Virtual meeting concerning recreational sport shooting, April 13

Boulder County, Colo. – The Northern Front Range Recreational Sport Shooting Management Partnership (NFRRSSMP) has scheduled a Virtual Meeting for April 13, 6-8 p.m. The Partnership is comprised of representatives from Larimer, Boulder, Gilpin and Clear Creek counties as well as the U.S. Forest Service and Colorado Parks and Wildlife. Anyone with an interest in the Partnership’s Strategy for moving forward is encouraged to watch the April 13 meeting.

The Virtual Meeting will be webstreamed to provide a chance for as many people as possible to participate. Interested members of the public can watch the meeting live on April 13, 6-8 p.m. at http://bit.ly/BChearings. The meeting will be recorded and can be viewed at a later time and will be posted to the Partnership’s website, www.SportShootingPartners.org

The goal of the Virtual Meeting is to gauge if the Partnership is moving in the right direction and if there are other components the NFRRSSMP should be considering or other comments with regard to our future plans. This meeting will be limited to a discussion of the Partnership’s Strategy. For site-specific shooting conflict concerns please contact local law enforcement or the U.S. Forest Service.

The Partnership Strategy:

  1. Each county (Larimer, Boulder, Gilpin and Clear Creek) will identify potential designated shooting areas.
  2. The Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests will begin an analysis on how to provide safe, sustainable Recreational Sport Shooting opportunities while providing for the health and safety of recreationists and residents.
  3. The Partnership will provide information and education for safe and responsible shooting.

We are asking anyone interested in the recreational sport shooting issue in Larimer, Boulder, Clear Creek and Gilpin counties to watch short videos about the NFRRSSMP and read the Strategy prior to commenting. Comments submitted should only be about the Strategy. After reviewing the information, interested parties are asked to submit questions, comments, concerns or other thoughts about the Strategy before April 13 by filling out a form on the website.

The comments submitted will be compiled before the April 13 meeting and posed to the Partners at the meeting for their response and discussion. This facilitated manner will allow for the most comments to be addressed as possible and will allow the meeting to remain on topic.

A few “live” comments will be taken during the Virtual Meeting and can be submitted via email, Facebook or Twitter between 6 and 8 p.m. These select comments will be asked directly to the Partners.

Those interested can learn more about the Partnership, follow up on meeting details, sign up for emails,  and connect via social media at www.SportShootingPartners.org, or by contacting the Project Coordinator, Garry Sanfaçon, at info@sportshoortingpartners.com or calling 720-564-2642.
