Fort, river protected by easement Jelks family, fort and state reach agreement By Bill Hess Sierra Vista Herald/Review (AZ) June 24, 2009SIERRA VISTA - By putting 1,000 acres into an easement so the land will not be developed, Fort Huachuca receives additional encroachment protection, said the co-chairman of the Arizona Military Installations Commission.
"It's more than a win-win, it's a win-win-win," Tom Finnegan said Tuesday. "It's a win for the Jelks, for conservation and the fort."
The Jelks family owns the property west of the post's Rugge-Hamilton Airfield, which is used to primarily train soldiers on unmanned aerial systems in the Black Tower area.
Although the agreement was signed in late May, the information was only recently released.
Involved in the process was Arizona Land and Water Trust, a nonprofit organization that worked with the family, the commission and the Arizona Department of Commerce, "to find a way to permanently protect the portion of the (Diamond C) Ranch in Cochise County," according to a news release issued Tuesday by the trust.
