LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) - Monday night people living near Bowman Field receive more information about the Louisville Regional Airport Authority's intent to trim or remove trees to comply with new FAA safety standards.

About 500 people in areas surrounding Bowman Field, including the city of Kingsley and Seneca Gardens, received a notification letter saying their trees may be affected.

Many people are concerned that this plan is being implemented to allow larger planes to use the airport.

Tax dollars, federal money and the Louisville Airport Authority would pay for the trimming and removal. They are unsure of which trees would have to be trimmed or removed and believe they will need a surveyor to examine them, which is expected to be done sometime this coming summer.
