Port urges movement on Lincoln Park plan

(Port Angeles) -- The Port of Port of Port Angeles is urging the city to move more quickly on approving a plan for Lincoln Park.

Port Commissioners yesterday said they are frustrated with the slow pace of approving a master plan for the city's largest park adjacent to the Port's Fairchild Airport.

A plan for the park is expected to address trees that have grown into the flight path at the airport.

But the port says time is running out to get a federal grant for the airport.

Port Commission President Jim Hallett says the city council must approve the Lincoln Park Master Plan, then the Port must complete an environmental assessment before a $350-thousand dollar grant from the FAA can be awarded by July 31st.

The City's Parks, Recreation and Beautification Commission voted in February to approve the plan, but it hasn't yet gone before the city council.
