Real Estate Management is characterized by a diverse assortment of programs and activities for management of state trust land that don’t qualify under either of the Minerals Management, Forest Management, or Agriculture and Grazing programs. Management includes temporary permitting and leasing, as well as permanent transfers and acquisitions, and issuance and/or sharing of access and easements. The Real Estate Management Bureau also also reviews short-term permits, leases, and easements on, over, and under state-owned navigable waterways. More information on specific programs can be accessed through the links in the left column of this page.
