Virginia: Goochland Planning Commission to Revisit Sporting Clays Range Application

Monday, October 15, 2012

The Goochland Planning Commission will convene on Thursday, October 18 at 6:30 p.m. for its second public hearing on Orapax Hunting Preserve’s application for a special use permit to open a sporting clays range on their hunting preserve.  The public notice for this application can be found here.

At the previous hearing on September 20, more than 100 people attended and many testified to express support for gun rights.  Opponents of the sporting clays range cited noise, decreased quality of life and decreased property values as their major objections despite the fact that the sporting clays range will be positioned on a nearly 700-acre hunting preserve.  At the conclusion of this meeting, the Goochland County Planning Commission deferred making a decision and requested a noise test be administered on the property.

The October 18th hearing will be held in the Board meeting room at the Goochland County Administration Building located at 1800 Sandy Hook Road.

If you are unable to attend the meeting, please continue to contact planning commission members in support of the Orapax Sporting Clays Range.  Contact information for members of the County Planning Commission can be found here.
