The petition will be handed to the Mayor Jón Gnarr before the September 20 deadline for public comments on the general land use plan for the area, mbl.is reports.

The current plan allows for the relocation of the airport and the building of up to 800 new apartments in Vatnsmýri. Discussions on the issue are ongoing.
