The Air Force Civil Engineer Center held an event celebrating the final milestones of the environmental cleanup program at the former Williams Air Force Base on Tuesday, Mar. 24. Among guest speakers, the event included a video highlighting how “Willie,” as the base was affectionately known, has been successfully redeveloped in a major economic engine for the community. Today the region has more jobs, more diversification and more economic impact then when the base was open. Chandler-Gilbert Community College, which has a comprehensive campus at that location and utilizes some of the former buildings, is featured in the video.
