Second archaeologist accuses Arizona SP department of skipping required surveys before development

Another former Arizona State Parks & Trails archaeologist has accused the agency of allowing development on parklands without examining and safeguarding sites and artifacts, as required by law.

Paula Pflepsen, the agency's cultural-resource manager from 2014 to February 2017, said Wednesday that Parks Director Sue Black allowed development projects in at least three state parks without first conducting the required archaeological surveys.
