Subject: [CPEO-MEF] ENCROACHMENT: Luke Air Force Base (AZ) overlay zoning
County backs Luke in zoning flap

March 18, 2010

The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved an overlay zoning district protecting the high-noise and accident-potential zones of Luke Air Force Base, its Auxiliary Field 1 and Gila Bend Air
Force Auxiliary Field from residential encroachment.

The approval should finally put to rest a dispute lasting a couple of years between the state and Maricopa County over residentialconstruction near Luke and especially its Auxiliary Field 1.

The legal battle between the supervisors and Attorney General Terry Goddard was eventually joined by Gov. Jan Brewer who played the role of peacemaker and helped broker a deal between the parties that was signed at the Wigwam Golf Resort & Spa in February.
