Subject: [CPEO-MEF] ENCROACHMENT: Luke Air Force Base (AZ) deal
Deal may end zoning fight near Luke Air Force Base
County panel may get agreement that restricts new homes

A dispute between the state and Maricopa County over residential construction near Luke Air Force Base may soon be over if a negotiated agreement makes it to the county Board of Supervisors.

It would be good news for Luke proponents, who are working to bring the F-35 Lightning II to the base, which they believe is the logical place to put an aircraft that replaces Luke's aging F-16 jet fighters. Luke pumps $2.1 billion a year into the state's economy.

The agreement would be signed by Gov. Jan Brewer and Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard, then would have to be approved by county supervisors. The supervisors could call a special meeting to consider the agreement this week.
