Breaking News: Deal Reached to End Construction near Luke AFB

Just saw this come across on Twitter.

From the Associated Press, courtesy of azcentral.com:

Maricopa County officials have agreed to stop new single-family home construction around Luke Air Force Base.

It’s a move that officials hope will make the base a more-attractive candidate for training pilots on the new F-35 fighter.

Thursday’s agreement is a victory for the state and for communities near the base in the suburbs west of Phoenix. Some of them worry that Luke may close if urban encroachment prompts concerns about safety and noise.

Base closures can happen in the Valley and in fact already have. Williams Gateway Airport in southeast Mesa used to Williams Air Force Base.
