Mission Statement

The mission of the Alliance for Responsibility in the Environment of Northern
Arizona (ARENA) is to help keep the rural communities of Northern Arizona safe,
healthy, and sustainable as the area addresses energy, mining, and other industries
locating here. Conscientious stewardship and conservation of local environments,
including natural resources, living conditions, and economies, are essential to preserve
and maintain the ecological integrity of the region as well as quality of life.
ARENA members study and evaluate the environmental consequences of proposed
projects, including effects on human health and socioeconomic conditions. In addition,
ARENA members monitor and assess the impacts of choices already made and projects
implemented in the area, and study cumulative impacts. The studies are the basis for
public education and outreach, participation in community development activities
and with regulatory agencies.
