Sussex County Shooting Range Conditional Use Permit

The Sussex County shooting range/conditional use permit issue will be back on the agenda for the Sussex County Board of Supervisors meeting on Thursday, January 21, 2010. The meeting is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at the General District Courtroom of the Sussex Judicial Center, 15080 Courthouse Road, Sussex, VA 23884.

It it important that gun owners who live in, or shoot in Sussex County, continue fighting any changes in the current ordinance in Sussex County concerning shooting ranges. Don't let the talk of current ranges being grandfathered distract you, they would only be grandfathered as long as no changes are made to existing ranges. It is not uncommon for a range to expand or make changes during the course of operation.

A large turnout at this meeting is the best way to get the message across to the Supervisors and the Planning Commission that no changes are needed to the existing ordinance. If you cannot attend the meeting, contact the Board at the following:
