Kitsap County Range Ordinance
Posted July 22, 2014
Kitsap County has announced the following:
The Kitsap County Board of Commissioners will hold a Special Meeting and a Public Hearing on July 30, 2014, beginning at the hour of 3 PM, at the Silverdale Beach Hotel’s East and West Bay Room located at 3073 NW Bucklin Hill Road in Silverdale to consider amendments to the attached draft of the Operational Shooting Permit Ordinance.
To accommodate the general public’s work schedules, the Commissioners plan to keep the hearing open until the early evening with an intermission of a dinner break, which has not been set at this time. The latest revision is available from the county web site here.
There is a revised version of the proposed ordinance which as of this time will be the one discussed that evening. I encourage as many of you as can to attend that meeting and if you are so inclined to speak to the ordinance please do so. In short order we will be posting the club's official position on the revisions, we still need to digest these new changes. Note that this is quite different than what went up a few weeks ago. In very general terms, this is a positive change for us but we will give you more details shortly.
In the meantime, please consider attending in person. Experience tells us that there will be a dozen to twenty members of Kitsap Safe and Quiet, twenty to fifty members of the other clubs and a substantial number of other community members and of course a contingent of busy-bodies. We aren't having an attendance contest but the commissioners deserve to hear our perspective as well as the rest of their constituency. We have maintained a pretty even and considered approach throughout the process and many of you have presented your position to the commissioners but we are at the end of the process and now is a good time for all of us to be heard.
I will keep you posted as new info arrives.
