County Landfill To Be Used As Shooting Range

kimatv

A portion of county landfill property could be used by the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office and corrections officers for an outdoor shooting range and training facility. Nearby neighbors, like Gordon Martin, are concerned with the project. Plans call for a storage building, training facility, and two outdoor firing areas to be used at all times of the day and night. Dirt barriers up to 20 feet tall would be built to cut noise, but neighbors say it won’t be enough.  A public hearing is not required for the project because of the type of construction and zoning requirements, but neighbors can submit their concerns in writing.

Martin already started collecting signatures for a petition. Neighbors would have two weeks to appeal the county’s decision if the shooting range is approved. The county does not have a schedule on when it would be approved, but deputies hope to have it ready by summer.
