Due to the complex urban interface, increasing populations and increase in recreational shooting there is a need for public land management agencies to work collaboratively to manage and provide safe and responsible Recreational Sport Shooting (RSS) across the Southern Front Range of Colorado. The Federal, State, and County land management agencies from the Southern Front Range have agreed to partner and develop an RSS strategy.
The partners will prepare a recreational sport shooting strategy within a project management structure that includes a Southern Shooting Partnership Board with a Chair and Co-Chair to lead the development of the RSS strategy.
