Newport officials targeting shooting range on site of former landfill
The Conservation Commission met this week, but tabled the discussion for an Oct. 1 public hearing, Town Manager Paul Brown said on Thursday.
In March of 2007, the Conservation Commission accepted a conservation easement on the majority of the property.The easement expires in March 2031, but the board is now asking the Conservation Commission to approve a change to the development restrictions to allow for the construction of a gun range at the site.
