MORGANTON, N.C. (Jan. 16, 2015) —  The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will hold a second informational meeting on Feb. 18, in Morganton, to discuss constructing a shooting range on the Linville Tract of the Pisgah Game Land in Burke County.
The meeting is scheduled from 6:30-8:30 p.m., and will be held at Municipal Auditorium located at 401 S. College Street.  
The proposed site for the range is near the intersection of N.C. 126 and Wolf Pit Road, north of Lake James, in Burke County. Plans for the range include a 25-yard pistol range and a 100-yard rifle range.
Commission staff will present another overview of the proposed shooting range and discuss additional sound studies that have been performed since the first meeting, which was held on June 16, 2014, in Marion.
The Commission will hear public comments on the proposed shooting range at the conclusion of the overview and sound study discussion. Following the meeting, Commission staff will present the project, along with public comments, to the Wildlife Commissioners for their consideration at the March 5 business meeting.
The proposed range is part of an initiative by the Wildlife Commission to develop and enhance public shooting facilities across the state.
