Public meeting being held on proposed Waterbury gun range

Posted: Updated:

A public hearing has been scheduled on a proposed firing range in Waterbury.

The developer originally applied for a permit to open the firing range next to Sprague Elementary School on Thomaston Avenue.

The zoning commission approved the plans, but the board of education appealed.

Wednesday's hearing is about plans to build the gun range in a new location on Aurora Street away from the school.

The hearing will begin at 7 p.m. at City Hall.
