APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Action Needed in Defending New York's Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range!

Friday, June 16, 2006


On June 13th, introductory resolution, IR-1738-2006 was introduced in the Suffolk County Legislature by Legislator Kate Browning, which would stop all ongoing actions and efforts to reopen the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range.

The range is/was scheduled to reopen on July 1st, 2006, but if this resolution passes out of the Parks & Recreation Committee and is brought to the floor of the full County Legislature it may not open at all.  

The next Parks & Recreation Committee Meeting is scheduled for:  

Wednesday, June 21, 11:00 AM
at the Suffolk County Legislative Building,
Veterans Memorial Highway, Hauppauge, NY.  11788,
(631) 853-4000.

Please plan to attend this public hearing and urge the Committee members to oppose IR-1738-2006.  

Only large numbers of people can and will influence the members of this committee, of which Ms. Browning is a member.  We can and we must persuade the committee and/or the County legislature to do the right thing and reopen the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range.  

If the County government wasn't enough to deal with, now we also have a group called the Pine Barrens Commission which claim it too might have jurisdiction over whether or not the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range can reopen without its permission.

The next meeting of the Pine Barrens Commission is scheduled for: 

Wednesday, June 21, 2:00 PM
a
t the Brookhaven Town Hall,
One Independence Hill, Farmingville, NY.  11738,
(631) 451-9100.

Unfortunately, the Suffolk County Parks & Recreation Committee meeting and the Pine Barrens Commission meeting are being held on the same day and in two different places, but attendance is needed at both meetings.  Please try to attend both meetings.  If you are unable to attend, please call to express your strong opposition to closing the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range.
