Present Land Use
Limited-Residential combined with Mobile Home and Building Site 40-Acre Minimum Lot Area (R-L-T-BA-40)
Document Description
The request is to change the zoning of the project site from the Limited-Residential combined with Mobile Home and Building Site 40-Acre Minimum Lot Area (R-L-T-BA-40) zone district to the Commercial Recreation (C-R) zone district and adopt a conceptual development plan for an outdoor gun range complex and gun club, including long-rifle firing lines and handgun bays with berms to serve as backstops, clay target trap and skeet shooting ranges, a 4,975-square-foot primary clubhouse with a 3,272-square-footattached covered patio area and a 1,025-square-foot attached caretaker’s residence, and a 699-square-foot law enforcement clubhouse with a 270-square-foot attached covered patio. Power for the facility would be provided primarily by roof-mounted solar arrays with diesel generators housed in generator buildings to augment energy needs. The two clubhouses and the caretaker’s residence would be served with on-site wastewater treatment systems, and potable water and fire suppression water from an on-site well(s). The range would be open 5 days a week from 8:00 a.m. until dark but in no case later than 8:00 p.m. Large events would be held intermittently with the largest event attracting up to 500 people. Other shooting sports events would typically attract between 30 and 200 people. Large shooting sports events would be held intermittently and may include RV overnight dry camping in a designated parking area. Onsite activity would be managed for environmental quality and safety. Certain long-range rifle targets would only be in use for events and all ranges would be managed by a Range Officer for safety during operation. The site would also be managed to prevent the spread of wildfire based on weather conditions by closing during red flag warning days and maintaining fuels and vegetation in accordance with recommendations and requirements for defensible space. Debris, including bullet shells, fragment, and casings, clay targets, etc., would be regularly collected and properly disposed.
