Shooting Range Relocation To Cost $18-Million In Three Phases

 
 
LETHBRIDGE - Officials with the Fish and Game Shooting Range presented relocation plans on Monday and are asking for city funding.

In 2014, the group is looking for $3.5 million for land acquisition and design costs, $9.6 million in 2018 for construction of the shooting ranges and $5.1 million in 2022 for an administration building and indoor shooting range.

Of the $18-million dollar project, the group plans to provide three million dollars towards the cost. A million would come from fundraising efforts and two million would be payed back to the city as a loan.

Range Operator Allan Friesen feels the city and taxpayer should pay for the project because the range provides a great value for residents, whether they use the range or not. He says "there's a potential that somebody could, using a rural area just outside on the fringe of Lethbridge, not use a firearm effectively or safely and then have a bullet end up into Lethbridge, so the big value we provide, no matter where you are in the City of Lethbridge, is that we drive that traffic into that controlled environment where we can protect the city residents by keeping those bullets inside."

Council will debate all the proposed projects in early May to come up with the capital budget.
