The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors has voted to move forward with the development of an indoor firing range.
The Board agreed to have the range built on the Milton site, which is currently being used as an outdoor range for the University of Virginia.
The new indoor gun range facility will house 20 to 24 firing lanes, along with small classrooms, and is expected to be built with sound-cancelling material.
“We're moving into the design phase,” says Board Supervisor Jane Dittmar. “We're going to be looking for a procurement process to hire architects; at the same time simultaneously we are working with our partners, UVa and the city of Charlottesville to nail down the final aspects of our agreement.”
They are still in the design phase of the project, but they want to be done with construction by December of 2015.
