PABA sending letters urging Lincoln Park tree removal

(Port Angeles) – The Port Angeles Business Association will send a letter to the local government leaders urging some trees at Lincoln Park should come down.
The PABA decided yesterday to weigh in on the debate over the trees that have grown too tall and are now impinging on the flight path at the nearby Fairchild Airport.
The business group will send letters to the city and port of Port Angeles as well as Clallam County.
The letter points out Kenmore Air is losing $100,000 a year because its planes must fly to the west in order to avoid the trees.
A plan for the Lincoln Park trees was put on hold last summer after the city was delivered a petition signed by 2000 people urging them to leave the trees alone.
City and port officials say they are still talking about potential solutions and an environmental assessment could be coming soon.
