Residents concerned about increased activity at D-M

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A group tasked with creating public policy to help shape Tucson's future could get an earful tonight from residents living near Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. 

Some residents are fuming after the Tucson city council voted unanimously to approve a resolution to "support the missions and long term viability of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base... when it comes to their existing and future military missions and assignments." 

Residents will be demanding public comment on the issue during the Plan Tucson meeting held at city hall at 6 p.m. tonight.  They feel the resolution to approve "future" missions should not have come to a vote without public input.

For details on tonight's meeting, watch Fox 11 at 9 p.m. and KOLD News 13 Live at 10 p.m.
