Residential Use in Military High Noise or Accident Potential Zone:
Residential uses are not allowed within the high noise or accident potential zone of a military airport (Luke Air Force Base) or ancillary military facility (Luke Auxiliary Airfield Number 1 and the Gila Bend Auxiliary Airfield) unless both Luke Air Force Base and Maricopa County mutually agree that the residential use is compatible and consistent with the high noise or accident potential of the military airport or ancillary military facility. To make such a decision, an application for a Use Compatibility and Consistency Determination (UCCD) must be submitted and approved prior to application for a residential building permit.
Please see Chapter 10, Section 1010 (PDF) of Maricopa County Zoning Ordinance for specific details. Check to see if your parcel is in a high noise or accident potential zone.
