Regarding a request for approval of a site development plan for a CSPD firing range at 15905 Sniper Lane, Enumerations has the following comments:

1. The classroom building proposed for this parcel should use the address of 15905 Sniper Ln. The future control buildings and shelter canopies will require separate addresses and permits. These addresses can be assigned either in advance or at the time of plan review.

Floodplain has the following comments:

1. The floodplain area shown on page AS102 does not match our floodplain overlay. The area shown on page AS102 is much larger and in a different location than what we show. Our overlay indicates that all proposed structures are outside of the floodplain area and will not require a floodplain development permit. Contact Floodplain Administrator Keith Curtis (, 719-327-2898) with any questions regarding the floodplain in this area.

he 4th Infantry Division and the US Army Garrison Safety office are opposed to this development. This CSPD Training Range as it is designed poses a critical safety risk to Fort Carson personnel.
The Surface Danger Zone, (SDZ), for 5.56/.223 and 7.62/.308 ball ammunition is provided as an attachment. These SDZs show the potential for injury with deadly consequences. These impact zones would extend beyond across Route 1 and encompass Range 117 and Range 119. The dirt backstop is insufficient and would not meet the requirement to capture all rounds within the range footprint.
One alternative would be for the CSPD to design baffles into the design as a means of mitigation into the project. The baffles would prevent the projectiles from travelling the maximum distance that they are capable of. This maximum distance is used when calculating the surface danger zones.
The example provided below from the Department of Energy Range Design Criteria, a partially baffled outdoor range can reduce the SDZ by one half on the maximum range of the most powerful cartridge used.
“To change the size and shape of an SDZ, baffles may be installed. Partial and full baffle systems consist of the following components: overhead baffles, a canopy shield over firing points, bullet impact berm, and side berms, sidewalls, or side baffles. A fully baffled range must be constructed so all direct fire can be contained within the range (see Figures 7 and 8).”
