Whatcom County Council mulls future of Plantation Rifle Range

Costly maintenance and operations could prevent full reopening

The Plantation Rifle Range has been closed off-and-on for years as the county conducts cleanup at the site. The range is unusual in Washington, for its size and that it is one of two publicly owned and managed rifle ranges in the state. Whatcom County Council members are concerned about continuing to own and manage the facility. (Hailey Hoffman/Cascadia Daily News)
