   SUMMIT COUNTY – The Summit County Public Shooting Range will close for noise mitigation construction on September 19
   thfor an estimated 60 - 90 d......ays . Except for limited law enforcement training as needed , the facility will be fully closed during this time .  
   The range , located on property owned by Summit County Government near the county landfill , also known as the Summit County Resource Allocation Park ( SCRAP ) , is managed by the County in cooperation with the Summit Range Association .
   In the Summer of 2020 , the range saw a marked increase in the use of the range , leading to a large increase in noise complaints . Working with the Summit Range Association , range users , and community members , the Board of County Commissioners contracted with Tru Horizons to install temporary noise mitigation to monitor and test its effectiveness .
   In February 2022 , Summit County applied for and was awarded a state grant to offset the costs for constructing a more permanent mitigation solution . The $150 , 000 grant , from the Shooting Range Development Grants Program of Colorado Parks & Wildlife , covers nearly half the $315 , 000 project estimate for this specific phase of work .  
   The project involves enclosing the existing pistol and rifle canopies over each of the firing lines with a proprietary sound - dampening material . The same material will also be used in a sound mitigation fence adjacent to the local law enforcement range .  
   “I’m looking forward to moving this mitigation strategy forward so that we can continue to provide a safe environment while balancing the concerns of some community members around noise , ” said Summit County Commissioner Tamara Pogue .
   Officials also advised hunters and other recreational shooters to use other ranges during this period . “We understand the urgency in getting this project completed and will do everything we can to get this work completed this year to avoid long term closures in the future , ” said Aaron Byrne , Director of the SCRAP facility .
