URCS Awaits City of Sacramento to Publish
"Request For Proposal"
March 3, 2015, Sacramento, CA
On February 17, the United Revolver Club of Sacramento (URCS) Executive Board met with Mr. James Combs, Director, Parks and Recreation, City of Sacramento. The meeting was ask by the URCS President David Strannard to receive an update on the current status of the James Mangan Rifle & Pistol Range. Mr. Combs advised that for several years the Range hasn't been maintained accordingly ...to standards set for public shooting ranges. The General Services Department has been asked to survey the Range to determine its condition and what is needed to reopen. He commented the Range is still classified as "Temporally Closed" at least until the General Services report is completed.
General Services report is expected to be completed by the middle of this month. At which time the City will formally publish a "Request for Proposal" to the general public. The report will include a detail list of items that need to be done, and standards to be followed in order to reopen and maintain the Range for the safety of the public. Mr. Combs also stated that the City doesn't currently have money budgeted for the Range to be cleaned nor to reopen it. The "Request for Proposal" will seek a private entity to pay for the cleanup and reopen the Range for "Recreation". Mr. Combs commented that due to the budget constants of the City they are moving towards private entities to run and maintain the City's public recreation facilities. The "Request for Proposal" is not out of the norm for the City.
It is the URCS Executive Board's opinion that the City at this point isn't interested in closing the range permanently. But rather the City isn't completely aware of what is need to clean and reopen the range. Until the General Services report is completed the City and URCS are not aware of what the true cost will be. URCS Executive Board is taking the position of keeping the communication open with the City. Finding out what the City will require to reopen the range. Once we know what the requirements are, we can begin to discuss our options. In the meantime we wish we had more to report, but do hope for your continued patience.
Please continue to follow us here and at our URCS Facebook Page for future updates.
