What is the College Park Airport Safety Project?

The College Park Airport is owned and operated by the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission. Per Maryland regulations, trees in designated areas near the College Park Airport must be trimmed every four to eight years. The College Park Airport Safety Project is an effort led by M-NCPPC to ensure those requirements are met.
