Dear Commissioners Dean, Brotherton and Sullivan,

In order to preserve the quality of life in Jefferson County, we urge you to adopt the Planning Commission’s recommendations for regulations on shooting facilities:

  • Shooting ranges must be surrounded by a minimum 16-foot high above-grade noise barrier;
  • Shooting ranges must be completely fenced to a minimum height of 8 feet;
  • Organizational training for armed forces, law enforcement, or paramilitary organizations is prohibited;
  • All outdoor shooting must occur only between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.;
  • It is unlawful at these sites to land any aircraft or to discharge firearms from an aircraft or drone;
  • They must provide a minimum 500-yard buffer around any lake greater than 20 acres in size.

The Tarboo Ridge Coalition and your neighbors in Jefferson County thank you for your help! If you have not already done so, please sign our petition requesting Attorney General Bob Ferguson's support to help us protect our county.
