I worry each day before I take my walk on the dike trail at the airport that the trees on the perimeter will have been cut down and the habitat of many birds and animals destroyed. My fear is based on past incidents of tree cutting without first informing the public. As a Juneau resident for 46 years and a user of the airport trail for almost as many years, I have enjoyed its beauty and its wildlife.
If the Empire would investigate and publish a summary of the proposals for expansion and safety and list the names of the people responsible for deciding the future of the airport area, it would help to alleviate my concerns.
