SHARED OWNERSHIP - WHEN PARTS ARE GREATER THAN THE WHOLE
Located on the northwestern edge of the Colorado Plateau in Utah, there is evidence of Native Americans dating back 8,000 years. In an area now known as Nine Mile Canyon, a Native American tribe known as the Fremont Culture made this their home as early as 300 A.D. This prehistoric culture, primarily hunters and farmers, utilized quite sophisticated methods including irrigation for farming. By 700 A.D., villages had been established and the Fremont region flourished until around 1250 A.D. It is thought that more aggressive Ute, Paiute and Shoshoni peoples that migrated to the area may have displaced the tribe or absorbed the Fremont into their own culture.
If you are considering purchasing land that is protected under a conservation easement, understanding the fundamentals of these agreements is a valuable asset to determining if the land is right for you. It is always best to start by discussing your questions and concerns with a qualified real estate broker or an attorney that has experience in conservation easements. They can help you find answers about what it is intended for, what rights and restrictions are in place and its specific terms and provisions.

Cooperative Wildlife Management Units (CWMU’s) are hunt areas consisting of mostly private lands that have been authorized for the specific purpose of managing big game animals. This Utah government program has opened more than two million acres of private land to the public. In order to qualify for the program, landowners must have a minimum of 5,000 contiguous acres to manage deer, pronghorn or turkey and a minimum of 10,000 contiguous acres for elk or moose. Private landowners may join together to form a single CWMU.
