Luke land-swap plan dies Those involved blame McCain's non-support for failure of big trade
David Madrid The Arizona Republic June 4, 2006
Land exchanges targeting property around Luke Air Force Base apparently are dead, with backers of the plan saying a lack of support from Sen. John McCain spelled their death knell.
So, while agricultural landowners in other parts of the Valley are selling their parcels at premium prices to housing developers, the owners of farmland bordering Luke, where residential development is severely restricted, say they are shouldering the burden of keeping the base free of further residential encroachment.
The land trades would have financially compensated them for that. The trades were one of 27 recommendations created by the Governor's Military Facilities Task Force, which spent six months crafting a strategy to protect the state's bases from closure.
