FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Nearly a decade of work by Flagstaff officials to acquire 2,251 acres of state trust land for conservation purposes is paying off.

The Arizona Daily Sun reported that the city on Friday submitted the only bid, one for $11.6 million.

City voters in 2004 approved a bond measure setting $5.5 million aside for purchasing Observatory Mesa, and the city was awarded $6 million of state money for the conservation project.

The city planned a public event for summer to celebrate the purchase.
