Undeveloped portion of existing shooting range/ RF GH/ 3.3-2.1
Document Description
A conditional use permit to allow the expansion of an existing shooting range (Section 19.42.030.C) in an RF GH (Recreation-Forestry-Geologic Hazard Combining) District. The project site is a 5.72-acre parcel of record that is currently developed with a shooting range. Existing development on the site is located on the west half of the parcel and consists of a shooting range with 58 positions, a 3,200 square-foot building that is used as a meeting room as well as for weddings and other types of parties, and 58 paved parking spaces. The existing development has been on site for approximately 35 years. The shooting range is used by various law enforcement and government agencies for pistol and rifle practice. The range faces north and is bordered on the north, east, and west by a 12-15 foot-high dirt berm. The range is 150 feet deep and is divided into several areas. A normal shooting group consists of 10-20 persons, with several site monitors. Pistols and rifles of various calibers are fired. Firing at night under "no light" or "low light" conditions is common, although no firing is conducted after 10 pm or before 7 am. The applicant is proposing to develop the east half of the parcel with a separate range consisting of 100 and 150 yard lengths. The development is not intended as an increase in the number of users, although 11 new shooting positions would be developed, and would operate under the same conditions as the existing range. Sewage disposal would be provided by an existing septic tank and leach field system and water supply would be provided by an existing well. Access is currently provided by a driveway at the southwest corner of the parcel. A new driveway is proposed near the southeast corner of the parcel.
