Arizona tribe considers redeveloping airstrip

The Gila River Indian Community of Arizona is considering redeveloping an old airstrip.

A tribal spokesperson said plans for the Memorial Airstrip are years away. The strip could serve local businesses and residents.

But neighbors of the reservation are concerned about safety and noise. They are asking the state's Congressional delegation to intervene because they say the tribe hasn't shared enough information.
