PA chamber urges movement on Lincoln Park tree removal

October 15th, 2013 - 6:18am

(Port Angeles) A business group is urging the city and Port of Port Angeles to move forward with removing trees at Lincoln Park that threaten the landing path into nearby Fairchild Airport.

Port Angeles Regional Chamber of Commerce president Brian Kuh presented a letter from the chamber to port commissioners yesterday.

It urged leaders to come to a solution quickly on the trees. The letter outlines the need to take care of the tree problem before the airport operations are curtailed.

Kuh delivered the same message to the Port Angeles city council earlier this month.

There are two major factors to the Lincoln Park Master Plan, the first being removal of the taller trees, which impact the glide path of aircraft approaching the airport, and the second being a multi- million dollar park renovation. Kuh says the two segments can be separated.

Port Commission President John Calhoun yesterday told Kuh he's feeling confident there will be a solution on the trees soon.
