Should a No Shooting Zone or a Controlled Shooting Zone be established for the southwestern shore of Eld Inlet? That’s the question area residents can help the Board of County Commissioners answer at a community meeting on July 30th.
“The Board of County Commissioners has received requests from several residents who live along or near the southwestern shore of Eld Inlet to prohibit the discharge of firearms in the vicinity of their homes. Others have spoken out against the zoning change,” according to a press release from the Commissioners.
In addition to the Board, Representatives from the Thurston County Planning Department, Sheriff’s Department, and the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife will be on hand to educate residents on the current policies and procedures and to answer any questions. Mike Gaffney, Associate Director of the Washington State University Department of Governmental Studies and Services will act as facilitator.
