Nov. 7, 2019--The firm of C. Vargas & Associates has been awarded the contract to plan and design the new County public gun range. Funded by a grant from Colorado Parks and Wildlife, the consulting team will work with County Staff and the Sportsmen Club to develop the preliminary range design and conceptual Business Plan. The planning process will define the goals, establish strategies and develop a plan which integrates the operational parameters.
By providing a minimum of 15 new public shooting lanes, the Forest Service has agreed to close recreational shooting areas in less suitable locations in the National Forest north of I-70. The new range will be located on Stanley Road adjacent to the existing Sportsmen Club operation.
The second phase of the project will involve the development of a preliminary schematic range design and an “open house” will be held (date to be announced) to gather community input on the design. A sound mitigation plan and operational plan will also be included in the planning effort.
The project team includes C. Vargas and Associates, Hall-N-Hall, JVA Consulting Engineers and Wave Engineering. Contact Lisa Leben at email@example.com or 303-679-2434 for questions or comments.
