Covington VA –-( Last week the Goochland Planning Commission met one more time on the request for ORAPAX to have a sporting clays range.

I was unaware of the hearing until late in the day of the meeting. EM Greg Trojan attend for VCDL and reported back (thanks, Greg!) The hearing was a circus, according to Greg. The vote was 5 to 1 AGAINST the range. 🙁

The Conditional Use Permit request now goes before the Board of Supervisors, who can ignore the Planning Commission’s negative recommendation if they so choose and approve the range.

Greg noted that the antis turned out somewhere between 75 and 100 people, which was much more than our side had.


I expect the Board of Supervisors to hear the Conditional Use Permit request on Tuesday, December 4th. If you can come to the meeting, please plan on doing so to show support or to speak. We need to outnumber the antis. I will send out an alert once we have a firm date.

In the meantime, if you live in Goochland, contact your Board of Supervisors member to show support for the ORAPAX sporting clay range Conditional Use Permit request.
