Mansfield Municipal Airport (1B9), Massachusetts: Runway Getting Cleaned Up

The Mansfield Municipal Airport's runway 4/22 is having some trees cleared after Selectmen already approved improvements for the main runway.

Selectmen unanimously voted to allow the Airport Commission to have the trees from the airport's grass covered runway which runs perpendicular to the Fruit Street entrance. The motion was approved in perpetuity, meaning the commission will be able to have trees cleared in the future without the permission of the selectmen.

Most of the trees that need to be cleared are on town property except for a few on private land, but the commission is talking to the owner about cutting them down. The commission will most likely dig up the tree stumps and plant grass.
