I am very concerned about the possible closure of the airport trail. There should be public meetings about this issue especially because so many people and canines derive so much pleasure from this trail. If this is in response to safety concerns then there are other options such as making the airport perimeter more secure with better fencing, etc.
Closing the trail will not stop any would-be persons who want to access the airport with the current fencing that is in place. It will only deny the citizens of Juneau from enjoying the beauty of the wetlands.
