Lands Initiative is a locally-driven effort to bring resolution to some of the most challenging land disputes in the state of Utah. The initiative is rooted in the belief that conservation and economic development can coexist and make Utah a better place to live, work, and visit.
Achieving success in the Public Lands Initiative requires a commitment to guiding principles and clearly articulated goals. Adherence to the three C’s of Collaboration, Compromise, and Creativity will ensure that the initiative stays on track and produces the types of outcomes that benefit local communities, the state of Utah, and the nation at-large.”
