POWHATAN COUNTY, VA (WWBT) - The proposed shooting range in Powhatan County met new opposition Monday night.

A resolution was adopted opposing a proposed shooting range for State Police and other agencies.

Currently there are plans to build an 18 acre range and training facility off Old River Trail.

Hundreds of people have opposed it, but it is not up to the Board to make that decision. The Department of Environmental Quality gets the final say.
