A meeting will be held tonight to inform the public of the progress towards establishing the proposed public shooting range in North Kona.

The meeting is scheduled for 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Community Meeting Hale at the West Hawaii Civic Center.

According to the state Department of Land and Natural Resources, a master plan and draft environmental assessment are being prepared for the project. The EA is being funded through the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act.

The project site is comprised of one square mile, or approximately 640 acres, in the Pu‘u Anahulu Game Management area mauka of Queen Ka‘ahumanu Highway. The site is located immediately adjacent to the West Hawai‘i sanitary landfill.

The range is anticipated to accommodate public rifle, pistol, archery, sporting clays, skeet, trap and airgun ranges. It is also expected to include a hunter education center, restrooms, picnic areas and parking.
