National Guard moves to upgrade pistol range

According to environmental review, "the preferred action alternative is not expected to result in significant impacts to the current environmental setting.

However, additional data is required to assess whether or not training at several of the proposed new ranges and range improvements would increase the risk of projectile escapement off of installation boundaries."

The National Guard is also seeking improvements at facilities in Peekskill and Niagara Falls. The work is part of the New York National Guard's Range Complex Master Plan, according to information it provided.

A copy of the environmental impact statement is available at the Guilderland Public Library and can be downloaded from the Division of Military and Naval Affairs Web site at www.dmna.state.ny.us.

There will be a 30-day comment period beginning on Sunday, Feb. 8. Comments can be forwarded to Master Sgt. Corine Lombardo, at the New York State Division of Military and Naval Affairs, 330 Old Niskayuna Road, Latham 12110.

The comments will then be sent to the National Guard Bureau in Washington, D.C.""
