New firing range approved in Green Island

Posted:

GREEN ISLAND, N.Y. - A new commercial 14-lane indoor firing range is getting the go-ahead in the village of Green Island.

The proposal to expand the Veterans Gun Depot indoor shooting range was given unanimous final approval by the planning board Monday night.

Veterans Gun Depot opened six months ago on Lower Hudson Avenue in Green Island. Business had been so good the owner wanted to expand, moving one block up the road to a 7,500-square-foot empty trucking warehouse.

The newgun range is slated to open in mid-July.

The range initially was met with opposition about safety, being so close to a school and nearby homes. The board says despite a building permit, no more approvals will be needed.
