Goochland Planning Commission Defers Decision on Orapax

A crowd of over 100 packed three rooms last night for the public hearing on Orapax Hunting Preserve's application to open a sporting clay range on their nearly 700 acre property.  Proponents and opponents told the commission why Orapax should and should not be allowed to open a sporting clays range on their property with most of the opponents sighting reduced enjoyment of their property due to noise from the range.  One opponent sighted the fact that her husband suffers from severe PTSD and that the increased shooter would negatively affect his condition.  the closest neighbor is a mile from Orapax.

In the end, the planning commission deferred their decision and asked that a noise test be administered on the Orapax property. After receiving the test results, they will make a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors, who will make the final decision.
