State officials say Basalt gun range issues remain in their sights
A local task force is diligently pondering the future of the Basalt shooting range and state officials claim the issue remains a priority despite turnover in three key posts.
Colorado Parks and Wildlife appointed six people with strong ties to Basalt to the task force late last year. They have been meeting about once per month to look at everything from relocating the facility to making changes to boost its compatibility at the current location.
“I’ve been really happy with everyone on the board. They want a positive outcome,” said Perry Will, the area wildlife manager who oversees the Basalt State Wildlife Area and its shooting range.
“Everything’s on the table there,” Will continued. “Whatever comes out of this — there will be improvements.”
