Duluth airport officials will soon need public input on a change at the Sky Harbor Airport in Park Point. 

The Federal Aviation Administration and the Minnesota Department of Transportation say trees hindering the approach to the runway necessitate the change. 

Instead of clearing the trees, the airport would like to build the runway into the bay. 

They approved an environmental assessment Tuesday during the Duluth Airport Authority Board meeting.

Airport officials also met with the Tree Commission at City Hall Tuesday and plans to meet with the Park Point Community Club on Thursday. 

A public comment meeting will take place later this summer.
