(Port Angeles) -- The Port Angeles city council takes up a major revamp of the city's largest park.
Tonight, the council is expected to vote on a master plan for Lincoln Park.
Part of the plan deals with trees that have grown too high and now interfere with the landing approach at nearby Fairchild Airport.
The Port of Port Angeles paid for development of the master plan, but it's up to the city to sign off any final changes at the park.
The city's commission on parks has recommended the council approve the plan.
The city would approach changes at the park in phases. The first phase alone could cost more than 14 million dollars.
That phase would remove some of the trees in the park. Many would be replaced with lower-canopy vegetation.
