The meeting of the advisory group to the City Council will start at 6 p.m. at the Vern Burton Community Center, 308 E. Fourth St.
Commissioners will hear a presentation on the proposed Lincoln Park Master Plan given by representatives of Seattle-based landscape architectural firm HBB and the Port of Port Angeles.
The plan calls for the removal of some park trees because they obstruct the flight path to one of the runways of the nearby William R. Fairchild International Airport, which is owned by the port.
Proposed removal of trees has drawn strong criticism from some residents.
The plan must be approved by the City Council, which owns the 147-acre Lincoln Park.
HBB, the firm with which the port had contracted to develop the $150,000 master plan, presented designs for possible improvements to Lincoln Park at an open house last October.
Juliet Vong of HBB estimated then that the Lincoln Park improvements — which would include an upgraded system of bike and foot trails, an expanded wetland, additional parking, new playground areas and a new entrance off Lauridsen Boulevard — could cost about $24 million.
