Letter to the editor: objective reporting appreciated

To the editor:

Thank you for the great job of reporting on the RMA gun range hearings. Your objectivity was apparent.

The overriding issue was certainly the fitness of the location. All the other issues such a safety, property values etc. were important and were considered as they should have been. Along with many others in the community, I had significant concerns in all those areas. Each of them were actually parts of the argument against location.

I, along with a large contingent of neighbors, am not opposed to guns or training, only the location. But, that is what zoning is all about.

It was gratifying to see the discussion largely focused on the issue of location rather than personalities. That’s what makes the system work.

I am pleased with the outcome and with the way it was achieved.
