This Week in History: June 21

The Phoenix metro area had been growing for several decades.

The original Community Initiatives Team was made up of, from left, Rusty Mitchell, Eric Binkley, Mike Hanson and Bob Dubsky.

As a result of a number of local development decisions and the 1991 Base Realignment and Closure Commission, Williams Air Force Base, 50 miles east of Luke AFB, closed March 31, 1993. With its closure, development in the East Valley dramatically slowed, but continued to boom in the West Valley.

By 2001, local development decisions began to impact Luke’s training operations. The Community Initiatives Team formally stood up June 16, 2003, by then Col. Philip Breedlove, 56th Fighter Wing commander. He selected Rusty Mitchell to lead the team. Over the last ten years, the team has worked managed-growth issues by improving communication with West Valley cities and other stakeholders.
