New ARO fee structure items uploaded last week include two new negative surveys, two new surveys associated with four new sites, three new PRFs, and one site card update. Updates to AZ U:9:23(ASM) and AZ U:9:48(ASM), recently consolidated by the ARO, were uploaded, along with an updated boundary for AZ T:4:256(ASM) and a corrected boundary for NA24410. From the backlog, 44 projects associated with 104 new sites and 162 basic site updates were uploaded. Site card updates and potential boundary updates for these backlog site recordings are pending ARO curation.

In addition, the historic structures, historic districts, City of Phoenix site buffer, and ASLD land ownership layers in AZSITE were updated. The historic strutures data were updated to remove non-historic structures; one historic district boundary was corrected and another added; recently uploaded sites within the City of Phoenix were incorporated into the City of Phoenix buffer layer, which will be updated weekly moving forward; and the land ownership layer was updated to reflect the most recent data from ASLD.

The SHPO has provided AZSITE with updated project, site, and NRHP data. These were used to add approximately 2,500 new NRHP decisions to AZSITE last week, and will be used to populate the SHPO Site Report and SHPO Project Report pages viewable from the AZSITE web mapping application. These data transfers will be done on a regular basis moving forward.

Last week, 16 basic site updates associated with recent backlog uploads were processed. Site card updates and potential boundary updates for these backlog site recordings are pending ARO curation. In addition, five backlog projects and 8 related backlog new sites were uploaded. Nine NRHP decisions for recently uploaded sites were added to AZSITE from SHPO data.

In addition, errors with 46 site geometries and 37 project geometries were addressed, and TRS and county data were generated for those sites having geometries in AZSITE but lacking this information. This amounted to about 24,000 TRS entries for 20,000 sites, and county entries for about 53,000 sites.

Finally, 192 NRHP decisions for recently uploaded sites were added to AZSITE from SHPO data.

In addition, errors with 24 site geometries in AZSITE were addressed, and a number of duplicate site geometries were cleaned up. Finally, UTM centerpoints and USGS quad entries were generated for those sites having geometries in AZSITE but lacking this information. This amounted to 1,021 sites.
