Gila Community dispute over dust drifts across agencies, jurisdictions

By Wayne Schutsky | Ahwatukee Foothills News

In the Sun Lakes community, a seemingly small dispute over a one-mile dirt road has spiraled out of control as residents butt heads with the Gila River Indian Community and Maricopa County in a conflict that has drawn interest from agencies as far-reaching as the EPA.

The conflict surrounds Old Price Road, a stretch of unpaved road just under one mile in length that lies within GRIC boundaries adjacent to a Global Native agricultural operation to the west and Sun Lakes to the east.

In recent years, increased traffic on the road has sent plumes of dust into several homes in the neighboring Sun Lakes community, drawing the ire of some residents.
