Virginia: Goochland County Considering Restrictions on Recreational Shooting!

Friday, August 3, 2007

Please Attend the Public Meeting and Make Your Voice Heard!

 

On Tuesday, August 7, the Goochland County Board of Supervisors is holding a public hearing to consider a change to the county's zoning ordinance regarding areas designated as Agricultural General A-1.

 

The proposed change would directly and negatively impact recreational shooting ranges as every range would have to be approved as "Conditional Use," and thus require a "Special Permit." This measure is yet another attempt to prohibit Orapax, the Commonwealth's largest hunting preserve, from establishing a sport shooting range on its property.

 

Please plan on attending Tuesday's public hearing and be sure to encourage the Board of Supervisors to protect your Second Amendment rights and recreational shooting activities by rejecting the proposed changes to the county zoning ordinance.

 

The public hearing will be held in the village of Goochland's Courthouse in the County Administrative Building (at the corner of Va. RT 6 and Sandy Hook Rd/US 522) at 7:00 p.m.  In addition to attending Tuesday's meeting, please contact the Board of Supervisors and encourage them to protect sport shooting by rejecting this proposal!
