Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Luke Air Force Base (AZ) land swap
Land swap proposed for Luke AFB

A land swap deal to trade federally owned parcels in the far West Valley for private property next to Luke Air Force Base soon will be put forward in Washington and could involve as many as 6,000 acres.

Arizona Sen. John McCain and Glendale Congressman Trent Franks are putting together a land exchange plan that would swap parcels near Luke for other valuable West Valley real estate away from the military installation.

The McCain-Franks plan will be introduced soon in Washington, D.C., in hopes of final approval from Congress and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management next year.

Details of the land swap are being worked out, but it will entail trading federally owned land near the planned Loop 303 freeway, the White Tank Mountains and possibly Lake Pleasant in the West Valley for private land owned by developers near Luke.
