Colorado: Open Houses Scheduled to Discuss Recreational Shooting Along Front Range

Monday, June 17, 2013

The counties of Boulder, Larimer, Gilpin and Clear Creek have joined in partnership with the US Forest Service and Colorado Parks and Wildlife to develop criteria to guide land managers in identifying appropriate places for recreational target shooting.  The North Front Range Recreational Sport Shooting Management Partnership has scheduled four open houses (listed below) to provide information to the public about this project.  The Partnership wants feedback from the public about the criteria, which could include the distance from the shooting site to residential areas and other recreation sites (i.e. campgrounds), ease of access to the site, availability of parking, potential environmental impacts, fire hazards and other considerations to identify sites that provide safe and responsible shooting.  The project is also designed to reduce conflicts that have arisen with recreational shooting and other recreation activities and with homeowners along the boundary lines of public land.

All NRA members who depend on public land, whether it is Federal, state or county land, for places to target shoot or sight in their firearms, are strongly encouraged to attend one of the open houses and to get engaged in the development of this criteria.  The criteria will guide the future of what areas are open and what areas are closed to target shooting along the Front Range.
