What happened to Inland Fish and Game (Redlands, CA)? I went there a couple of weeks ago to get some zeros and it was deserted. I know they had some legal issues (like most ranges it seems) but was surprised to see that it was closed. Is this final or do they still have some options to explore? If this was asked before I apologize...just needed to know.

They (The board members of the range) screwed around and did not act quickly enough to make required changes to the range that were ordered by the court. The result of this worked well for the A-hole neighbor that had purchased the property next to the range with the intention of developing the property. He had purchased the property next to the range with the intention of filing a lawsuit against the range and having it shut down.

NEWS RELEASE – February 11, 2010

Inland Fish and Game Conservation Association (“IFG”)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE



Local Gun Club plans to resume Shooting


Despite attempts by land developer Hal Woods and Highland Fifth-Orange Partners LLC (“Woods”) to prevent Inland Fish and Game Conservation Association (“IFG”) from resuming shooting at the popular local sports shooting range, IFG has received preliminary approval from a court appointed referee to resume shooting on its pistol range. The referee, who was nominated by Woods and appointed by Judge Christopher Warner, is certified by the National Rifle Association (NRA) and is a certified Range Master.

In 2007, Woods filed a lawsuit against IFG alleging that birdshot was leaving the trap range and entering his new property. The trap range was laid out and approved by the building department back in the 1970’s and has been in continuous use since that time without any complaint from the previous owner. IFG is appealing the judgment, which awarded monetary damages to Woods. In the meantime, IFG is in the process of modifying the range to ensure that its continued operations are in compliance with new shooting range guidelines and the judgment.

Shooting activities have been temporarily suspended following the trial, while IFG performs regular maintenance and modifications to the facility. The club has remained open for social activities and Boy Scout meetings. Based on the preliminary approval by the referee, IFG expects to reopen for shooting in the very near future.

Many local residents and members of the club have expressed the opinion that the sole purpose of the lawsuit was to shut down the club so Woods would not have to implement sound mitigation measures during the construction process. Even if new home buyers in the proximity of the gun club are made aware of the gun club and its operating hours, the City will most likely still receive complaints about noise, which could result in further litigation.

The Planning Commission voted unanimously (6-0) to deny Woods’ project, citing to numerous problems with this high density project. The proposed project would consist of 133 homes, which would be built in close proximity to a landfill. A six lane roadway is also proposed to the north of the project.

Woods is expected to appeal the Planning Commission’s decision to the City Council.
IFG continues to urge the City of Highland to exercise its discretion to consider more appropriate uses for this site, such as employment-generating commercial or industrial uses.
