ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Four former Anchorage mayors have asked the city Assembly to hold off on a measure that would allow them to trade Point Woronzof Park to the airport.

Alaska Dispatch News reports (http://bit.ly/1Rm4F7o ) that the mayors sent letters to the Assembly last week asking them to hold off and get more public input on the plan.

The proposed agreement would require the city to sponsor a ballot measure that would remove park dedication for the West Anchorage land so it can be traded for a snow dump and other real estate.

The airport wants Point Woronzof Park to build a new north-south runway.

The agreement would also set up a 25-year lease for the snow dump, which the city currently rents month to month.
