APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Closure Still Looming Over New York Trap & Skeet Range!

Friday, June 30, 2006

 

On June 13, introductory resolution IR-1738-2006 was introduced in the Suffolk County Legislature by Legislator Kate Browning.

It would stop all ongoing actions and efforts to reopen the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range.  The range is scheduled to reopen on July 15, 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.  At the last Parks & Recreation Committee meeting held on June 21, the committee decided to table IR-1738-2006 and bring it back up for discussion at the next Parks & Recreation Committee meeting. 

The next meeting is scheduled to be held August 2, at 11:00 a.m., at the Suffolk County Legislative Building, Veterans Memorial Highway, Hauppauge, NY 11788, (631) 853-4000. 

Please call your Legislator and plan to attend this meeting and urge the Committee members to oppose IR-1738-2006.  The Suffolk County Legislature can be reached at (631) 853-4074 or at the following link http://www.co.suffolk.ny.us/legis/. 

Ms. Browning is not giving up her fight on her resolution and 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, a group called the Long Island Pine Barrens Society claims it has jurisdiction over whether or not the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range can reopen.  The Pine Barrens Society has already decided to sue if the Suffolk County Trap & Skeet Range is reopened.

The next meeting of the Pine Barrens Society is scheduled for Wednesday, July 19, which is 4 days after the Suffolk Range is scheduled to open. 

Please keeping checking www.NRAILA.org for updates on this important issue.
