Flagstaff gets state grant for land acquisition

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — A $6 million state grant will help Flagstaff buy nearby
state trust land to keep it as open space to help keep light pollution away from
Lowell Observatory.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports that the city will use
money from a voter-approved $5.5 million bond issue to match the grant approved
by the state parks board.

The trust land sought by the city is located on Observatory Mesa.
