Port Angeles moves ahead with Lincoln Park plan

July 17th, 2013 - 6:21am

(Port Angeles) -- The city of Port Angeles will take the first steps in a major revamp of Lincoln Park.

On a 6 to 1 vote, the city council last night approved the first step of the Lincoln Park Master Plan.

It has been years in the making and was prompted by the need to deal with trees in the park that have grown into the flight path at nearby Fairchild Airport.

City manager Dan McKeen says last night's approval only moves the plan into the next phase. He says final approval is still subject to negotiations with the Port of Port Angeles over tree removal and costs. It will come back to the city council for final approval.

Both the Port and the Federal Aviation Administration will be picking up a large portion of the cost. City parks and recreation director Corey Delikat says the revised plan will cost about 2 million dollars less than originally planned. The overall cost is expected to run around 16 million dollars.
