Utah Public Lands Policy Coordination Office
Utah Public Lands Policy Coordination Office is an organization based in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Over 64% of lands within Utah are managed by the Federal government. Another 10% of lands within Utah are managed by State government. The Public Lands Policy Coordination Office (PLPCO) coordinates the state's interests on public lands issues and acts to ensure that state and local interests are considered in the management of public lands.
PLPCO's other main responsibility is, in cooperation with the Division of State History, to ensure that surveys and excavations of the state's archaeological and anthropological resources are undertaken in a coordinated, professional, and organized manner, through administration of the state archaeological survey and excavation permitting system.
